The first thing that strikes me in this hotel was the old fashion style, with metal key that you need to drop at reception when you go out (reception opens from 6am to 1am), and the all wooden furniture. The room was clean and the bed confortable though it was really 2 mattresses sticked together so you can't sleep in... More

Room are a bit sombre and old fashioned, but clean e spacious. Best thing is the location: next to the railway station, next to S Maria Novella, next to supermarket and bar, you can walk ten minutes and be at the Duomo. Breakfast is nothing special, I expected more. Personnel very kind, they speak good English and German. Mind no... More

Everything was very clean, staff friendly and helpful. Nice breakfast. Fantastic location, we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. They also had nice big umbrellas which we needed. The price was worth it. When I come back, this is where I'll stay!

It's a fairly typical 3 star (ish) hotel in Italy. What sets its apart though is three things. 1. It's location is great just moments from the train and bus stations 2. It's immaculately clean and 3. The staff on the front desk are excellent. Efficient, well-informed and extremely helpful.

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hotel Boccaccio is in the heart of the historic city centre, a stone's throw from the railway station, from Piazza Duomo and from the Church of Santa Maria Novella. The extremely recent and diligent re-structuring, valorized by the original Carrara marble, has made the presence of more modern comforts possible harmoniously combined with the authentic Florentine style.
