Excellent Location, Walking distance from the Santa Maria Novella Train Station and all the important sites in Florence, very clean, helpful and friendly staff, has a very nice and colourful small terrace, but I am sorry to say the breakfast was very poor!

The hotel and location were both good. The room was small but not out of the expectation for the price but it was clean.

dear guest, good morning, i want to tell you that the city tax it's never included in the booking that you made on-line, the city tax wherever you are in italy, you have to pay it by cash at the departure. best regards cristiana

Great location, clean and new furnished room. Helpful staff. Walking distance to main station. Has a nice garden. Breakfast was a little bit weak. The elevator is a little bit old. Be careful for the elevator.

Hotel Boston was handy to all necessary features in Florence especially train station but also all tourist locations. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Price was low and the value you got for that I thought was good.

The room was huge and the entire hotel was clean. We liked how modern the rooms were but that the hotel still had traditionally Italian characteristics. There was an outside sitting area and a communal seating area on our floor. The breakfast was good. We had cappuccinos each morning! The staff was so nice. We would definitely stay here again.

The hotel is very well located and the people who work in the hotel are very kind. The bathroom was very small and the shower barely fit one person. The breakfast was very good but the time to serve only began at 7:30 am.

hotel staff is helpful and polite.Room decor is stylish.Wifi is stable.However, do not expect too much from hotel's comlimentary breakfast.The choices are limited. Hotel location is good for sightseeing at city town. It is just 5 mins walk to Mercato Centrale which you can buy fruit, grocery stuff and enjoy your lunch over there.
