Super easy stroll when arriving at the train station. The room was clean and the breakfast good. But I am not sure I would stay there again. The street felt really busy with city buses flying around the corner. The windows did a great job of sound reduction. Nice to have wifi but there were no English TV stations. We... More

Location perfect, across the road from train station and bus that goes to Pisa airport, less than 10 minutes from centre. Triple room size fine, great windows overlooking interior patio, quieter than the front. Decoration very Italiany, dark and heavy colours, I prefer more basic, modern and plain, lighting very poor. Vote lost a star as mattress a bit stained... More

The outside of the hotel is not very attractive but when you walk in you are transported into Florence art and history. The hotel amenities and rooms are decorated with style. THe beads were hard. The breakfast was good. The hotel is located near the Central station, next to the bus station, in a walking distance to the convention centre... More

We travelled to Florence from Venice on the FRECCIAARGENTO. On arriving SMN station, we lugged our luggage through the Eastern exit and walked another 70m or so before reaching the hotel. The room initially assigned to us had a broken a/c. We informed management and was asked to stay in present room for the 1st night. The next day they... More

The hotel can be reached easily on foot in 3 minutes from he central station of S. Maria Novella Location, good service and very clean rooms. I stayed in the Double Superior room. The Buffet breakfast is also very good.

A three minute walk from the railway station, this small hotel provides all the basics. We had a rather noisy night in #205 and asked to be switched. The hotel did so immediately and we found ourselves in #204 which proved to be a much better choice. Comfortable beds, a no-frills basic bathroom and a continental breakfast all for a... More

Last September I needed to find a hotel near the train station. After checking out many hotels on line I found hotel Boccaccio. When I first arrived by Stefano and later by the owner Domenico. What great people the two of them like talking to friends. Anything I needed was never a problem and helped anyway they could. Will stay... More

For it's pricing of €110 a night for the deluxe room, is indeed value for money! Near to train station, big and spacious with excellent service! Couldn't have asked for more.. The only downside was maybe that the breakfast spread is quite limited, but generally it's a really good hotel with great experience.

Hotel off the beaten path of main area of Florence. Quiet, nice, but small rooms. Inconvenient outlet placement for charging phones, etc. Modern bathroom with hairdryer. Very nice sitting area in the lounge. Owner accommodating and helpful with finding directions to our next destination.

This was the second time we have stayed at Hotel Boccaccio when we have flown out of Florence. It is very close to the train and bus stations, as well as city tour busses and walking venues. We would certainly recommend it for longer stays as well. Accomodating staff and "niceties" in the room.
