Botticelli Hotel

Reviewed 25 February 2012

On our recent trip we were lucky to have booked this hotel. We were close to everything, just a short walk from the train station, the market, the Duomo, and the best restaurants in town. The staff was helpful and the wifi was free. Our room was comfortable with all the furnishings we needed. No view..well if you like to view the window across the air shaft. But really...we only spent time in the hotel at night, so we didn't need a view. Would definitely stay here again.

My wife and I stayed here at the beginning of February 2012 during a snow shower/cold front. The hotel is very close SMN (Train Station) and is an easy walk to Medici Chapel/Duomo/Uffizi. The hotel is very close to Galleria Accademia, which is nice.

The rooms are typically European, but have a bathtub which is nice after a long day of walking. The staff is very courteous and helpful- I can't imagine them not trying to help someone with a problem. The housekeeping is very nice and when I dropped a luggage key, the housekeeper chased me down and gave it back.

The staff speaks good English- which is very convenient.

The breakfast was generous. I typically placed ham and cheese in a croissant, which made breakfast delicious. Also, very easy to take the breakfast to go for an afternoon snack.

There are to great restaurants neat the hotel. One is four doors down on the left and recommend by the staff. The food is authentic and delicious. I even ordered a second entree of pasta to the waitress suprise. The second restaurent is a bistro three blocks down on the north side of San't Antonio between Via della Amorino and Via Faenza. Both restaurants are reasonably priced and have great food.

Room Tip: The rooms without a view have windows overlooking the alleyway. If a view is important, book a room...

The Botticelli is a three star hotel, as suggested by its rating.But it's a great little three star, Although on the border of the historic centre it's definitely in the city. Surrounded by great little honest tratorias and snack bars, next to the briliant mercato San Lorenzo food hall, and basillica of the same name, the Academia nearby, its position is perfect. Duomo is barely a 10 minute stroll away, and its surroundings suggest a cool and safe wider ethnicity; Chinese, Turkish and Braziian eateries are nearby.
Staff are approachable and professional -- we felt well looked after. Breakfast is simple and repeats, but adequate and relaxed, and provides a good basic start to the day. The cleanliness rating was 4.2 /4.5 - which atrracted us - and this is about right. Without prompting the hotel provided iced sparkling wine for my wife's birthday; a nice touch which represents the general vibe of the place.
It can be a bit noisy early morning as the street vendors wheel their stalls across the cobbles to set up in the outdoor market. Depending on your viewpoint this could be annoying or acepted as the sound of a real working city and the sound of the Botticelli's centrality.
We'd return, and, for the small differences a 4 star offers, stick with this good value 3 star in the future.

The location beats all. The breakfast gets lame after 15 days. The bathroom is a joke. Staff is kinda ok.

Loved the hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful and its in a good location. Would have got 5 stars but the bathroom was too cramped - opening the door was impeded by the loo and getting in and out of the bath was a real feat.

Our room was clean, reasonably large and as described. Breakfast was good and nicely staffed. Desk staff spoke English well and were helpful. Location is very convenient to train station and market. The room was a little warm for us, but that was the case in all our Italy hotels. We were able to keep the window open which was a plus. We were able to check in before lunch which was a plus. There was a little caffeteria nearby that was suggested by Rick Steves that provided a nice inexpensive dinner.

Room Tip: Our room was next to the stairs and elevator which was slightly noisy. I would ask for a room away...

We had a week at the Botticelli, my husband ran the Florence Marathon, and so did the hotel manager, and they very thoughtfully put on an early breakfast on the day. Also the staff on reception saved my life...I'd left the camera charger at home and they found one for me to use, I was thinking I'd have to buy a new camera! The hotel is ideally situated in walking distance of all the major sites, and lots of reasonably priced restaurants. Also the reception staff were excellent at looking up bus timetables and routes for trips further afield, nothing is too much trouble.
