It is a small neat hotel, reasonably close to all the sites in Florence, as well as Santa Maria Novella Station. The rooms were adequate and air conditioned which was necessary in the July heatwave, but there were no kettles in the rooms and room service was none existant. The minibar fridge did not work and was not very inviting.... More

The good thing about the hotel is the location. By walking or by taking the bus, you can go everywhere touristic. As for the bad things... The staff was kind of rude, talking to me like I was an idiot, the room wasn't ready on time (I had to wait two hours!) and not worth the wait, it was really... More

We were very disappointed with this hotel. They moved us to the hotel next door for the first 2 nights of our 3 night stay as the air conditioning wasn't working. The hotel next door was not good at all. Walls and furniture were dirty and old. When we complained to Malaspina they were rude and said that it wasn't... More

We spent 4 nights at Hotel Malaspina. The location is not a bad walk to the city sights, but it's a decent distance. The hotel room was very clean and I loved the tile flooring as opposed to carpeting. The staff was friendly and helpful to us at all times. The negative is the breakfast- we only ate there the...

The hotel is situated within walking distance of the historic centre of Florence and the main Railway station. The rooms are clean, comfortable and quiet and the bathrooms are well appointed. The breakfast is a fairly average continental breakfast. The downside to our stay was that the TV didn't work - despite reporting this twice it was never even looked... More

Last year we stayed at this hotel and we were really satisfied yet this year many things turned out to from positive to horrible! I stayed from 21st of July till the 25th of July. I requested a room on a higher floor and was given room 304. We were very pleased to see that this was an identical room... More

Lovely looking 3 star hotel. Located within walking distance from train station and tourist attractions. Rooms are clean and spacious. Breakfasts are reasonably good. Stall was friendly as well. We did not use any public transport as you are centrally located. All attractions are a 15 minute walk from hotel where you can tour and eat in comfort. Will recommend... More

I would not recommend staying in this hotel. The service at both the reception and the breakfast was poor and at times could be described as rude. The quality of the breakfast was average at best. The rooms were not particularly clean, and the one I stayed in was clearly an ex or current smoking room and smelt as such.... More

The only thing I liked about this hotel was the proximity to the train station (7 min walk). It was not a nice hotel. The walls needed a wipe down and I had to force myself to use the bathroom. There was a weird smell in the room, sort of like anti-tobacco spray, and we could not open the window... More

We arrived and thought the lobby was so charming. That turned out to be our last positive impression.The man at the front desk was not very friendly. Our room was small which was fine but the window was so high we needed to stand on a chair to look out or be 7 feet tall. Very claustrophobic feeling. But worse... 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.
