The hosts were great, gave some really good recommendations for restaurants nearby. The place was a little tricky to find at first, as it is only listed on a small metal plate ouside an apartment block, and requires a pin code to be inserted on two separate keypads to allow entry, but that is a plus as it means it...

Spacious and clean room, very modern indeed. Good security, with code to access the building after 6pm. Friendly staff at reception. Hotel is 5 mins walk to Academia Gallery (Statue of David) and 10 mins to the Duomo.

The noise coming from the streets is just too high, it's impossible to sleep in the morning. Also it's quite far from the historical area. Ther's nobody at the reception during the evening. I really recommend people to go to the city centre and choose a very good hotel (9.0 minimum on booking) and you'll be pleased to visit Firenze...

At the check-in at 10 am, we realised that and asked if we could have a quiet room but according to the receptionist, there was none... When we came back to sleep, we foind out that it was just...

Dear Mrs Mer, thanks for your review, it's always important for us to know what guests think about our Relais and our staff. In any case i have to answer to your complains: on the reservation you asked for a "bright room" so we gave you our brightest room with two big windows, that's why, even if we put new...

We're not really picky when it comes to hotel rooms. Relais Modern has everything that you need. We stayed there the 27-28th of August 2015, in a double room. Driving in Florence can be a little tricky but the hotel gave excellent directions. We parked a few blocks away and walked to checked in. The staff was pleasant and helpful....

Very friendly staff who were very accommodating. Modern b&b. Free wifi. Contemporary design. Air-conditioned. Lovely shower. Close to bus stops.Great location down the road from the Duomo. No luggage storage facilities but the staff is very accommodating and stored our bags after check out, as our train departed much later than check out time.

This accommodation was recommended to us. It was well priced and the staff were friendly and helpful. We found this place easily through the help of the taxi driver. The entry is a shared one with other businesses and apartments in the building. There are a few broad steps to get up before entering the hotel on the right. There...

Staying in San Marco

Neighborhood Profile
San Marco
The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a stone’s throw away from the Duomo of Florence, surprises everyone. A continuous flow of backpacking students provides the tranquil surroundings for the elderly residents who sit in Piazza San Marco to read the daily newspaper. Home to several universities, including the Academy of Fine Arts, San Marco is one of the most vibrant cultural centers in the city. A bridge connecting the modern cultural activity of Florence to its classic art, represented by the everlasting magnificence of the original David, resonates as a symbol of Florence and of Italy as a whole. Get lost in a Neoclassic world, a journey back in time through historic buildings like Spedale degli Innocenti (Hospital of the Innocents), San Marco church, Basilica della Santissima Annunziata, and natural jewels like the Botanical Gardens.
