We were happy with our stay at the Uni Corno. We read the reviews about a bad smell and did notice that in the lobby, but not our room. The room was average by European standards, a bit small. The bed was relatively firm, but fine all the same. The breakfast in the morning was nothing to write home about.... More

Friends and I were advised to book this hotel by a UK local tourist agent. It has three stars in the Crest brochure 2009. I have been very fortunate to have traveled to many countries but never have I been in such a dirty, smelly one as the Unicorno in Florence. As soon as one enters, the very unpleasant smell... More

The location is great really. very central and very easy to find! The staff is nice and friendly. However the rooms smell really bad and you have to leave the windows open but again it can be quite noisy if you have the windows open. Room 205 smells OK but it is a bit dark. Room 305 smells very bad.... More

Bargian! Right amongst the action - this place was hard to find.... but SO central... And SO cheap! We paid $90 Euro per night for 2 ppl inc breakfast! Clean room, good breakfast.... Internet available downstairs (a bit slow). No bar or restaurant - but if you need somewhere affordable and clean to sleep this is PERFECT!

This is a great tourist hotel, great rates (100 euro in Sept), large rooms with mini fridge, helpful friendly staff, great breakfast (eggs, ham, sausage, cereal, fruit, yogurt). The only downside is that the Elevator does not go down to the ground floor, so you must climb 1 flight of stairs to get to it. The Location is perfect less... More

Staff was friendly and helpful. The entire city of Florence has sewage problems. Our rooms had the smell in them. The showers were terrible because the water did not drain. After taking one shower the water remained in the bathroom. Sorry I had to spend 3 nights there.

The Hotel Unicorno was a great base for a long weekend in Florence. It is close to all major tourist attractions. Staff were very friendly and helpful, the location is fantastic, the rooms were lovely and food was good too. Before going I read that some guests had experienced problems with sewer smells but we did not have any problems... More

The Unicorno hotel in Florence is very close to the train station and very close to the center of Florence. The smell of sewer in the hotel never went away. The location was great and very convenient but only if you can handle the stench.

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.
