We stayed at the Montebello Splendid for 5 days as an anniversery treat and had a truly lovely time. We were upgraded on arrival and given a room with a terrace and a jacuzzi bath as extras. The room service was prompt and professional, indeed all the staff were excellent. The restaurant was intimate, food was as would be expected...

The Montebello Splendid is a fabulous hotel within a few minutes walk of the sights of Florence. From the moment we arrived, we were looked after by the friendly staff. The room we stayed in was absolutely gorgeous and the breakfast (which is included in the price) was very nice. I will definitely return to Florence and the Montebello.

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.
