The staff was great and very helpful and knowledgable , especially Cecile. Good location, our room very nice too. we could hear church bells, nice touch. Really a gem in the heart of the city. The lobby areas are like artwork. Loved it !

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

We stayed four nights in March-if you want to stay very very close to museums, cathedrals and central river then this 3 star does the trick. It is clean, and reception staff were very friendly and helpful for us, printing off train timetables, and getting more blankets and even providing a heater for the room when I felt the cold. (Room was heated at night) Rooms are not individually air conditioned. Breakfast was adequate with simple, limited choices-quite good enough but don't expect gourmet treats. Room (we stayed in No 214) was adequate, small basic double with desk and two chairs, but not really enough room to sit anywhere but on the bed -this room looked out over the street (which was quiet at this time of year). Bathroom worked with small bath, shower, bidet, sink and loo but was very awkward space and small - not a luxury experience but the shower was powerful with strong flow of water which was hot and if the plumbing gurgled a bit, it did all work!. Good value if you get a good deal for the basic room and want a three star hotel in heart of city attractions, that is clean, and friendly. Don't expect any luxury though, and be prepared for small spaces with not much room to swing cats! Shared balcony area looked pleasant but too cold for us to use this March.

We had 4 nights at the Hotel Botticelli and thought it was fantastic. The location was fantastic - walking distance to all the sights and museums with some great restaurants and bars nearby. OK, the room was fairly small but it was always clean and had everything we needed and with so much to see in the city we weren't spending a great deal of time there anyway! The staff were probably the best aspect of the hotel - they gave us some great tips on places to go and were always very pleasant, polite and helpful.

We got a really good off-season deal on this hotel at about £50 per night, so my review is based on the quality I'd expect from that kind of price.

Close to the train station, and to sights was the best part. About a 15 minute walk to Ponte Vecchio. Our room was tiny, and noisy from traffic. Very basic sums it up the best. Definitely 2 star. Breakfast had limited choices and not the best coffee.

I just had a 4 nights stay at the hotel Botticelli, and what a nice stay that was.
My room was at the top floor, where there are only two rooms.
It was spacy with a view over the rooftops - and with a newly restored bathroom.
Though I travelled alone I felt safe in the area, even at night.

Easy walks to all sites of the city, and plenty of cafes and restaurants.
I would stay there again - thanks to Cecilia at the reception !

We spent 4 nights at the Hotel Botticelli. It is very conventiently situated for the station, tourist attractions, shops and restaurants - everything is just a short walk away. The staff were all very polite, efficient, friendly and helpful. The rooms were spotless, well eqipped, comfortable and nicely decorated. Breakfast was the usual cold buffet - not very exciting but no complaints either as everything was clean and the service was good. There was a reasonably priced mini bar in the room and free internet access was available. My only gripe would be that we found it hard to sleep at night as it was so noisy outside the hotel although I do realise that this is out of their control. The hotel is in a small street but it is in the middle of a city so take ear plugs!

We have just had 4 nights stay and would definitely return.
The hotel is in a small street and within very easy walking to all the main sights.
It is approximately 10 minutes walk from the main railway station. We did not find it difficult to find as somebody has said. It is fairly direct if you follow Via Saint Antonino
It is close to the central market -which is worth a visit and several streets of market stalls adjacent but we did not consider the area to be run down as has been said in another review.
It is clean,comfortable,with good linen and towels.
The bathrooms were good with shower gels etc provided.
The breakfast we found to be good with plenty of choice.
The staff were exceptionally helpful and very friendly.
We initially had a room at the front which overlooks the street and it did get a little noisy.
There were others in similar rooms and they had no problem.
However we did ask to be moved and they changed us to another room at the back.
This could, however, be difficult in high season.
Yes, some of the rooms are very small but this is a hotel in an old city and this feature is fairly normal in this type of hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter
