the Hotel Santa Maria Novella Florence, situated in the piazza of the same name and among the most central and convenient of all of the city's hotels. The hotel itself, beautifully transformed in the 1940's, is a living testament to the culture, history and art of the renaissance capital of Italy.

Chronologically the first great Basilica in Florence, Santa Maria Novella can be viewed from several of our suites, providing an eclectic backdrop for a relaxing and historically satisfying sojourn in the Tuscan Capital.


Address: Piazza di Santa Maria Novella, 1, 50123 Firenze Florence, Italy Florence, Italy

Florence is a city steeped in history, and there is no finer example than the spectacular Duomo. Situated just 100 meters from the Hotel Santa Maria Novella Florence, Brunelleschi's world-famous dome crowns the enormous and decorative Santa Maria del Fiore - bigger than the Capitol building in Washington, the Pantheon in Rome and, perhaps surprisingly, St. Peters Basilica in Rome - as the cathedral sits proudly as the centrepiece of the city. Just opposite stands the Baptistery, who's intricately carved bronze doors were christened by Michelangelo himself as ''the Gates of Paradise''.

Being located in the heart of the historic centre, Hotel Santa Maria Novella Florence offers easy access to all of the city's historical landmarks. A pleasant five minute stroll brings you to the most famous of all of the city's museums, the Galleria degli Uffizi. One of the oldest and most famous art collections in the world, the Uffizi Gallery holds priceless works by Giotto, Da Vinci, Botticelli, Michelangelo, Raphael, Titian and Caravaggio to name but a few.


Every room has been conceived as unique in style and taste, distinguished by delicate wall decorations and wood floors, and furnished with period consoles, night tables and desks, in unison with magnificent poster beds draped with precious fabrics and crowned with canopies of wood. The bathroom of each room is the result of a talented work in polychrome marble.
