Great little B&B. We had a few issues spotting it at first and then getting in, but was worth it! Room are very cool, quirky and comfortable. Hosts we warm and friendly and gave us a map and highlighted where we should go and tips. Nice easy walking distance from the train station. Would recommend to others!

Im not one to write a complaint, but after our terrible experience I feel as though I should share. Firstly our arrival.. no communication between the hotel and guests. We booked the hotel through booking.com and received no information from the hotel. The hotel is inside a large building and guests need a code to get in, after buzzing the... More

We had a 3 night stay here in May 2015. Despite the initial hiccups (we had trouble finding the building, and then Agoda screwed up our reservation), I must say we had a pretty good stay. The whole B&B is decked out in a very attractive quirky design which makes you feel glad to return at the end of the... More

Funky little B&B within walking distance to the train station. We arrived late but had emailed the hotel and were given the access code to the building and told where to find the keys. Upon entering our room we were delighted to find that it was exactly like the pictures we had seen online. The bed was super comfortable and... More

The rooms were spacious, by European standards. But finding the place, if you blink you will miss it. The host was fantastic and so very helpful.

Overall a good accomodation experience, specially compared with staying in Florence's overpriced and needing renovation hotels... If you are driving it is really tough to park, but the B&B has a parking agreement with a parking close by. Check in first before parking.

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.

“When you go out the door, go to the right and in the middle of the next block there is a fruit and vegetable store that will sell a 1.5 Liter of water for only 1 euro - cheapest we found in all of Europe and the little old couple is so nice!”
