I was looking for a hotel a little bit away from the city center with some peace and quiet as well as nice amenities and this hotel had it all. Being just over 1/2 mile from the attractions in Florence it was a perfect spot for my wife and I. The rooms were huge, the beds were really comfortable and...

Stayed here for a wedding , The hotel is lovely , rooms are large and clean, great bathrooms. The Hotel is an easy 15 min stroll to the centre. Breakfast was a little disappointing for the 36 euros per person so chose to eat breakfast out for the rest of our stay. Swimming pool is a lovely small private area...

This is a lovely hotel with close proximity to the Santa Maria Novella train station. We chose this hotel due to the location, and the fact that we were traveling with kids and wanted a pool. This is a very tall order in a city known more for food, art, and architecture than recreation, and we were happy with our...

We stayed at this hotel for one night, because we wanted to explore Florence. First of all, the service is terrible and very cold. They don't like to greet you and you feel like you are bothering them if you want to ask any questions. When we checked out, no one asked us how our stay was or anything else....

This hotel was beautiful and the staff was so helpful and friendly. They recommended great restaurants and treated us like royalty. Breakfast was included and was delicious. There was tremendous variety and everything was fresh. There is a complimentary shuttle service and our driver went out of his way to get us to the Ufizzi on time in bad traffic....

The hotel was great, service was awesome. They gave us a late check-out as we were only there one night so that definitely made us smile. The pool was out of service and that was the reason we booked the hotel since we had been staying at an apartment for two weeks so that was the only down-side. Also the...

The Gran Hotel Villa Medici in Florence is a beautiful old-world, first class hotel with excellent customer service. This small luxury hotel is in a great location in Florence. The food is outstanding, and the entire staff could not be more friendly and professional. Special thanks to one of the staff, the concierge, Matino.

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.
