For convenience this is a great spot to stay in Florence. We were greeted by a very enthusiastic reception staff member who was willing to step us through exactly what we should see during our stay. The wifi was also good and rooms were cleaned each day. However, the walls are quite thin so you could always hear the people... More

The pictures in the website/booking look way better than the actual place. The wifi connection does not work depending on where you're staying. It's close to the station and that's the only positive thing. I'd call it "weak". Not worth a second visit.

In town, museums and a great location with proximity to the station. 3 minutes into the river, 1 minute walk from the station, the price is fine performansiyla place. cleanliness and safety is the pain that you have a doubt. We pass on the outside after the big iron gates, you enter the apartment, then more and indicate a door,... More

I stayed here for 3 night with a friend in October 2014. The good: very conveniently located- we could walk there in 5min from the train station with big suitcases (no need for buses/taxis) and relatively easy to find. The room was a good size, and clean with the room cleaned daily. Wifi worked well. Staff were friendly and helpful.... More

It got off to a bad start when we couldn't find the B&B on the street, we retraced our steps to see to our horror we had booked a B&B run out of an old office block-no wonder we missed it the first time! The entrance is very dated and the rooms were not much better. The rooms were large... More

This is a quaint, old-fashioned hotel that combines the old with the new. The old is comprised by the rooms, which are charming and roomy. We had a balcony which a had a nice view in one direction and a not-so-nice view of the courtyard which could use a good cleaning and some plants. However, it was most amenable to... More

The place is not attractive. From the outside it looks like a car park. From the inside the rooms look cheap. But look closer. The rooms are clean. The beds/mattresses are well made. The heat and AC work great. The plumbing and shower work perfectly. The rooms are near to the SMN train station in the center of the city.... More

Location: This B&B is very close to Florence SM station and can be walked if you have medium sized suitcase. If you want to board a bus to Pisa Airport, you get it from Florence SM station entrance. Most of the day/evening tours starts from Florence SM station (Black Digital Clock near stairs) and is very close to the B&B.... More

Located literally behind the florence train station, which is not a very nice area of florence in my opinion. just like any typical train station neighborhood. Its dirty, the station is filled with many beggars/homeless, and really I just want to get as far away as possible from the station. So its quite disappointing to find your hotel to be... More

We were originally supposed to stay at Tourist House Duomo but as we were arriving past their check in time they transferred our booking here. It was ok but nothing great. It can get noisy being across the road from a club and near the train station and you need to use three keys to get into your bedroom from... 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.
