The hotel itself is nice, the rooms are large, the bathroom nice, etc, However, felt the staff was unfriendly, and the desk clerk on duty for the 3 nights we were there was downright arrogant, They still use old fashioned keys on this big bulky keyring...

Stayed here for a friend's wedding. Had a nice room actually, quite modern compared to some of the other rooms our friends were staying in. Bedroom / bathroom very clean.

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.
