I stayed here for $51 on Friday. I did not meet any other guests, and the neighborhood was also quiet. After 9:30 p.m., nobody works in the front desk, although one can call them at night. The staff was professional. It is near the St. Maria Piazza, one of the four corners in the old city. But since the city... More

Very friendly staff and great service. The rooms were clean and location was in a great position! I would definitely come back for their service! I needed to buy a new phone and the staff went out of his way to tell me how to get around to buying a new phone! He was very helpful!

Nice comfortable clean hotel. Compared to other hotels in Italy where we have stayed this has been great. Great location with most sights in easy walking distance. Air con could be a little better but it has been extremely hot. Good size room and bathroom. The only suggestion would be to have a small fridge in the room?

I liked the location of Hotel Sole as it is close to all the major landmarks of Florence. There is no free breakfast served but there are some places to grab a bite to eat within close proximity. One nice thing that I didn't know is that there is a place to wash and dry your clothes right in front... More

Air conditioning didn't work and when we inquired about it twice it still never got fixed . Found it quite hard to sleep in the room at night as the room temperature was too high . If you want to sleep in a sauna stay here.

The one star rating belies the quality of this hotel. Very nice little hotel situated in central Florence. Staff is friendly and helpful. Rooms are not big, but cosy and with a nice bathroom. Highly recommended.

I stayed for a night in this hotel in a triple room. Location is perfect, very close to the city center and also to central station (santa maria novella). The room is very clean and the bathroom too. The receptionist staff is very helpful and nice. He helped us a lot during our stay. The only minus point is the... More

A value for money small hotel very close to the train station and all attractions. Located on the third floor. Lift is available. Family friendly. Reception time only till 9.30pm but they have electronic pass access around the clock. Friendly staff.

The hotel was situated well. Clean and with all the basics. Still within walking distance of the train station. Good if you want a clean place to sleep for a couple of days, on a budget and in the city center. Couple of good bakeries close by for breakfast. Wifi is available in the rooms, although it can be a... 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.
