We were for 4 nights and really enjoyed our stay at this hotel - very central and walking distance to everything you could possibly want to see! The rooms are cleaned every day and also fresh towels. Air conditioner worked, breakfast is between 7.30-10 and you have a choice of cornflakes or muesli, fresh fruit cocktail, scrambled eggs, sausages, ham...

Proximity to the train station was ideal for a quick trip. We stayed in a 4 person room which was small but clean and updated. Bathroom was fairly large and included a bathtub. Free wi-fi with password from the front desk. Breakfast was okay, but no fresh fruit and I'm not sure who would want boiled hot dogs.

We stayed at the Unicorno for only one night, would have liked 2 but they were full! But they did book us into another one close by. The staff were very helpful with directions to the major sites. The room had recently been renovated so was smart but a little dark. Nice quite street and close to a garage which...

I was in Florence for 5 days, accomodated at this hotel. It was a good choice in term of location, 5 min walk to railway station Santa Maria Novella. Also the bus to Pisa Airport and Siena can take nearly train station. Friendly staff, good breakfast(not only tipical continental with croissants and tea). Our room was spacious, big and confortable...

Really enjoyed our stay at this hotel, in a quite street so nice and peaceful at night. We were in one of the modern rooms on the top floor, some nice funky modern touches but the room was a little bit dark, only downside. Bathroom etc all excellent.

Central location - close to the Arno and Piazza Santa Maria Novello. Staff was very helpful and spoke enough English. Room was large with good closets, and windows were double glazed, so street noise was not a problem. The bathroom fixtures were new, except for the very tiny shower. Breakfast offered good choices.

My father, brother, and myself were only in Florence for a night and two days. This hotel was within walking distance of the train station. I wish that I had been able to see more of the city, but I had injured my foot and was forced to stay behind. I was glad to be in an air-conditioned room(we were...

My first impression was not good the place smelled strongly of bad drains . As soon as I opened the door to out room my heart sank and I felt I needed to appologise for bringing my mother to such a run down poorly appointed place. Room 204. The decor was very tired looking and bare and the bathroom was...

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.

“Street facing rooms can be noisy, quieter rooms face `light shafts` between houses. Either way don`t expect a `room with a view` !”
