We stayed two nights in this hotel and didn't regret it. The location of the hotel is perfect: nearby the main station. The service in the hotel was also great: the women at the reception took the time to explain a lot about Florence. She was a great help to us: for example, she booked tickets for the Uffizi. It's...

Me and my sister have just got back from a tour of Italy! Starting in Venice on the 30th June, we ended up in Florence on the 6th July (after a stay in Rome). The hotel is a short walk from the train station and is very close to the city centre, which was really helpful! From the outside the... More

Many old buildings around central Firenze have some floors converted to hotel accommodations. Hotel Elite worked out great for us. It's close enough to SMN station to walk with luggage. It's close enough to car rental agencies to walk with luggage. And it's close enough to walk to the major sights in central Firenze! The facilities are good. Our bathroom... More

We had a wonderful stay at Hotel Elite. The location is great and it is very quiet. It is a short walk away from the Firenze train station; you really do not need a cab to get to the hotel. Also, as other people have said, the front desk to this hotel is only open from 8am-4pm. Their sister hotel,... More

Hotel Elite is conveniently a located, clean and friendly hotel. Nadia, the hotel receptionist was extremely helpful and sweet! We really appreciated her advice and felt we got the most out of our trip to Florence because of her kindness. The bedroom was functional comfortable, and very clean! The only thing you need to be aware of is that the... More

The Hotel is only 10 minutes walk from the railway terminal, in a neighborhood both safe and convenient, and relatively quiet. The building is very old, but the hotel is reasonably renovated. The rooms are all varied in size and the condition. The one we had was located on the main floor, which was clean and generally ok, It had... More

Great stay. I booked a single room here end of August. Good size for one person. Great block out windows, very dark. Perfect location, only a 5 minute walk to the Santa Maria Novella Train station and about a 10 minute walk to domo. Safe feeling area and very friendly staff. Only thing I would say is there is a...

The hotel is located really close to the train station (Santa Maria Novella), and is approximately a five minute walk. Nadia at the front desk was absolutely delightful, sharing information on places to check out, information about the market, and suggestions for restaurants. She also gave us a number of historical insights into Florence - you can tell she really... More

This hotel is in a really great location, literally around the corner from the train station and convenient to everywhere you'd want to go in the city. The real perk to staying here was Maria, who helps work the front desk and is one of the most outgoing, hilarious, and most helpful people you could meet. She immediately whipped out... 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.
