We were looking for a place in Florence for an overnight stay (we were living in Bologna for a month). so we wanted a place close to the rail station and the heart of Firenze. A good friend from Bologna recommended it and we booked a room on line. It was a very short walk (leisurely 15 minis with a...

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.

Both Front Desk attendants spoke English when we were there. You will find out that it is much more likely than not that Front Desk attendants at every hotel in a major Italian city WILL speak English.

I could respond yes or no and it really means zero--- The ONLY one that can give you a reliable answer is the Hotel management themselves. Email them.

No parking as far as I know. Great location facing a plaza and near the train station.
