The best thing about this hotel is most definitely the location. It is 10 minutes from the Duomo and easily accessible to all the main attractions of Florence. It is also an easy walk from the train station, so unless you have a very large bag or walking difficulties, there is no reason to get a cab. The staff are... More

Hotel Nizza was our option when we had to book a hotel in Florence. It was well located and it was close to the Santa Maria Novella train station. It's a budget hotel that we found quite nice. It's very simple, but also very cozy. I really think that it's simplicity is what makes it very nice. Don't expect a... More

Travelled as a group of 6 friends and family. Clean, comfortable, adjacent rooms in a quiet corner of the 2nd floor overlooking street or back courtyard. Excellent breakfast.

Very good location. Just around the corner from SMN church and square. A few minutes walk from the duomo. The hotel is small. It's modest but it's nicely looked after, and clean. Bed was comfortable. Shower fine. TV fine. Staff friendly and straight forward. Breakfast was fine particularly as the hotel is very reasonably priced for central Florence. I would... More

Great location in the old town but a little basic. The guy on reception was very pleasant & helpful. Breakfast just about adequate. Rooms are clean but beds a tad hard but it is central Florence so you have to pay more than usual. All the major landmarks are nearby.

Rooms are equipped with new orthopedic mattresses which are of course a bit harder then other classic ones. Thanks for your kind feedback in any case, this help us to understand customer's needs. Regards, Michele More

The hotel located 5-10 mins from the train station. However, it is 500 years old building that the lift is on 2nd floor. You cannot expected it is a modern hotel but most of the hotel at Florence with this price range are the same and nothing to compliance. Please prepare yourself if you are carrying 30+KG luggage and have... More

My mother, brother and I stayed in Florence for only two nights but were delighted to have found Hotel Nizza. Between the station and the main attractions the location is excellent. On top of that both Michele and Edi made our stay welcoming and simply added to the joy of being in Florence. Michele also being a local for several... More

The hotel's location is convenient, just a walking distance from the main train station, the Duomo and other attractions. For persons with poor legs, I would consider again since there is a staircase to climb to the reception from the street. Despite the central location our room was quite calm, since it was not towards the street. The breakfast was... More

I would honestly upgrade this hotel to a three star if I had the power. The couple who run this place are so nice and really want to make their customers experiences as best as they can. I asked one of the managers to reserve a taxi and she helped me do it.

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.
