A week in Florence in 30c + heat was made more bearable by staying at this hotel. The gardens and pool provided a cool sanctuary when the sightseeing was over for the day. All the staff were very friendly and helpful and we couldn't have asked for more. The room was great with good views over Florence. Ok the room...

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Villa Medici. Very clean hotel. Staff is very helpful and friendly.

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. I did find the in-room hair dryer to be of quite poor quality, not having very much power. I was also disappointed that the hotel didn't offer free wifi. I...

We stayed at the Grand Hotel Villa Medici for 3 nights from the 25th August. We were given an upgrade within 20 minutes upon arrival as the door to the balcony had been left open and the carpet was wet and smelly. The hotel is a little tired especially the Bathrooms. The shower/bath leaked and pooled on the floor every...

While this hotel's address is Florence, once you step through the stunning facade (a true Grand European Hotel), you will feel like you are in a resort...there is a very nice shaded swimming pool and you can have a special dinner facing this wonderful pool. We stayed in a nicely decorated room with a nice terrace facing the town's center....

Please avoid this place. I am guilty of not writing enough reviews, but if I did most would be positive. This place rips you off and you end up staying and leaving with a real bad taste.

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.
