Even though the proximity to the train station was great, it is also close to key tourism activities. Everything is very walkable from here. The room was quiet at night. Breakfast was nothing special -- I really wish they could figure out milk and yogurt are supposed to be kept cold, not tepid, but that appears to be consistent with... More

Did not enjoy this hotel. Overpriced. Only advantage is the location. Very close to the train station and dome. However the hotel is really really dated. Air conditioning was bad. Carpets stink. Try to avoid if possible. Breakfast is not good.

The Hotel Bonciani Palazzo Pitti Broccardi is in the heart of the city of Florence. It is just a few blocks from the major train terminal Santa Maria Novella and a few blocks from the imposing and large duomo Cathedral di Di Santa Maria del Fiore. The Hotel is comfortable, very convenient and staff very helpful. Many attractions are clsoe... More

This is the worst case of representation I have seen! On the Travel Republic website it shows photo of a 'bright, airy but quaint hotel, which looked quite grand at the entrance door and in some of the bedroom shots. The truth is far from that! The scalloped curtains shown in the front window were filthy and had fallen off... More

The hotel is really dirty. The room smells really bad like old and that it has not been cleaned in years. The toilet paper was yellow, like it has been there for years. When I reserved they told me that i would have free wifi but there was no signal in my room. The recepcionist told me that the signal... More

This may just be the worst hotel in Western Europe. The staff were rude and we had safety issues such as loose live wiring in the room and nails pointing upwards out of the floor which punctioned my wife's feet. We also overheard reception refuse to call a taxi for a guest and sent her to the railway station on... More

We arrived via the terravision bus to the train station in Florence and the hotel was a two minute walk from there. On arrival we were pleasantly surprised with the hotel, considering the price we had paid for it. The staff on the desk were friendly and happy to help with day trip bookings and questions etc... Our room was... More

I was checking in and it looked sketch and smelled terrible, so we asked to see room first. He gave us key and the room was dreadful looking and not clean. We got on wi-fi and were checking the reviews on the hotel then decided not to stay. He then asked what the problem was when we were hesitant to... More

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.
