Pros: Location - close to train station and attractions, friendly staff and good price
Cons: Need to go up 2 flights of stairs - no elevator, small bathroom, bed wasn't very comfortable. Also breakfast was basic just warm bread/croissants with jam, juice, coffee
A great location at walking distance from the train station and downtown attractions. The hotel is located on a elevated floor of a historic fifteenth-century building. So they are not allowed to install an elevator. If you look for the kind of international modern comfort...More
Honestly, I'm afraid that if I praise this too high, people will start choosing it much more and I won't be able to get back there again. Just kidding. You don't have to expect any luxury here, or you'll end up disappointed. Our room had...More

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.
