We arrived here as a late, late arrival, our previously booked hotel being unsuitable (AC not working). Our host allowed us to view the room before we booked as I really wanted to check the AC was working. It was a fantastic stay. The room was the large one with the striped furnishings you can see in some of the... More

LOCATION: Extremely easy to find, signage / buzzer clearly displayed at public street level, 8 minute walk from the Train Station (Firenze SMN), all the attractions within close walking distance. Very safe area with upscale/ high end store fronts along the street. FACILITIES: booking showed "shared bathroom" and was pleasantly surprised to find a shower and sink in the room.... More

Good location though it took me an hour to find the place (I didn't have a map or gps :) ) I stayed just for one night and in a single room with its own bathroom. The room is small (I guessed this is just like that in Florence) but clean and comfortable. Bathroom is clean and good too. The... More

I and my husband recently stayed in this hotel for two nights (13th & 14th of June 2016). Though these are old buildings without elevators, I will never recommend this hotel to elderly people (specifically with luggage). We had to climb up 74 steps every time we went out. However we were well informed about this. We checked in at... More

Hotel location easy to find and the room is clean. However, if you are travel with big luggage, you must be move the luggage to 4th floor to reach the hotel as there is no elevator provided. The staff is friendly and she give me a local map when we check in.

Best choice for a budget trip. Excelent location Friendly host. Small clean room with tv wifi and air conditioned. Lots of info materials at the info desk. Only downside is the lack of private toilet. Beside that you will feel like home in the middle of beautiful Firenze.

In an overpriced Florence, this is a good option if you're searching for something a bit cheaper with a good location in the centre, only a few minutes walking to the Duomo. The hotel is on the third floor of a building without an elevator so it's quite the climb, especially if it's very hot outside and you have heavy... More

Although up a long flight of stairs with no elevator, the climb is worth it. This charming hotel has clean, comfortable rooms, an extremely helpful owner and staff, and it is warm and welcoming. Some rooms have their own facilities, some share a shower or WC. There is rarely a wait for a shared one, and they are always clean.... More

The location is ideal. Right in the middle of the main train station and Santa Maria dei Fiore. Everything is walking distance. The place is quiet, nice and clean. Only thing I'd suggest is that they answer emails, since I sent emails before arriving and they were never anwered.

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.
