We chose this hotel because it is easy to get to, only a block away from the Florence train station - easy walking distance with roller suitcases (cars in the city are restricted to residents and businesses). It is located in the Piazza Santa Maria Novella, and although it is ri

Florence is an amazing city of great history, the world's best art, delicious food and wonderful vistas of the Domo towering over the city.

But for visitors gracious and comfortable hotels also are critically important as after walking the 10,000 + steps per day to visit all of

The Santa Maria Novella is right in the heart of the Piazza Santa Maria Novella in Florence. The drinks at the bar are very expensive and some of the staff are good, especially the girls in the breakfast room each morning. The breakfast room is very classy and has the Florence fl

My wife and I took advantage of the US Thanksgiving holiday to travel abroad to Florence for a week. We picked this hotel for it's cost, and the walkable location to most area attractions.

Upon check in, we were shown two rooms, and asked if we would like to upgrade to a junio

Will the hotel be able to give us maps and suggestions for tours when we arrive?Thank you so in advance
Yes, they are super helpful. They are not guides, however so I would use something like Trip Advisor., etc and have an idea before you go about what you are interested in. I think they would be better suited to tell you which is better than the other, etc - for instance - a lot of things you can do without a guide.

Are there any two bedrooms at this hotel with balcony? Any suggestions? If so room numbers please?
Unless you are specifically looking for two bedrooms - the family room might be just fine! We easily slept three, with plenty of room for luggage and relaxation. There is a room which has a roof top spot with view. Not sure if room number. Excellent lodging choice.

Hi there. We want to go to the hotel on January by the car. Where is the best way to park? Is it posible to drive directly to the hotel and then ask for valet parking? We will not use car during our stay, we want just come, leave the luggage in the hotel and after 3 days put luggage into the car and go home. Any advise? Thanks
Gym is in the basement and i don't think there is parking onsite. maybe contact the reception? their service is 2nd to no one.

Hello all. Just a quick comment concerning the review....unless I'm mixing up my hotel stays, the Hotel Santa Maria Novella has a nice little work-out room downstairs. It is located to the right of the computer area. :)
Yes, small room with a couple of cardio machines. Not a full gym, just something to work off a few calories...

The easiest way from the hotel to the Piazza Demidoff?
Sadly (and now a bit late) from here i could not but when i travel i always use google maps. Internet is pretty cheap now once you organise the right tariff and network. I think most hotels in the area (and most areas) also have little maps of the area that show the hotel and the main attractions around the city.
