I was going to be arriving in Florence by train & liked that this hotel was near the station. I know that areas around train stations are not always the best, but the photos of the hotel looked appealing. Upon arriving, the hotel was easy to find & only a 5 minute walk from the station. I was not disappointed in my choice of hotel, in fact, I felt I had found a gem. Great price & wow, for the view of the Duomo on the rooftop! Really enjoyed going up there at night & having a glass of wine & looking at the Duomo.
The breakfast room was absolutely beautiful & a great selection of breakfast foods ~ meats, cheeses & so much more!
My room was #312 & looked out onto a terrace. I stayed here alone for four nights & slept like a baby every night, the hotel was very quiet. My room was clean & the bathroom spacious.
I cannot say enough for this lovely boutique hotel & the location was perfect. The decor really made you feel you were in Italy with its arched columns, statues & art work. Can't wait to return here with my husband & enjoy a glass of wine with him on the rooftop overlooking the Duomo at night!
- 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
