My friends and I stayed here during December 2015. The place was very nice, with an excellent breakfast and a friendly staff. However on our last day our pleasant experience had a poor ending when two pieces of our luggage were stolen. We had left them that day in the lobby, where we were assured they'd be safe while we...

Stayed as a solo traveler in a private room on ground floor, right near breakfast room and reception. Had fantastic/perfect internet. Hostel, room and bathrooms very clean, desk staff friendly and helpful, went out of their way to help me call my bank when my card suddenly stopped working! Best breakfast in any hostel for my 7 week trip, though... More

Hotel Mia Cara is a very nice little hotel that is located really close to the station. Even though it is close to the station (10 min walk with bags) it is quiet. The front desk is open 24 hours and they are one of the few places where I saw a wheel chair lift. The rooms are clean and... More

we actually booked for Hostel Archi Rossi, but upon arriving at the hostel we were forwarded to hotel Mia Cara - just a couple of steps away. At first we were surprised that we will be staying at a different hotel but then we were glad that they did. The room was very nice. The best hotel we have stayed... More

Less than a 5 min. walk from the train station (Termini) this hotel is super convenient and a good price for rather expensive Florence. There's a lovely garden courtyard with shady seating for breakfast or an afternoon lull. Rooms are small but clean and pretty; ours had a working computer and big windows opening to the garden. Reception was friendly... 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.
