This hotel is right next to the train station and thats very convinient because all the city tours/day trips start from the train station. Hotel is a little difficult to find only because the name is not displayed very prominently, so once you are on Via Alamanni keep your eyes open for the sign. We had booked online through Booking.com... More

The hotel is just opposite Train station. The room is clean and comfortable. Breakfast is good but you don't have to worry there us many choices of restaurants out there. Hotel staffs are friendly, helpful. As it's near trains station so it's very convenience to go anywhere you want in Florence.

This hotel is very close to the station and a short stroll to the Duomo. There are many restaurants very close by. The hotel although in the bustle of a busy part of Florence is quiet once inside. There is a most charming and tranquil garden courtyard for breakfast, (which is included in the tariff) and there is free wifi.... More

We missed the last train to Lucca and had to book a hotel last minute in Florence at 11:00 pm. The Wifi in the McDonalds at Santa Maria Novella train station worked very well and we found Aurora Hotel. It is right across the street from the train station, around the corner from the cathedral Santa Maria Novella and five... More

But what I really needed to update was the gluten free breakfast option. My niece is very allergic and the hotel has an arrangement with... More

Dear Guest, We are sorry for the misunderstanding; we want to underline the fact that we are not dishonest. What happened was, we were a bit confused by the many requests you had; we do not have a deluxe room next to a triple room, nor a deluxe room at the third floor. The room we had given you, anyway,...
