Hotel Villa San Lorenzo e Maria
We spent two nights here in late September. Checkin was friendly and fast, and things just kept getting better. The front desk staff are relaxed yet professional, and really know the city and, in particular, the San Lorenzo area, which is near the university, so has a Bohemian vibe. (The hotel, on the other hand, is quiet and refined, in its own shady courtyard set back from the street, like a villa. There are even some wild green parrots in the trees shading the courtyard.) Our room was comfortable and elegantly decorated, with a nice bed, large armoire, and writing desk. The bathroom was large and fully equipped, and included an assortment of nice toiletries. Breakfast, which is included, was buffet-style and very satisfying. The crowning touch was when staff sent up a small bottle of prosecco with a happy birthday note - they had seen the birth date when registering our passports.
