Super budget hotel. Can't decide if it's worth 1 or 2 stars. Let start with the lobby, toilets didn't flush, upholstery on sofa's with cheap microfiber absorbing all the perspiration from the loads of visitors on a humid summer day. Extremely tiny elevator resulting in long lines or hauling all of the luggage up a couple of flights of stairs.... More

The hotel is located close to the railway station and public transport, restaurants and places of interest, we stayed for 3 nights close to hop on hop off bus stop as well. Staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms average but our room had a great view over the surrounding suburbs very rustic.

The Byron is very close to Santa Maria Novella station and is easy to find. We arrived there before 12 noon and were pleasantly surprised to get a room right away.

Had the worse experience dealing with these people. Booke 6 days accomodation through my Travel Agent in Austalia some 5 months ago. All went well until arrival. We were told that the room booked had water pipe problems and a room had been organised at another hotel. Fine until we saw our room, a match box room made up. We... More

The reason this is version 2 is explained below. My daughter stayed at the Byron last summer during a university-sponsored Study Abroad trip with a group of 14 other college students, and she and I are writing this review together.

Two things good about this hotel is the location and their free breakfast buffet. The staff are very accommodating, we came in with no reservation and they gladly book us a room. The room, I should say is more like renting an apartment. overall, if you are a budget travelller, who needs a room to stay and don't care about... More

Bed is like sleeping on rocks. Shower barely works aswell as being riddled with mould.. Breakfast was shocking and the staff were rude and gave terrible service. Only good thing was it is close to the station.

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.
