We stayed at the 4 star Hotel L’Orologio in Piazza Santa Maria Novella. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone, in fact we’d say it’s one of the most luxurious hotels we’ve ever stayed in! We had a Superior room and it was absolutely lovely – modern, tasteful furnishings and drapes and a fantastic marble bathroom which made the stand-alone bath a real centrepiece. The location is brilliant too, just a 5 minute walk from the train station and on the doorstep of all the major sights of Florence. Breakfast is in an upstairs room which overlooks the piazza and we thought the quality of the food was very good. In short, whilst it might not be the cheapest place to stay in Florence, it’s a great hotel and we thought it was worth every penny.

On entering our room, there was a short corridor followed by a seating area with a large sofa piles high with cusions. To the left was the bedroom, with flat screen tv on the wall and large wardrobes. There was also a mini bar. If you continued striaght on from the seating area, you’d come to the bathroom, which we loved!
The communal areas of the hotel were loveley too. There are clocks and pictures of clocks everywhere! Downstairs there was reception, a seating area which was surrounded by books and then a bar with an impressive illuminated water feature.
As mentioned above, the location of the hotel was particulalry good as we didn’t have to walk very far with our suitcase from the train station, but all the sights of Florence are in easy reach.
