Great Family Vacation

Would recommend Mon, May 28, 2012
This was both the lowest rate that we paid during our Italian vacation as well as the highest quality hotel. Located just down the street from the Medici Chapel, it was easy to get to from the SMN train station. We had easy access to the Duomo and all the main sites in Florence. The rooms were quite spacious and quite clean. If you stay on floor 4 or above you will have a very nice view of the city from your window. Make sure and get up to the 6th floor balcony for excellent views. The staff was excellent and dealt with our minimal Italian skills.

Dining

The restaurant in the hotel was quite good. The Ravioli with Butter and Sage sauce was really tasty. Try the chocolate cake for desert and you will not be disappointed.

Wish we had more time

Would recommend Sun, May 6, 2012
The hotel was hard to find (as is common in this area), but the location was great. It is in the heart of the city. Everything is in short walking distance of the hotel. It's a bit dated, but the view from the roof top restauant is spectacular and almost worth the stay by itself. The rooms are small in comparison to American Hotels, but it was adequate. We were lucky to have suites at all of our other hotels in Italy, so this one did seem small, but by european standards it is normal in size.

Quality and Class. Perfect Location

Would recommend Sat, Dec 31, 2011
Just an overnight stay but enough time to experience the quality & magical ambiance that this majestic hotel exudes. The service and help from the front desk was equally impressive. From its historical aspect this hotel was what you imagined the great hotels in history would be like. From it's solid feel, ornate ceilings & walls and great noise suppression in the rooms, to it's perfect location within the old part of Florence and quite good value, this hotel was a total joy to stay in. The only disappointing note is learning that the hotel is due for a major modernisation/refurbishment which might mean the loss of its wonderful historic feel.

Would recommend Tue, Nov 9, 2010
Great hotel, excellent staff, great breakfast served in an amazing room. Rooms were a bit small but very comfortable.

Dining

La Spada restaurant was possibly the best meal i've had in a very long time. From top to bottom they serve excellent food.

Good location, fair room.

Would recommend Tue, Apr 20, 2010
The Astoria is in the Santa Maria Novella neighborhood, so the location is good. Nice lobby, average room. Problem: a bathtub that was so narrow I could not have my feet flat! The shower water pressure was poor, although the water ran well for a bath. We had not included the breakfast in our booking, and were told we could add it for an additional 15 Euro each. Yikes! We went elsewhere. A very nice touch was a personal knock on the door as our 4:00 AM wake up to catch a flight. Friendly staff.

Dining

a few nice trattorias down the street.
