Stayed here for one night in February and due to the decent reviews and cheap price we decided to opt for locanda gallo. The location was very good, 5 mins from duomo and many other sites. Many nice restaurants/bars nearby. However, the place is hard to find, and we took about 15 mins of walking around the same road to... More

It definitely exceeded our expectations in terms of interior design! It was modern, bright and spacious, especially for what you pay for! Our room even had a little mini fridge and plenty of plug sockets. The bathroom (specifically the shower) was amazing! The location is ideal. Quiet at night but within 5 minutes of walking distance to the Duomo and... More

This place is within walking distance from the train station. The location is actually perfect, because it's on a quiet street, but you can easily walk to any place in Florence. I was surprised to find that the room was very large and nicely decorated. Very clean. It exceeded my expectations for sure. Our room even had a small kitchen... More

The location is almost perfect... its close to the Accademia and to the Uffizi gallery and if you walk for 10 mins. more you can reach Ponte Vecchio. San Marco square is 5 mins. walk from the guest house and you can catch a bus or get a taxi from there. Train Station (S. Maria Novella) is about 20 mins.... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Locanda Gallo for 2 nights. Location is good, only some minutes away from the city centre and with plenty of places to eat around (most of them close on the afternoon), including some mini supermarkets. There was nobody there when we arrived (at around 1 pm) and we didn't know we had to inform... More

We spent a week in this place. We informed the owners two days earlier, at what time we’ll arrive. It is easy to find the place, and at the door hangs a nameplate with the name of the guest house. There was a nice lady waiting for us. She spoke english very well. Both owners were very friendly and helpful.... More

Once arriving in Florence, we could not find the plac. as previuisky mentioned in one of the other reviews, 'the area looked very dubious'. once we found the place, there was no name... More

I stayed here with my sister and I found the room to be really nice. Everything is clean and tidy. Rooms are quite large with lots of room for luggage etc, and the bathroom was big too. The decor is sort of old fashioned and quaint, as you would expect an old Italian house to be, and it had a... More

Entrance hall was not inviting upon arrival, could do with a coat of bright paint. When coming back in the dark. The lights were on a timer, and with six lots of stairs to climb after a long day spent in the city, the lights would go off before we reached our floor. Very dangerous. A smell like a drain...

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.
