This was our second trip in 2 years to Florence, and we knew we were coming back to Santa Maria Novella Hotel. When a first stay is so impressive, you hope the the second lives up to your expectations. All we can say is - the magic was still there! For our week-long visit in July, we were thrilled to... More

I'd recommend staying at this hotel when in florence as it's very central, close to the river and close to the train station. You can take the train to Pisa for half a day, take the bus to Siena and also the fun in Tuscany wine tour leaves from just opposite the train station. This tour was fantastic. The room... More

Everything about this hotel was great! The position, the very helpful staff, the service, the rooms and the large comfortable bathroom. Breakfast was delicious. This special hotel really added to our wonderful experience in Florence and is also great value for money - although we were upgraded so perhaps that is a bit exaggerated.

Excellent location; very close to train station. walking distance to everything, but then again everything is within walking distance in Florence. Our stay was great; comfortable beds, marble bathroom. Staff was friendly. Breakfast had cold/hot assortments to choose from. Check out the rooftop terrace; we took a bottle of wine and snacks for a happy hour before our dinner, just... More

This hotel is exactly far away enough from the crowds to feel relaxing while being only a 10 minute walk from main attractions. Also being close to the train station was handy, as we took a train to Rome after our stay. The staff was welcoming, the property in great shape, and the room amazing. In full disclosure, we were...

We stayed here with 2 kids. First, the location is so convenient especially if you're arriving by train. It is < 10 minutes walk from the station. The piazza is fairly quiet even at night but there are people who gather, as there are restaurants around. It is walking distance to the Duomo and we were able to walk to... More

We stayed here for 7 nights and had a great stay. Comfortable beds with a beautiful marble bathroom that were kept scrupulously clean by the housekeeping staff. Very helpful and friendly reception staff and breakfast was more than plentiful with hot and cold food available until 10.30. If we ever came back to Florence we wouldn't hesitate to stay here...

The staff were extremely helpful and friendly , the location was a three minute walk to the duomo or the train station and right next to a tour meeting point , it wasn't noisy at night and the rooms were...

Our room was really comfortable, great pillows, marble bathroom with lonely big shower and tea and coffee making facilities - they provided free... More
