Il Guelfo Bianco, hotel in the centre of Florence, is the ideal location for those wanting to stay in the heart of the city, few steps away from the main tourist attractions, but also in a strategic location for all the transportation ways leading to the town.

Surrounded by some of the major Florentine landmarks, such as the Dome, Galleria dell’Accademia, Palazzo Medici Riccardi, the Medici Chapels and the San Lorenzo Market, to name a few, Hotel Il Guelfo Bianco consents you to easily move by foot around the city. to comfortably explore the most famous tourist sites of the area.

But an accommodation in the centre of Florence doesn’t only mean to breathe history and art as you go out of your room, it also means being able to easily arrive there walking from the central train station of Santa Maria Novella, only 10 minutes away!

And if you don’t like walking, or if you have many suitcases with you, there are always the classic taxis, ready to save you. From the train station to the hotel, a ride will cost you around 12 euros, taking approximately 10 minutes time, depending on traffic. If you are arriving from the airport instead, the taxi rate will be fixed at 25 euros, plus 1 euro per suitcase, taking up to 25 minutes with regular traffic.

In the case you are planning to arrive with your private car, don’t worry, you can anyway reach the hotel in the centre of Florence, even if it is a limited traffic zone.
