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

I stayed here in October 2013 and was visiting Florence for the first time. The location of the hotel is fantastic and it's easy to get to from the train station. All the main attractions of Florence are in walking distance and the staff were lovely and friendly. As some other people have noted, there's no elevator and quite a... More

Hotel Accademia is centrally located in Florence, easy walking distance to major attractions, lots of restaurants, and great gelato. It is a clean, no-frills hotel (with air conditioning) and serves a good breakfast with great coffee. We had a triple room that was quite large. One of the best things about the hotel was the staff, who were very friendly... More

We stayed one night after a long flight into Venice and a train ride to Florence. Check in was smooth and once we figured our way around the winding hallways, everything was satisfactory. Enjoyed dinner at the restaurant to the right as you leave the hotel and drinks were very good on the left of the stairs. We had a... More

The staff at the Hotel Accademia were exceptionally helpful, courteous and knowledgeable about nearby restaurants and attractions. (Special thanks to Paulo, who helped us find a great place to eat on a night when we were very tired and hungry.) Our room was clean and comfortable. As other reviewers have noted, the floor plan is kind of quirky, and part... More

Small, local hotel with about 20 rooms. Interesting floor plan complete with marble stairs and wood floors. There is no elevator (typical of small hotels) but the climb isn't crushing unless you have many suitcases. My wife and I carried all of our stuff up easily in one trip. We overlooked the soccer stadium and the field lights were on... More
