Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

Great 4-star hotel that felt like it was refurbished within past month. We had a room overlooking the piazza that was huge. The bed was so comfortable I've contacted them to find out if I can get one here. Staff was terrific and had the most stylish uniforms I've seen. Check out the roof terrace!

My family of 4 (2 teenage children) just stayed at this beautiful hotel last weekend. Everything about this hotel is first class. The rooms are large, clean and beautifully decorated with an Italian flair. The rooms are quiet and over look the Santa Maria Piazza where there can be live music at night. We stayed in 2 connecting rooms and this was perfect and convenient. The breakfast has a wide variety of food - cereals, cheeses, pastries, eggs, bacon, fresh juices etc.. Very large for an Italian breakfast. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The location is perfect. It's a 5 min walk from the train station, 10 min to the Duomo, and is very convenient to delicious restaurants. We never had to take a taxi. The Santa Maria Novella hotel is our favorite and added a special touch to the end of our 10 days in Italy.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the Piazza.

Everything about this hotel was beautiful. The rooms so well furnished, the location just perfect and the staff very helpful and friendly. Would stay again in a heart beat. The square just outside was so lovely and there were enough outdoor restaurants to suit most tastes.

Be sure to find out if a single room is a a twin to double size bed or a French bed more cot/couch. My room was nice enough with an average sized European bathroom. My friend's had a tiny French bed and a huge bathroom. Nice bed linens. Towels? Not really. We paid close to the same price. Otherwise, breakfast was beautiful, service was great. WIFI access was spotty depending on where we were in the hotel. Best place for me, while the least desirable, was in the breakfast room...

Horrible wifi. It's free but every 1200 seconds it kicks you out. Weird. Large rooms excellent location but then anywhere in florence is excellent. It's not that big a city. Free breakfast included. We did not get our boys a view room so their room overlooked the garbage. They could not open the window because of the smell! So make sure you state that in the reservation

We selected this hotel because of the reviews here and because we were able to use AMEX points to pay for it. We spent two nights here. We took a train from Milan to Florence and the proximity of the hotel to the train station is fantastic. A very short walk to the square. The room was very large and we had a king size bed. The decor is antique and beautiful. Lovely fixtures in the bathroom. There's a terrace on the roof with great 360 views. One night we got cheese, bread, wine, etc. and brought it up there to enjoy. If you're going to do that, buy some paper plates and plastic utensils and a wine opener! The bartender opened our wine for us but we were pretty primitive otherwise. We hope to return to Florence someday and we'd absolutely stay here again.

Room Tip: I think our room faced a street but we didn't spend much time in it. We spent our time in the l...
