The hotel is to the south of the railway station: Firenze Santa Maria Novella 5 minutes’ walk. This is a very interesting hotel with excellent interior design. The air conditioner works perfectly. The complimentary breakfast is simple but elegant, very impressive. The dinning room looks quite pretty as if you were in a peaceful countryside. Each time you exit the hotel you must leave your room key to the front desk. This makes you think you didn’t live in a digital world. This feeling prepares you to get ready to explore an old town now.

If arriving by train, it is walking distance from the train station (literally right around the corner). The staff is exceptional. Although breakfast begins at 7:30, we were encouraged to come down before leaving on our day trips. Breakfast was ready, and we were encouraged to sit down and eat when we came down at 6:45.
