My husband I stayed at the Bellvue House in late December 2016. It was awesome! Luciano and his wife were some welcoming and helpful! As other reviewers have noted, the location is fantastic and the local restaurants Luciano recommended were so good, we visited the same one three times. It was right around the corner and a five minute walk....

The Bellevue House was very charming and is in a great location. Walking distance to many restaurants and sights to see. The management was very helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend going there. It was also reasonably priced.

My wife and I stayed in Florence for two nights as part of our honeymoon vacation through Europe, and we chose the Bellevue House based on the Rick Steves guide. We had an excellent stay here. Alessandro was incredibly friendly and helpful. The room was clean, spacious, and comfortable. We would definitely stay here again.

I was pleased with my stay at Bellevue House. This small, family run place is friendly and welcoming. They will carry your luggage up the 90+ steps when you arrive, and back down when you leave. My room was spacious, clean, & reminded me of stays at my grandmother's house: nothing fancy, a little worn, but comfortable. An electric teapot...

We so enjoyed our stay in Florence - Bellevue House is very centrally located, the owners very friendly and helpful - giving us a map, with very good commentary, of key locations and restaurants nearby. Our room was big, comfortable and had all the right stuff. We really enjoyed our stay here! and if we are fortunate to come back...

Pros: super nice staff; location; nice and welcoming. Cons: steps up (only an issue if you have low mobility, because owners will gladly help you up with your luggage); no breakfast. Conveniently located in a short-walk distance from the bus and train station, 8-minute walk to the Duomo, in front of a self-service laundry place and 3 minutes from a...

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.
