    Here are the good bits…air conditioning excellent; room simple but clean; fantastic location – one street from main train station; it has an old but reliable lift. Here is the not-so-good stuff….service was minimal at best, surly at worst; bathrooms quickly became dirty, even after they were cleaned (no hand/floor towels, so any water on the floors quickly turned to...

    I stayed there for 6 nights with my boyfriend. I can honestly say that I have never had such a relaxing, wonderful and unforgettable stay like this one! The hotel was really cozy and comfortable, so we extended our stay there (we had booked only two nights). The amazing staff, above all Mr. Christian, made me feel incredible welcome and... More

    Stayed at Bijou for 8nights and the stay was beyond expectation. We were upgraded to the Junior suite on the top floor. The room was spacious, has a elegant interior decor and the highlight was the huge terrace outside our room. We could view the whole Forte dei Marmi area and the mountains. Needless to say the sunset and sunrise... More

    This hotel was a good value. It was close to the train station (Santa Maria Novella) and only a fifteen minute walk to the Duomo. Unfortunately, there was no free breakfast. Also there were mosquitoes everywhere when we went in June. Our air conditioning barely worked. We expected a private bathroom, but had to share one. Not the end of... More

    I've read many bad reviews about this place. Yes it's not amazing nor has it fantastic facilities but think about how much you pay for the room! The room was clean, the staff were friendly/helpful and the location was brilliant. Apart from our booking detailing a double bed and we got 2 single beds and it being quite loud in... More

    We stayed there for 3 nights and we are very satisfied with the Hotel Bijou. The location is absolutely great, near the central train station and the top tourist attactions in Florence. Everything is at short distance from here. Our room was spacious and well maintained. Breakfast was very good and all the hotel staff from the front desk officers... More

    The Bijou hotel is a nice small hotel, great for travellers on a budget. From the roof terrace you have a lovely view of the city, and the Ponte Vecchio and the old city centre is at an acceptable walking distance. The staff is accomodating and service-minded.

    Hotel Bijou had excellent facilities, clean rooms, warm sheets and friendly staff. The hotel did not smell bad, and was warm as inviting.. I left an item behind and they mailed it back to me for free.

    I really liked this hotel! It is centrally located and a very easy and short walk from the main train station. The hotel is located behind McDonald and next to a Chinese Restaurant, but the area is safe. Room was cozy and a little old fashioned, but it had good WIFI, A/C and delicious breakfast. The location was very quiet... 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.
