This hotel is only a couple of minutes walk from the railway station, and 10-15 minutes walk from the things you want to see in Florence. There is a good ambience and friendly staff, and the room was of good size. Very quiet thanks to double double glazing. Good breakfast with a lot of things to choose from. I will...

We thought that the location of this hotel was great, only about a ten-minute walk from the Duomo. Parking was an additional €25 per day, but we were able to load and unload at the hotel and they had a valet-style service to pick up/park/return the car to us when we were ready for it. The variety and quality of...

Small old hotel in the middle of the old city center of Florance. Lovely hotel with friendly and helpful staff. This three star hotel offers good breakfast with variety of choices. There is snacks at the bar for all to enjoy free of charge. It's price is re-enable. Recommended.

Amazing, this hotel has the classic feel and look. Deco is from the good old European days style. Old piano, old type writer, super old camera, etc. Rooms are clean and beautiful. Very spacious. Breakfast spread is good and delicious. Hotel location is good, very near Firenze Santa Maria Novell Station, almost all attractions are within walking distance from hotel....

Booked this hotel for four nights because it was close to the station (300mts) and close to all that you would want to see in Florence,a lot. Receptionists very helpful,room cosy, bed too hard, breakfast O.K if you like cake. Bacon and eggs not the best but tea and coffee good.

Wow, a great find if you are travelling by train with a family. A few minutes walk from the train station and so close to the city centre! Beautiful two-level bedroom with mezzanine and access to a terrace, luxurious bathroom and the breakfast was superb. Excellent value for money, thumbs up for Alba Palace from our family!

Stayed here for three nights for first trip to Florence. Lovely small and friendly hotel full of character. We arrived in Florence at the train station after an hour journey from Pisa where we had a quick look around the Tower and Piazza dei Miracoli area. Only a five minute walk from the station. Friendly reception and very spacious room...

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.
