Absolutely loved my stay at Novella Italy! Staff were lovely, room was very nice and spacious! Only a short walk from Santa Maria station and centre of Florence. The only thing I would change would be some form of air conditioner or fan as the room was very hot, otherwise very enjoyable!


Very good location, 5-10 minute walk from Firenze SMN train station. We were very pleased with the room, spacious and homely. The only issue was the lack of fan and aircon, especially hot in summer. We could open the window for ventilation but there were mosquitoes flying in. Expect a basic breakfast with juice, coffee/tea with packets of muffins and biscuits. Overall a pleasant stay, but you might want to bring your own portable fan :)

Found hostel clean, nice to have a private room for cheap, bathrooms fine. No washing machine. Staff couldn't speak English well and spoke very loudly in the morning which woke you up too early. One night there was some sort of argument with the owners family which made me feel unwelcome and uncomfortable. Quite unprofessional.


10-15 minutes walk from main train station. Walking distance from downtown. The room was clean and spacious so was the bathroom. Staff was really nice and polite. They give you towels shampoo and soap. It is definitively good value for your money. Very recomended


Easy to find and short walk from main train station. Rooms were huge and clean, be was very comfy. However the light in our room didn't work and curtains were see through. Bathrooms were a bit old and the shower wasn't great but had lots of warm water
