I spent two nights in the Franz and wish I could've stayed longer. The rooms are spacious and clean, and the place is well-located near the river in Florence, not far from the train station. The staff are really friendly (we arrived after the limit for check-in, and the guy, whose name I can't remember, came from where he lives...

This is the best B&B I have ever stayed in Europe. The host was awesome and he gave us advice on what to do and eat during our stay. The room was well equipped and spacious (my partner and I stayed in a room which can accommodate 4 people, I think). The breakfast was great and with a great variety...

After waiting 90 minutes for someone to show up and let us into our room (they don't have 24hr reception so we called that morning to advise of our arrival just, as they asked), we finally got into the double private bathroom. The guy was nice when we arrived; very sorry that he'd been told the wrong time & that...

Let me preface this with saying that we did NOT stay at Franz House & this is a review about what happened. We notified Franz House via email per their request what time we would be getting to Florence (which was around 8:30pm). When we showed up, we rang the door bell repeatedly and waited at the door for a...

We spent a very nice time at Franz House. Everybody was really nice and helpful. the bathrooms were always clean and the whole place had a cozzy feeling, as if we were at home. The rooms were simple but very neat and cheerful. The best part was the location and the breakfast.

Very central location (10 minutes walk to the train station), clean and bright rooms, on the 2nd floor with lift, free W-LAN, favourable and good breakfast, friendly and helpful people. During the day the landlord lives in the flat with his wife and his little child (no siesta is possible!) and the street is all-day (traffic, construction work) and all...

I stayed a few days in Firenze, and am so grateful I chose Franz House for my accomodation. The hosts were so nice, helpful and welcoming. The room was small but perfect for me...and the beds....quite possibly the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. The location was perfect, close to everything and right near the river. It was...

Excellent hospitality from owners and very clean and comfortable en-suite accomodation with a window opening overlooking the Arno river. Nicoletta and Mauritio were extremely helpful hosts and did everything to see to our comfort. Very lucky to get the double bed with en-suite.

Ciao from Iskra & Emil! We stayed several days in Florence at Franz House and we strongly recommend it as a very good place to stay at! It's not far from the central rail station Santa Maria Novella, almost at the river Arno's bank. Cozy, clean, the most comfortable beds we ever slept in, our hosts Maurzio and NIkoleta were...

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.
