Beautiful room, overlooking the Basillica. Large bathroom. Excellent and friendly service - reception, bar staff, etc. nice breakfast - fruits, breads, cold meats, cereals. A decent basic gym. Enjoyed use of the lounge to watch rugby. Highly recommended

Having just returned from 4 nights at the hotel, I have to say this was a great choice. From check-in to check-out, the staff were an absolute delight and couldn't do enough to help us throughout our stay. Our room was on level 5, overlooking the Piazza which was surprisingly quiet (albeit it in February). The room itself (521) was... More

This is a fine hotel, very artistically decorated. Very close to the train station. If you can read maps easily, it is a close walk to the central shopping streets near the Duomo. Room attendants refresh your room at different times of the day. One quirk is that there is only a small brass plaque by the door...not a large... More

I had a very nice time in Florence for Valentine's weekend. I booked a junior suite at Santa Maria Hotel and I was not disappointed. The hotel has that charming old-school vibe, great location (walking distance to the major attractions). Free wifi in our room. Perfectly clean, the staff was very nice. Would definitely stay there again next time I... More

I stayed for 2 nights before going to Rome. Firenze is not big city, but Unesco heritage. We need much time to visit the historical buildings and museums and enjoy the good restaurant. The hotel is in front of Santa Maria Novella and just 3 minutes walking from SMN railway station. Location is good and safety and quiet.

Hotel Hermitage provides a memorable get away. The rooms are about what you expect from the photos, nothing elaborate, but comfortable and good climate control with AC/Heat. The location is fantastic its right on the Ponte Vecchio and the staff made it very lovely and were very helpful.

Stayed for 2 nights in room 601, which is at the top of the building. Spacious double room with large ornate bathroom. Two features made it special. Firstly the large porthole like window looking onto the Duomo; secondly, the large wraparound balcony provibding views over the square below, Duomo and beyond. The hotel is in the old city, in easy... More

Great location, near the railway station and well placed just outside the pedestrian area. Practically all the places in Florence you would wish to see are within walking distance. Hotel is very comfortable, good sized rooms (I had a double for single use to be fair) well and attractively furnished with plenty of space for two. Bed was comfortable and... More

Hotel Santa Maria Novella is a lovely hotel just a short walk from the Florence Rail Station and next to the Piazza Santa Maria. Our room overlooked the Piazza which provided both daily and nightly activities for both of us to see and enjoy. The hotel staff was very nice and knowledgeable of the area….and spoke English, which helped us.... More

I selected this hotel from Trip Advisor. I was looking for something with a good location in the city for my daughter and I. We had never been to Florence and the only guidelines we had were from the study abroad group that my daughter was with. This hotel is charming with a wonderful location on the Piazza Santa Maria...
