Stayed here for four nights. Location is ideal, close to the train station and central bus station and within walking distance to most of the main sights. The room is ok but looks like it needs some work. The configuration is a bit odd even if the building is old. The breakfast room is nice and the breakfast is decent... More

The hotel is very well located in the Santa Maria Novella Piazza, in the centre of Florence, near the station and buss terminal, and within walking distance of just about everything. The room we had was supposed to be a luxury room, but it had a view of the drains of the next building. It was nice and clean with... More

We recently spent three nights at the Santa Maria Novella Hotel, there were three of us so we had two rooms. The rooms and the hotel were very clean and comfortable. Our room looked out on the town square which was a very nice view. Especially liked the location...good restaurants on the piazza, excellent gelato shop, 5 minute walk to... More

As well as having a terrific location, just a stroll from the railway station, Santa Maria Novella, the duomo and other major attractions, this hotel is welcoming and comfortable. Our room was at the back so the view wasn't as good as forward facing rooms, but it was quieter and we slept very well. The public rooms are small but... More

Fabulous location! We looked out of our window onto viewing the Santa Maria Novelia Piazza and Church. So beautiful. The room was nice enough. Comfortable bed. Small bathroom but fine. The staf was so helpful and patient for directions. We would indeed stay here again!

From the train station, turn right into the piazza, sidewalk cafes to the left and hotel is straight ahead. I always travel Italy via trains, so this was very convenient and the piazza is charming. Front staff were very friendly. If I go back to Florence, this is where I will stay. Easy stroll to anything you'd want to see... More

I stayed here three nights. I enjoyed its location as Firenze is not too big and it was minutes from the train station. The staff was very informative and delightfully friendly. I did have one staff member follow me to the elevator asking who I was ... No one had let me know you have to leave your key at... More

This hotel really is quite beautiful and by far the best of the 3/4 star hotels that we have stayed at in Italy recently. It is an older style hotel but very tastefully furnished and decorated. Our room was quite large and had a great view of Santa Maria Novella Piazza. They really didn't have to provide the complementary Proseco... More

It is lovely. Fabulous location. Magical to have a window open up into the piazza and look over such a beautiful church. Great sun set from window. Even the street sounds into the night were so amazing as a way to keep in touch with Florence engaging enlivening night life. The hotel puts care into the decor. And such a... More

This hotel is by far the most pompous extravagant finely decorated little golden gem on the entire piazza de Santa Maria novella. Inside the decoration is beautiful, especially in the breakfast room with huge paintings hanging all over the walls. The concierge and staff are all very helpful and friendly. The rooms are beautiful👌🏻 not only are the beds comfortable... 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.
