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.

I and my husband stayed at Hotel Lorena in May 2014. I have to admit at first I was a little skeptical about all the reviews stating how good it was, but when we arrived I was pleasantly surprised. I loved it here. For the price this is most definitely the best value. The elderly man and his wife that... More

It's always nerve-racking booking a hotel in a faraway location. You always worry that it might just not live up to your expectations. My new husband and I wanted an affordable, very central florence hotel that above all was friendly and clean. Hotel Lorena went above and beyond our expectations. The location is super central- 3 minutes walk from the... More
