Very central location with country side style decorations. Rooms are nice and cozy. Very convenient. The Duomo are outside our door and Ufizzi are just 10 mins walking. The host is welcoming and helpful to give us tips on where to visit and where to eat. Good recommendations. Only minor problem is that the bath room is a bit out... More

Warm hospitality by the owners. Central location walking distance to all main attractions. Apartment was very satisfying with all amenities ready and clean for use. Wi-Fi perfect.... More

Lovely room with kitchen. Very friendly and helpful hosts. Very central place and easy to get to, walking distance from the station. The perfect place for me , can't wait to get back. If you want a very quiet place this is not for you because Borgo San Lorenzo is always busy. I did enjoy people watching from my window... More

Staff was very pleasant and helpful. Hotel is literally around the corner from the Duomo and central to all the attractions. Great resto's nearby, grocery... More

we stayed here for one night whilst doing the main sites in Florence. Our room was clean, comfortable bed, good shower; everything that we needed. but the main selling point is the location, once we'd got past the slightly confusing directions and found it you couldn't fault its location. it really is a stones throw from the Duomo and easy...

Ideal location very close to the cathedral. Large rooms, comfortable beds, private shower/toilet for each room, but along the corridor for some rooms. Tea/coffee (instant!) in rooms, along with packaged crackers and croissant, but good prices negotiated in a nearby bar for breakfast - excellent visit and restaurant recommendations were most welcome too!

I stayed there in July 2016. Very good place to stay. Literally in downtown, 30 second’s walk from the main cathedral. Very very helpful reception.

I didn't give it a five because it had no personnel from 7pm to 8am. Rooms were good shower worked. Would have loved it if it had an elevator. Lots of restaurants and Ice cream shops. Almost place you want to go is less than 30 min away. Lots of fancy store near by.

Once I negotiated those stairs with my luggage I absolutely loved the room and my own private bathroom. Julio is a great host and gave me top advice on places I wanted to go and things I wanted to see. You are right in the middle of Florence steps away from the Duomo and San Lorenzo markets where you can... 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.
