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!

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

Can't actually believe the below review is writing about this hotel - maybe got hotels mixed up! 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!
