The two-star Hotel Montreal offers the reliability of a standard hotel with a few charming touches thrown in. It’s well-located on the busy Via della Scala, a few minutes’ walk from Santa Maria Novella and the river.
The Montreal’s 20 guest rooms are furnished with utilitarian, Ikea-esque pieces, while gold-striped wallpaper and rust-and-gold brocades add a touch of elegance. Quads have walls to divide their sleeping areas for extra privacy. All rooms are equipped with air conditioning, satellite television and free Wi-Fi.
Most of the bathrooms are modern, with box showers, hair dryers and shiny white sinks. A few older bathrooms have dated fixtures and Italian-style showers without water dividers.
The hotel mixes baroque style with the building’s remaining medieval details. We loved the walls that showcase original stone and etched blocks. The ground-floor bar, where breakfast is served for an additional fee, has a simple, diner feel—with a baroque couch.
Note: Only some of the rooms are non-smoking, and the smell is sometimes noticeable in non-smoking areas.

About the Montreal neighborhood
Across the street from the train station, the area around Piazza Santa Maria Novella is perhaps the most varied neighborhood in the city. The dingier urban streets leading to the station get a lot of traffic while the other side of the grassy Piazza is quiet. Bordered by the river, the train station and the shopping street Via Tornabuoni, one thing is for sure: once you're here, you're no more than ten-minutes away from anything else.
