We stayed for 3 nights in this Boscolo hotel and were very pleased overall with the hotel. Yes, it could do with some updating but it was clean and rooms were large (compared to european standards). We had a very nice view of the Duomo from our room but had some problems with the window which we tried to tell...

We recently stayed in the Astoria for 3 nights and found it to meet almost all of our needs perfectly. First of all, the hotel is perfectly situated between the train station and Duomo in the center of Florence, so its difficult to find a better location. If you travel to Florence by train you can literally walk to the...

We stayed four nights at the Astoria during a weekend get away.

We stayed two nights at the Astoria at the start and end of a family vacation in Tuscany.

The rooms whilst basic were clean and of a reasonable standard but could be improved. The rooftop terrace bar is a real...

We just returned from a two week trip to Italy. We stayed in Florence at the Astoria for two nights and wished that we could have stayed longer.

My husband and I stayed at Astoria for 3 nights in early July. Wish we could have stayed longer!

My husband and I spent one night at this hotel before flying out early the next morning. For what we needed this hotel served its purpose--it was close to the train station, which we wanted since we were arriving by train, we didn't need breakfast since we were leaving so early, we were able to book one night only (through...

I too was very disappointed with the quality of the hotel. The hotel is dark and needs a major renovation. The room size was ok, but, the bathrooom was certainly not of the what I would expect in a 4-star hotel. The staff was pleasant and helpful, but I would not stay here again. I think you can get better...

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
