We just stayed here for 4 nights on the final leg of our journey, and I am so glad we did. This hotel has high standards and expectations of their staff to take care of their guests, and they truly meet their goals. The next visit we hope to stay longer and enjoy more of what this hotel has to... More

This hotel was beautiful and the staff was so helpful and friendly. They recommended great restaurants and treated us like royalty. Breakfast was included and was delicious. There was tremendous variety and everything was fresh. There is a complimentary shuttle service and our driver went out of his way to get us to the Ufizzi on time in bad traffic.... More

The hotel was great, service was awesome. They gave us a late check-out as we were only there one night so that definitely made us smile. The pool was out of service and that was the reason we booked the hotel since we had been staying at an apartment for two weeks so that was the only down-side. Also the... More

Our second stop on our Italian vacation was at the Villa Medici in florence. The lobby area / bar are beautiful, the staff is very friendly and helpful. Off the bar is the outdoor restaurant. We booked our trip with Amex platinum and received some great perks. We had complimentary breakfast, one free dinner for our whole family, and complimentary... More

The Gran Hotel Villa Medici in Florence is a beautiful old-world, first class hotel with excellent customer service. This small luxury hotel is in a great location in Florence. The food is outstanding, and the entire staff could not be more friendly and professional. Special thanks to one of the staff, the concierge, Matino.

The pool was just fabulous. It was a great temperature, the seating options were a wonderful variety and the food served outside was amazing. The whole hotel was classy but at the same time modern and comfortable. Our location was a little away from the center of town, but the pool was worth it. The rooms were very nice and... More

We have stayed here three times and each time had a wonderful experience. The rooms are great -- we were upgraded this time to an incredible suite but even the standard rooms which we've stayed in before are very nice. The concierge was incredibly helpful getting us Ufizzi tickets and restaurant reservations. This hotel is a little apart from the... More

Definitely not 5 star in all areas. The first room, although a superior room, was dark and had a view of a tree and a dirty window. I should've known there was a problem when the curtains were closed in the middle of the day. They accommodated a room change the next day but some things are showing signs of... More

Very close to all the places we wanted to see. Good hotel with classic spacious rooms. It has a garden that guests can use during the day, but it is taken by the restaurant which is a pity, it would have been really nice to sit there when the sun is down.

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.
