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!

We booked our trip thru Groupon so didn't have much say as to our accommodations. Our travel agent asked us if we wanted to "upgrade" but we decided to stick with what was offered. Glad we did. Rooms were more than adequate. Clean. Staff very friendly. Breakfast buffet was wonderful and they even packed us a "to go" bag on... More

I thought it was a very nice hotel, sure it wasn't in the vein of a florentine building, but it was an excellent property. Staff, food facilities, all really very good. The only thing that let it down was the breakfast, by international standards, it was pretty basic. They provided boiled eggs, and anything else was an extra cost, pretty... More

This hotel is so modern & beautiful (Just take a look at my pictures!), Our room was a great size with sliding doors on to a MASSIVE balcony with small seating area! Balcony overlooked the outside bar area which is beautiful with a... More

It is in a great location which is within walking distance to a variety of shops, restaurants and beautiful sights in the middle of Florence. The rooms were beautiful with twin beds that could be pushed together for one queen bed.... More

We stayed here for three nights. The hotel is clean and functional and service is very friendly. The rooms are perhaps a little tired looking and fairly small. But it does the job! Breakfast is adequate. The courtyard is a pleasant place to chill out in. However contrary to other reviews, I wouldn't say it is particularly central- a good... More

This is a fine hotel located two blocks from the Duomo town center. Everything is well within walking distances. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The shower was a little tight for a broad shouldered man but otherwise, quite efficient. Not being a fan of continental breakfasts, we were disappointed with the breakfast but the servicing staff made up for... More
