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

Great hotel situated just far enough from the hubbub of the centre of Florence and just a few metres from the river. We have stayed many times and it is very comfortable with excellent staff who have been there for many years. The rooms are nice but maybe a little small for some people but we stayed in a junior...

The hotel has been beautifully restored to give you a classic Italian experience. The grounds are gorgeous and it was so relaxing just to sit and enjoy the quiet area. there isn't much parking if you have a car. There are different size rooms and layouts. Nice modern bathrooms. No irons. Comfortable beds with good linens. The rooms all have... More

The most important thing in a hotel is its staff. So here 90 percent of the staff was bad-mannered and unpleasant. I had the feeling I am somewhere else, not Italy. It is definitely not a 5 stars hotel.

Charming and very attractive boutique hotel located not too far to walk from the main attractions of Florence. Alternatively a taxi takes only seconds to arrive and the cost is minimal compared with other cities. Nice bar and dining area with a small al fresco area which is charming for a leisurely breakfast. Breakfast is generally good, especially the fresh... More

This hotel has a very modern architecture. It is located in a place known for his handicraft. The strange thing that you notice is that the person who shows you the room has to indicate where you can switch the lights on and off: it is behind the head of the bed. Very discreet but very difficult to find when... More

It is a classy hotel, it raises mostly to the standards of a 5* hotel. If you're looking for a true Italian experience, this isn't the right place, the personnel is too uptight. Also, the room we're we stayed in wasn't soundproofed, the noise from the street could be heard.

My husband and I celebrated our 32nd wedding anniversary in Italy and this was by far our favorite hotel. The room was large, the bed was super comfortable and the staff were very helpful. We would definitely stay here again!

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.
