A Romantic Renaissance Stay at Boscolo Hotel Astoria

What Do the Rooms Include?

Full of old-world charm, the Boscolo Hotel Astoria is situated inside two Baroque palazzo buildings, which formerly belonged to the nobility of Florence. All 98 rooms make you feel like you stepped into an Italian renaissance painting — frescoes on the walls, classic wooden and upholstered period furniture, wall sconces, chandeliers overhead, and marble bathrooms. Each spacious room has air conditioning, a phone, hair dryer, minibar, a safe, and a television. Most rates include a breakfast buffet downstairs. A few special rooms have views of the city from private terraces.

What Amenities Does the Boscolo Hotel Astoria Offer?

This "grande dame" of a hotel has a posh, marble lobby with vaulted ceilings and terracotta floors to connect with your inner Catherine de Medici and then connect to the free Wi-Fi. There are a few dining options worth checking out. The Palazzo Gaddi Restaurant serves up regional specialties in a majestic room with high ceilings. In the summer, enjoy candlelit dining in the outdoor courtyard. For a real treat, head up to the Roof Terrace Bar for mesmerizing, 360-degree views of the Il Duomo and the historic city.

What are the Rates Like?

Classic rooms start at $186 and include breakfast. The larger, Superior Double goes for about $215 or a Deluxe Double costs about $262. Because of its location, this Florence hotel books up far in advance. 

How's the Boscolo Hotel Astoria’s Location?

The hotel is perfectly situated in the heart of historic Florence. Within just a short walk are heaps of museums, galleries, and shopping. It is just mere steps from the Santa Maria Novella church and a 5-minute walk from the train station or the Il Duomo Cathedral. Within 10 minutes, reach the Ponte Vecchio, the famous medieval, arched bridge over the Arno River, the Uffizi Museum, and Piazza della Signoria.

What’s the Bottom Line?

Get immersed in the feel of Florence, the center of Tuscany and the Italian Renaissance, by staying in your own centuries-old Italian palazzo at the Boscolo Hotel Astoria with its old-world feel, posh style, and excellent service.
