My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Aurora for 4 nights in September and got much more than we expected. The room was large, clean, comfortable, and quiet, even though it opened onto the main street. The hotel staff was great and very helpful with directions, and even some discount coupons for local restaurants. All of their recommendations were...

We were happy, staying in this hotel. It is clean with new sanitary engineering, comfy bed, very friendly and helpful staff. Our room was supplied with electrical teapot and free tea bags. Location it close to railway station but modern windows protect from a noise. And what is very important, a price was reasonable.

I loves this hotel. It was a really good experience, the room was big and comfortable. Just a few steps to the train station. That day was my husband's birthday and in the night we received an unexpected but very nice surprise, a person of the staff was knocking at the door with a bottle of champagne and chips, and...

If you are arriving in Florence by train or bus this hotel is perfectly located next to the railway station so you won't have to carry your luggage very far at the beginning and end of your stay, which trust me you really don't want to do in a city with often narrow and crowded pavements. Although by definition the...

This hotel is situated perfectly near the train station. Comfortable accommodations and friendly staff. Breakfast wasn't disappointing and there was a laundry mat around the corner that was a life saver with our European trip :)

We spent 4 nights here and received an upgraded room. It was very modern with an amazing shower and bathroom. Our room also faced the courtyard so it was very quiet. The front street was quite busy. It is walking distance to all of old Florence, no taxis, cars or busses are needed. There are multitudes of restaurants very close....

The hotel is very well located, and check in was quickly & efficiently handled. The rooms are also really nice and the location near the train station couldn't have been better.

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.
