We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights earlier this month and what a great find it was! We had booked double room room with ensuite and it was perfect, there was just enough space for our two cases and us. The bed was a tad on the firm side for my liking but after a long day of sightseeing...

Great location. Nice and clean. Friendly staff. English well spoken. Great noise insulation, extremely quiet for a hotel so near night spots. Price low to average for the area in prime season. The third bed was a real bed, not just a cot stuck in the middle of the room. Room was nice size, bathroom well appointed. We were very...

Cannot say enough nice things about the accommodations at Hotel Sole. The rooms are clean and well-maintained. The staff is friendly and curtious. The location is amazing with a views of a florentine street that truly makes you feel like you are living in Florence. And you are within walking distance of everything.

Hotel Sole is in a great location close the the S.M.N trainstation in Florence. It is within walking distance (with luggage) however when we arrived we got a cab to the hotel (but on return to the station we walked as we knew our way around!)

We had a great week in Florence and our stay at this hotel (6 nights) made the experience all the more enjoyable. Perfect location - just a few steps from Piazza Santa Maria Novella, and a lazy 5-minute walk from the Duomo and Piazza della Signoria. The hotel was extremely clean, the room was delicately scented which gave it a...

Highly recommend this hotel for the fantastic location and friendly service. Really great value, especially considering the size of the rooms, private bathrooms and cleanliness.

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.
