I've been staying at Hotel Cellai regularly for more than a decade and can't say enough good things about it. It has real character and unique amenities - a lavish breakfast buffet with candlelight and music, modern art shows in the elegant public rooms, and, best of all, a roof terrace with an "honesty bar" where you can have a...

I am so into antiques and styles from different era's and Hotel Cellai was a vintage lovers' dream come true. This boutique hotel's owner is a collector, and showcases incredible pieces all over the hotel, including gorgeous velvet couches, lamps and an antique piano. For those that prefer high tech. and modern, this is not the hotel for you. An... More

We traveled through Italy for two weeks and this was the most expensive hotel we stayed and our least favorite. Desk staff was completely frazzled at check in. The bellman, who worked incredibly hard, was also very "pungent". Not the best welcome. The hallways also had a nasty odor of sewage which was disconcerting. The 1st room we were given... More

Have just spent four nights at this very quirky and unique boutique hotel. There were charming cozy lounges where you could enjoy a quiet drink from the honesty bar which was an unusual feature and it was nice not having to wait to be served as in a traditional bar. The breakfast room was fine but on a couple of... More

My husband and I first visited the Cellai about 10 years ago and have chosen to stay there on multiple trips to Florence. The Cellai is consistently a great value in a major city. The charm and atmosphere of the Cellai captures the history and architecture of the city itself. Cellai artfully blends antique and modern. We always feel comfortable... More

When I travel to Italy, I like to stay in smaller, older boutique hotels rather than big American-style ones. Hotel Cellai fits the bill perfectly. My husband and I are in the middle of our 3-night stay with a small group of alumni travelers from my university. Our room and bathroom are not overly large but they are typically European.... More

This is a deceptively big hotel--it looks small and its floors meander among some nice art and cozy sitting areas so you don't get the feel of a large hotel until you're at breakfast when it's very crowded. But the food more than makes up for the crowd. It's a great buffet assortment of eggs, quiches, sweets, fruits, etc. Best... More

Charming hotel with well-appointed rooms. Comfortable quite room. Friendly, helpful staff with a good grasp of English. Bountyful breakfast buffett. Very nice honor bar and happy hour! Quite location away from the crowds, however, a short walk to Piazza dell' Duomo, Galleria dell' Accademia, Ponte Vecchio, Cappelle Medicee, Basilica of San Lorenzo and Piazza della Signoria, Highly recommend!

The Cellai is sweet little hotel, about 15 minutes walk from the centre of Florence - the Duomo. The rooms are slightly on the smaller side and the bathroom is pretty small, but they have a rooftop lounging area from where you can see the Duomo over the tops of the city's red roofed houses. It is a beautiful sight.... 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.
