A beautiful hotel with the friendliest and most helpful staff I have ever encountered. Perfectly positioned for touring in Florence and elsewhere in the region.

The hotel itself is nice, and if you don't mind spending 10-15 minutes walking to go to the center, it's quite handy. The surroundings are quite (compared to the other good hotels in the center), modern and comfortable. Their literature states elegant shops (none found, apart from a laundry), restaurants (one only, quite good outside the hotel - named Pape)....

The service was excellent! Very accommodating. Massimo, who waited on us several times, was a pleasure and made the dinning experience that much more wonderful! Gabrielle recommended some excellent restaurants to us, in particular IL Profeta, which was a really unique find for us. Montebello Splendid was within walking distance to Firenze and with all the wonderful food and wine...

Beautiful rooms (the duplex suites are stunning), great architecture, only a 10minute walk along the Arno to all major Florence areas, excellent staff (they even remembered me after 2 years), great breakfast buffet. The hotel is clean and lovely - there are no complaints to have and I strongly recommend it.

This hotel has a lot of pros and a few cons...Pros: easy walk to center, VERY quiet inside and out. Very upscale rooms and baths. Cons: Reception staff are very cold. Seem to cater to business traveler. I wouldn't go again, especially given the very high prices.

Windows actually open, instead of the locked cage type you get...

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.
