Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Boccaccio Florence
Wonderful experience here!
Our family visited Florence in July of 2003 and had a wonderful stay at the Hotel Boccaccio. We highly recommend this hotel for families. We found the staff extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel was spotlessly clean. Our room was quiet and protected from street noise by combination windows and shutters. The air conditioning kept the room tempertature comfortable despite very hot July weather. The location was so convenient. The furnishings were beautiful. The breakfast was large and delicious. Extra amenities included an internet access point in the lobby, and a reservation service for the major museums. We definitely recommend this hotel and hope to return there ourselves one day!
Very nice place and great breakfast!
I stayed in the Boccaccio hotel for 2 nights in july 2003, the room was clean and nice (including the most important part: the bathroom). The location is really convenient since it's very close to the train station and most of the touristic attraccions , great price (100 Euros) and very nice breakfast, out of the common for the kind of "breakfasts" you get most of the hotels in Europe.
Great hotel for a great price.
I was actually booked in another hotel nearby Boccaccio hotel when I first arrived in Florence. The service offered was very poor especially considering the rate of the room. After asking around in a few hotels in the area, I decided to book at Boccaccio. I have to say I was highly impressed by the quality of service at Boccaccio Hotel. Not only was the staff very helpfull, but the rooms were very well maintained. We had AC (which is very important in the summer in florence), and the washroom was always clean. The hotel is also at a superb location in the heart of florence, and only a 5 minute walk from the train station. If you're looking for a good hotel in the heart of Florence, and don't want to pay a fortune for it, Boccaccio Hotel is the place to be. You will like it GUARANTEED!!
This is a super hotel
This is a super hotel located a few steps away from the train station and the bus station.It is a superb location for travellers using Florence as a base to explore Tuscany (Siena etc) using public transport.The hotel staff could not have been more helpful and we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
Very pleasant hotel
Great hotel. Close to Santa Maria Novella train station, easy to find. Off the main street, so pretty quiet. Beautiful flooring -- marble in the common areas, hardwood in the rooms. Very friendly staff, with good restaurant reccomendations. Room was tastefully decorated, and spacious by European standards (a bit small by American standards.) Good complimentary breakfast -- croissants, rolls, cereal and milk, yogurt, juices, and coffee. Easy walking distance to all the musuems and sites. No problems storing luggage for an afternoon after checkout. A very pleasant stay.
Friendly Helpful staff
We had a great stay here. The staff is the friendliest you will find in Italy. This hotel is very near the train station and it was an easy walk to all of the historic locations. This was a good value. We will stay here again.
GREAT STAY IN FIRENZE
We had a wonderful experience staying here. The reception staff coudn't have been more friendly - or helpful. For the most part everyone spoke better English than we did. Our room was spacious, very clean, and tastefully decorated. We appreciated the woodden floors and georgeous marble floors instead of the usual moquette. It's located near the Santa Maria Novella station and the city centre you can reach the main arts in few minutes walk. We spent a very pleasant stay in Boccaccio Hotel, we would recommend it to everyone.

Today we had classes ew. In between classes we got paninis which were obviously amazing. Then we napped and had pizza making at 5:30 ! It was so fun and so yummy! And the dessert they gave us was amazing too. it was a little cookie cup filled with custard, bananas, and strawberries. Then we came home and did homework and went to sleep early!
Also we're thinking about booking Budapest and Poland tomorrow! 2 places ive never been! I'm so excitedddd
... on opposing walls scenes of heaven and hell. Heaven was bright and interesting with the apostles before it and hell was hard to decipher, had definite sections and rather scary characters before it.
We stopped off at our hotel to have some cold drinks since we have a bar fridge here which has been nice and to drop off our shopping finds, including a new backpack and a cardigan from the markets. We then headed to the bus stop beside the station for a 12 or 13 bus up to ...
Day 16 - Friday 23 November Our train to Florence didn't leave until 9.46 am so we weren't rushing in the morning like we usually do. We enjoyed our final breakfast at Hotel Opera; they have been very good. The train was on time and we were soon on the rails to Firenze - Santa Maria Novella station. The journey was smooth and fast as we arrived into Florence at 11.30am and walked a short 400m to our hotel, Hotel Rosso 23. The room was ready which was a ...
... glass of Prosecco and appetizer plate. We shared a bottle of wine with the pecorini and pear filled homemade pasta. We both agree it was the best pasta in our lives. To top it off, we shared a dessert and were given complimentary digestifs - lemoncello for Karen and grappa for myself. They even left the vessels at our table and stopped by a couple times to top us up. Fortunately, it was my third night in Florence, so I knew the streets fairly well ...
... able to communicate simple phrases. I’ve learned the basics of the Italian language since it is similar to Spanish, but in no way could I carry on a conversation. Many language books are here at our apartment that other people have left behind, so I fully intend to pull a couple out and start studying!! It’s going to be so much fun.
Since I’m on the topic of fun, last night was probably one of the most fun days thus far. After ...
