I booked this hotel because of two things, good reviews and being so close to train station. We were disappointed once we checked in as our room looked old and had an unpleasant smell. We couldn't work out what the smell was. Also the TV was so small, there was no way we could watch anything unless we were sitting...

Marco at Aurora went above and beyond to make our stay welcome. He is genuinely concerned with all the running of the hotel and the comfort and happiness of his customers. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The location is ideal being literally right across the road from the train station. Our room had lovely views of the Duomo...

Upon arriving at the hotel, we were asked if we minded receiving a free upgrade. We were assigned Room 103 on the ground floor. It was along a quiet little bright, airy corridor just opposite the reception area. Rooms were accessed via a very modern key card system, which the hotel would keep hold of so that you didn't have...

I stayed here years ago when visiting a friend of mine. I chose this hotel due to it's proximity to Stazione Santa Maria Novella. I paid extra to stay in the main building since I was traveling solo. The bathroom was clean and the staff was friendly. I also appreciated that the hotel didn't have a curfew. The breakfast they...

Staying in Santa Maria Novella

Neighbourhood 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.
