Great value for money. Though my room was small, it was very clean and literally a few steps away from the beautiful duomo. I was travelling alone and not disappointed whatsoever. Travelled in October 2014 - I'm grossly late in writing this review but it had to be done.

Stayed July 2014. The reception gave us a larger room that came with a kitchenette for our five night stay. The room was the largest one our trip to Italy which was nice. Wifi did not really work in the room, nor did our 3G. The hotel is conveniently 10mins from the train station and you can stroll your luggage... More

Central location. Very convenient, it's really close to the Duomo. The bed is large and comfortable. However, everything in the room seems quite old, and the room itself is not very clean. Also, it's very noisy during both day and night...we can hear people downstairs (which is a busy street) talking, yelling, laughing even in the midnight......

First off - this place is sort of no frills, from a service standpoint. The owners that service it are not on site 24/7. They are there mostly in the morning. They depend on savvy travelers, ready to follow the directions provided to gain access to your room. Having said that - the directions are very clear, the location is... More

With only 2 nights in Florence we wanted a central location, close to everything yet within walking distance of the station - and at a reasonable price. We got it! The room was huge with a huge bathroom too. Everything worked well, it was spotlessly clean, and the bed was comfortable. As our room wasn't quite ready we went round... More

We stayed three very comfortable nights at this guest house in Florence. Check in was easy. We arrived in the afternoon when the desk is unattended but we had an entry code and clear instructions regarding which room was ours and keys to the room. The location is fabulous- close walk to everything. The room was large by European standards.... More

Positioned right between the main train terminal and the duomo, this made the location excellent when arriving into Florence and for basing yourself to explore the citt. This is not a B&B or a hotel, so don't expect breakfast or facilities to make it. But, the staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms were large and clean and the... More

It is located very close to Duomo and close to train station as well. You can reach most places by walking (within 10 mins) The room is very clean and tidy. The owners were very friendly and even though it is situated on the busy street, it was amazingly quiet at night.

I stayed here for 4 nights in June and it was excellent. The location was perfect, being only 30 yards from the Duomo and most of the sights within easy walking distance. The room was very spacious and even had a kitchenette with fridge, hob and microwave. The owners were very freindly and helpful and all in all great value... 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.
