The hotel was renovated from Romanesque style building. The architect design is beautiful and comfortable. The room is a large size duplex with full kitchen. I enjoyed visiting Central food Market located 3 minutes from the hotel. And this hotel is also near from Firenze S.M.N. Station, so easy to trip to Toscana area or any place by train. The... More

My mum and I loved this place! She loved having an entire spacious apartment for only the two of us. Some of the previous reviewers mentioned about the wifi, but I suppose they have upgraded the wifi since because the wifi was perfect. I could make video calls back home without any problem at all. The location was great as... More

This is our 2nd stay after 7 years. It was great last time and even better this time. For us, the location is perfect as it is less than 10min walk to the Duomo and less than 5min to the train and bus stations for our many day trips. The mercato central market is only a few min away where... More

We stayed her for 2 nights while in Florence. The studio apartments were clean and orderly and while we weren't there long enough to take advantage of the kitchenette, it seemed convenient. The staff was quite helpful and although the lobby is quite small, there was a nice gathering place in the courtyard, although not so much when it's cold... More

Excellent breakfast. We had more a kind of an appartment, than a hotel room. Not very modern. The location of the hotel is very good, close to the market and restaurants with excellent, traditional italian food.

The place can be a challenge to find as there are no signs outside the premise which is hidden in a courtyard. Property is decent with friendly family owners. The property is clean but old. I...

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.
