    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.

    ... over the ocean. Once it got completely dark and we were getting to head back to the hotel, fireworks shot up from the sky right over the ocean! You know how I just said the sky over the ocean was beautiful, this was ten times better. Sadly, we had to leave the next day.

    ... door at all, just a drain on the floor, but that wasn't "normal" from what the guy told us. Virtually every shower has had a hand held shower head. I think it's because of the way they are installed, but who knows! Bathrooms in restaurants and other public places have been interesting. Must have been fairly normal, according to Italian style anyway, but it is clear that the cleanliness of bathrooms is generally not a top ...

    ... to wait about half an hour in a queue to be able to climb to the top of the dome. It was quite a crazy climb up as the beginning of the climb is a winding stairwell and then you come out on the inside of the church around the height of all the satanic depictions that are painted on the base of the dome.. and then you wind your way round before climbing up inside the inner and outer layers of the dome.. Poor Simon was almost bent in half trying to fit ...

    Muggy Day in Florence

    The weather forecast was cloudy with showers today so the air was quite muggy. This morning I went on the free walking tour offered at the hostel. Normally free walking tours work on a tips basis, but this didn't happen to be one - which might have been a good thing. Compared to the other tours, this one seemed to lack energy, and for the first time in my life - I was one of the "ducks" following a bright pink random through the crowds. Perhaps this ...
