    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.

    ... I was planning to try and find a park outside the city and then secure accommodation, but the sheer amount of traffic has me a little rattled and I can't even find a parking garage, and as by now it's 7pm and I'm tired from driving, I decide to just make my way back to the Convent as I know it's cheap and they have free parking....all for 43 euro!!

    So I've literally come in a full circle back to Florence, to where I started ...

    ... a pair of ear rings and a bracelet and that blew just over 1K euro for the day. Had lunch in a lovely restaurant, but they forgot my order and then served it cold! They were real embarrassed and I wasn't! we got a good discount on a long lunch. Helen wanted to go and look for a dress ring and i wanted to climb the Duomo Giotti bell tower stairs to get some photo's. The stair climb wasn't that hard but putting up with all the other people in a tight stairway was, and were ...

    ... Since we had already turned in our rental car (thank God), I was not able to drive into the central city again. So our options included calling a taxi or enjoying another new Florentine experience by using the public transit system of Florence. We opted for the latter after talking to the "very helpful" hotel staff. We learned that the final stop for Bus 22, which travels from the central city out to the airport, was just 100 ...

    ... I was concerned that when the adrenaline wore off a real injury might present itself. So I crossed over, asked about dizziness etc. I think he broke his hand however. They were going to head to the Farmacia to see about getting more help. That'll mess up a holiday.

    And then at the grocery store a young inibriated man barged in, yelling, heading to the beer section. The staff quickly escorted him out. By the time we left (15-20 mins later) ...

    Wednesday: LG and I set off for Art history together and took our seats by the window to catch the breeze (it is far too hot in our school they crack the windows open to make it more comfortable). Elizabeth Oles joined us since she had just transferred into our class. Franco took his spot at the back of the room explaining that there was a mix up with the Santa Maria Novella Baptistry and we would not be visiting there today. We were quite bummed since we had ...
