I stayed at the Hotel Nuova Italia for 2 nights in July 2017.
My Sister-in-Law and I came to Florence for a girls weekend without kids and we chose this hotel because of it's proximity to the train station (Santa Maria Novella - 5 minute walk) and the Duomo.
The room was and bathroom were both very clean and a decent size. Their air conditioning was nice and strong (this is important for me - I need cold to sleep well). Our room was on the first floor close to reception and it was not noisy at all. There was also no street noise which was nice. Our room did not have a view and we could not open the blinds but we were rarely there during daylight so it was not an issue for us.
Breakfast was nice - your typical continental breakfast with croissants, cappuccino, fresh fruit and juice etc. The breakfast room was nice and colorful and clean.
The staff at the hotel was very friendly and everyone spoke English. We were able to safely leave our bags when we checked out as our train was not until 4pm that afternoon. The bathroom in the lobby also has a shower if you need it before your departure.
The best part of the hotel was the location. We were right around the corner from the large leather market and a 5 minute walk to San Lorenzo. The Duomo was 8 minutes away. Via Faenza where the hotel is located is super cute as well with lots of stores and restaurants with outdoor seating. We were able to quickly walk everywhere we needed to in central Florence. It was great.
I know that there are lots of choices when you stay in Florence but if I ever return I would definitely stay here again. The location and price could not be beat.
