What do I need to know before I stay at the hotel?

The Hotel Santa Maria Novella takes pride in its heritage and the history of Florence. In keeping with its founding in the nineteenth century, the hotel is decorated in a classical style with a variety of antique furnishings, making every room unique. Wood floors and luxurious upholstery help guests feel at home. Rooms feature courtesy toiletry kits, plush towels, illuminated mirrors, coffee makers, and televisions.

Is the hotel in a good area?

Throughout the hotel, from the smoking lounge to the fitness center to the sauna, you'll find that great care went into the decor that emphasizes timeless style while providing ample comfort. The hotel gets its name from its location on the Piazza Santa Maria Novella. Take advantage of the free wireless Internet, complimentary breakfast, and bar, and meeting rooms available in the hotel, as well as the fitness center and sauna.

What are the Rates Like?

You can get a cheaper room at the Santa Maria Novella than you can at another four-star hotel on the same block, the Grand Hotel Minerva. Granted, it'll be a room without a view and you only save about $30 a night, but it still has bragging rights for the cheapest room. Junior suites are also slightly cheaper at $280 a night compared to the Minerva's at $300 or more.

What's the Bottom Line?

If you want to save a little money but still stay in the center of Florence in four-star luxury, the Hotel Santa Maria Novella is for you. The hotel has classical appeal with its old but well-cared for furnishings and decor.
