First time we used a B & B traveling in Europe (only 4 & 5 star Hotels!). This may be the new way to go -- felt like a 5 star experience with the comforts of being at home. The property is centrally located and a short (2 min) walk from the train station. It is walking distance from every... More

Thank you Julian, your is a professional review! I am happy you had a good stay at Zip. A little curiosity to compensate the lack of a nice view: the building with a text on "F.lli Alinari 1852" is the home of the oldest company in the world in the field of photography :) Greetings. Elena More

Stayed in the Seventies Room. It was super clean, quiet with stylishly modern decor. Located 5 minutes walk from the station and close to many restaurants and main attractions of Florence. Elena was welcoming and friendry and provided a good breakfast. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Location is close to all main attractions. The rooms are in the 3rd level (no elevator), new renovated, spacious rooms, very nice and clean bathroom. Elena is a amiable host, supports whenever necessary. Contact response via mail was also very fast and precise.

Easy walking to the Florence Railway Station but in a quiet street. Elena was a friendly cheerful host who helped us arrange a gallery booking. The apartment was colourful and very attractive. The bathroom was beautiful. We walked to most of the attractions and bussed to Michelangelo Palazzo. We had a very comfortable stay in Florence at Zip.

Elena is a wonderfull host. She makes you feel like home but at the same time she respects your privacy. The house and the rooms are super clean. The interior of this unique place makes you smile, bright colors everywhere, in a modern seventies and eighties style, I don t think there's another b&b like this one. In the morning... More

This was a very nice b&b close to the train station. The place was very lovely and comfortable at a reasonable price. We had a great breakfast in the morning.

Thank you dear guest! I am happy you found Zip a good place to stay. I am sorry for your friends, sometimes from one of the two rooms you can hear some noises caused from people walking in the street and, perhaps, this can be a trouble for somebody that usually sleeps in very silent places .

I would definitely recommend this B&B for the reasons as follows. First, Elena is a very nice, energetic and friendly host. Second, the B&B is very close to the train station (Firenze S.M.N). We only took five minutes walk to get there. Third, the room is fantastic. Clean, stylish, and comfortable. Fourth, the breakfast is delicious. We hope that we... More

Great Location! Elena is a wonderful. I stayed 7 nights while I was visiting my daughter who is studying in Florence. The location to the sites, the train station, as well as where my daughter is studying was ideal. The B&B is clean and breakfast good as well.

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.
