Hotel is stunning, as is the room we were in (upgraded to middle tier room). Only negatives was that it was a bit of a trek into town (but I guess good for working off all that Italian cuisine and chianti!) and the restaurant wasn't great. We stayed in for our first night dinner since we were tired from traveling.... More

The hotel is nice, location is about 10-15 min walking distance to the main square of florence, nice walk along the river. So if you don't mind being outside. The rooms were good, clean the bath products were very good! The service level is the hotel is not up standard. They have a unconventional key card and do not disturb... More

I’m very pleased to read your satisfaction about the quality of our rooms and facilities, but I’m at the same time terribly sorry for the lack of service. No excuses, we failed on both the occasions and I apologize on behalf of my colleagues who didn’t provided you prompt and good service. Unfortunately, with “do not disturb sign” whatever you...

We stayed in the Hotel Montebello Splendid Hotel as part of a land tour extension through Uniworld River Cruises. The hotel is located on a side street about a mile from the city center. The hotel is very elegant, the lobby and public areas are very nicely decorated with paintings and mosaics. It appears to be three separate buildings which... More

We stayed at this hotel in July, the hotel is lovely, well within walking distance of all the main attractions. The staff are very helpful, breakfast was great, lovely coffee and freshly squeezed juice. The bedrooms are very traditionally decorated, very clean and comfortable the public areas are beautifully decorated, very well worth the stay.

We stayed in Florence for three nights and used this hotel as a central location to make day trips by train to Venice and Rome as well as viewing the highlights of Florence itself.

Very quiet setting. A nice courtyard at the entrance separates the hotel from the street. The room was very well appointed. Nice light through windows into a light well. Heavy drapes, no hall traffic, and solid walls. Exceptional internet access and plenty of room to unpack. Felt safe walking to the center and in the neighborhood. Breakfast had lots of... More

Could have not been nicer or more accommodating, I made a huge error when booking a hotel that was beautiful but 90 minutes outside of Florence. In a panic we found this beautiful hotel through the American Express Concierge service. They could see that we were frazzled when we arrived and took us in as their family. They put our... More

We stayed for a total of 3 nights but would love to stay longer. The hotel had lovely decor in all areas including outdoor, reception and bar/restaurant and rooms. The room itself was of high quality and loved the fact that you had a separate lounge from the main bedroom area. You get complimentary tea bags (multiple flavours) and kettle... More

Nice clean hotel. I had a small single room but it was really nice and toilet was big with a shower and bath. It's very clean and nice staff. A 5 minute walk to the centre. Ideal so you can discover the better food! Go to Al Tranvai for Italian food and wine like it's meant to be. Centre of... More

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.
