While this hotel's address is Florence, once you step through the stunning facade (a true Grand European Hotel), you will feel like you are in a resort...there is a very nice shaded swimming pool and you can have a special dinner facing this wonderful pool. We stayed in a nicely decorated room with a nice terrace facing the town's center....

Please avoid this place. I am guilty of not writing enough reviews, but if I did most would be positive. This place rips you off and you end up staying and leaving with a real bad taste. It is a sad memory of Florence. All this despite mostly friendly staff. The problem lies with less than mediocre management. A few...

Stayed here 4 nights in July. Selected this hotel because it is best value and part of Plat Am Ex Fine Hotels and Resorts Program. We were upgraded to a beautiful suite. Wait staff in restaurant are lovely and will accommodate any requests. Concierge helpful and bellman charming. A hidden gem yet just a 10 min walk from city center.

My husband and I stayed one night and were neither terribly impressed nor displeased.

The pool is a real advantage if you are staying for a bit during the warm Florence summer. The common rooms are lovely....

Stayed here for one night with my husband in July and found the hotel to be a calm oasis in a hectic and warm Florence. The bad points first: No separate shower, so you have to stand in the bath tub to shower. Lots of water spilling out on the bath room floor when having a shower. Extremely expensive mini...

Visited Florence with family and had a lovely stay at this hotel. The room was nice, but not what I would expected for the price - however I do understand Florence is generally expensive.

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.
