Hotel Montebello Splendid is an excellent hotel, definetely a five-star hotel. The location is good, just a few minutes from the railway station, and a 10-minute walk from Ponte Vecchio. The hotel is beautyfully furnished and service and cleanliness was excellent. We did not use the bar though, which was said to be expensive by some reviewers. The breakfast buffet...

Our family of three just returned from a two week trip to Italy during which we stayed at the Montebello Splendid in Florence for 5 nights. The hotel is gorgeous and roomy with a country in the city feel. It is about a mile or 15 minute walk to the Ponte Vecchio. We grew to enjoy the walk and there...

I am a seasoned traveller and difficult to please. The Montebello got a tick from us and will go back again. As with everything the final judgement is a combination of product, service, location and price. Judged on that basis the Montebello is excellent choice. We booked a classic room bu t the staff upgraded us to a superior upon...

I can't say enough about this hotel and the quality of the staff and service. We stayed during the August season and the hotel seemed not very well populated, however the service was impeccable.

The location of the hotel is very quiet and accessible. The hotel itself is more a boutique hotel and far from the impersonal chains (however good) all over Europe. The family room is fairly cramped and with one bathroom (downstairs) for four people, gets a bit claustrophic. But the public rooms are great and the staff appear genuinely concerned in...

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.
