“Close to station.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012

- points
Room was a bit small. Came with standing shower. Bed and pillows were soft ( depends on individual preference as some might like it to be soft). Wifi is nit free

+ points
Thick bath towel, breakfast spread was quite good. Huge pot of coffee. Walking distance to stations and main attractions. Discount card at dining which is located nearby the hotel.

Overall: price might be a little pricey esp no free wifi

Hotel Boccaccio is exactly what it presents itself to be, and what you would expect from a small boutique-style hotel in a city such as Florence (perhaps even a bit better for the reasonable prices). My room was spotless and the entire hotel is very well maintained and very clean (my first priority). The owner (Andrea, a male) is extremely accommodating and very pleasant, providing a great map of the city and lots of useful information for major sites to see in the city. And at only a few minute-walk from the train station, the location of this hotel couldn't be better if you are traveling by train.

Don't miss the outdoor terrace on the first floor. This is an excellent place to enjoy an afternoon glass of wine or relax and read for a few minutes in a quiet location amidst a busy city. Breakfast (included) provided usual options and fresh, quality food.

I look forward to returning to Hotel Boccaccio during my next visit to Florence! Andrea has been in the hotel business for a number of years and definitely works hard to make Hotel Boccaccio a great choice for your stay in Florence.

Stayed at this hotel for two days/two night in mid-July. Great location...if you plan a lot of activities out of city, since it's right down from bus and train stations. That's also its downfall. While it's a safe walk along Via Della Scalla into the historic centre, I wouldn't recommend turning left out the front doors to see what was that way (including the recommended ristorante owned by hotel proprietor); the area seemed very dodgy, even in daytime. Also, not much worthy by way of cafes and gelaterias around hotel or along that walk into the centre till you pass Piazza Santa Maria Novella. The breakfast buffet was the bare minimum, the room was typically tiny, but the staff were efficient and attentive...except for not knowing anything about how to get to the MotoGP race, and I booked this hotel specifically through the MotoGP website.

Room Tip: Try to ask for an interior room; you're not losing much of a view but you're likely gaining...

The hotel is within walking distance of all the main attractions and feels safe. The train station, bus hub, and taxi hub are conveniently one street away from the hotel. Dominico was extraordinarily helpful in pointing out great places we had missed in our previous trip to Florence; I'm grateful I listened to his suggestions. There's a cafe across the street for breakfast and a a deli (Alimentari) around the corner. Grab a sandwich and take advantage of the quintessential Italian patio that they have at the hotel. My friends and I really enjoyed the quiet and relaxed atmosphere of this hotel.

Five of us, mum, dad, son(26), daughter(32), and son's girlfriend spent 2 nights in this hotel from 2nd - 4th July (we were in Tuscany for a family wedding). It was just a few mins from the train/bus station and perfect for visiting all the sights including the Duomo ( be sure and climb those 463 steps to top of Dome!), the Accedamia, Uffici, Ponte Vecchio and all those beautiful piazzas etc Thanks to email from hotel with directions from train station we got there within 5 mins.
The staff were very welcoming and professional. The breakfast was as expected, with plenty cereal, ham,cheese, yoghurt, pastries etc good coffee but no fresh fruit. It was great to have the air conditioning already on in our bedrooms when we arrived about 6pm very hot and sticky after flight and bus trip from Pisa! Rooms were not very big but perfectly adequate (and spotless) for our short stay and we got a good internet rate by booking directly with hotel website.
A big 'thank you' to the gentleman who rang the Accademia for me when I discovered I had lost my 'sticky note' with my reservation no. on it! Also the other gentleman who checked us in gave me a map without I having to ask for it and circled all the interesting sights with directions on how to get to them, again I didnt have to ask him, so well done on welcome and efficiency.
We would definitely return to Hotel Boccaccio
