This is charming little boutique hotel in an amazing location. It is located right in the heart of Florence, extremely close to many beautiful attractions. The lobby is very nice, and the room we stayed in was great as well, with a beautiful terrace. The service however, was very poor, and we thought the staff was quite rude.

Initially we changed to this hotel before our trip to Florence as our initial hotel cancelled our booking claiming it was an error. When we found this hotel, we thought the location was good and on our arrival, it did not disappoint. Hotel was centrally located to everything which was walking distance including the train station.

Staying in Santa Maria Novella

Neighborhood 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.
