My Husband and I stayed here for one night during our travels in Italy. It is a 20 second walk from the train station, and in the middle of where everything is. Friendly guy receptionist. Spacious room with a shared bathroom. The bathroom needs updating but served its purpose. Great value for money. We travelled as a couple. View of... More

Second time in Florence and I chose this location because it's proximity to things to do! Right in front of the Piazza. I love walking so this was a great choice. The owners were lovely and helped they spoke English. Near the Termini, so it was short walk from the station to our hotel. This place does not have an... More

We were only in Florence for one night and this place was perfect for our needs - so close to the train station! We walked everywhere - to the San Lorenzo market for great leather goods, the spectacular Il Duomo and the beautiful river with the bustling Ponte Vecchio. Our room was basic but very clean with a tiny shower... More

As everyone else has said if you hate stairs read on but.... We stayed here for 4 nights. It's been recently painted and the rooms are large. The bed is comfy and the pillows are excellent!

Great location if you are arriving/departing by train. You spend no time or effort in searching for the hotel, or carrying luggage. Carlos is quick and efficient. Electronic door keys are for 24 hr entry/exit. The rooms are basic and quaint. Bathrooms are spotlessly clean. The only problem is, there is no lift and the floors are high. Overall, for... More

The hotel is located near the train station and allows you to visit Florence by foot. You will have to climb stairs and accept below average accommodations if you stay here. Unless booked at a great bargain, it is probably not worth your money. The common areas have a strong smell of, well, pets.

.Not a friendly welcome. Getting to bedrooms keeps you fit - about 70 stairtreads. Shared bathroom can be hazarduous when wet . Lots of street rowdies about till 2/3 am. Bedroom fan also noisey! Owners ignore you; their youngsters use the guest loo. Not value for money.

The location is absolutely perfect. A short and nice walk to the city centre and next to the stations. Staff is nice. No lift, many stairs. Restaurants and shops in the surroundings. At least the room where we stayed was very very hot (even using the fan) and very very noisy. I think that if price is much better than... 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.
