My family and I stayed at Residence La Contessina in June. It is located within walking distance of all of Florence's wonders-the Duomo, the Arno, all of the museums, etc. The room was similar to an apartment with a kitchen that was available to us, and was a slight fee for using the oven top. The room was comfortable and... More

Great location very close to the train station. Lovely staff, 2 storey apartment. Had everything we needed, with the added bonus of a fabulous breakfast. Had that family run feeling. Would definitely stay again. Thank you.

Our experience of La Contessina was excellent. It was a surprising discovery. The staff were extremely friendly and we were able to check in past midnight with no problems. They are there 24hrs. The room we were given was large and comfortable with everything you need. Breakfast was also excellent and for us another important factor was parking at the... More

Family operated who were very friendly and helpful. Continental buffet breakfast was lovely, beds were very comfortable and the air con worked brilliantly in the summer heat. There are nice restaurants... More

Stayed here for our second trip to Florence for 2 weeks. The family who operate RLC are VERY helpful, approachable and cant do enough for you. Great location around the corner from the main railway station (though you wont notice the railway). Trattoria's up and down the street as well as craft beer and hotels. You are only 7 minutes...

Our family of 4 just stayed for two nights in July 2015. La Contessina has a superb location just five minutes by foot from the main train station, and also just minutes from all of the major sites. It is also close to the San Lorenzo market which quickly became one of our top picks for food on the 2nd... More

We were a group of 10... Across 3 generations!! The location is fantastic... At walking distance from most sights and restaurants in Florence. The owners are extremely helpful and assisted us in communicating with tour companies, taxi services, restaurants.... They were very helpful. The apartments are perfect for a family of 4, split over 2 levels. We did not need... More

Arrived very late and they totally cared for us. Room was beautiful, clean, great air conditioning and beyond our expectations. If you want to feel like you're in someone's home, this is the place to stay. From the breakfast to the decor, it's some place we'll return to again and again. Great location with highly attentive staff (family run and... 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.
