Florence Hotels, Hostels, and Other
ABOVE: View of the Duomo from the Grand
Florence has scores of hotels,
and other places to stay, and we haven't attempted to list all of them here. In
the 2- to 5-star categories, we've linked primarily to hotels represented by our booking partner for
Italy, Venere, whose rates are typically lower than the hotels' standard

Many Florence hotels are within walking distance of the Santa Maria
Novella railroad station. Given a choice, we'd opt for a hotel away from the
station square, which has more traffic than charm. Still, if you're staying
only a day or two and have an early departure, being close to the station can be
convenient--and the area isn't dangerous; it just seems out of place in the city
of Medici architecture and Michelangelo's David.
