This is very beautifully kept hotel. It is not new and modern looking, but everything is graceful and charming. The room was lovely with a soft bed, jacuzzi tub, and a good amount of space. Although I had a room that was facing the piazza,...More
Our room wasn't ready when we arrived. However, they offered us one of the rooms that comprised the Presidential Suite for a small upgrade charge of 20 euros. This room was very large with a balcony overlooking the square. We were very pleased with this...More

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.
