The room was fairly basic with no ameneties but that's expected from a budget place, so nothing bad there. The location is great with many restaurants, bars, bakeries, etc. within 50 meters. Central station and bus stops are also less than 5 minutes walk away....More

The staff is really friendly,the room is big and clean, with a balcony and a great view, wi-fi in the room, we totally enjoy the night here, the location is good, 5 mins from the Firenze train station and to the city.
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.
