Really disappointed by this place. I know Florence is expensive but rooms were cramped and dingy and up three steep flights of stairs with no lift.
Good air con, fridge in room and owner helpful but I am afraid I would not book here again
If you're on a budget, this hotel is perfect. You can't get a better location for that price: you can see the Duomo from the entrance. The room we got was clean and cleaned everyday. The shower was in the room. We got real towels...More
Florence is notoriously expensive for hotels, so this one is a steal. However, please read what other posters have said about the steps and luggage (which is what I should have done!). There are 72 steps up a circular stairway and carrying a 50 pound...More
So close to Duomo! We could see it from our room which was a huge highlight. Room was huge. Bathroom was interesting, our toilet was in our shower but we saw it as quirky.

Italy > Tuscany > Province of Florence > Florence > 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.
