    The hotel was in a good location. There are several restaurants in the area. It is within walking distance to many of the tourist attractions. The hotel is quiet and peaceful. Our room was clean and the bed was comfortable.

    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
