I stayed at the hotel 4 nights during August 2016. Its is very clean and very well located. There is a serenity and calmness in this hotel that I enjoyed very much.It's an old palazzo but very elegant with frescos and high ceiling etc. The breakfast was excellent and the facilities in the room and bathroom as well.

Beautiful well appointed Hotel. Rooms spacious and quiet. The breakfast room is amazing, eating in an old ballroom every morning with such ornate walls and ceilings definitely starts your day off in a great way, along with a wonderful breakfast. Staff are very helpful and courteous, location is excellent, train station only 5 minute walk even with luggage. If you... More

This hotel is very impressive when you first enter but it goes downhill a bit after that. The rooms are a good size but need updating. Our bathroom became like a swimming pool when the shower was used (room 401). It must be a nightmare for the cleaning staff. The carpets in the corridor was very dirty and stained. The... More

My wife and I enjoyed the hotel. Good breakfast and good service. Nice roof top outside lounge with great view. A\C ok. An older hotel and a bit of a maze to get around. Don't forget to order cappuccino from the breakfast staff and they will get you a nice and hot cup!

I think my title sums it up really - you are perfectly located for many of the 'must see' items on your list, and also a 2 min walk from a cracking set of restaurants (make sure you eat at Za Za!). Reasonably priced, rooms nice, make sure you have a drink on the roof terrace (opens daily from 6:30pm)... More

We spent four days in early August at this charming and well managed hotel. We rolled our bags easily to the hotel from the Firenze train station which is five minutes away. Located on a quiet street it is at once easy to get to most of Florence's major attractions yet secluded enough to make you feel relaxed and a... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hotel Boscolo Astoria Firenze is the ideal choice for your stay: you'll be accommodated in the rooms of the Palazzo Gaddi and Palazzo Arrighetti, historic buildings belonging to noble Florentine families, where art recounts the passage of centuries every step of the way. Indeed, it was while living at Palazzo Gaddi that the great English author John Milton found inspiration for his masterpiece, Paradise Lost, and in these very rooms that he wrote it. The noble past of Hotel Boscolo Astoria Firenze is also reflected in its location: the church of Santa Maria Novella, abounding in great art, is right nearby (as is the convenient railway station with the same name), and a short stroll will take you directly to Florence's historic centre. An undeniable advantage that puts the most beautiful areas of the city right at your fingertips. The prestigious salons of the luxury Hotel Boscolo Astoria Firenze, decorated in original Florentine Baroque style, are the perfect backdrop for important events. The restaurant will pamper you with typical Tuscany and Mediterranean dishes. ... more   less
