The hotel was quite atmospheric and reasonably comfortable. The room was a decent size, the furniture was a little worn, but clean and fresh painted walls. It was very hot whilst we stayed but the air-con did keep the room comfortable whilst being slightly noisy. I would have liked a slightly higher level floor room guessing it might have a... More

We stayed as family of 4 in quad room 108, 1st floor back of hotel. The room was spacious enough for our short stay however a few minor items detracted from our stay. The aircon only just coped with the hot days and the room had no direct sun on it so the street side rooms must have been hot.... More

Stayed in this hotel during July. The location was perfect, an 8 minute walk from Santa Maria Novella station. The rooms are old, we asked for 1 king bed but got 2 singles aligned side by side. The air conditioning in the room was very bad. Had to call the reception many times but without luck. The wifi was so... More

Stayed in this hotel several times and never disapoints. Great location to central market, nice breakfast and very accomodating staff. Rooms are clean and great for travelers. The elevator is small like most European hotels, so plan ahead or take the steps (hard with luggage!). Would go back again and again.

Not initially impressed but by the time our stay was over, came to appreciate its finer points. Great location, staff, and cleanliness. I've had better breakfasts but was good enough. Great recommendations were given for restaurants and train station was short walk away. A reasonable and comfortable experience.

We stayed here as a family of 4 and found the room comfortable and clean. The location was good , within walking distance of shopping, cafes, supermarkets and nearby laundromat. Staff very friendly and helpful.

Location is close to major sight seeing places and short walking distance from main train station. Breakfast is good and room is clean. Only negative point was that internet was very slow and on the second night during our stay, there were no internet at all.

Very poor quality of sleep, bad mattres condition, noisy room coming from the constant traffic. This hotel should be avoided if possible, location and proximity to the main city center is the only asse.

Like most hotels in florence it was handy to everything including the station, restaurants, markets etc. Basic accommodation but had everything you would require for the cost. Reception staff were very helpful. Basically if you want more plush surroundings then you have to be prepared to pay more.

It's in a rundown section of the city. The rooms (our room, anyway) are small and cramped. We had a problem with the toilet that was not fixed. I asked, reasonably so, for fresh bath towels on our second day and was snootily told "5 star hotels change the towels every day, we do it every second day." You can't... 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.
