We stayed for two nights at the Athenaeum and it was perfect. A great location, about 5 - 10 minute stroll to the centre of Florence. Quiet location, lovely spacious room and we were made very welcome. The breakfast was delicious, everything you could wish for and we didn't need to eat again until the evening. The rooms were very... More

This hotel is a bit further north than the Duomo and most of the restauarants and attractions but it's still walkable and I highly recommend renting a bike to get around as you can see the whole city this way. The upside is that it is very quiet in the area at night and away from all the college kids... More

I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The staff is friendly and very helpful. I took my chances the first time I stayed in florence at one of the more "historic" hotels and it was terrible. I highly recommend skipping the high priced historic hotels and enjoy your stay at a more modern, updated hotel such as this.

We booked a superior room at this place for my girlfriend's birthday and it was a painful experience. The lady at the front desk was fine when we checked in although it was pretty slow. The superior room was supposed to come with a complementary fruit basket and a "special courtesy kit" but it was not in the room when... More

This was my third visit to the Athenaeum. As always we were impressed with the hotel and the service. The room was large and very clean and, importantly, had fully functioning air-conditioning which in the Florence heat was greatly appreciated. The breakfast was excellent and always well stocked. As well as the quality of the hotel itself, another reason for... More

Friendliness, willingness, and generous nature are what made the Athenaeum such a pleasure to stay in. For business, very clean, quiet and comfortable, a good breakfast, and effective wifi, but it was the staff who really made the difference to this stay, from across from the reception, the bar and breakfast service. Hotels forget, that staying away from home is... More

We stayed there recently and found the hotel to be a good four star hotel that is walking distance to all attractions in Florence. It is clean, comfortable, and well maintained hotel with friendly staffs. In comparison it is like Courtyard Marriott in smaller scale having smaller size room and elevator. The breakfast is typical European style.

I spent four nights at this hotel with a friend who has already stayed here before. The location is truly superb as it's walking distance from the main centre and all the shops. Staff are friendly, offered us a free upgrade, looked after our luggage for a few hours after we checked out but haven't left the city yet and... More

If you're looking for a hotel that's close to the heart of Florence and has great amenities, this is the place. Having a parking garage on site was a bonus. We were able to walk easily to museums and restaurants. The staff was friendly and helped us with dinner reservations both evenings we were there. I highly recommend Athenaeum!
