This hotel is relatively close to the centre, about a 25 minute walk. They do, however, have a house van that we regularly used instead of a cab and the service was excellent. The pool is terrific, set in a garden in the back. They are very tolerant of kids having fun. The garden is very nice. Breakfast is deliciious...

Beautiful hotel, some rooms modern, some antique, crazy rules about wifi. It's not free, you can't buy days in advance, you can only buy one hour or 3 hours and then increase it up to 24 hours. This is nuts. You get a use rid and password. Beautiful amenities, tastefully decorated. Helpful staff.

This hotel is just lovely. The lobby and rooms are beautiful, the lobby in the old grand style, the room pretty and modern.

I stayed at the Grand Hotel Villa Medici for 1 night whilst on a business trip. The hotel has a lovely entrance and aptly named when you encounter the hotel décor.

Spent 4 nights here in February with wife and daughter. This quaint hotel is a 2 minute walk from the Santa Novella train station.

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.
