This excellent hotel is 200 yards from the train station and perhaps 400 from Brunelleschi's Duomo and is situated on a piazza whose main feature is the impressive church of Santa Maria Novella. All of historic Firenze is accessible by foot. The hotel is a group of several Renaissance buildings which have been thoroughly modernized. In keeping with its name...

Location is my first priority. This excelent 5 star hotel is a few steps from the train station where there is an undergound parking lot. Florence is a small town so the hotel is also in the centro storico, close to all the museums and sites.

By reading other reviews we've learned that this hotel has many grades of rooms. We booked a 5th floor room with a view. We see that some rooms face the courtyard and have no views, some are spacious and some are luxurious. Pros: The lobby and sitting areas are fabulous and comfortable. They are filled with a collection of items...

We stayed here for 2 nights. The woman on the front desk welcomed us and was very helpful with a map, directions and suggestions. Our room was spotlessly clean and the bed was comfortable. We enjoyed the atmosphere of the bar and the breakfast room. There is a gelateria opposite corner of the palazzo which sells many flavours.

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.
