Profile: Santa Maria Novella

Profile: Santa Maria Novella

Santa Maria Novella is across from the railway station that shares its name. Architecture buffs will be enchanted. Classical, Renaissance, Romanesque, and Gothic styles are represented by some of the greatest Italian architects. Wander the vast interior that includes an adjoining cloister and chapterhouse filled with art treasures like frescoes by many of the masters of the Gothic and Renaissance period.

You'll want to pop into the Officina Profumo-Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella, rumored to be the world's oldest pharmacy, which still sells the rosewater distillate the monks produced when the Black Death wiped out 70 percent of Florence's population.

    Awesome place, spacious room.

    Super close to train station and conveniently located. Initially had hard time looking for the place since Google guided me to the side of the building but front desk helped to look for the place. Reception speaks great english and they stored luggage for us after checking out. They have an elevator so if you are traveling with heaby luggage getting it up to the room is not a problem. Overall i enjoyed the stay and will be back to stay here.

    This is a great location near the train station and I would definitely stay at the hotel again. Check in and out were very easy and the two staff members I dealt with were super friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and well decorated, and breakfast was good. I recommend the BandB!

  • 8.0.Very good

    The location is good, very closed to the train station. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was nice and simple. The room was as seen in the picture, but with a few minor flaws (shower door stuck, shower rack was loose so it couldn’t hold anything, the safe box didn’t work). Overall, it’s not bad for a one night stay.

    Great location near the train station. Breakfast was wonderful and the accommodations were just what our family needed. We were able to arrive late to the B&B.

    Everything ok except the windows need to be sound proof. You can hear people from outside when they talking and yelling. Over all good location, clean hotel and good stuff. Last thing internet is poor connection.
