Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

We have enjoyed our visit to Florence and the hotel as well. It is not inexpensive but very well kept with a great breakfast.It has very interesting watches all over since the owner is a watch collector. Access to sights is excellent,the train station is very close by and the concierge very helpful. I would definitely recommend the hotel.

This is a top notch hotel, a 5 minute walk from the Santa Maria Novella train station and located on S.M.N. square, but it's a quiet, elegant hotel. Our room was excellent, we thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast and the staff were superb--incredibly helpful. When we go back to Florence, we will absolutely stay at Hotel L'Orologio--that's an easy decision. The...

I titled this review - the pillows - simply because the quality and comfort of those things we often take for granted reflect just one of the things that make this property a place you should consider staying.

This hotel was fabulous! It's low lit candlelight ambience is so relaxing as well as scents that are piped into the hallways. The beds are large and comfortable with crisp white bedding and the rooms are larger than most european hotels. The breakfast was typical for Florence hotels. They have a great bar and restaurant with beautiful blue lit pools....

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.
