This hotel is very close to the train station and if you are used to walking, you can pretty much walk to the historical places of the city. My friends and I stayed here for 2 nights in July and we had a good time. The staff is really helpful and friendly. There is no lift but they carried our... More

The room was quite and clean! I even had a room with balcony. The service was good and the stuff was friendly and helpfull. The Hotel is located close to the train Station, therefore in walking distance to the historic center of Florence. See you again.

We had to drop our car back in Florence then catch the train to our next destination. Hotel Rayan is in a perfect location for the Station. A modest hotel with friendly helpful staff and it seems that the room has just been renovated. Great Value!

If you don't want to rent a car or take a taxi to your hotel but have a bit of luggage, you can't get any closer to the train station than with this hotel. It is a bit away from the main attractions but Florence is small and compact enough for you to walk. Another bonus is that the C2... More

If you're looking to pay a little less for a hotel (65euros), but with a good location, this is an option. It was referred to us by a friend. Was difficult to find (we drove here). Our room was on the second floor. No elevator so made it a bit more difficult to go up the stairs with big suitcases.... More

Good location, just next to train station, run by a nice family, but the cleanness of room should be improved Recommend for budget traveler, there are good restaurant opposite the hotel, and a supermarket and postal office near by

We booked at this hotel having read the reviews. Hotel staff were not unfriendly but certainly not welcoming either. Room was extremely noisy and very cold. Not enough towels for both occupants. We left after the first night as a result. Yes it's convenient but so are many other hotels!

THe hotel is just a couple of blocks away from NVM train station. so that will save some money instead which might have to spend in and out of florence. in / near to historical centre you can quickly run back whenever needed etc. service is professional and helpfull staff. room clean and basic (funny TV though very small) :-)

This hotel is a very good option for budget travellers. Often offers lowest deals on the internet main gateways. Very close to the Florence main station Santa Maria Novella. Service is simple and professional. You can walk to the city center and main attractions. Nice to walk until the river and make all the riverside.

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Rayan in Sept 2009. The location of the hotel was great. It was a 5 - 10 min walk to the middle of downtown Florence. The main train station was also just across the street. The price of the room was also good. We paid $69 Euro (about $100) per night. However, the... 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.
