Review of Santa Maria Novella Hotel Florence
Mar 11, 2013
a true gem
Beautiful little historic hotel. Loved the fabric (silk?) wallpaper in the hallways and the gorgeous breakfast room. Breakfast itself was superb - fruit, pastries, eggs, bacon, and infinite cappuccino. Staff bent over backwards to be friendly and
helpful and all spoke near-perfect English. Reliable, free wifi (though remember that streaming video like netflix / amazon is not available in Europe). Only downsides: my room was tiny, shower leaked (not a huge deal since I wasn't the one who had to mop it up), and water temperature varied wildly and sometimes painfully, depending presumably on water being used elsewhere (I think this is common in Italy).
