Recently visited here with friends. Took a while to find but its a good location. It has the smallest lift ever but can fit one person and one bag at a time. The room was lovely, clean and big. It's a very central location with most things within walking distance. The only downside is the breakfast. We queued at a... More

Me and my wife stayed here for 3 nights and from the moment we arrived we knew that we had made the right choice. Raffaella greated us and talked us through all the highlights of Florence and provided us with a map we were then shown to our room which was clean,spacious and fresh looking.

We were planning a side trip to Pisa during our 3 day stay in Florence so we had to pick a hotel which was close to SMN train station. We decided to stay in this hotel since it was just a minute or two away from the station. There are also restaurants nearby. The hotel staff who received us was... More

Close to train station, supermarket and the old town. The room was clean and neat, and the staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was free but you have to go to the end of the street where a cafe provided the food and drinks.

One of those lucky finds since we love traveling by trains. Less than 5min to/from SMN train station. In a neighborhood with a lot of restaurants. The rooms were very modern and clean.

I was pleasantly surprised to find that this hotel was a mere two-minute walk from the train station. While the streets below were a little noisy, the rooms are well-insulated with a good window and pull-down shutter arrangement. The lovely lady who checked us in could not have been nicer and gave us wonderful recommendations for meals and sightseeing. This... More

Staying in San Lorenzo

Neighborhood Profile
San Lorenzo
San Lorenzo’s lively merchants shout out from behind stalls with an array of products in one of the most traditional neighborhoods in Florence. Different ethnic groups join together in the large outdoor market of San Lorenzo and in the Central Market, a vast multi-floored building. Visitors are bound to fall in love with this area and in particular, with its variety of food, especially those focusing on Florentine dishes as well as international selections. Nobody leaves San Lorenzo without a shopping bag in hand or with an empty stomach.
