This hotel has character, its in a great location and the room with the balcony overlooking the Arno river was fantastic. The hotel is minutes walking distance from everything and the host Francesco was brilliant. I would certainly stay in this hotel again if I was to visit Florence and highly recommend this place. I have nothing but good to...

Loved the location of this once family residence. It's a block or so from the US Consulate along the Arnos River. Views of the Pointe Vecchio from the window! The owners are incredibly helpful and generous. Complimentary wine and free water. An incredible espresso machine in the room, too. But what made this room the most favorite of our trip,...

Good location to see Florence. We were a bit disappointed to be moved from one room to another due to some mixup with their booking. The first room was superior to the one we were put in for the last night, so it coloured our stay. Not as good mattress or pillows etc . However it is clean and the...

We loved the Vespucci. The location is terrific -- on the river (our room with balcony fronting it) yet only a stroll from the main shopping streets and most of the historical sites you are likely to visit. Another advantage is that if you walk anywhere west of here you are out of the main tourist areas and can find...

Our family of five decided to go to Florence on short notice and stayed in this beautiful and welcoming place. The owner and his staff are personable and professional; the facilities are spotless with ample space in the rooms and bathrooms. Highly recommend.

This hotel is a lovely little Italian get-away. I see that some people (in the reviews) were not satisfied with their stay. In response to that, I think it is important to remember that this is not America. Expectations about customer service and luxury must be adjusted. But I have been traveling Italy for the past two weeks and this...

Our stay at Residenza Vespucci was, unfortunately challenging. I had booked 3 of the same room and paid in full at time of booking in January. We were booked for 2 nights in May. On arrival we were informed that the hotel had oversubscribed and didn’t have one of my 3 rooms available. The hotel owner/manager Francesco tried to be...

IF - you are looking for a hotel with the normal star standards, don't choose Residenza Vespucci! But - IF you on the other hand are looking for a residence off standard you've made the right choise.

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.
