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.

The room was very homey and a 10 minute walk from the Santa Maria Novella station. I arrived around 7:30 am and simply left my luggage in the luggage hold at the train station for 6 euros until I could check in after 13h. Due to construction on the street, the street looked

Reason I liked this place is it has a strategic location and a homely feeling to it. It is a mere 15 minute walk to Santa Maria Novella station, and to town. The bed and breakfast is actually on a second floor in a building, so you will have to ring a bell to be admitted up.

"Better not to book this hotel, if you are not 100% you can check in between 1-5pm, due to traffic, flight delay"
"Rooms on the first floor"
"All three rooms were great. One has its private bathroom and the other two share a bathroom. Do not hesitate to take the shared bathroom ones as the bathroom is really spacious and clean and free most of the time."
