Very dated , no A/C because it was early OCT. however it was unseasonably warm and we were on the ground floor so we could not open the window. location was not in a very nice part of town , not really close to tourist area , room did not feel clean. dishes need to be washed before use.

We let them know our arrival time and check in was smooth. We weren't expecting much from the room, after viewing the pictures and reading some reviews online, but when he opened our door, we were amazed at how large the space was. It appeared clean and had all the facilities we needed. The location was fantastic, although at night... More

I got a good deal on this apartment and it was quite close to the Florence Railway station which was my key decision criteria. Overall apartment was good with decently comfortable beds, full equipped kitchen, hot water in bathroom, working wi-fi etc. Did not expect this to be a Hotel so was not disappointed by overall experience as others have...

No-one to give us access to apartment when we arrived. Had to call an Italian number, then wait for the concierge to arrive to let us in (despite having provided specific details of expected time of arrival). Apartment and block in general were very old and dreary - old sofas lying around in corridors, grubby looking blankets on beds, outdated... More

Was there last year with my boyfriend, the checkin took a while but the owner even though there were a lot of comment saying he was unfriendly, he was nice to us. It's a studio apartment, ours was on the ground floor, we had a kitchen, bathroom, sitting area and the bed in front of the door, it was very... More

We booked this place through Trip Advisor directly at 7-8am on the day we arrived in Florence from Venice. I gave my CC number & was charged €56. We chose this hotel because it's close to the train station. We arrived at 1pm but we knew from reading the reviews that the office would be open at 3pm. We walked... More

Dear Ella, I believe you start the comment with the wrong status and bad behaviour, therefore on the end of your comment I saw your honesty to write that we never charge your credit card, because we never had your reservation and we did not had your credit card info. You believe to know everything but unfortunately for you there... More

First trip to Italy...a gift from my daughter. Friendly check inn and the gentleman even noticed that it was my birthday after checking drivers license. I would definitely stay again. Close to everything, clean and quiet. The price was well worth the accommodations.

I don't understand other reviews about the place not being clean. If coming from the train exit and go right there should be a news stand, Rx, and supermarket on that side. Go for about 5-10 minutes pass the bus stand and turn left its right there on the right, ring the buzzer. The staff was pleasant and efficient. The... More

It was a little difficult to find these apartments from the train station, and we actually walked past them. Then kicked ourself when we walked around the block again and realised how close it actually was to the main Florence station (about 5 min walk). The location is awesome. The price was great. As mentioned, this is not a hotel...... 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.
