As a profeessional travel writer/photographer who has stayed in various accommodations throughout Italy, I loved this hotel which I considered a super-find in Florence as far as comfort, service and location. I was "on vacation," not working, for three days. My immaculate room overlooked the Arno River -- and there was a balacony from which to enjoy the views; the...

An absolutely beautifully maintained boutique hotel set on the River Arno, a short easy walk to everywhere in Firenze. Rooms are large, comfortable and beautifully decorated to capture the essence of the hotel. Very helpful staff, able to guide you effectively to maximise your time and the sight-seeing options. A beautiful rear garden is definitely worth a sit and espresso....

My husband and I are on our first trip to Italy. Our travel agent suggested this hotel for us and we are very happy she did. We will spend a total of 7 nights in this hotel. We have a room on the 4th floor. It is spacious, has a little balcony that overlooks their back garden. We can see...

The Hotel Principe made my first visit to Florence perfect. With only 20 rooms, the staff makes you feel more like family friends than clients. The garden is beautiful, an oasis in the city, it's quiet and shaded. I sat in the garden and enjoyed perfect coffee and talked with the matriarch Anna, a lovely woman. The rooftop patio offers...

At first I was skeptical, as we had been staying in Marriotts so far on our European trip, but this was a wonderful little hotel. My only complaint was thin walls. Lucky for us, though, there are very few rooms (24, I believe) and everyone was relatively quiet. I would recommend earplugs, it really made a difference and sleep is...

The Hotel Principe is a find. It shares a street with the likes of the St. Regis and Westin Excelsior at a much more affordable price and offers a boutique charm, great service, breathtaking balcony views, and excellent breakfast. Our stay was perfect. The staff brought fresh flowers to our room each day, the concierge was helpful with dinner reservations,...

My family really enjoyed talking with Guiliano, whose family are the proprietors, and appreciated all the advice he gave us about our trip. The hotel was beautiful - high ceilings, picture moldings, art work on the ceiling, beautiful chandaliers, and immaculatey kept. Our room for four was great, too, and spacious. The location -- right on the Arno -- was...

Enjoyed my time there thoroughly..The staff were amazingly helpful. I got a great rate on the room, and was completely satisfied with the accomodations.. Often, if you get a cheap rate your room is at the bottom rung when it comes to amenities and size. But not so at the Principe. I had accidentally taken my B&B key from my...

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.
