Via Del Giglio 5, Santa Maria Novella, 50123 Florence, Italy – Excellent location – show map
Excellent location – rated 9.4/10! (score from 1609 reviews)
Rated by guests after their stay at Hotel Nizza.
The hotel is situated where once the first medieval city walls were built between 1173 and 1175. In 1284 the municipality decided to move the existing walls further from the centre, building much bigger ones which enclosed the new inhabited areas which overflowed outside the old walls. Works finished in 1333 and the old walls were knocked down. In there place new buildings grew with the stones from the walls and among these was the building where Hotel Nizza now is. Further research in still in course but it is certain that in 1800 several monks amongst which the renowned Bernardino Bambi, lived here. In our breakfast room you can see an engraved marble stone found during recent restoration, which testimonies to the fact. It is to be presumed that hospitality has always been the primary function for this building since this land outside the city walls was probably property of the Santa Maria Novella church. The building became what we consider in modern times "a hotel" in 1911. This has been confirmed by Florence's Chamber of Commerce in a document of 1924 found recently among old papers in an attic.
