The room was extremely clean, the staff were friendly. Close to the train station. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. The breakfast host was a sweetheart. Very nice gentleman. My only negative was the beds were hard but that seemed to be the case in all the hotels we stayed at in Italy.

We arrived at the Hotel Embassy in the morning and our room was ready. There were 3 of us traveling together and the room was adequate. The front desk was helpful with tours and directions. The location is around the corner from the train station, but that was not a problem, we just shut the windows at night. The morning...

We were supposed to be staying in the MH Florence Hotel and Spa but on arrival we were told they had problems with their water supply and were to be moved to their sister hotel the Embassy. As compensation for our inconvenience we would be offered an upgraded room. Well the room we received was very poor, in need of...

The room was modern and very clean. Breakfast was good with very friendly staff. This hotel is near the train station and there are a lot of restaurants within walking distance. There is a little courtyard where you can sit outside and enjoy a bottle of wine in the evening. The front desk was happy to open wine and provide...

I was fortunate to stay at the Embassy in 2016 (April). The location is just a 3 min. walk from the train station along a quiet street. The hotel had large (for Italian standards) rooms done in marble. The breakfast was excellent (again for Italy) and the staff were wonderful. I will return.

Very disappointed for a 4 star hotel. If this is the standard 4 star in Florence, look for a 6 star if possible. Rooms could use painting and thorough cleaning. We had problems with the first room, a Junior Suite, with noise as it was right above the streetcar line which was active until midnight and then early in the...

This hotel is a 4 star and is very convenient to the train station. It is very clean and was very quiet. The breakfast was standard but nice. The best hotel cappuccino I had. Negatives.. Beds were hard as a board. They did find 3 twin foam things to try and help. Room 407 toilet goes underneath the vanity. You...

Everything; from location near the train station, to rooms+ fresh breakfast, through customer service - was delightful! The rooms were modern and clean, the breakfast was fresh and was served in a nice setting, the customer service attendees were very helpful. I would go there again!

The place certainly has a spirit and is situated only 300 meters from the Train station . It's also 10 minutes walk away from the duomo , lorenzo market And 20 minutes walking distance from the uffizi and accademia . The place is very clean . A bit outdated tho but certainly a great choice .

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.
