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.



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.

... maybe the Pass would have worked for us after all. Head back to the train station for Juniper, stopping at a market to get her and us some food. We are at station on time, the train arrives, we wait, no Juniper. We go to the Trenitalia Customer Service to see if they can help. They call the train and will make announcement to see if she fell asleep and is still on train. I head back to hotel to see if she left a message, I remember I ...

... We wanted to make sure we made the most out of our last night in Florence..Mission Accomplished! haha
Overall, I loved Florence but I definitely want to go back one day soon and see what the museums have to offer. It is more about the culture in each city than the buildings or attractions that really are important to me so I was not disappointed completely that we weren't able to go inside the famous places. Florence was all about food, friends and fun! ...

... Or tombs carved by Michelangelo or Donatello. And then you walk across the river, and here in the palace there are huge rooms wallpapered with masterpieces.

One Pitti-Pal room contained more Raphael paintings than any other place on earth ... except the Vatican, which exceeds this collection by one canvas.

(And if you needed more proof of Florence's significance, consider that all the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are named ...

The following day, feeling a little rough, we took the coach into Florence for the day. We started with a walking tour of the city. We were taken to a leather demonstration to figure out how ...
