3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

We had 2 separate rooms both at 40 euros each which seemed cheap for Florence. Perfectly adequate and very well located.n Biggest minus was the noise from the street below. Music and shouting through the night and then the constant wheeling of huge trollies to and fro from the nearby market early in the morning and evening. I was offered a much quieter room at the back with an en suite shower but decided to stick to the 40 euros after I was given a fan which I kept on all night and successfully blocked out the noise especially with the window closed. Did the job all round. More

The one positive thing about this place is its location on via Faenza, which is a street filled with shops and restaurants and is a safe area to walk in at night. Barbara house is located minutes away from Florence’s Santa Maria Novella Train Station and walking distance to major attractions like the San Lorenzo Market, Duomo, Uffizi Gallery, and Ponte Vecchio.

If your top priority is price/location, then this would be a place to consider. Since bathrooms are high on my list, and it did not meet my standards, I would not recommend Barbara House.

Pros:
Hotel is on a great street, proximity to train station and major attractions

Cons:
Room is old and tired looking (although cleaned daily), washroom is in need of a renovation

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.
