This recently renovated hotel is located directly across from the Santa Maria Novella train station on Via Luigi Alamanni 5, and is convenient to all the points of interest by foot. The staff is very helpful, the rooms comfortable and clean, and the breakfast excellent and ample. Giovanni and Davide both speak excellent English, and know the area well, especially... More

While this hotel is currently undergoing renovations (to be completed shortly), the location, price and overall design make it an amazing value. Room was large with rainfall shower, free wifi, free breakfast in beautiful garden, walkable from the train and bus station in Florence, and incredibly convenient to all the major sites of the city. The staff was very helpful... More

We chose the Hotel Aurora because we were stopping in Florence for only one night (on our way from Venice to Rome) to see an exhibit at the Palazzo Strozzi and didn't want to bother with taxis. The hotel was being renovated on the outside and had been renovated on the inside. We had booked a Deluxe room and it... More

Dear Guest, I thank you for your review and for the time you spend for this. We are just a little bit confused from your description because for instance: our garden is absolutely private, no car or external person can go inside, except passing from the reception and blocking the porter, (the porter if you are not a guest don’t...

Stayed there during April for 4 days. A wonderfully neat and clean hotel with a decent breakfast was a surprise for the price it came for. Also it's proximity to the SMN Station is a huge plus point. It is 10 minutes walk from the city center and the the main market. Also easy for those who want to do... More

We said we would come again and we are so glad we did. Once again we were made most welcome by Giovani, his wife Orietti and his ever so helpful staff.

Great location, excellent services, very clean and comfortable. Close to S.M. Novella and a short walk from most city attractions. Located across the street from the train station, makes it easy for the regional traveler. Elevator to the highest floor makes it easier for kids and luggage.

This hotel is well priced very comfortable and is located very close to the main rail station. It is for that reason we chose it and with suit cases in tow a quick walk gets you there. Difficult to find at the moment because safety fences and scaffolding hide the hotel front from view. Major works in the neighbourhood are... More

The best thing about this hotel is the location. The hotel is right opposite the train station and is walking distance to / from some great restaurants and shops. Although the rooms are comfortable and very spacious our room looked a bit tired and a in need of a coat of paint. The lighting is very low in the rooms... More
