We chose this hotel for its location and were not disappointed. We needed to be close to Santa Maria Novella train station because we arrived by train from Venice, and were visiting both Pisa and Rome by train too. The train station is so close to this hotel. Santa Maria Novella Basilica is a few steps in front of it. The Duomo is a short walk away, and so are many other tourist attractions, restaurants, shops, transportation, etc. We were upgraded to a much bigger room for three though we were two; with a view of the Piazza San Maria Novella and the courtyard. This room was not too colorful or dark at all, and I liked waking up with the views of the church and it’s Piazza. I also liked watching the activities around the church from my windows. It was always busy and interesting in the Piazza, even at night. The room was very clean and comfortable. The service was very good and we got all the assistance we needed from the staff in every way. The elevator is very small but our luggage was always carried for us so that did not matter. I did not spend much time in the common areas except the breakfast room. Breakfast had enough variety for me to choose from. All in all, we had a good stay at this hotel.
