        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.

Loved seeing the rest of it also, this was the seat of the Renaissance, Florence had a currency that the rest of the world would use and base theirs on, the home of Michelangelo, Dante, several popes, ...

        I can't believe tomorrow I am leaving.. and won't be walking the streets of Italia next week. I have come to know this city as another home. Friends that have been made here are going to be deeply missed. Over these last 5 and a half months I have had moments of laughing so hard my cheeks hurt; I have shared moments of fear, hurt, frustration as well as peace, love, and joy. ...

        ... to re-visit the gorgeous swimming pool in Cortona perched high on the hill...but alas I get to Cortona and the complex is clearly shut for the season, as the umbrellas are packed away and all the furniture is gone, only 3 days after summer has officially finished, and despite the fact it's 32 degrees! The gate is open and I walk in to have a look round, and if the pool hadn't been the most luminous fluorescent green I've ever seen, I ...

        ... looks quite funny from the tower looking back towards the gates. We then went and looked at the baptistery and the duomo that the tower was built for as a bell tower and we were looking at them thinking there was something wonky when we worked out that both these building had sunk at some stage but not as much. In fact the Baptistery had sunk at one end and it must of been while they were building it as they had corrected it but it had ...
