B4 Astoria Firenze is a grand old hotel in the city centre, a 5-minute walk from the banks of the River Arno and the Duomo, Florence's domed cathedral. The hotel occupies two former palaces: the Palazzo Arrighetti and the Palazzo Gaddi, where Milton wrote Paradise Lost.
The hotel is in Florence's Renaissance heart, surrounded by world-class sights -- it is just around the corner from Santa Maria Novella church. The Accademia, where you’ll find Michelangelo's David, is 10 minutes' walk away. It's a 15-minute walk to the Uffizi Galleries and the Ponte Vecchio, the city's oldest bridge. Day trips to surrounding Tuscan villages are also easy -- the bus station and Santa Maria Novella railway station are both five minutes' walk away.
The hotel's restaurant serves Mediterranean cuisine, and has a courtyard garden for al fresco meals. Don't miss the rooftop terrace, which has excellent views over the city.
Rooms have a traditional feel, and are decorated with antiques and frescoes. Superior rooms are larger than Classic rooms, and Superior Family rooms can also accommodate a child aged 12 or under.
