Novella House
Ranked #140 of 656 Florence B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 August 2013

The Novella House is a fantastic place to stay in Florence. The rooms are HUGE, clean, and nicely decorated. The staff are very friendly and helpful as well. What sets the Novella House apart is definitely its charm. Our room had a fresco on the ceiling, beautiful chandeliers, and large windows. The hotel is located less than a 10 minute walk from the train station and a 15 minute walk to all the major sights in Florence. Considering the price point of the hotel, you cannot ask for more.

The included breakfast is quite basic (coupon to local cafe for coffee and pastry), but it is sufficient.

Room Tip: Pick the apartment style room with a kitchen and large living area.

Huge, comfortable rooms, great location and kind service. Have been travelling through Europe for over a month and haven't had such spacious accommodation. No complaints at all, would definitely come back!
