This hotel is an amazing maze of rooms with "old world" charm with elaborate furnishings, art work, and architecture. Pictured is the breakfast area as well as the Duomo nearby. The room was Italian Renaissance style with modern accoutrements. With walking and public transportation, travelers are near the cultural sites. The train station is near and airport just a short...

This hotel is perfectly located blocks from the train station, the duomo and most tourist locations. The rooms are large and the beds comfortable. We stayed here in 2007 as well as Sept. 2015 and the quality is excellent. One great feature is the roof top bar. The view of the duomo and the whole city is excellent. We were...

The B4 Astoria is such a lovely place to stay. The decor is italian renaissance, the room was large, comfortable and we were lucky to have a balcony to sit on and enjoy an evening drink.

This hotel is very impressive when you first enter but it goes downhill a bit after that. The rooms are a good size but need updating. Our bathroom became like a swimming pool when the shower was used (room 401). It must be a nightmare for the cleaning staff. The carpets in the corridor was very dirty and stained. The...

I think my title sums it up really - you are perfectly located for many of the 'must see' items on your list, and also a 2 min walk from a cracking set of restaurants (make sure you eat at Za Za!). Reasonably priced, rooms nice, make sure you have a drink on the roof terrace (opens daily from 6:30pm)...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hotel Boscolo Astoria Firenze is the ideal choice for your stay: you'll be accommodated in the rooms of the Palazzo Gaddi and Palazzo Arrighetti, historic buildings belonging to noble Florentine families, where art recounts the passage of centuries every step of the way. Indeed, it was while living at Palazzo Gaddi that the great English author John Milton found inspiration for his masterpiece, Paradise Lost, and in these very rooms that he wrote it. The noble past of Hotel Boscolo Astoria Firenze is also reflected in its location: the church of Santa Maria Novella, abounding in great art, is right nearby (as is the convenient railway station with the same name), and a short stroll will take you directly to Florence's historic centre. An undeniable advantage that puts the most beautiful areas of the city right at your fingertips. The prestigious salons of the luxury Hotel Boscolo Astoria Firenze, decorated in original Florentine Baroque style, are the perfect backdrop for important events. The restaurant will pamper you with typical Tuscany and Mediterranean dishes. ... more   less
