Welcome to Hotel Ariele in Florence, welcome home... To really appreciate the building you live in, it is primarily important to get to know its story. Hotel Ariele is made of two different timeline buildings. The first building is carved out an ancient 1400s tower while the second building derives from a prestigious 1700 palace which is now headquarters of many embassies, amongst others the Helvetian Embassy during Italian Reign. The palace has also hosted numerous Florentine families, amongst others is worth mentioning the Arcangeli of Strozzavolpe also known as order keeping people. Even nowadays you can still smell and feel the luxurious, elegant and sophisticated atmosphere of this Florentine house, just like it was in those wonderful years of the past centuries. You can sense it in the big rooms with the typical arched ceilings, in the intimacy of common areas embellished with antique fireplaces and beautiful pictures on the walls and even in our small but pretty and peaceful garden ideal place for having a drink, reading a book or just entertaining yourself with your friends and loved ones after a day admiring our beautiful and unique Florence or even after a working day when relax is needed. All 42 rooms elegantly furnished and equipped with all comfort, paying particular attention to details, the competent and experienced directors together with our warm-welcoming and expert staff will make sure that your experience in Florence shall be satisfying, exciting, relaxing and unforgettable...See you soon again at Ariele's, your own home...

Neighbourhood
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.

Hi, I am sorry to say that I do not know. However, to our observations, the surrounding of Ariele are not the most crowded an there should be parkin room in the street. Anyway, I would recommend to contact directly to hotel.
