      Historical Traveler Reviews Botticelli Hotel Florence

      Perfect Location

      from

      My wife and I stayed here for the Florence leg of our Honeymoon trip, and it really was perfect for us. We were not looking for a super luxurious hotel and thanks to these reviews we knew what to expect. The hotel is average size with small rooms and not much of a view. However, that said, everything else was great. The staff was wonderful, I emailed ahead and they made reservations for us at the Uffizi and Accademia. The air conditioning in the room was wonderful considering it was in the high 80s all week. The location simply can not be beat, just steps from the Mercato Centrale, the San Lorenzo street market, tons of restaurants, it's wonderful. Everything was very clean but again on the small side compared to anything here in America. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and will definitly stay here if I get a chance to return. Though the view from our window was less than perfect, the closeness of the sights themselves more than made up for it.

      Well Situated

      from

      My husband and I spent 7 nights at Hotel Botticelli. The hotel is 5 minutes from Santa Maria Novella train station, which made it an excellent base for our 3 separate day trips (Siena, Rome, Cinque Terre). The Central Market is 2 minutes away with friendly vendors who love to bargain with you. Almost outside hotel are two excellent restaurants: Hotel Za Za - indoor and outdoor seating - fun; Hotel Pepo - delcious food, friendly staff. Botticelli is about a 5-10 minute walk to Duomo - another 5 minutes to Ponte Vecchio and Uffizi Museum and just 5 minutes to the Academia Gallery. Very friendly and accommdating staff and lovely breakfast staff - always smiling. Front desk staff even lent me an electrical adapter to charge my cell phone. Very comfortable lounge area on lobby level with TV, which is nice to relax in, since actual room was small - but the bathroom was perfect - nice towels and soft TP and great shower. Breakfast same every day - so for 7 days was a bit tiresome... but Huge food market less than 5 minutes away to pick up beautiful, fresh fruits, breads, cheese.

      Lovely terrace in the sun for an afternoon break between sightseeing and a late dinner. For those with cars - there is an indoor parking garage (you really don't want or need to drive within the old city) but it fills up fast I'm told. I would stay at this hotel next time we visit Florence.

      Pleased I chose this

      from

      I was really pleased I had chosen this hotel - after my usual research on this web site. the location is great, it's very central and took about 20 minutes to walk to Ponte Vecchio. In fact we walked all round Florence very easily.The room was fine - if a bit small for two of us, the shower worked very well andthe reception staff were very helpful.

      There are some good places to eat very near. We ate in the small square and in an excellent osteria called Pepo just across the street.

      We took a coach tour to Sienna and the Tuscany countryside one day, and the reception staff organised that for us. I would recommend the Botticelli to anyone wanting a comfortable central hotel. Breakfast was a bit basic though!

      Loved it also!

      from

      We loved it also! Great location, sparkling clean, very helpful staff, free internet access.

      Excellent hotel & staff

      from

      I absolutely LOVED the Hotel Botticelli in Florence. In addition to the rooms being very clean (albeit small, which is typical for Europe), the staff was so helpful and friendly to me. I was traveling alone and spoke almost no Italian, and they went out of their way to make sure I had good directions on how to get places. And the location of the hotel couldn't have been better. It was right within walking distance of all the major museums and churches, and close to good restaurants and shopping markets. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again if I ever get another chance to go to Florence.

      Very nice hotel

      from

      Very nice room and excellent location in Florence. Rooms on the street side are pretty noisy, so ask for something away from the street. Staff was very helpful and was able to get advance reservations at the Uffizi--a must, don't expect to walk up and get in there.

      Wonderful!

      from

      I've stayed here 2 out of the 3 times I've been to Florence. The hotel is beautiful, location is perfect, staff is very helpful and breakfast has a good variety (even for someone like me who doesn't like coffee and pane). Mostly everything is in walking distance from this hotel. The second floor terrace is a great place to have a glass of vino at the end of a long day taking in the sights.

      Fantastic!!!!! April , 2004

      from

      The Hotel Botticelli was a great hotel in a great location. Right near the central market. The hotel was very clean and the rooms very very clean and nicely decorated. The price was also reasonably and the room was fairly spacious given european standards. We stayed in a room with twin beds. If you opt for breakfast its great with cereal, coffee, juice, fruit, assortments of breads and rolls, ham, cheese and prosuitto. We would definetly recommend this hotel and would stay their again on our return to florence. Walking distance to just about all attractions and plenty of good restaurants near by.

      A Dissappointment

      from

      I had reservations at the Hotel Orto de Medici instead of Hotel Botticelli. Upon arriving at the hotel that I had reservations at, they sent me to this (sister) hotel because they said that the room had airconditioning problems. However, we were in Florence in March when they don't even use air conditioning. I think they overbooked and sent the flow over to this sister hotel that is of less quality. I was not happy and it really ruined part of my trip. If I wanted to stay at Hotel Bottticelli I would have made reservations at this hotel. They said they gave me a suite--one of their best rooms. I found the room to be very undecorated and of poor quality. The hotel is in need of renovations to update the decor. We left earlier than staying our two nights and left for our next stop of our trip. I am giving this hotel two circles only because it was in a good location and the staff at this hotel was pleasant. However, I would never again stay at one of the Ni Hotels.

      Wonder hotel in a perfect location

      from

      The Hotel Botticelli was a pleasant surprise. We had a room on the third flood with a King Bed and a pull-out sofa for out college age daughter. The room was roomy and clean. On the second floor was a terrace overlooking the narrow street with small tables where we had drinks at the end of the day. It is located in the center of the city close to all the sights and within walking distance to the train station. We drove to the hotel and I have no idea how with all the narrow one way streets. Even the hotel staff was amazed we made it. Do not drive in Florence. Drop the car at the airport and train in. I would highly recommend this hotel

      ... your own lane, whether to walk on the sidewalk or down the middle of the street, jay walking, or just standing in the middle of the street shooting the bull with someone. If we make it out of here alive Saturday morning, we'll be very lucky! In Florence, the sidewalks are very narrow - maybe just a couple of feet wide. Fold away mirrors in the USA are handy for tight garages and car washes. Here, they help soften the blow from ...

      ... at the cable car. Down the hill & back on the bus. Some travellers complain they could be in Florence already without the break while others enjoyed it. So when we get to Florence it's about a 8 minute walk to our hotel. We get a map from the hostel & start walking but end up using the google map screen shot saved on our iPad. The hotel is not sign posted. Just a buzzer at a big wooden door in an old building under number of the street. ...

      We got to Le Terme our hotel for the first two nights, where our bags had been delivered to our room. The property is in a small village known for their mineral baths and spa. So, once Ken arrived we relaxed in the mineral pools to revive our sore bodies.

      ... We decided that there was so much to see so Kerrie, Robert and I bought a roll and ate it while we walked around. We wandered back over the bridge and along the river and then went to the Galileo museum. It was wonderful in there. I am always amazed at the discoveries that were made so long ago with only very simple equipment- no computers, no electron scanning microscopes, no x-rays etc. The discoveries and inventions these scientists made ...
