My husband and I are not very picky when it comes to hotels and we really liked this one. Our room was clean and the location is great! Located close to the train station and can easily be reached by foot and approx 15 min walk to the main city square. Good coffee place 2 min walk and a great...

Average hotel, with a lot of things that have to be improved. 4 stars rank, probably had bern achieved some years ago, in the mean time the poor maintenance of the place had left marks in property. Ground floor interior rooms have no privacy and are very noisy. Quite expensive for the quality of services that you get.

Breakfast was buffet style help yourself, lovely and fresh and the staff were friendly and welcoming. There was little traffic noise but we were woken early due to other guests coming and going and cleaners. I would still stay here...

Firstly the positives. This is a nice hotel, nice breakfast, a grand staircase, clean bed linen and towels every day, very close to railway station and city attractions. But. No air conditioning therefore need to have windows open and this lets insects ( mosquitos ) in. My wife and I had over 50 bites to hands, arms, shoulders and face...

Mum and I stayed here recently on a Jet2 City Break. It was a very comfortable hotel in a central location in Florence. The breakfast contained fresh fruit, selection of cereal, yogurts, boiled and scrambled eggs, juices, bacon and sausages, cold meats and a range of breads. The staff in the restaurant were attentive. The staff in reception were very...

My an na my boyfriend visited Florence for the Easter and stayed there for 3 nights. It was clean, with good breakfast and good proximity from Santa Maria Novella church. Though, the area is not great around the hotel.. in addition, there were road works just outside of our window, waking us up at 7am almost every day!..

This hotel is great for those wishing to examine Florence on foot. Everything is so close, 400 m from Santa Maria Novella. Great beds. A prosciutto at the breakfast (if you quick enough and get up early). Great coffee. We'll stay here again next time. The only thing: they did not give us wine glasses. I think it is unfair...

Very basic hotel. Room too hot with air con blowing out hot air even when switched off. Opening window let in a swarm of mosquitoes - I received 8 bites in one night. Shower grout mouldy. Breakfast staff friendly, food choices limited. Location good for train station. I have stayed in nicer hotels in Florence for similar cost.

Loved our four person room. Very clean bedroom and bathroom and great service. The location was amazing because it was right next to the train station and close to tourist attractions. The breakfast is amazing!

The best things that can be said about this hotel: proximity to the train station (which is also nearby where most of the tour buses depart/return), very good breakfast and the staff in the restaurant is very thoughtful. The rooms were quite stark...no rugs, nothing on the walls, only one small shelf to put your clothes. The front room staff...

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.
