This was the third time I've stayed at the Villa Medici and each time I've liked it more. The staff is amazing, always helpful and smiling. Rooms are a bit small if you are used to the upgrades that come with Leading Hotels or Amex Platinum but very comfortable and immaculate. The bathroom is large and the shower terrific. Breakfast...

We arrived after having a horrible experience in Uptown Palace Hotel in Milan, we checked in, What a difference! Greeted with a smile, was offered the complimentary upgrade, because we were using AMEX Plat . Restaurant service was great, our waiter seemed excited about all the dishes and almost made us want to try them all, very charming. The food...

The hotel itself is physically beautiful, with a nice blend of modern and old world touches. It's location is within about an eight or nine minute walk from the train station, and is in a nice area with plenty of eateries. The staff, however, are outstanding, especially the concierge. They go above and beyond to make your stay special.

The good - beautiful old hotel with lovely gardens and luxurious feel. Close to the SMN train station easy to find and easy for getting in and out of town but not in the central area of town. Quiet location and peaceful. Be aware that as with some European hotels air conditioning is not available year round. So be sure...

The location is outside of the craziness in central Florence in Prato. Nice neighborhood with some ethnic food restaurants. Relaxing, quiet and elegant destination. My room had a great view of the Duomo and Giotto's tower. It also looked out on the pool with its small fountain.

This hotel benefits and ride on the Medici name. The interior is old in fixtures and fittings (you can tell from the conditions of its carpets) and style is very dated. There is classical but modern (like Villa Cora) and there is just dated style neglect of attention. needs a massive uplift. Smelt it's age, sometimes dank. But the one...

Nice smal luxury hotel with a good location and service. One of the best breakfasts ever. Room was not too large but the roof terrace was spacious with great views. Stylish and elegant accomodation in one of the most beautiful cities of the world.

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.
