Hotel Delle Nazioni was my recent abode for one week, during a first-time visit to Florence. Unsure of what to expect for the relatively low price in a central area, I have to say I was positively surprised in every regard.
The hotel is very well located right next to the Santa Maria Novella train station, which is convenient not just for getting in, but also as a platform for going on a one-day outing to a nearby city. There is a lot of local commerce nearby, including a generally bleak-looking but practical mall under the station, and good restaurants (checking-in should entitle you to a 10% discount at a traditional restaurant next door to the hotel).
Despite staying in a room on the fourth floor, I wasn’t lucky enough to get one with a particularly appealing view – but that didn’t seem important since there was so much to see outside. The Basilica of Santa Maria Novella is right around the corner, with the Old Perfumery and Ognissanti in the back street, and the historical centre less than a ten-minute walk away. Other than that, the room was neat, spacious, warm, well-lit, and perfectly equipped with all the necessities a tourist needs – plus the minor perk of Sky News and CNN reception.
Sporting modern decoration and comfortable facilities, the hotel was very good as a base to kick off the day with a solid breakfast (usual continental treats, including pain au chocolat and delicious scrambled eggs), and welcoming to return to later in the day, exhausted from all the walking and sightseeing. The staff were helpful, very nice to talk to, and professional, making the overall service extremely satisfactory.
(Very) recommendable for the walking tourist looking for easy access, comfort, and practicality.
