“reasonable and convenient”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

This hotel is only 2-3 minuted for the main train station as well as the bus station and all the hop on hop off station. There is a laundry shop opposite with dryer as well. Santa maria novella is across the street and a lot of shopping and restaurant around this area. The location is thumb up but the hotel is bit old and the room is small. And there is layer of carpet on the floor which looks very dirty. The breakfast is not bad but the staff are not friendly in the breakfast place. The front desk staff is very helpful but not the night shift one as he is a young guys and everything you ask he will say don't know. There is a small lift if you have big heavy luggage. I will recommend it for its location but not for the room but you can't have everything perfect so is either this or that.

Room Tip: I guess all the room is pretty much the same so it depends whether is a double bed or twin bed.

Situated minutes from SMN station the San Giorgio has excellent location especially as the walking tour we were booked on shortly after arrival was also minutes from hotel.

Staff were prepared to assist with any questions we may have and even printed off train timetables for us which was very beneficial as SMN is very busy and quite confusing.

Breakfast was average but again staff were on hand to ensure we had everything we needed.

Rooms were basic, but very clean and adequately furnished.

Would definitely book again.

Room Tip: Need to ask for WIF code No kettle in room but staff will provide with jugs of hot water.

We enjoyed our stay at the San Giorgio. Location was very close to the train station but as you turned the corner to the hotel you entered a classic narrow Florence street, with nice restaurants and a coin-laundry just steps away. Just up the street is a busy open market, which my teenage girls enjoyed walking through each day on the way to the sights that are quite close by. The staff is reserved but warm. This older, smaller hotel is very charming and comfortable, with a good breakfast and coffee. The wifi only really works in the lobby, which has a cozy sitting area with a couple couchs and several chairs for hanging out. We would love to stay here again.

This hotel is very good located. Walking distance to train station and bus stop and numerous attractions. Go for a walk up and down the narrow streets. Not too much noise. Bathroom needs updating. Value for money.

Room Tip: Good value for money if you need a place to sleep

Loved it for the location- enough said- it was perfect! Literal 5 minutes from station then 5 minutes to centre of Firenze.

Offers breakfast which is good enough! The entrance is old style but very comfortable. The whole hotel had a cosy, at home feeling. Reception was friendly and welcoming, though we waited a bit for our room to be prepared at 2pm.

The room was spacious enough for three people and air con was really nice for summer.

The location of the hotel is excellent nearby to the central station of Florence. The Town's center duomo is 10 min. away on foot. This is an old building like everywhere else in Florence but well renovated. The room was big enough very well furnished and clean. To the upper stores there are rooms with view. Also there is a convenient lounge. Excellent wi fi connection into the room. The only we did not like was the breakfast. It should be better.

Pros: location near tourist sights and train station if planning to ride rails often with florence as home base. Our room was surprisingly a good size, don't know if that's same for all. Breakfast coffee was good. Cons: Bathroom was small and toilet flushing was a challenge. Dragging bags around step filled 5th floor was fun. Getting coffee during breakfast was a mission. Would book again for right price because really only used hotel to sleep.
