The Montebello Splendid is a fabulous hotel within a few minutes walk of the sights of Florence. From the moment we arrived, we were looked after by the friendly staff. The room we stayed in was absolutely gorgeous and the breakfast (which is included in the price) was very nice. I will definitely return to Florence and the Montebello.

This hotel is in a very peaceful area of Florence, about 15 mins to sights (this could be the only disadvantage if you don't like walking which we didn't mind) The staff were very friendly especially the breakfast staff.

This hotel is a very beautifully maintained hotel. The rooms are a decent size and very clean upon check-in. We encountered a few problems though... problems that a 5 Star Hotel should not have. First of all we found a long hair in the shower robe...... I was not impressed, upon bringing it to reception's attention, it was replaced immediately....

Pictures can be deceiving. This hotel is not in the heart of the city but rather in a residential area & a 15 minute walk to all the sites & restaurants.

The hotel has a lot of charme and is located in the perfect spot: very close to the main shopping area and the main monuments and at the same time is quiet and away from the tourist crowd.

This hotel is quite simply fantastic! It is located close to the centre of Florence yet tucked away enough to be quiet. The staff were magnificent and helpful in every instance. The hotel is comfy and the food great. I would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone.

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.
