Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


B4 Astoria Firenze is a grand old hotel in the city center, a five-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 a 10-minute stroll away. It is also a 15-minute walk to the Uffizi Gallery 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 a short walk away.

The hotel's restaurant serves Mediterranean cuisine, and has a courtyard garden for alfresco 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 frescos. Superior rooms are larger than Classic rooms, and Superior Family rooms can also accommodate a child aged 12 or under.
