The family was very nice and helpful during our stay. The location is excellent near attractions and train station. Good home base for Tuscany. Self service laundry is very close. I would recommend this accommodation.

Gave us a lot of tips about the places to visit and eat, which we appreciated very much!! Though we need to climb the staircase to reach the hotel, but it's...

We stayed two night at Bellevue House with our two children (7, 11). The room was really big and had a convertible sofa. We also had our own bathroom. Everything was spotless. The location is perfect for exploring Florence, with also many places to eat nearby. Our hosts were extremely helpful, from helping us getting a parking space for our...

My husband I stayed at the Bellvue House in late December 2016. It was awesome! Luciano and his wife were some welcoming and helpful! As other reviewers have noted, the location is fantastic and the local restaurants Luciano recommended were so good, we visited the same one three times. It was right around the corner and a five minute walk....

My wife and I stayed in Florence for two nights as part of our honeymoon vacation through Europe, and we chose the Bellevue House based on the Rick Steves guide. We had an excellent stay here. Alessandro was incredibly friendly and helpful. The room was clean, spacious, and comfortable. We would definitely stay here again.

I was pleased with my stay at Bellevue House. This small, family run place is friendly and welcoming. They will carry your luggage up the 90+ steps when you arrive, and back down when you leave. My room was spacious, clean, & reminded me of stays at my grandmother's house: nothing fancy, a little worn, but comfortable. An electric teapot...

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.
