5 out of 5
Everything about our stay here was absolutely wonderful. The staff was excellent and kind. The room was the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed in. We stayed in a Junior suite with a view and it was great. I can’t recommend this hotel enough. The location is perfect, 2 blocks from train or tram and a safe pleasant neighborhood away from heavy tourist traffic.

Great location, quality hotel!

Pros: Wonderful staff, excellent breakfast, VERY clean!
Location: Take it all in, the staff will point you in the right directions. There is so much to do or just jump on the train as we did and explore
Spent a week at the Hotel Santa Maria and haven't found anything that I could complain about other than I could not stay longer. Hotel staff were excellent, breakfast was varied and delicious and the location is an easy walk from the train station and close to everything in Florence!
