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

This is a so-called 3-star hotel which has seen better days! Almost no hot water in the first room moved to another room for the next two nights although now there was hot water the shower head in bath resulted in flooding of the floor. Also no plug that retained water in bath! Wifi was slow and almost unusable! Overall... More

When I arrived at the hotel, I was told that there had been a mistake and they needed me to stay in their sister hotel - Hotel Cimabue - around the corner for the first night of my 3 night visit. I had booked months earlier so was not happy at all. Cimabue was clean and functional, but not as... More

My wife and I stayed in Hotel Malaspina for 6 nights in April 2015. To begin with- the positives: the location is very good, the most famous landmarks in Florence are within 25 mins walking distance- some are even 10 mins distance. The cleaning staff are very pleasant every time we met them and they seem to do a good... More

Good hotel for the value. 10 walking minutes away from the cathedral. Breakfast is good too with a rich variety for a hotel in this size. The only drawback was that the room smelled a bit of vinegar (probably from the cleansing agent).

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.
