Met our every need, staff were extremely friendly. We basically only slept there but we had no issues. The room was clean and had everything we needed. The front desk staff were fantastic, really helpful, warm and welcoming. Thank-you!

Highly recommend. We stayed one night in Florence and wished we could have stayed more. The room was clean and charming. The location was near the train station and food and attractions. The room was very quiet even through we were in the heart of the city. And most importantly Sylvia was an exceptional host. Can't wait to have the... More

The breakfasts in the room were a nice touch. The air conditioning worked fine. The room was decent. The only hiccup was that there was something wrong with the air conditioning in the first room and we left the windows open and in Italy there are no screens to fit the old large windows. We did not realize that mosquitos... More

We arrived for 1 nights stay before continuing our road trip to Perugia, firstly Silvia was so welcoming and helpful finding us somewhere to park our car.

Sylvia gave me the exact directiona to arrive from the train station, and also waited for me. Staff was really kind and having breakfast in your own room was a nice detail. Location is good, 10-15 minutes (walk) from the duomo. Also a safe area.

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.
