The room they had me in would have been tiny even by NYC standards. It had a bed that would generously been described as a twin and the bathroom and tv were extremely dated. If you're looking for a convenient place to sleep for cheap this is your hotel, otherwise pay the extra 20 euro to stay somewhere else.

The hotel is very near the railway station and the bus station. You can walk from the hotel to most of the main attractions.Reception was courteous and efficient and the room was clean and comfortable with good facilities and TV, Breakfast was basic but adequate and anyway there are enough eateries in Florence! For its price (affordable) and rating (3*)... More

The room was very clean, the continental breakfast had the best coffee in town; but the location took the crown: a block away from the train station and within walking distance to the Uffizi, De Medici, Palazzo Vecchio. No need for public transportation, just good shoes and lots of leg work. Will definitely stay there again

This is a hotel situated very central in Firenze, easy to reach by train and by car. We stayed there 2 days in July and enjoyed Firenze, The hotel is quite nice, have seen its better days but shows atmosphere. Some renovations could have been made. The breakfast is average and the coffe was served with old milk. Better yo... More

The room had plenty of space and was very comfortable and affordable. The soundproofing is superb. With the windows closed, you cannot hear any cars even though it is close to the train station. The breakfast was perfect. Try the hot chocolate. :)

We stayed here with our grandchildren, we had two rooms and whilst the rooms were basic they were extremely clean and had everything we needed. Breakfast was good with plenty to choose from and a good selection of bread, pastries, eggs all the usual array but nothing pre-packed! We choose this hotel for its close proximity to both the train... More

Hotel Boccaccio is located near the Santa Maria Novella train station which is helpful if you are traveling in and out of the city by train. I should note that for the majority of our time in Florence we stayed away from the station area and that is what I would recommend but for our last night we needed to... More

Can I just start by saying that I am a fussy traveller. This has been my first trip into europe and for staying at a 3star hotel. Hotel Bocaccio has superceded my expectations in every way possible. Firstly, the bathroom was modern, clean and very very nice. The room was neat and quaint, with a beautifully functioning air conditioner. I... More

Small Dark Room Tiny Bathroom Uncomfortable Beds. The breakfast was just ok, the breakfast staff was very nice, but very limited variety of food. It was close to the train station and easy to get to the sights in Florence. The front desk was very helpful in directions and suggestions. We had an interior room, had the windows open in... More
