Breakfast decent, wifi worked well, ac worked well, staff helpful, comfortable rooms, good shower... Not luxury, but anything important was got right. Even kept two demanding teenage girls happy. Unbelievably clean.

We had planned to stay 3 nights in Florence but after seeing our room we decided to stay one night only. Although we found the staff pleasant our room was very ordinary and over priced. I asked for a tea bag at breakfast and the waiter told me they had run out!

Here's what you get for an overpriced hotel room for 2 parents and 2 20 year old girls... 1.Dismissive & slow service. 2. No shampoo/lotion and only two towels for 4 people. 3.The shower is in the middle of the room, so be prepared and hopefully comfortable being naked with all the people you travel with. 4. The trains come... More

Very nice hotel, room was spacious. Was very quite considering our room was facing the street. Nice updates on the bathroom. Air conditioner worked, the first one in 3 hotels we had been to in Italy during this trip. Breakfast was abundant, rolls, cookies, croissant, jams, cheese, various meets, yogurt, coffee machine so you can make your own, juice, cereals.... More

This hotel isn't as bad as some may lead to to believe but it isn't that good. The location is helpful as it is near the train station but then there is nothing much to do in the area..except eat? This is acceptable when the price is cheap but it really wasn't that cheap. However this is not the main... More

--2**READ THIS REVIEW AND RUN! It was loud and a sewage drain! right by tram, no air, no screens on windows and we got attacked by mosquitoes. This was one of the absolute worst hotels I have EVER stayed in! Years ago I had paid $20 for a hotel room that was a 5***** compared to this! It was filthy,... More

We chose this hotel for the location, being close to the S.M.N train station was our main priority. The hop on hop off bus takes you to all the popular Florence destinations, has informative commentary and is a fair price for the amount you can use it (20euro or so) and the start is directly down the road at the...

This place was an anachronism that looked and smelled like it just came out of mothballs. The rooms were barren and had no art or carpets. The wifi was on and off and very weak when working. The tv programming was all in Italian and had very little choice at that. The breakfast buffet was decent, but other than that... More

The reasons I am not recommending this hotel to other people are: 1) The noise in the rooms is the worst I have ever experienced. Not only you can hear noise from the room above and the rooms next to you but also the trains passing by all the time. It feels like they are in your room. 2) You... More

This was a substitute hotel arranged by the tour group. Although relatively clean and comfortable, it was austere and lacking any real amenities It was not within walking distance to the center of activity in Florence although cabs were available. You could, however, walk to a few shops and restaurants. The train was very nearby and you could hear it... 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.
