I was there during the Pitti and I spent just 69,00 euros, I think there is no way to find a better place for a better price and for better location, this B&B is just 5 minutes walking from the Fortezza da Basso and 5 minutes from the main train station. I will be back for sure.

We stayed in this clean, modern B&B for 2 nights and were extremely impressed by the friendly service from Matteo, the owner, particularly in assisting with restaurant recommendations and helping us to avoid the city's congestion charge. The furnishing of the room was quite basic but very comfortable and the location is very convenient - only 10 minutes' walk from... More

Clean room with an adequate breakfast. The room was small. The B&B is located about 700 meters from the train station away from old town. The immediate neighbourhood had few amenities. I would consider staying here again but after looking elsewhere.

My sis and I stayed for 3 nights in May, and were quite satisfied with our stay. Given the price we paid, we knew we were not going to be staying in luxury, but the rooms were very clean with new furniture.

Going by the pictures, I half expected a decent room at best. It was the worst experience ever and I will never use their services again even if they pay me! How do I count the ways it was pathetic?

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.
