The father-son duo at Bellevue House is excellent. They provide great direction to food, museums, and places of interest. They have great local connections to several dining establishments. Cozy accommodations. If in Florence again, will return in a heartbeat.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The family went out of their way to make our stay perfect with museum reservations, restaurant recommendations, as well as including a happy birthday surprise. Exellent neighborhood with great restaurants. Acsessable to all the sights but away from the noise of the hustle- bussle. Highly recommend!

The owners made this place special. Both Luciano and Alessandro helped me with me whatever I needed and made sure I was comfortable here. Thanks to them I went to a few establishments for food, wine or coffee, I wouldn't have known about or thought to try. I truly enjoyed getting out of the normal tourist spots. Bellevue House was...

Alex, the young man who manages the hotel together with his parents, is very warm, enthusiastic and helpful. They definitely made efforts to make all guests feel at home. Location of the hotel is 5minutes away from the train station by walking. From here one can walk to visit almost all tourist attractions at Florence within 15 to 20 minutes.... More

I found this place at the last minute and I'm so happy I did! It's very convenient to the Santa Maria Novella train station in Florence but yet when you're inside the property you feel far from the throng of tourists. But what made this place so special were the proprietors in particular the son, Alex...very sweet, pleasant and helpful.... More

Of our 2 weeks in Austria and Italy, this part of our trip in Florence was by far the best - and much of it had to do with selecting Bellevue House. Great location - minutes from the train station and wonderful sights of Florence. Alessandro and his Father were delightful hosts. Alessandro gave us great recommendations of where to... More

I stayed here with my partner for 4 days in August 2016. The hotel is extremely quiet (despite it's convenient location near to SMN train station), clean and comfortable. The real highlight is the quality of the staff and their hospitality, We dealt mostly with Alessandro, who runs the place with his father. Both were full of useful tips and... More

This hotel was an amazing find. I really can't say enough about the Michel family who runs this 6 room hotel at the top of a historic building. They are kind, wonderful people who seem truly dedicated to running a nice little hotel for their guests. As soon as we came in, Luciano helped us with our bags and gave... More

Alex and his family are excellent host, taking the time to go over and show on a map everywhere that you need to know in Florence (attractions, restaurants, etc). Place is 5 min walk from the train station and Duomo, 10min walk to the David. Room was clean and had everything you need...toiletries, towels and minibar, etc. Our room had... 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.
