This hotel is great for those wanting a conveniently located hotel but want to keep to a budget. It is connected to the larger C-Hotel Ambasciadore and shares the bar, restaurant and breakfast facilities. Rooms are nice & clean and the staff are pleasant
Conveniently situated near the market and walking distance from the train station, this hotel is very clean, comfortable and well priced. The staff are particularly friendly and all speak very good English. Breakfast is excellent for Italy, serving a cooked breakfast, included in the price. Bathrooms are specious and well equipped. There is also a lift and TV in the bedroom.
Adjacent to main railway station, so you arrive in town and walk straight in. Florence is remarkably compact, so the hotel also serves as an easily accessible base for most excursions. Rooms are slightly claustrophobic because bathroom is half of the footprint and the other half is barely bigger than a double bed ... but well equipped and spotlessly clean ... not an expensive hotel by any means so it represents good value for money
Every aspect of our stay at the Santa Maria Novella exceeded our expectations. The building is gorgeous inside and out, authentic in every way, staff were flawless, free breakfast is mind blowing, location fantastic.
One caution: Even in January we liked having our windows open to sleep, and this is a problem due to the proximity to the Piazza where people tend to hang out and celebrate until the wee hours. Fortunately the windows are very high quality and when closed the noise is eliminated.
Wonderful location on a quiet & convenient street only 5 minutes walk from SM Novella train station, a few minutes walk to the central pedestrian old city and Central Market, and 8-10 minutes to Duomo square. We walked to ALL tourist sites. Hotel has decent sized rooms with high ceilings, big mirrors, intricate woodwork, and two suitcase stands, but some strange colors. Of our 2 rooms, one was a lovely, calming blue which we loved; the other, a bright pumpkin orange color which ruined the tranquility of the room. Beds were comfortable. Included breakfast was similar to other hotels we stayed at in Italy--scrambled eggs & bacon, breads, pastries, cereals, yogurt, and some fruit. Biggest benefit of this hotel was quiet location out of the crowds but still so convenient.
Hotel Atlantic Palace was great, the staff couldn't be any more attentive and friendly. The room was in good condition, the breakfast had a wide variety, it's great location to all nearby attractions and convient to the train station. Will definitely be staying here next time I'm in Florence.
Perfect location with easy access to all main attractions, without the tourist crowds. Close to the main train station too. The hotel was undergoing renovation, so we got a room upgrade and discount on parking and breakfast. The staff was absolutely fantastic!
Santa Maria Novella Station is the main train station in Florence, with high-speed rail connections to Rome and Bologna. The station is in central Florence, situated near local landmarks like the Arno River, Santa Maria Novella, and Giardini della Fortezza.
