On arrival we were presented with several upgrade options and were shown both our booked room and available rooms under the upgrade options. Staff at check-in were very helpful as was the member of staff who took our bags and showed us the various rooms. Rooms were spacious but it is important to note that a standard room does not include tea and coffee making facilities (this seems to be common in Italy we have discovered so it is not a criticism of the hotel). The hotel is only ten minutes walk from the station and is within walking distance of many of the main tourist attractions. In particular it is a short walk from the Accademia Gallery which houses Michelangelo's David. It is also only a short walk to the bus stop from where you can catch a bus cheaply to the Piazzale Michelangelo.

Wonderful lobby with a homey, welcoming atmosphere. Staff always helpful, smiley, even if rushed, never felt pushed back. I loved the design of the lobby with cosy corners for a read or a drink.
To hide away you can go up to the 4th floor for relax and to enjoy the panorama. Wonderful!
Rooms: we had a lovely room of a decent size, nicely furnished, all comfortable. Lots of towels and cosmetic products. I don't say nothing could be improved, but the overall impression was so positive.
Very decent breakfast with wonderful and always smiling waiting staff. Enjoyed that, too!

Hotel Botticelli is a quaint hotel located about a 7-9 minute walk from the train station. Nice and safe walk. The room and bathroom were small but I figured, I'm in Florence Italy it doesn't matter. The staff was nice and breakfast was on the light side but there were plenty of other places to eat later in the day. Nice walk to the Academia Gallery, the Duomo, and Vecchio Bridge. What better way to explore the city than to walk. We took a wine tour one day and had a great time.

Our first visit to Florence, so we wanted a hotel from which we could walk most places. We arrived at noon by train and ten minutes walking we were at the hotel where we were very warmly greeted. The wonderful people on the desk offered to change our room to the first floor to save these seniors from dragging bags and selves up more stairs than necessary. Wonderful! They then most cheerfully showed us on maps the locales of the best of Florence and made suggestions of things we could do. Our room not being ready, we left luggage and set out to explore. On our return we retrieved luggage and found our room. Other reviewers were unhappy with rooms at the front, but our corner room overlooked two busy streets and we were very happy with that, and when windows were closed little street noise came in. Our room was spotless, very comfortable, and nicely decorated. The included breakfast was continental and quie adequate.

The centerpiece of this Florence neighborhood is the Basilica di San Lorenzo, one of the largest churches in the city. Located near the city's main market, the most celebrated aspect of this structure may be the Cappelle Medicee. Also notable is the Laurentian Library, which was conceived and built by Michelangelo.
