Located in the heart of historic B & B House is a hostel, b & b’s in Florence near the station of Santa Maria Novella, just a few minutes walk away. BBH Hostel is the ideal solution to enjoy the historic center of Florence in a young and nice place. From the BBH you can reach the most popular tourist destinations, the most popular taverns with typical Florentine dishes and younger alternative at Oltrarno (which is in the other side of the river Arno – traditionally a more affordable and popular place for young people). In addition, the streets around us are full of small shops for shopping and alternate with the most famous fashion streets.
Both coming from North or South, the exit is Firenze-Signa (A1): follow to the city center and the signs to Ponte alla Vittoria, cross the river and turn right to Lungarno Vespucci. Now you can look for parking (for more information www.firenzeparcheggi.it ), but beware of the toll that bounds the Z.T.L. to avoid fines. Notice for people coming by car.
The historic center of Florence is surrounded by cameras placed at access points to restrict the transit of ZTL (restricted traffic zone) inside for unauthorized vehicles: access and parking in the city center is restricted to residents only, it is allow the access for tourists only for the achievement of the garage. Know that once you have gone under the cameras, you have half an hour to park in a garage that will report the license plate of your car as authorized so to avoid a fine.
Near us you will find many garage both in Via dei Fossi, both in Borgognissanti. We recommend a garage in Via Palazzuolo International, being just 50 meters from us and we invite you to visit their website or contact them directly for more information or to book your car online.
BBH is a b & b in Florence near the railway station of S. Maria Novella, which is just 5 minutes walk. Leaving the station to the left side, you’ll see the back of the tower of the Church of Santa Maria Novella. Reach it across the street (in front of you is a tourist-office) by going left along the walls of the Church to go into Via degli Avelli. You will arrive in Piazza Santa Maria Novella, cross to the arcade and see in front of you the Alinari Museum of Photography. Go right to Via della SCALA and the first street you cross is VIA DEL PORCELLANA , we are at number 14 black. (remember BLACK colour – because the red ones are generally shops).
