“Highly recommend”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013

I am highly recommending this place. It is not fancy, but it is quite nice. Having paid for some very nice rooms that I barely spent time in during my early travel days, I opt for less fancy places.

Our room was very clean and adequately sized. The bathroom was a little tight, but manageable. The A/C worked fine, you have to call the front desk to get them to turn it on. My wife loved the various art pieces scattered around the hotel.

The staff was friendly and helpful. The husband and night clerk were especially so. The night clerk gave us a very good restaurant recommendation just outside the hotel door. We might not have tried it otherwise. The Trattoria Antichi Cancelli was the best meal we had while in Florence. It was by far the most reasonably priced. She also always remembered our room number in our comings and goings.

They provide a very nice breakfast. If you walk away hungry it is your own fault. They sit you at tables and bring coffee/espresso to you. Various pastries, breads, jellies, fruits and cereals are provided along with milk and juices. It was a very pleasant experience to start your day.

The hotel is very centrally located. It is just a few blocks from the train station. All the major tourist attractions are in very easy walking distance as are restaurants, cafes and shopping. The big outdoor market is just a couple blocks away.

It is in a busy area and can get a little noisy, but I did not find this an issue except the one afternoon when I tried to catch a short nap. In the evening, many of the vendors from the outdoor market roll their goods to storage areas close to the hotel. Just remember you are in a large city. It was still much quieter than New York.

Do yourself and your budget a favor and stay here.

My husband and I recently stayed at Nuova Italia on our honeymoon and couldn't have been more pleased. We had a very early train coming into Florence (7 a.m.) and they let us check in that early! The hotel was a quick walk from everything: SMN train station, Duomo, Ponte Vecchio, Uffizi, Accademia, Arno River, and so many amazing restaurants and gelaterias. The staff at the hotel was very kind and we especially appreciated the free breakfast of crossiants, fruit, yogurt, coffee, and orange juice every morning. They were also eager to give us a map and a bit of guidance about Florence. Room itself and clean and the bathroom was a good size. Overall, a fantastic place to stay in Florence!

We had a very nice stay at your hotel. The location was great and the breakfast in the morning was very nice.

The staff set us up with the museum reservations at the Galleria dell'Accademia and the Uffizi Galleria. Both museums were fantastic and she was very helpful.

The service was great and Firenze is a truly beautiful and charming city.

We are very grateful that we were able to spend 5 great days at the Nuova Italia. The pluses include its location, the wonderful and helpful staff, and relaxing stay in a clean hotel at a fair price. If we do ever return to Florence we will undoubtedly try to book here first.

This is a nice little hotel. The room was an ok size with high ceiling. The bathroom was a decent size too. The room a clean so we were happy.

The location is great, just a short work from the train station and close to all the attractions and place to eat.

The staff were helpful! The breakfast was nice especially the bread!!

We would stay here again for sure!

The rooms are spotless and comfortable. And the location is perfect for seeing Florence and for catching the train .

My stay was for one night only and the hotel honored my request for a quiet room in the backon the second floor.
I did not account for the stairs to climb with luggage. The room was clean but had not been updated recently.

The location could not have been better and the breakfast room/staff excellent.
Noise from others coming in, banging doors was a bit much.

Room Tip: It's quieter in the back even though there are no cars on the street but lots of pedestrian traf...
