Thank you so much for your review. Sorry for the noisy of the street. Now there are also the works fro the new line of the tramway. We hope when they will finish, the next year, the traffic will less.
A big hug.
Good location, just a few minutes walk from train station. But a little noise from outside. The decorations of the B&B was beautiful. The room was clean and the staff cleans your room every day. The owner was very helpful and friendly. Strongly recommend!More

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.
