Location was excellent as we were using the train. We had the apartment in the courtyard and it was nice and quiet. Décor had a pleasant, traditional feel. Air conditioning in both rooms was great as we where there during high temperatures.

The hotel is located accross the road from the train station on a busy street. Grabbing a meal was never a problem because of the large number of restaurants around. The staff was very helpful in recommending some great restaurants close by. We were in the room next to the stairs. The room is decently sized with a big bathroom... 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.
