We wanted a hotel near the train station, since we opted to make this trip via public transportation. We picked this hotel, about two blocks from the train station, because of positive reviews. I was a bit worried when we were given a first floor (our second floor in the States) room facing the street but were assured that the... More

This was a very clean hotel with a delicious breakfast. It is in a really wonderful location if you need a hotel close to the train station. We walked easily to see the David and even to the Arno River easily. I highly recommend this safe and inviting hotel.

Beautiful small hotel, short walk to train station. Beautiful small hotel near San Lorenzo and short walk to the train station. The room was nice and the bathroom was beautiful and functional. The Windows opened, but were double paned to reduce the noise when closed with light blocking curtains. The beds were comfortable and there was a minibar in the... More

We booked this hotel for our last night in Florence because it was within walking distance of the train. We were surprised to find both the hotel and our room were very attractive. Though small, our room was nicely updated. The area near the train station is a hubbub of activity but the hotel is off the main street far... More

So this hotel has a very non-fancy entrance on a small street. But step inside this many century old hotel and the work that went into maintaining and decorating was fantastic. Lots of artwork, statutes and stain glass. The one problem with very old hotels is that the rooms can be small but we were surprised to find a fair... More

Hotel City is in a great location. It is close to the train station, the San Lorenzo Market and all of the important sites in downtown Florence. We are very pleased with the staff and the hotel room. Make no mistake, this is an old place. However, it is well-maintained, exceptionally clean, has great stonework trim and details, and is... More

What a great little hotel. Quiet, clean and in a great location for walking everywhere in Florence. The staff was welcoming and helpful, breakfast was lovely with fresh fruit and wonderful croissants. The cappuccino at breakfast was the best I had in Italy. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. We stayed in 4 other hotels on this trip and... More

I selected this hotel based on other reviews and it was perfect. It's a good quality 3 star hotel, very clean and within walking distance to all sites as well as a quick walk to the train station. Breakfast was surprisingly good for an Italian hotel, much better than expected. They gave me a huge room on the top floor... More

Highly recommend this hotel many restaurants on the left and right sides of the hotel. Many leather bags stalls on the right side of the hotel. Found a few good Chinese restaurants on the right side of the hotel. Room is big and clean. Breakfast is ok. Centrally located so walking distance to many of the must visit sites

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.
