Great b&b located about a 7 minute walk to the train station (we wheeled our 5 large suitcases without too much trouble). It was also close to markets, the Duomo and great shopping opportunities. The rooms were spacious and clean. Breakfast was ample. Staff were welcoming, friendly and knowledgable. We were given a map and given suggestions for places to... More

Great room, big bathroom, comfortable bed. The people that run the place are very friendly and helpful, everything was incredibly clean. It's close to the train station, which is convenient. Short walks to all of the major landmarks. Great breakfast spread in the room. It was a bit noisy, but bearable. You could just hear people coming and going a... More

We have just been in Florence for 12 days and all the time we stayed at Ridolfi Guest House, even when visiting the small villages around Florence we came back the end of the day to Florence again. Staying at Ridolfi was really very good. Eliseo, the owner, is the kindest person a visitor can meet in a B&B and... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Ridolfi Guest House for two nights in July, and have nothing but praise. The location is excellent, within walking distance to the station and central Florence. The room was comfortable, clean and spacious and had good air conditioning. Despite the fact the bathroom was external, it was our own private bathroom and was incredibly... More

We had an amazing experience at the Ridolfi Guest House. It was a fast walk from the train station, which we found to be very important for travel days. The owner was so amazingly helpful and friendly. He gave us great advice on restaurants and places not to miss. We had mentioned that we would arrive a little before check-in,... More

We enjoyed our stay in this B&B. Our room was big and quite. The place has a kitchen. The room was also very clean and the place has a character. The owner was friendly and responsive. The only thing that we had to pay extra for checking after 5pm since there is no 24 hours on-site person.

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.
