You never know what you're going to get when you arrive at a hotel that seems underpriced for the location, but in this case my wife and I were very impressed. From our third-floor room we could see the duomo and the campanile, and the hotel was no more than a few minutes walk to the train station, the duomo,... More

Right near the Medici Cappelli, a couple of minutes walk from the Duomo, the station, yet very quiet. We had a room with a private bathroom and would pay for that definitely. The staff were super helpful and made us feel very welcome. Clean with everything we needed. Thank you!

A stay at Hotel Lorena is a great value stay within the center of Florence. The hotel location is ideal with its close proximity to the train station and attractions surrounding the Duomo. The room we booked was very spacious (bathroom included) and had great air conditioning during the hot Florence summer. Breakfast for 5euro a person was not of... More

This hotel is only about 5 minutes walk from the train station, down quaint cobblestones. It is right on a corner and it in the perfect location for you to go anywhere in Florence- most in less than 10 minutes. From here you can easily walk to the Duomo, art museums and just about anyplace you'd like. There are great... More

Great location right in the heart of Florence! It's a 5-10 minute walk to the train station, so very easy to manage with your luggage. It is smack dab next to the Medici Chapels and a 5 minute walk to the Duomo. The San Lorenzo markets are a 3 minute walk and it took us about 10-15 to get everywhere... More

I booked a room at the Lorena for €30 and was a little nervous about what to expect. However I was absolutely bowled-over by how fabulous the hotel actually is. It is around about 5 minutes walking from the main railway station and is located opposite the medici chapel and san Lorenzo church in a very vibrant part of town.... More

We stayed for two nights in two rooms as a family. We were disappointed as when we checked in we were told that we would have to change rooms for our double room after the first night. A real hassle when you are sightseeing all day. We had to rush around after the first night and pack our stuff then... More

Good evening! we are sorry of your review. Unfortunately, in a hotel the unexpected can happen as you know, and the moved from a room to another one is one of these. Will have noticed that the night before we assigned you a triple room that was booked the next day, otherwise we would not have bothered you, of course!!... More

The Hotel Lorena is across the road from the Medici Chapel so a great landmark when you get lost and also very central to most of the churches and museums. There is a lift but it starts from reception on the first floor. My room was perfect for my needs, clean, comfortable and a view. The room has external shutters,... More

Very good accommodations despite it does not have elevators. It was allowed to us set early check in. The hotel probably is owned by a family and it brings an special environment.... like your house. Thanks.
