We stayed here for two nights as part of a Rick Steves tour group. I liked everything about this hotel, but especially the rooms, which were unique and beautiful. I believe the building was a converted "palazzo" (clue's in the name, I guess), and that showed in the quality of the rooms.

This hotel was fantastic. Nice big, clean rooms. Bathroom was huge. Breakfast was included and it was really good! They had a nice selection including cold cereal (which I had been missing, most European breakfasts seem to be just croissants and BREAD!) Great location super close to train station. I would definitely stay here again! My only complaint - You... More

Chose this hotel because of its location to the train station but also because of its beautiful design and atmosphere. The hotel decor is very old world and lovely.

We had already pre-paid for an apartment in Florence, but the heat was so unbearable and the mosquitos so awful, that we bit the bullet and booked our last night here and left our apartment early. This was our best night's sleep of our entire trip, as we were bathed in awesome cold air in a lovely hotel. The heatwave... More

We chose this hotel because it was close to the train station, not the best reason but it made sense at the time. It is close to a few of the sites most people want to see in Florence and the staff were ok. There are a few places to eat near by, but most of the best food is... More

This hotel is ten minutes from the main Florence train station, which is ideal for those arriving by train, or who use the Pisa Airport shuttles such as terravision. The hotel is in a quiet area, however it has restaurants, mini markets and bars nearby, not to mention the nearby church of Santa Maria Novella and the square by the... More

Great location most places including Florence station and tour start points are a 5 min walk. Large room. Good convenience stores around for daily needs. Good staff at the reception. Not so good - breakfast spread is average and the service below average. Also room cleaning was poor, one could see layers of dust below the bed and tables.

This hotel is very welcoming and the staff are extremely helpful. Our room was right at the top hidden up a further set of stairs, but very large and comfortable. The staff were great about managing our luggage. It is just around the corner from a very interesting church, the station and the Duomo.

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.
