This is a great boutique hotel in Florence. The location makes it easy to get off the train and walk to the hotel. It is also a short walk to all the sights of Florence. The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms were marble and newer. Our room had a/c, a safe and lots of hanging space for clothes. Although...

On our first night in Florence we were moved to this hotel when our booked hotel overbooked. It turned out to be a very nice hotel. The breakfast was very nice in a room with a view. The watch motif was very interesting to see. One word of warning...it seems in Florence they use very small area rugs on very...

My daughter and I stayed for two nights in Florence between the London and Rome legs of our trip. I did tons and tons of research on TripAdvisor and other websites to find the right hotel. The L 'Orologio was wonderful in every way. Highly rated and it lived up to our expectations. It is a short cab ride from...

Great location, very nice staff, nice rooms, very classy hotel, yummi breakfast with a beautiful view over the Basilique. I warmly recommend this hotel!!! The only remark I can make is that my room had a blind view, you better ask for a room with view.

We spent 6 nights at this lovely boutique hotel. Every one was incredibly gracious. Simply an ideal location..the fact the national gelato festival was located steps from the front door was very cool! Walking anywhere was easy....or "Oh, just 5 minutes!" The hotel room was the quietest I have ever had the pleasure of staying. Literally, the doors were like...

Just 5 mins walk from the train station at Santa Maria. As u come out of the train station follow the taxi sign. The hotel is conveniently located near the mall outlet bus station, P.zza Santa Maria Novella shopping & sights. Everything within a short walking distance. A must stay if you are staying in Florence.

My husband and I spent 4 days in Florence at this absolutely fantastic boutique hotel. The staff was so helpful and friendly. It's very well situated, walking distance to all the important places to be seen in Florence. Their breakfast was very good and we really enjoyed their bar area. We will definitely be back soon!

Get off the train in Florence and in 5 minutes you are at the hotel located on the Santa Maria Novella Square. This was a huge plus for us and our overstuffed suitcases. The location was perfect for us - near the Central Market, shopping, museums, etc. We walked everywhere. The room and bathroom were gorgeous and large, especially by...

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.
