Disappointing room, location &helpful service good
A good location and very helpful service. We were disappointed in the "Superior Triple Room" with city views however. The website shows a room bathed in light, while the reality is that it was quite dark with windows onto the shaded narrow street. The "bathroom" is the size of a cupboard with a toilet and washbasin. The shower is separate. It did the job but all in all, the marketing does not portray the reality.

Beautiful room, very clean and relaxing. Smooth transition checking in and checking out. It’s also very close to the train station! Only stayed in Florence one night, but Novella House made me wish I stayed longer!
Joy, us1 night family trip
Very good 8,0
Room was great, staff very friendly and helpful. Bed not real comfortable, almost felt like it was domed in the middle. Neighborhood marginal, with a halfway house across the street, and several shady looking people hanging around, smoking heavily, strange smells, dirty streets. Always felt like we had to keep looking over our shoulders when we walked in and out of there.

Great place to stay in Florence
Our train was delayed, so we arrived later than expected. However, we were greeted warmly and shown to our apartment a few blocks away from where we checked in. The old apartment looked recently renovated. It was modern, clean, comfortable, and in a great location for seeing historic Florence. It had a nice kitchen, which was fully equipped, small balcony, and stairs to climb to the third floor. We were able to store our luggage after check-out.

Lovely stay, except for breakfast
The room itself was lovely. It would have been helpful to know at booking that the 'included breakfast' is actually just packaged, processed food - nothing hot or homemade.

We had such a wonderful stay at Novella House, I only wish that we stayed longer!! I came here with my family of 7 people. The staff is extremely well accommodating and helpful. They go out of their way to help their customers, always with a smile on their faces! For instance, they immediately helped me find a suitcase shop to buy a suitcase when mine broke and called us taxis whenever we needed. They even kept are luggage after our check out for free so we could sightsee. They are on site until 7 pm, sometimes even later. Really a wonderful location, just a few steps from beautiful sites and lots of restaurants and markets! The welcome basket was a great touch and very convenient. The apartment itself was beautiful and even though it is decorated in an older historic style, everything was extremely clean and it had all modern amenities. Thank you Francesco and Alessia for a wonderful Florence experience!!
