“Lovely place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

We found the hotel & staff very friendly. Was rapt to find tea & coffee making facilities in our room, first time after 2 weeks of travelling-much appreciated.The lady in the bar asked if we had been to their rooftop area, it's a beautiful view over the piazza, great for a drink with dips & bikkies. Only negative is that the hotel nameplate is very small & is hidden behind a shrub.

Room Tip: We had room 101, easy to walk too rather than using the lift & also had views of the piazza.

One of our favorite hotels during our stay in Italy. The proximity to the train station could not be closer. Our tour company set up a taxi, but we felt a bit silly when they drove us as we most certainly could have walked with our luggage. Our room was spectacular! We had two round balconies that made me feel like a princess! Our bathroom was beautiful and rather large. Our room had a wonderful décor and plenty of room for our luggage. The staff were all incredibly friendly, and the breakfast hit the spot with pastries, cheeses, meats, juice, ect. The hotel is close to everything - shops, many restaurants, and tours. When we come back to Florence we will most definitely be staying here again.

We were very happy with the SMN hotel--it is indeed in a very privileged location, and in Florence, that is a pretty big deal. Our room overlooked the very busy PiazzaSMN, but whennthe windows are closed, is was almost impossible to hear any street noise. Quite amazing. Very large room for Europe. Would return for sure.

The hotel is not far away from the train station. It is about five minute's walk. The location is wonderful. It is on a wonderful piazza, near a church. There is a balcony in room. We could enjoy the good view of the piazza. And it is not quiet until very late at night.

We were there for 3 nights and we would definitely come back if we go back to Florence. The location is wonderful. The staff was awesome... Everyone was very helpful and friendly...always bad a smile on their faces all the time including the staff at the breakfast room. The hotel is cozy and very clean. We traveled with baby and highly recommend this hotel!
