If you were planning on getting any sleep in this hotel you will be sadly mistaken! The beds are 2 singles pushed together to make a double and the mattress is terrible! We unfortunately had to stay here for 5 night and it was the worst nights of our lives! My partner and I got barely 3hrs of sleep on the first night and I'm sure as all travelers know after days and hours of traveling to your destination all you want is a good bed to sleep in.
The next day we went to talk to their staff asking if there were better beds or if there was any alternative. The man behind the counter just looked at us and was very rude on saying all beds are the same in a tone like 'what do you want me to do about it' after much convincing he allowed us a couple of extra pillows and blankets so we could 'soften' the bed.
After we attempted to make the beds slightly more comfortable we ventured out about 1pm still trying to catch up on any sleep we could on the concrete hard beds and had a bike your around Florence which was beautiful until I was sick due to the lack of sleep the night before and had to end the tour early. NOT IMPRESSED!
The following nights since then were terrible to say the least! Both of us waking up constantly due to hips and shoulders aching (keep in mind were in our mid 20s) because it actually feels worse then concrete!
So not only are the beds terrible but add on top of that Mosquitos! We had to go out and buy bug spray for the nights.
I've done a lot of traveling in my life and this isn't my idea of a holiday! Having sleepless nights getting bitten all over and rude staff! This isn't what I signed up for!
On the plus side which isn't very big is that it is very well located able to walk to everything which was handy.
There were heaps of hotels in the same location my suggestion if you are looking at this hotel would be to go on google street view and look at the other hotels!
Please avoid hotel Boccaccio at all costs! Not worth it! If you want a good nights sleep don't look here!!!!
