The view is amazing. The staff is friendly, and so is the pool staff. The pool is a great place to cool off in on hot days. The breakfast buffet is ok but I do not recommend the pancakes. The ice cream shop around the corner is i've best I've ever had in my life. The rooms are all one...

Had an amazing experience. Beautiful interior and super smart and friendly staff. Would recommend this hotel to friends and family! Very great and memorable trip. The gym was quiet small and dull but useful. The rooms and spacious and the bathrooms are huge with a bathtub. The location is close to the train station and right in the center.

Our initial experience arriving in Florence was horrible. We called American Express and they recommended this hotel. Though a little expensive, they offered breakfast and a complementary dinner the first night. Both the breakfast and dinner service was excellent. The staff spoke excellent English and were very helpful. The hotel is close to the main tourist attractions and the train...

We stayed here for three nights whilst visiting our son who is currently studying in Florence. Usually we stay at a Starwood or equivalent but we got a reasonable deal by phoning the hotel direct and Trip Advisor crits seemed generally favourable. Initial impressions were good. The building is historic and the staff were warm and welcoming. Downstairs the public...

First let me say, we were coming here after four days at Castello Di Casole so Villa Medici had their work cut out for them following that incredible hotel.

Big well run hotel. A good choice for large groups. Comfortable rooms as they should be at the price. In my opinion the area does not quite match the hotel's style. For small groups and couples there are many more options in the very centre with more character and charm and for less money.

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.
