The hotel was located just a short walk from the novella train station on a side street that oozes old school retail cache and is near the Duomo. It was Mayday weekend, a holiday that doesn't exist in faraway Texas, and room availability in the city was thin. Though the room was expensive I was thinking "lucky me"--until we checked... More

Stayed two nights with a tour in this small hotel with unusual layout of rooms. Although the hotel and rooms were clean, the place appeared to be in need of updating. Two of the three available outlets in our room did not work. Had to unplug the refrigerator to charge both of our phones at night. Bedding looked old and... More

We spent two nights here as part of a tour. The location of the Accademia is pretty stellar. It is about 1 minute off Piazza San Lorenzo and just off the doorstep to the Medici Chapels, which was our first stop here when we got to Florence. Just on the other side of the San Lorenzo Market is a short... More

The location is excellent in the historic centre, a few minutes walk from Chiesa di San Lorenzo and an easy walk from the train station. All other attractions are within walking distance. There’s a good choice of restaurants in the street outside the hotel too. Room was comfortable, if a bit on the small side. Breakfast buffet was good with... More

It was a pleasant surprise to have such a large room and bathroom. Our room (18) was very clean, quiet and comfortable. The actual hotel entrance is a set of stairs up to the second floor reception area. The walk to our room was through a neat maze of hallways which was a little confusing at first but the staff...

The location of this hotel is excellent and a stone's throw from the Duomo, which makes it easy to find even from a distance. The breakfast has good variety and the staff was welcoming. The room was not as clean as I would have liked (linens not changed unless asked as we were there for 8 nights) and it is... More

On the positive side, the hotel is within walking distance to many of the best attractions in Florence. Our room was clean, the bed was comfortable, the bath updated, the breakfast good, and the staff friendly. On the negative side, the room was dimly lit (a common occurrence in Europe), there is no elevator, and if your room is located... More

We spent two nights at the Hotel Accademia. On the upside the location is OUTSTANDING. It is close to many of the top sights in Florence and allows you quick travel to and from with the convenience of midday stops back at your room. The hotel itself is curious, perhaps quaint (?). It begins with a trip to the lobby... More

We spent three nights at the Hotel Accademia and while we found the location convenient to many of the sites around Florence, we found the hotel to be lacking in many respects and left very disappointed. When we arrived, to our surprise and through no request from us, we found they had booked us in a "three person" room and... More
