I was transferred here because the hostel I booked was full. Location was north side of Florence, about 10 min walk from the centre, but was in a rougher part. The man who worked there made up a price per night based on nothing really, my room was 40 Euros a night, cheap but still not worth it. The room... More

Save yourself your euros and put it towards a better hotel. We got there and our room was awful- there was poop already in the shared toilet and it wouldn't flush, it smelled terrible and the shower in our room took up so much space! Then the guy at the desk showed us a nicer room for 4 people and... More

Whatever this place is, it is not a hotel as English speakers understand that word. The general service and facilities here are more akin to what you might expect at a backpackers hostel or campsite. If you have ever travelled in Morocco and stayed in one of the lower-end hotels or pensiones that you find in the old medinas, you... More

I booked a room there, one month in advance for the beginning of July which is a peak for tourism in Italy. It is one of the cheapest place to stay in and the quality is rather good. There are many services available : daily cleaning, free wi-fi, large tv, private or shared bathroom, etc. I think you can also ask... More

We booked another B&B (Ninna Nanna) for 3 nights, but the owner was not home when we arrived. She asked us to wait but it turned out that she actually just pushed us to 'Hotel' Souvenir without showing up at all. We were led to hotel souvenir without any notification that we would no longer stay in the place we... More

I'm a solo backpacker that was staying around the corner at PlusFlorence ..after 3 nights couldn't extend my stay! Due to high density of bookings...And in comes Hotel Souvenir which saves the day and for a reasonable price at that! As a backpacker sometimes you need those nights where you get some peace and quiet and good rest every once... More

Booked a double bed room with own bathroom + good location + warm water in the shower - hasn't accepted my credit card, wanted cash. So the original booking from booking.com was canceled and therefore we can't rate the hotel on booking.com - shabby room and furnitures - "bathroom" only about 1.3x1.3m², so there is no real shower in it,...

Hotel Souvenir exceeded our expectations! Hotel owner speaks English so it was easy to communicate with him. Room price for us was really low (32 euro/night) and our spacious room had big clean bathroom, hair-dryer, clean towels, microwave, TV, fridge, big closet and it was really nice decorated. The first night we arrived, owner gave us a nice Tuscan wine!... More

Me and my boyfriend came to Florence at 23:00 and had no place to stay. We found Hotel Souvenir by luck on booking.com webside. Even though check-in was until 19.30 the owner was so nice to us, he let us in and offered us a double room with a private bathroom only for 70 euros for 2 nights for 2... 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.
