We had a 3 night stay here in May 2015. Despite the initial hiccups (we had trouble finding the building, and then Agoda screwed up our reservation), I must say we had a pretty good stay. The whole B&B is decked out in a very attractive quirky design which makes you feel glad to return at the end of the... More

Funky little B&B within walking distance to the train station. We arrived late but had emailed the hotel and were given the access code to the building and told where to find the keys. Upon entering our room we were delighted to find that it was exactly like the pictures we had seen online. The bed was super comfortable and... More

The rooms were spacious, by European standards. But finding the place, if you blink you will miss it. The host was fantastic and so very helpful. We walked into the main part of the city everyday and it was close to the train line. Breakfast was good and the host was so attentive in making us coffee every morning. Would... More

The host, Carlos, was really welcoming and helpful even before we got there! All email enquiries were replied promptly. We stayed there for 6 nights, although we had trouble with the shower at the beginning, the problem was fixed on the same day as we notified Carlos. It is within walking distance to santa Maria novella station, so it was... More

Overall a good accomodation experience, specially compared with staying in Florence's overpriced and needing renovation hotels... If you are driving it is really tough to park, but the B&B has a parking agreement with a parking close by. Check in first before parking. What I really enjoyed: - Friendly staff (ask them for recommendations on where to eat, etc.); -... More

Went there for few nights, arrived late, without any problems as they had given me a code to enter the building. Only few minutes from Santa Maria Novella train station and into city centre aswell. Room was bright and the furniture looked like new, lcd tv, aircon, fan and bathroom was spacious. Breakfast is simple, good coffee and some pastry.... 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.
