“A wonderful stay”
Reviewed 17 July 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at SMN and would stay here again. Our room was very large with a huge entry/lounge, a walk in wardrobe and beautiful bathroom. The bed was comfortable but our sleep was interrupted by a ticking noise coming from the electrical box ( not sure what it was). Staff were also helpful when we had to print off tickets at the last minute. The location is also great!

We travelled from Venice to Florence, what a great establishment to check into after two and half days hot, frantic, and cramped Venice!! This had been one of the nicest Hotels I have had the privilege to stay in, definitely in top 2. Location is excellent, within walking distance to the main attractions of Venice such as the Duomo & Uffizi (that’s all within the pedestrian centre of Florence) and close to the station for catching the high speed trains (from “S.M.N” station - the main Florence station). Breakfast were great. We had a great room, with views directly over the square in front of to the Santa Maria church but high enough not to have any traffic, people noise issues (except for some ambulances). Will not hesitate to use this Hotel again. Staff very friendly, efficient and helpful.

Room Tip: As high as possible closest to the Santa Maria N church side (only on set of lft required to reach r...

This hotel is located at the centre of Florence, right in front of the church, which i forget the name! It is also a few minutes away from the MRT.

The room is also spacious and nicely artily designed, which makes one even more fall in love with the city. Hotel breakfasts are a simple - croissants, cheeses, and other small tidbits, but all fresh and delicious. I recommend this for couples who want experience lovely Florence for a couple of days.

Santa Maria Novella is in a perfect location, has friendly, knowledgeable staff, and fantastic rooms.

There's no need for any mass transit or taxi service from this hotel. All of the sites in Florence are within easy walking distance. The Piazza where the hotel is located is active and interesting. The church on the Piazza is a must see!!

the rooms at SMN are spacious and very clean. We had a room on the 6th floor facing the Piazza. There was a fantastic view and music on several nights. There have been warnings on other reviews about noise from the Piazza, but it didn't bother us, maybe it's worse on the lower floors. By the way, the patio on the roof is awesome!

The staff at Santa Maria Novella are excellent, and are all speak English very well.

The breakfast at SMN is very very good. Many hot items, along with pastries, fruit, and cereal. The coffee is strong and plentiful.

Hotel Santa Maria Novella is a perfect choice for visitors to Florence!

Room Tip: Get a room as high up as possible, facing hte Piazza. By the way, the beds are very good.

I already reviewed Santa Maria Novella boutique hotel ---- the best.... there is a wonderful Japanese retaurant on a side alley next to the hotel. I do not remember the name, but with long lines..... delicious food and reasonable. they serve primarily ramen but authentic, clean, and a favorite of the locals as well. Enjoy.
