We stayed here for 6 nights whilst on holiday in Firenze. The location is excellent, close to S. Maria Novella Station and to the main attractions. We chose an economy double room and it was even better than expected: the bathroom was fairly big and we had a cute private terrace overlooking the courtyard. The room was clean and tidy,... More

Hotel Porta Faenza was one of the easiest hotels to find from the train station, Firenze S.M.N. It is close (about a 7 minute walk), and centrally located (for what we were looking for.). It has a great historical, yet updated feel to the rooms, very spacious; and we were able a reserve a bottle of champagne for our room... More

Hotel is perfectly located for walking everywhere in Florence. There are many restaurants on the same street. It is close to the market. Room is good size, very nice breakfast buffet, free wifi. There is a parking garage very close by with easy access in/out of the city.

Great located, only 7 minutes from the duomo. Beautiful street, quiet enough. People at the reception were nice, helped us getting around. Breakfast was more than expected! Also we used the parking service which was comfortable.

This is a very clean and spacious place and the rooms are pretty modern. The breakfast was not very good, but the location is great (walking distance to train station with your luggage) and they have a free storage locker for luggage which helps a lot. I would certainly stay here again, although I would eat breakfast out next time.

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.
