We stayed at Franz House with my husband in October for 3 days (wedding anniversary trip). We already miss that place. Room was very cozy, breakfast big and delicious (bacon&cheese toast, omlette, croissants, coffee, juice and much more), location is the best ever! Nicolette and Mauricio are very helpfull and friendly. I would recommend that place to everyone!

This is an excellent place for the budget traveller. Clean rooms, spotless bathrooms, breakfast including croissant, ham/cheese sandwich, yoghurt, fruit, coffee/tea/cocoa. The Westin is around the corner - location is safe and on the perimeter of central. 15 minutes by foot to the Ufizzi. 10 mins to the train station. Nicoletta recommended excellent (budget) restaurants which became a highlight of...

The hosts were extremely friendly and helpful. We paid a little extra for the breakfast but it was totally worth it considering the cheap rate that we were already paying for the room. On top of the that, the breakfast was delicious and freshly made. The shared washrooms are roomy and clean. Our private double room was decent, a little...

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.
