The hotel is located very close to the train station which was a huge plus! There are restaurants and fast food places to grab a bite to eat nearby as well. It is also close to a 99 cent store and a supermarket, so you can stock up on liquids. We were excited that the hotel is also near not... More

Location is very good, close to the main railway station and within walking distance from downtown. The rate quality/price is very good (please consider you are in Florence). Staff is extremely gentle, rooms are hold fashion but good, not noisy. Breakfast good enough. Advisable for a 3-star level

A good clean hotel on the second floor of building situated hardly a minute away from the Railway station. The lovely old but efficiently working elevator brought back pleasant childhood memories.

We had 2 nights here, 16th & 17th May 2015. So convenient to the S.M.N. Railway Station and Mirko and his mother, Anna, made our Mother and Daughter stay very enjoyable. Lovely room and very good value.

It's a good hotel on the second floor with an elevator and a stones throw away from the train station but in a quiet clean street. The staff is friendly and they have all the amenities we needed. The duomo is just a 10 minute walk. The hotel is nice and clean and the room and bathroom was spacious enough... More

Really friendly, helpful staff that showed us how to get to all the main places we should see in our couple of days in Florence. Room was very clean and comfortable with good air con for a good nights sleep as the weather was roasting! Considering what we paid, great value, and so close to the centre of the city,... More

Lovely friendly hotel. Spacious room that fits a double bed and 2 singles for the kids. It even has a little balcony. Bathroom is very modern and clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful, they even printed out my museum tickets on their printer. Excellent location too for the train station and the key sights in the city.

For me it was first time to see many hotels in a single building, but this is very normal in Italy. Nostalgic feeling when you enter the lift (Very Old but properly working) Very personalized service within Hotel, even with almost no staff (Common in Italy) they want to address all your requirements and succeed also. Very close to Florence... More

The hotel itself is really nice with comfortable beds and bathrooms. The only problem is that once you arrive there you realise that it's in a building with two other hotels and an elevator to all floors. But once inside the scene changes 360 and you can start to relax.

Stayed 4 nights with family in a room arranged for 5. Given the lack of family hotels in Italy in general, that was a good deal. The room was, I think, originally for 3, and they added 2 cots for the kids. It got a little cramped, but still we had a nice rest all together. The location is great... 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.
