I really have no complaints except perhaps a bigger sign to locate the building from outside and for new comers! 눇True to the word of most reviewers here, the B&B was delightful.

I was looking for an inexpensive place to stay near a conference site i was going to attend. the location of the place was great, the price was a bit high, but there were few alternatives, so i reserved. Apparently, i was expecting a B&B to be a small house with a small number of rooms. However, the place is... More

Nicely situated B&B near the main train station and close to the main attractions in Florence. The manager Matteo was very kind and helpful. Breakfast was fine with a small but varied spread. The elevator is super small but definitely a unique experience.

We stayed there in July 2014 and that was the right place to stay in Florence. Very warm welcome and good advice from the owner, big fan of Fiorentina. Location is close to train station, but a bit tough with big luggage because of road surface. Room is fine, not too fancy, but all thing is available. Breakfast is good.... More

The place is very nice and the service is excellent but this is surely not the place to go while visiting Italy. The food is very modern and over priced, not really what you are aiming for in Italy.. This is equal to any modern place you can find anywhere else in the world

This is a very good little little hotel in an excellent location to wander Florence. Marco could not be nicer or more helpful! The breakfast is great, with coffee, tea, and a selection of pastries, fruit, toast, meats, and yogurts. Overall a very pleasant stay in Florence!

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.
