Good location, especially in that it's an easy walk from the train station. Smart & clean but nothing special. The breakfast is just continental & quite early (7-10am) with most seats on a communal table. Staff are friendly & helpful in terms of advice etc. Although it's a good, handy location it's not the nicest of areas

We had three nice nights at this hotel. The first night we checked in late and met Joni <3 behind the desk. He spent ten minutes showing us a map of Florence, pointing out different spots and things to see and do. Very friendly and very informative. We also really enjoyed the rest of the staff we met during our... More

The hotel is in an old building as most of the hotels in Florence but we warned you'll have to climb 3 flights of stairs to get up to the rooms (not that big of a deal). The hotel staff was very helpful with all the questions I had especially when trying to go to different places, they would look... More

The rooms were average size and clean, the breakfast was a little better than average and the service was very good! People in this hotel were very nice and the owner will keep your luggage in case you arrive early or leave late and you want to wander around town. It is about 6 to 7 blocks from Novella train...

First,the location of this hotel was excellent. We were able to walk to this hotel from the train station, and it is around the corner from the market and the Duomo. Second, the room was spacious and well air-conditioned. Third, the breakfast was terrific. Fourth, free wifi. But the best part of this hotel was the staff. They were so... More

The positives: The room was well sized, easy to get to from the train station, walking distance to everything we wanted to see, and when my plane was delayed and I had to arrive a day late, when I emailed, they very kindly held my room for me and didn't cancel my reservation. Some of the front desk staff is... More

I have stayed in the Hotel Kursaal Ausonia 3 times and each time has just been wonderful. They are most accommodating and hospitable. Paola, the owner, gave my group a tour of beautiful Florence and it was outstanding. I would highly recommend this tour to everyone.

Hotel Kursaal is in a great location with not being too far away from anything and was also by many shops and cafes. The room was much more spacious then I expected and the bed was very comfortable. The hotel had a classic Italian vibe to it so it was nice to have that ambiance being in Italy. The breakfast... 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.
