We stayed here 6 days and would recommend this hotel--except for the spotty wifi. If you care about staying connected with your devices, the hotel wifi will throw you off in the middle of doing work or checking emails. You have to constantly log on again, an annoyance I have never encountered as severely as this in a modern hotel....

Stayed in this lovely hotel which has a "clock/timepiece" theme. Convenient walk to the train station and yet not so close that you have to deal with the train station traffic/noise, etc. Good location to all the "must see sights". Their room was decent-sized with clean, comfortable bedding, with a large bathroom. Their breakfast on the top floor had a...

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Hotel L'Orologio for our anniversary. It was also our first time in Florence, Italy. The staff at L'Orologio were all very accommodating and easy to communicate with. The hotel is beautiful, comfortable and centrally located in the Piazza di Santa Maria Novella where everything is walking distance. I would highly recommend this hotel...

Firstly the hotel is of a high standard and the central location is perfect for sightseeing. This would have been a 4 star review had it not been for ironically a stolen watch. We are in no doubt whatsoever that the watch was in a small jewellery box in my partner’s handbag next to the bed. Nothing else was stolen...

Really great hotel and even better value. Location is perfect in a nice plaza that is not nearly as crowded as the Duomo plaza but still very close. Very close to train station. The staff is even better. We rarely use hotel staff to book things because it's usually overpriced and extremely touristy, but after getting a great restaurant rec...

Absolutely loved the hotel. It's very small but uniquely designed on different varieties of clocks. The door knobs, the room setup, ambience is all very nicely done up keeping in mind the unique concept and design. One of the best design hotels that I have ever stayed in. Don't expect large spacious rooms. Space in this hotel takes on a...

Location, location, location. This hotel is close to the train station and we walked everywhere we wanted easily from it. The rooms are unique and beautiful. The staff was very helpful. It had everything we wanted and a great room rate. When ever I come back to Florence it will be the first place I check.

I found this hotel to be very quaint and located in a great part of town. The hotel staff was nice and helpful. Florence is a small town so from this hotel you can reach all the main monuments by a short walk. Our room was nicely appointed and large, for an Italian hotel room. The only disappointment is I...

Staying in Santa Maria Novella

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the majority of the people arriving in Florence, which might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists come across the constant hustle and bustle of the station before exiting, taking a few steps and stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It is impossible not to admire the the square, housing one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The area has plenty of local spots to taste Tuscan specialties, but don’t stop in the main streets alone; the narrower side streets always ensure satisfaction. The huge Parco Delle Cascine provides a solution to the need for a green area as well as a historic welcome in the form of a bronze statue of King Vittorio Emanuele II riding a horse.
