We had a small but quiet room (211) with a good bathroom. We heard nothing of the neighbours, just the odd earth shattering rattle from above (some sort of luggage or laundry trolley we guessed).
The breakfast was varied and fine for me, but we ate elsewhere other times. If you want an English or American breakfast, remember you are in ITALY and so you will not get one!
Ditto to those who say the rooms are dated, this is an ancient Italian palazzo, and just what I would expect. (Even better, as we had a frescoe on our wall!)
The rooftop terrace was incredible - take your camera!
Good overall, but not wonderful.
- 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
