Hotel Globus was completely renovated in June 2016. The new reception area, located on the street level of Via Sant'Antonino, is now connected to all rooms thanks to our new elevator. The new breakfast area overlooks a small courtyard with a nice vertical garden. Our staff is a mixture of all ages, languages, cultures and countries, always smiling and willing to offer you tips on places to visit, restaurants to try. They're always there for you. For what regards our location, it is definitely one of the key features of Globus. The proximity to all the Santa Maria Novella train station and all main attractions, including the Duomo, both major museums (Uffizi and Accademia Galleries) or Ponte Vecchio, among others, makes it very easy to plan even the busiest day without the need to lose time getting from the hotel to your desired location. What makes our neighbourhood special though is definitely the Mercato Centrale, located just around the corner from here. In the morning, that is where you want to go if you're planning to buy some food to take back home, or simply want to try the famous Tuscan specialties, "trippa" and "lampredotto". Where this place shines though is the 1st floor, open from 10am until midnight. It's a big, modern open space with many restaurants, serving a variety of really delicious food. Make sure to check it out!

I stayed at this this hotel for one night on my own while visiting Florence. The room was small and compact but enough for one person and has everything you could need (toiletries, hairdryer, safe, etc). The hotel manager was very welcoming and recommended a place to eat that

Agree! If you email the hotel I’m sure they’ll do all they can to make sure you have something before you leave. The train station is literally a 5 minute walk from the hotel.

Dear durgaraja28, From the Santa Maria Novella train station, take the exit on the left (by the pharmacy) and make a right; continue straight for approximately 200 meters (656 feet) until you reach Piazza dell’Unità. From there, follow Via Sant’Antonino: Hotel Globus is located at street number 24 Black. Looking forward to welcoming You. Giovanni - - Guest Services Agent

We arrived early and was able to check in I guess it just depends on how busy the hotel is. I know the staff will do their very best to accommodate you.

Dear Ms Lianalol good morning from Globus Urban Hotel and thanks for your email. Further to your request we would like to inform you that the Hotel does not have its own parking. We would suggest you, anyway, to use a private garage for their convenience as well as added security as opposed to street parking. The nearest one to our Hotel is Sant'Antonino parking ( Via Sant'Antonino, 6 ) that, of course in ZTL area, but it's about 50m far from the hotel. Coming from Santa Caterina d'Alessandria street follow the way to reach the train Station first and Piazza dell'Unità Italiana than. Once there take Sant'Antonino Street ( there is a bar at the beginning of the street called Bar delle Rose ) and just after few meters you find the parking on your left. They immediately take note of your license plate and inform the police that you passed a ZTL area just to reach the parking. Since garage Sant'Antonino closes at about midnight we will give you alternative garages that will close later (around 2 am): 1 - Garage Giglio, located in Via del Giglio, just 70 meters from the hotel applie fees starting (depending on size of the car) from 28.00 Euro per day- phone 0039055216152; 2 – Garage Nazionale, located in Via Nazionale, just 70 meters from the Hotel applie fees starting (depending on size of the car) from 28.00 Euro per day - phone 0039055284041. One last thing, since there are street works all around the town for the new tramway, consider to set the navigator for the city main railroad station Santa Maria Novella as arriving point, once there we are really nearby. We remain at your disposal for any further assistance you may need. Best regards, Roberta Guest Relation Manager
