We arrived at the hotel around 10am and the staff was kind enough to store our luggage for us. The room was ready by 2pm. Much to our delight, the room was beautiful. Large, with a large bathroom. It was very elegantly decorated and in perfect condition. The staff was very helpful with extra towels and pillows. In the morning...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

We stayed one night, room 213 on floor 2B. This was a return trip to Florence because we loved it so much when we visited 6 years ago. Quiet room, very comfortable bed, large spacious bathroom. The hotel is easily located. If arriving by train at Firenze Santa Maria, when you exit the train station you cross the road and...

This was an outstanding hotel. The staff were friendly, and very helpful. The location was a short walk from the train station, and we were able to walk to all of the stuff we wanted to see, including Uffizi, Accademia, Palazzo Vecchio, Duomo. We only needed a taxi to get to the airport. We stayed in a standard room, with...

The Hotel Santa Maria Novella was the perfect location for my mother and me. We booked a suite (I highly recommend room #601) which had a 2-tiered private terrace. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The complimentary breakfast was huge, homemade and delicious! The fresh breads were so so good!! We loved our location which was just 2-3...

This hotel is very well situated - a few minutes' walk from the station but still close to the historic centre. It would appear to have been recently refurbished; in fact, the whole of the Santa Maria Novella piazza is much classier than I remember from 15 or so years ago. The room was mid-sized but comfortable. The bathroom, including...

The room is on a smaller scale for its price, but it's elegantly decorated with very classy taste. Bathroom is also a bit small. However, the location is superb that I could see the plaza and Santa Maria Novella church from my window. Staff is nice and helpful. Breakfast is excellent, set in a magnificent dining room.

From the moment you walk in the friendly and professional staff makes you feel right at home at this lovely hotel in Florence. Only a 5-10 min walk from the train station and positioned in a small quaint piazza (not overflowing with tourists) but with a few outdoor cafes makes this location ideal. It is an easy walk to all...

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.
