We stayed one night, room 213 on floor 2B. This was a return trip to Florence because we loved it so much when we visited 6 years ago. Quiet room, very comfortable bed, large spacious bathroom. The hotel is easily located. If arriving by train at Firenze Santa Maria, when you exit the train station you cross the road and...

Hotel Santa Maria Novella is a wonderful hotel with many great amenities, fantastic service and a very good, complimentary breakfast. Upon arrival, they greeted us and gave us a bottle of champagne without asking because it was our honeymoon. The room itself was very comfortable and had a great view of the church and the square. There is a lot...

Every aspect of this hotel was outstanding. The staff was warmly welcoming, helpful and charming. The location is excellent, a short walk from the train station or the bus station, and on the Piazza di Santa Maria Novella which to our delight has undergone a makeover since we were last there nine years ago. The breakfast buffet was excellent. The...

My wife, two children, and I stayed in connecting rooms overlooking the plaza. The rooms were spacious and extremely well-appointed, and the windows were quite soundproof. The location is terrific - a short walk from the train station and a half-mile from the Duomo. Breakfasts were sumptuous, and the staff was very helpful. Highly recommended!

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.
