The hotel can be reached easily on foot in 3 minutes from he central station of S. Maria Novella Location, good service and very clean rooms. I stayed in the Double Superior room. The Buffet breakfast is also very good.

A three minute walk from the railway station, this small hotel provides all the basics. We had a rather noisy night in #205 and asked to be switched. The hotel did so immediately and we found ourselves in #204 which proved to be a much better choice. Comfortable beds, a no-frills basic bathroom and a continental breakfast all for a great price. This hotel provides good value and its location is wonderful and within a 10 minute walk to all the main downtown attractions and restaurants. No need for a cab!

Last September I needed to find a hotel near the train station. After checking out many hotels on line I found hotel Boccaccio. When I first arrived by Stefano and later by the owner Domenico. What great people the two of them like talking to friends. Anything I needed was never a problem and helped anyway they could. Will stay there next September. The breakfast was very good. The room very clean and big enough for my needs. Can't wait till I get back.

For it's pricing of €110 a night for the deluxe room, is indeed value for money! Near to train station, big and spacious with excellent service! Couldn't have asked for more.. The only downside was maybe that the breakfast spread is quite limited, but generally it's a really good hotel with great experience.

Hotel off the beaten path of main area of Florence. Quiet, nice, but small rooms. Inconvenient outlet placement for charging phones, etc. Modern bathroom with hairdryer. Very nice sitting area in the lounge. Owner accommodating and helpful with finding directions to our next destination.

This was the second time we have stayed at Hotel Boccaccio when we have flown out of Florence. It is very close to the train and bus stations, as well as city tour busses and walking venues. We would certainly recommend it for longer stays as well. Accomodating staff and "niceties" in the room.

I'm not terribly fussy when it comes to a hotel room. I just want somewhere that is conveniently located, quiet, and clean at a reasonable rate. Hotel Boccaccio does all that.

The location is great. It's just a 5 minute walk from the train station, and within easy walking distance to Florence's attractions.

This room was the largest we had on our Italian Adventure. The bathroom was enormous when compared to the places we stayed in Rome and Venice. I'm 6'2" and I could actually turn around in the shower without bashing my head or elbows! The bed was pretty firm, perhaps bordering on -too- firm, and the pillows were kind of flat, but it wasn't terrible. I just think we've been spoiled by the hotel standards here in the states. The big plus is that the room was spotless.

The breakfast buffet was pretty standard for Europe.

Overall, it's not a bad choice.
