Altogether, Villa Azalee was a pleasing place to stay for a couple nights. The rooms were spacious (a single had a double bed, and a double had a double bed plus a day bed) and each one we caught a glimpse of was uniquely decorated. The ac worked fine for us. My only complaints about the rooms (and hallways) were...

We traveled in Italy for 6 weeks and we researched our hotels carefully. The website made it very inviting. When we read through the Trip Advisor reviews for Villa Azalee, we noted that most of the negative reviews were older with more recent reviews being quite positive. We also noted on both the website and in Trip Advisor reviews that...

Walkable from S. Maria Novella Stazione, though neighborhood is undergoing significant construction and is somewhat dirty. Property is charming, yet shows its age. Room in separate building overlooking pleasant courtyard. Staff were helpful in carrying luggage to 2nd floor, making reservations at museums and recommending an excellent restaurant in the area with real local flavor, Vecchio Carlino, across from arch....

We stayed at Villa Azalee during our two-day visit to Florence. The hotel is conveniently located at 10-minute walk from Santa Maria Novella train station. While many parts of this walk are now affected by the tram construction, it is still easily walkable. The service in the hotel was great: excellent English-speaking personnel, nice and clean room and breakfast included....

The Hotel is close enough to the railway station and coaches arriving from Pisa airport, so if you don't mind a 10 minute walk on a level road it should prove very convenient. There are ongoing roadworks close by but these do not really bother you unless perhaps you're arriving by car, although there is also a small car lay...

When you pass the main enterance the hotel,the time and methalic city life are changing. Room and gardenery 2 store building looks like a village house in the country side. You can feel that the time also return back to 30 years ago. Altough the location is mid of the center. We realy like the style and ambiance.

We picked this hotel partly because it was close to the train station--not a bad walking wheeling suitcases. However, the road on one side of our room was a bus stop and the front of the hotel faces a major roadway through the city. It was quite noisy. Three flights of stairs were fine for us, but not for elderly...

Dear Mr./Mrs, thank you for your review. we are so sorry that you had a noisy room. The bus stop was moved from the original point on the begining of the street Via Della Scala to the back side of our Hotel temporary because of the works of the new Tram line in Florence. As far as for the problem...

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.
