Me and my girlfriend came to Florence to celebrate our joint 30th B-day. The hotel was recommended to us by my parents who had stayed there the year prior. I have to say that it exceeded my expectations. First of all, upon arriving we found out that they had upgraded our room and the room we recevied was so beautiful!... More

Loved our stay here - stayed in a beautifully designed large room ideal for us with our toddler. Dinner was wonderful as well with the organic produce (particularly impressed with the staff at reception ensuring we somehow got a table at the restaurant despite the waiters initially saying they were fully booked). Valet packing service was excellent value as well.

I've been this hotel a month ago for a business as per recommendation from info desk in the airport. Since the location and breakfast were so nice, I chose this hotel once again for the vacation with my wife. Different from previous visit, a lower level standard room was disappointed. Whatever I spent more than my plan to upgrade, it... More

We stayed for only 2 nights but wish we had stayed longer. We thought our hotel room was beautiful with high ceiling and divider between kids beds and ours for a little privacy. Very clean and convenient location - 5 min walk to see David as well as city center. Typical continental breakfast that was good and free. Staff very... More

The staff was helpful. The room was spotlessly clean. The decor was fresh and tasteful. The location is excellent. We were given room 121, which is away from the street and has a window on a pleasant courtyard. There is a balcony on this floor, separate from any room, that overlooks a second courtyard. Several times we bought food nearby,... More

Dear GREGORYA, I was sure to get your review as we did have time to talk together about my answers to the guest’s reviews and it has been really helpful for me to realize that many people (as you did) read carefully the hotel’s answers. I am so happy when guests like you ask me to give ,more details about... More

Three-star hotels vary widely, but Il Guelfo Bianco seems to be on the lower end of the scale. Pros: Kind and helpful staff; large room; good AC; great location near major sites; decent breakfast Cons: Room was dowdy, shabby linens, and bathroom needed a scrub, with some mold in the grout and tile.

We enjoyed our stay at Il Guelfo Blanco. Only a 10 minute walk from central station, and close to all the major attractions, bars, restaurants, shopping, etc. The rooms are a bit dated, but it is an old style Italian hotel so not unsurprising. Everything was clean, a/c worked great and the small terrace attached to our room was nice.... 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.
