Was there last September -- see my comments on why I would not give it a 5 for the pension category Hotel Lorena is in. But all good -- I chose Hotel Lorena because it was recommended in Rick Steves guidebook as low cost lodging with a great location for walking to everything. Overall, was actually quite satisfied -- location... More

The room we stayed and the shared bathroom was clean. The hotel owners made sure that the bathroom,even though shared is clean every now and then which is awesome. The reception is at the first floor of the building,so if you have a heavy baggage,it'll be a bit difficult The hotel owners are very friendly... The breakfast buffet was good.... More

Not a good hotel at all. It has a shared bathroom stairs (not recommended if you have luggage). I couldn't stay there for more than 30 minutes! Horrible experience that I highly don't recommend it. Additionally, it got some rules around not coming back between 2 am to 6 am as they close!! (Just like schools!!)The only good thing about... More

Good morning it is amazing to see how you tell lies and you are fully aware that you are doing this: you booked on booking.com for a room with SHARED bathroom, on the reservation was written clearly, and you booked it with a great price. If you have not read at the time or you have not paid attention is... More

Great location and the front desk was very very accommodating. The bathroom was very clean and price was reasonable. They have two flights of stair to their front desk. Luckily, they helped us with our bags when we checked in but we had to do it ourselves checking out. No worries though. We will still happily recommend this place to... More

I stayed in this hotel during July 2010. Strategic location, near the train station and Santa Maria del Fiore. The rooms are basic fitted with Airconditioning and free WIFI. They have all what you need during your stay. Alot of supermarkets, restaurants and laundry places nearby. Highly recommended

After 2 weeks of traveling in Italy, we had one day/night in Florence before flying back to the US. The Hotel Lorena was just perfect for us. We found the hotel very comfortable, super clean and everyone we interacted with was friendly and helpful. The minute we checked in the man at the desk realized we were leaving extremely early...

My wife and I stayed three nights at the Lorena. The room was immaculately cleaned each day and provided enough space for us. Lorenzo, at the front desk, was incredibly helpful, patient and kind. He spent a lot of time on the phone for us when we needed to confirm a car rental, and gave great directions. The location is... More

Staying in San Lorenzo
