“Loved our stay!”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

The host is very accommodating, which we needed since we were travelling with a toddler. We were given the room number 2 right next to the reception desk. Had its own private door entrance which you could close for more privacy. There are stairs leading up to the hotel with no elevator but few stairs. Absolutely amazing location. You are close to the train station, Medici Museum, the amazing Food Market and the street Market. Not to mention the amazing Gelato (MUST HAVE) shop right in front of the hotel. Got a bit noisy (our room only review) one night because of the some boys and girls hollering and shouting coming from a drinking session. Someone quickly took care of that (Thankyou) without having to be told. I loved Florence mainly because of the ease of this hotel honestly. Thank you for an amazing stay staff.

Room Tip: If you can avoid getting the rooms facing the street.

We stayed at the Hotel Accademia as part of a Rick Steves group tour. The rooms are located on multiple floors with no elevator service. We had a small room on the 3rd floor. The room was simple, but clean with two twin beds and two nightstands with a small amount of floor space for bags. The bathroom had a small separate shower approximately 3 X 3 feet. Our window appeared to face a small outdoor courtyard, so the room was very quiet and dark, which made for great sleeping conditions. The hotel has fast, free wi-fi throughout the hotel. The breakfast buffet was good and the staff was helpful and friendly. There is also a small bar area on the first floor where people can socialize. The best part about this hotel is the location, which is short walking distance to all of the major sites in Florence.

Great location in Florence, walking distance from the train station and all attractions. The rooms were clean and big enough. The breakfast provided quite a decent spread. The service was excellent. I arrived at 11pm and immediately, the reception knew who I was...apparently he was expecting me as my family had told him I was arriving. The staff are friendly and flexible. We tend to go for breakfast a little late and they kept the buffet open for us an extra half hour without us asking (please try not to do that though...haha!)

The con is that you have to lug your bags up a flight of stairs to get to the hotel. One other thing, the wifi doesn't work in a few rooms. Overall, great value and highly recommended.

The Accademia was a 'port in a storm' for us, as we had to find accommodation in Florence in a hurry. (We were escaping a national rail strike.) It worked out well: reasonable price, brilliant location, comfortable room. The location is minutes away from most of the big attractions, including the Duomo, the Medici Chapel (less than 100 metres away) and Santa Maria Novella. It is also a short walk from the railway station. Our room was large, comfortable and quiet.The bathroom was also spacious, but we had to be careful high-stepping over the bath to have a shower. Breakfast was nothing special and the coffee was worse. We ate dinner nearby at an excellent restaurant recommended by the reception staff, who were friendly and helpful. Overall, we were pleased with the hotel and would stay there again.

The hotel is practically next door to the Medici Chapel and a very short walk to Santa Maria Novella train station. Almost every sight in Florence is within a 15 minute walk of the hotel. A lot of dining options are very close by as well. The only complaint was that the bed was a little too hard for my tastes. We added a couple of extra blankets and were good to go! The staff was excellent and were very friendly and helpful.

The Hotel Accademia is a perfect location exploring Florence. With the new policies in place that limit motor driven traffic in the city (Bravo Mr. Mayor), walking is the way, and the Hotel Accademia is perfect. It's short walk (< 10 minutes) from the train station. It's 15 minutes from the Duomo, 10 to the Accademia Museum, and 20 minuttes to the Uffizi and Ponte Vecchio. Rooms are comfortable, clean, and quiet. Breakfast was excellent. Front desk staff was excellent, particularly in giving directions, and in restaurant recommendations. An added bonus, the hotel also has access to Paolo, a licensed guide in the City. We took a three hour guided tour of the City that was wonderful. What he couldn't show us in person, he presented on his trusty I Pad. Next time, we're using Paolo for a tour of the Uffizi. He gave us excellent recommendations on a restaurants and shops as well.

The location was good, but there are so many hotels around that I think you can find a better hotel. The bkft wasn't anything special and the morning people weren't that friendly. People at the desk were good.
