Terrible. We stayed in one of the double rooms and it was absolutely tiny (10 sq meter total incl. bath'room'). The floor was really filthy (our feet were black after walking barefoot) and the walls were dirty from all the killed musqitos. I didn't see air conditioning. No wifi signal. The shower is right next to the toilet and the...

How is this place still in business? The owner should take note of these reviews and do something about it. It's unfair to charge people to stay in these conditions. It seems as if absolutely no maintenance has been done since this place opened. Here are the only good about this place: A/C worked well (surprisingly) Hot water in shower...

The room was quite hot and the bed really hard. The owner was really nice. The location of the hostel is a bit outside. It takes 30 minutes to walk into the city center. Unfortunatly you could only connect to WLAN in the corrdor of the first floor. And even there the signal was very bad.

We were given an attic room which was best suited for dwarves as persons of average height could only move upright in a narrow corridor by the door. Ask for head protection or a safety helmet. The shower/toilet was something to behold being one cubicle which meant after a shower no one could enter for quite a while, If you...

We stayed there for three nights. The only good thing was the location - it is very close to the city center and a minute walk from the bus stop if you need to get to the station. There is also a supermarket not far from the hostel - mind that there are no breakfasts included. As for the room,...

We stayed with some friends and we got a triple room that was on the attic and it was hard to walked as the ceiling was really down. Our room had a en suite bathroom but it was really small and it was hard to shower without getting all the bathroom wet. In the 3 nights that we stayed they...

We stayed here, and while it's probably not as bad as what the rest of the reviewers are saying, I think my advice would still be to find somewhere else to stay if you can. The owner doesn't seem too interested to have any interaction with her guests, and I didn't see her except at the start. Cons: - No...

Me and my girlfriend were there in May 2013 and we are not too much happy for that. We paid 50 euros total for a double room with bathroom and there isn't nothing nothing of bad but... The price-quality ratio is not good because there is a poor cleaning. The towels and pillow covers was rich of small colorful tick...

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.
