We booked this hotel as we knew that there was no time to stay in the hotel. We had a jam packed schedule in Florence with day tours. Our expectations were low. The hotel has basic facilities. The hotel is located in the centre of old Florence with many historic monuments right at walking distance. Lot of food joints are...

I was quite disappointed with hotel elite, and quite uncomfortable. In the pictures you will not find a picture of the room we stayed in, and for good reason, it was the size of a cupboard with a queen size bed in it and a shower in the corner. Why on earth was there a shower in the corner with...

This was my first ever disappointment regarding selection of a hotel after reading reviews of TripAdvisor. As a traveller with family, the surroundings is not good at all. Nobody informed us that the reception gets closed around 5. We reached there at around 8pm and nobody was there. After waiting for sometime one local person informed that we need to...

Small hotel that was perfect for me (single female traveler). It was apartment style so use receive a key for you room and a key to the front gate of the building. The room is clean and the woman at the front desk was charming and helpful. The surrounding area is wonderful. Walking distance from hotel minerva rooftop and joshua...

We used this hotel because it was very close to the train station. It is located on the third floor (elevator to get up) of a building which is 50 yards from the train station and 50 yards (in opposite direction) to the food market and shopping. It is also a short walk from the major attractions. This is not...

This pensione was not impressive from the outside but up the steps you will find a bubbly owner aiming to please! It is very clean in a great location and safe with locks on all doors inside and out! No breakfast included but espresso/coffee machine available.

Good hotel great location and super clean! Recommended definitely! Staff is great as well. Be warned one level with all rooms on the same level. Stairs are a lot without a lot of lightening. Get private bathroom as well or else your sharing and it becomes hostel feeling. Breakfast two euros worth it.

We loved the location of this hotel—we were able to walk to all the spots on our itinerary, including Piazzale Michelangelo, the market, the duomo, Palazzo Vecchio, Santa Croce Church, some awesome restaurants, and more. Also, you won’t find a nicer receptionist than Nadia. Like many European hotels, there’s no elevator. We essentially climbed one flight of stairs to reception...

The hotel is only 200 - 300 meters away from the Firenze S.M.N. train station which you will easily walk to the hotel. The lady at the lobby was very friendly and gave us very good take care. The room was better than I expected for 2 stars hotel.

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.
