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.

... s always a nagging push and pull though, and I don't necessarily handle stress well. I honestly feel like I'm on a bad luck streak right now and that's when all of the little things start to get to me. I had a complete breakdown today because I couldn't find WiFi in my house or in the three different cafes that I went to. Yes...this was a low. To remedy this, I will put my midterms on hold and go to aperitivo and commit to having just one cocktail ...

The story goes that Michelangelo had been punched so many times that his nose was all stowed in and he couldn't breathe out of it. So when he painted the Sistine Chapel he could only breathe through his mouth and became quite sick from the fumes. So, as much as we love to ...

While the art here was interesting, and probably represents among the finest in the world, it felt rushed, crowded and (again not being art knowledgeable) seemed to be just more nice art. After seeing so much great art in the churches for_free, being here seemed to be more of the same. It also seemed rushed, as we hoped from painting to painting, skipping so much due to lack ...
... dark and we didnt know if we had lights in our tent at night!!! O my word, I went into the tent feeling for the light switch and baring in mind, we had seen a few spiders earlier, I was not happy about this! I dug around for my torch, but the batteries were dead!! I dug for my phone, but couldnt find it. Eventually, I went to the neighbours tent to see where it was in their tent and came back for another feel around our tent! 10 minutes later, I located it.. and found my phone ...
... and there were not many people in the streets and all were tourists. There were street markets in most of the squares we passed - Basilica di San Lorenzo, Piazza San Marco, Basilica della Santissima Annunziata until we arrived at the Piazza Del Duomo which was absolutely full of people and had big queues for the all the entrances of the Duomo (cathedral). There are lots of good shopping places and pastries around the square where ...
