The hotel is actually a large apartment with 5 rooms, but the rooms are very roomy, especially the bathroom I had. I think I've never had such a big bathroom in a hotel. The breakfast was quite limited and the toast was too crunchy. The service was superb. The area is very safe, as the US-embassy is right next door... More

If you are on a budget travelling and would like to have a nice and tidy place to stay in Florence, Residenza II Maggio B&B would fit all you required for a B&B. This B&B is located next to the river and on the same street as the US Embassy, so that you would definitely feel safe in the place.... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in room #1. There are only 5 rooms in the B&B so it was very cozy and we had the breakfast room to ourselves most mornings. The breakfast is minimal but everything we needed (toast, cereal, yogurt, fruit) and they did make us cappuccinos every morning which were excellent! The room is small but... More

This place is perfect for quiet and peaceful...The road is blocked off due to the embassy being very close so no loud noises in the night. It is only about a 10-20 min walk to all the main attractions, particularly the Ponte Vecchio bridge and the Uffizi. The place is right next to the river which is a lovely to... More

This pensione with breakfast may be a bit out of the historic centre, but the location in a quiet area strikes a good balance between the SMN train station and the Ponte Vecchio. The US Embassy is just down the street and as a result the roads are blocked to vehicle traffic and there's always police in the area. After... More

Wasn't too far of a walk to get around all the main sights and right close to the river! A very pleasant and accommodating owner who was also very helpful in planning what to see in Florence and Tuscany. The breakfast is beyond average with a lot more selection than expected with a continental breakfast. The staircase in the building... More

My husband and I recently traveled to Italy to visit our daughter. While we had a very rocky start to our trip due to an airline strike, Mrs Albina Bullari, our host, was very welcoming, accommodating and helpful. The rooms were pleasant and quiet, the location for us workable, and our host wonderful. Albina was very helpful in booking trips,... More

The welcome package already let me know that the owners care about their customers and I personally liked it. The rooms were very cozy and the washrooms very clean. Only the shower was a bit old but clean anyway and the rest of the room and washroom items looked new. AC in every room and bfast included for that price... More

This was a nice and pleasant experience. Mrs Albina Bullari and her family are very sympathetic hosts who provide very good services. We won't dwell on the location near the American embassy nor the fact that parking your car nearby is not really a problem : ) Although breakfast is sober and standard, it s a good starter for each...

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.
