Our room (#3) for 3 nights was very large, as was the ensuite bathroom, and both were spotless. We had a small balcony overlooking the street. The hotel is situated in a very quiet part of town just a block from the river, a 15 minute walk to the train station, and a pleasant walk to virtually all the sites...

We actually stayed in this bed & breakfast in March 2010 (not November) for 6 nights. It is a quirky accommodation which is a second floor flat which has been converted and divided into (I think) 5 rooms with ensuite bathrooms, the reception and breakfast area. The room we stayed in did not have a window onto the street, but...

In walking distance from the railway station. 10 min. Near the river. Near a closed area with the American Consulate. Very friendly English speaking reception. Some rooms have no real windows. Just a little one over the door. But fine air condition. The incuded breakfast was simple with no meat or cheese. But ok. The internet connection was perfect.

An okay place to stay for the price, but it’s not for everyone. It's nice and quiet, very central, and the breakfast - although basic - is very enjoyable. The free Wi-Fi is also a nice touch. Unfortunately the rooms are scruffy - and that's putting it mildly. Ours smelled terribly of smoke, had never seen a duster (ever), and...

This place was spectacular! It is an apartment spaced into several rooms with a very nice central area for sitting and socializing (if there was anyone else there!). We went right after the peak season, so I think we were the only ones in the entire place. The owner is only there from ~8am to 1pm... The only irregularity was...

The B&B is conveniently located, however there's so much better out there in Florence, that I don't see the point to stay in this ugly, small and sad B&B. The owner is not very helpful, didn't allow late check out despite the B&B was empty and charged a night we missed due to flight cancellation. At breakfast I asked a...

Residenza Il Maggio is a wonderful choice for a stay in Florence. We stayed there for 2 nights. The location is perfect, in a very quiet and safe neighbourhood, close to the US Embassy, near to all the main attractions. The owners, Mr. Roberto and his wife, were very kind, and helped with all our questions. We were given "the...

Il Maggio was a great place to be in, coupled with a great host- Roberto, we had a blast in Florence. Despite the fact that we were late, Roberto waited patiently for us. During our short stay, he gave advice on where to go, what to do, and when we finally had to drive off to our next destination, he...

This is a wonderful B&B. We had room 3 which is apparently the best room, it was huge as was the ensuite, we had our own balcony. I understand some rooms may have no windows though. It was spotless and they even made our bed for us, which we didn't expect. Breakfast was wonderful, toast, pastries, yoghurt, juice, coffee, tea,...

SImply to repeat all before me and add a vote for Roberto Bonanni and his wife, nice people, relaxing rooms, ultra clean throughout, welcoming and helpful, yummy cakes for breakfast too.

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.
