This hotel was in a great location. It was about a 5 minute walk to the duomo so not super crowded. It was in a beautiful square close to the train station. We had a great view of Santa Maria novella church. The room was very big and clean. It even included complementary water. The breakfast was great too! The... More

If you are looking for a beautifully decorated, perfectly located period hotel in central Florence look no further. In the heart of Piazza Santa Novella - a five minute walk from the Railway Station and a similar distance from the Duomo. Rooms are good size (large by Italian standards) with good quality period furniture and decoration. Bathroom is sans bath... More

We decided to stay a night in Florence on our way to southern Tuscany so we chose Santa Maria Novella. We stayed with our two girls 7 and 2yr old and it was great! Very family friendly, beautiful spacious room-we had the junior suite. Excellent complementary breakfast and a short walk to all of Florence has to offer. I would... More

We chose this hotel because it is close to the Florence SMN railway station - an easy walk with suitcases. The reception area was modest but check in was seamless and it was easy to converse in English. The porter was very friendly and obliging and also spoke good English. The rooms are very comfortable, clean and quite spacious compared... More

Our genuinely friendly welcome set the standard for a wonderful three night stay in Florence. It was our third visit so we knew what a great location we'd selected. We were not expecting an upgrade to a suite with fantastic views of the piazza and church, complementary prosecco, fresh fruit basket or parting gift for my wife on our last... More

We stayed in a junior suite for 4 nights in July and had a truly memorable trip. The hotel is perfectly located a couple of minutes walk from the main Firenze centrale train station, situated in the square overlooking one of Florence's most stunning churches, Santa Maria Novella (definitely worth looking round). Our room had a direct view of the... More

Santa Maria Novella was the perfect spot for us. Large room beautifully decorated (we had a room with views of the Santa Maria church). Service was impeccable. The breakfast buffet is top, and included. Amazing in every way. Every ingredient was fresh and there is such a large choice of things on offer. All in all, top spot, particularly if... 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.
