Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


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 from 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. Deluxe rooms are larger than Classic rooms.

The location of the hotel and the staff

The whole hotel and it's amenities - it was sold as a 4* hotel and it wasn't. It was unsafe with lights hanging off the walls, stains on carpets, we were not given the items which were included in our package and which I had paid for

We are a family of 5 so we booked 2 rooms. They gave us a spacious room and the adjoining room next door. The best part was our rooftop terrace with a view of the Duomo!

It's hard to choose a favorite thing about this hotel! The location is awesome, and the staff is so friendly and accommodating. They were always gracious and helpful. The breakfast is very nice, and the breakfast room was lovely and old school Italian. The rooftop bar view is stunning! We had drinks there every evening and had trouble tearing ourselves away for dinner.
