This hotel was by far the worst hotel we encountered on our 8 city tour of Europe (and also the most expensive). The room had the most terrible smell that we actually had to go out and purchase room deodorizer just to sleep there! The staff was unfriendly and the breakfast was terrible. I would not recommend staying here.

The Unicorno Hotel is a simple, clean looking place, but the smell of sewer gas during our two day stay drove us out a day early. We had trouble sleeping, eating breakfast, or just standing in the lobby with such a terrible odor. We would never stay there again. We checked other hotels nearby and none of them had the...

This hotel was absolutelu disgusting. It had a sewer smell in it that just about killed us. When wwe arrived at the hotel at night, the young man at the desk did not speak a word of English. The next morning the two gentlemen at the desk pretended like there was no smell in the hotel. Other guests complained as...

Lets just say that the smell of sewer gas made your eyes water. Upon checking in there was obviously a problem with the sewer. We brought it up to the man on duty and he pretended not to understand what we were talking about. I would not advise anyone to stay at this hotel. The stench ruined our entire stay...

My friend and I stayed at the Unicorno for two nights in March, 2003. It was an extremely short cab ride from the train station; we should have walked if we'd known how close it was. It lies about 10-15 minues (walking) from the heart of Florence, and has a few restaurants/cafes nearby. Our room was small but comfortable. Very...

We stayed in a couple rooms for 5 nights in mid-November 2003. Staff was very helpful, rooms were clean, beds comfortable. Nice location, easy walk to most everywhere. Windows cut down the road noise very well, but earplugs were helpful. One 3rd floor room has the water heater outside that you hear all night; earplugs very helpful there. The lift...

We stayed at the Unicorno for a long weekend in May. It's located between the main sights and the station, close to the Arno, and within easy walking distance of pretty much everywhere. Staff were friendly, rooms were big, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was very basic - but the Italians don't really go in for breakfast. We'd happily recommend it...

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` !”
