I have been staying in this hotel for a few times since I travel frequently to Florence for work. I really like the location because it is an step away from the town centre. Rooms are big and confortable,also to be right in the city centre, you dont notice the noise from outside! Breakfast included with lots of choices is...

This hotel is at walking distance from the main train station but also 5 minutes from the city center. My room had been recently renovated and from my window I could even take a peek on the Duomo dome. The staff is very friendly and very helpful. I would definitely recommended it for people who are looking for a nice...

I can definitely recommend this hotel. The people were super friendly and helpful booking a wine tour we were interested in. The room was spacious and clean, air conditioner worked, which was great bc it was about 85 when we were there in mid September. Shower was fine, although nothing to write home about, but for the price I think...

This hotel is in a great location within an easy walk of the train station and the leather market. The rooms are decorated in "Florentine" style and have a fridge. Even though our room fronted the street (which buses thunder down) we slept well as the windows are very well glazed. The owners/staff at reception were really wonderful and helpful...

All the staff were very helpful, polite and friendly and are a credit to the hotel. 5*Thanks! The buffet breakfasts although the same every day were good if a little unimaginative 3*. The room we were given was a bit depressing as it had a window that faced a small inner space, was overlooked by other rooms and was also...

Stayed near the top floor in a room with a window opening to the street below. Great room, had a double bed and a single bed, modern and clean bathroom in the room, desk with chair, bedside table, and wardrobe closet. Location was about ten minute walk from train station and in the heart of the city. Only downside was...

We booked this hotel through Octopus travel for three nights in the middle of September.

They advised that they had transfered out booking to another Hotel nearby - La Residenza ( see seperate review) and they...

We booked as part of a package (Cresta, UK). Info was limited, eg we wondered if we'd get a kettle and there was no clue as to breakfast etc. It's easily walkable from the railway station. On arrival we were welcomed warmly by staff well able to deal in English, and their attitude remained very good throughout the stay. They...

The hotel main advantage is the central location. You can easily go everywhere. But.. The street is circulated. If you choose to keep window close it will not disturb an average person. The room was clean, but old styled. The air conditioning was noisy. The staff was pleasant but with an average-poor command of English. The breakfast was plenty!

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.
