Shame, this hotel has everything going for it: Great location, great views, garden, free parking, large rooms and all in a beautiful buliding. But it so so badly let down by the tired and shabby interiors in the room. The bathroom was so dated and run down it was like it hadn't been updated since the 1980's! With the St...

Room is very spacious, conveniently located close to the train station (about a 10 min walk, and 5 min driving), and very close to all the car rental places. Hotel comes with free parking, and free breakfast. Staff is friendly, and for breakfast, they will make your eggs to order. We really enjoyed our stay, until the last day, right...

The hotel is old including the furniture but the junior suite we booked was very spacious with a huge bathroom that functioned very well. The room included a tiny balcony with a view of the river. The hotel provides free secure parking on site but inform the stuff once you arrive in order for them to register your car as...

I had a beautiful view of the Arno, room 32, with a great terrace. The hotel let me check in very early, maybe 0930...which was super nice of them. They came in during the day and re-cleaned the room while I was out, which was a nice service, since the room was already clean when I checked in. I have...

What a wonderful gem! We loved staying at Hotel Principe. We learned the history of the establishment (great story) and loved the charm and elegance of the garden. The frescoes in the public rooms were beautiful. Their reception unfortunately had a smell of cigarettes but our room facing the lovely garden was incredible. It generously fit our family of 4...

This is a very good value. The hotel is clean and nicely kept. It's a very old building that has been taken care of. We had a nice room overlooking the river. It was quiet and had a great balcony. The hotel has a great roof terrace that is horribly under utilized. They should add a bar, or serve breakfast...

A previously wonderful hotel, just outdated and in need of an overhaul. A little out of the buzzy center of Florence which we preferred. Breakfast was rather disappointing but nice free selection of wine, prosecco, and canapés in the afternoon in the common area. Nice and posh touch! Noise level rather high within the hotel (doors). Bedrooms are good sized...

We enjoyed excellent service from an attentive, helpful staff. Our room was nicely decorated in Tuscan style and we enjoyed a glimpse into local life from our terrace. Looking forward to another stay here.

Stayed from July 4 to the 6, 2015. Staff was great since we arrived early getting us in our roam on very hot day! Roam over looked the river and was great. Staff was very helpful in giving directions and idea for sites to see in town. Little off from the major attractions in town but well worth the extra...

We were really pleased with our selection of hotel in Florence. The Hotel Principe is in very easy walking distance of the city centre, but without being the the crazy busyness that comes with being in the centre. Although our room didn't overlook the river, we did have a beautiful view just the same. Available secure parking was a terrific...

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.
