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.

    Nice home base for seeing Florence

    It was a comfortable place to stay at a reasonable price for a three night trip to Florence as a solo traveler. The staff was very helpful and the breakfast was good despite having to manage COVID protocols.

    Fantastic economical hotel, no disapointment...

    This hotel was an excellent experience. Wonderful service from all the employees, lovely breaskfast in the hotel's coffee shop next door and quick service were the norm. The room showed some very minor wear, but the bathrooms were superior (great shower). Near the train station and not far from the greatest things in Florence. No matter what number the multiple choice smiley faces I chose is, this place is top notch in my book.

    Lovely weekend!

    Hotel Boccaccio is in an ideal location for exploring Florence and we were given lots of useful information about the city from Ronnie who checked us in. He was very welcoming and helpful. The room itself was clean and comfortable. We were located street side which gives way to the usual sounds of hustle and bustle, but nothing too disturbing. Breakfast was very well managed (you fill in an order form the day before with your preferred time) and again, the staff there were very welcoming and friendly. We would definitely stay here again.

    Nice, friendly but tiny room.

    Staff, particularly, Ellis, was great. Very helpful. Room was tiny and bathroom even smaller. Breakfast was somewhat limited.

    Great location and even greater services! I had a late check in and Elis at the front desk was most welcoming and friendly. I felt like I was visiting a friend! I had a single room and it was smallish as expected but it was extremely clean, comfortable and well appointed. Bed was comfortable, bathroom clean and shower pressure was great. Thankfully the air conditioning worked perfectly as outside temperature was hot! Elis gave excellent restaurant recommendation and I had a very delicious Tuscan dinner! The hotel generously held my luggage for 12hours after I checked out and it was very much appreciated. Hotel Boccaccio has it all - great location, clean & comfortable room and most importantly, excellent services by Elis! I will stay here again when I return to Florence in the future! Thanks Elis!
