We recently spent 3 nights at hotel Rex. The hotel is excellently located near most of the major city sites. Our room was adequate size but felt worn and outdated. Bathroom was quite small and tight. Breakfast was adequate and reception staff were pleasant and helpful.

Had a very nice week at this hotel early may. Triple room incl breakfast at a superb location: Medici's chapel can be reached within 1 minute, and the railway station within 5 (also busstop for airport shuttle). Old room, but clean; large towels (and enough! If we stay in a 4 star hotel we often have to ask for the... More

Great service, nice and clean, Rocco a great character. Perfect place to stay, close to everything, especially if you plan on walking every where. Breakfasts are simple, but fills you up. Value for money. Florence is also a fantastic city.

We were very pleased with our room, it was large, comfortable and clean. This hotel has also a fantastic location, 5 mins from the Duomo and Train Station. Breakfast was excellent, good WiFi connection. I recommend this hotel!

The room was only average - at best - with clear signs of wear and tear taking the gloss off what could have been a rustic simple lodging. We took advantage of booking on line where there was an implied promise of no more to pay and parking included. We were hit with "city taxes" at the end of our... More

Location is excellent: within a short walking distance of Il Duomo and the Academia. Staff are ver welcoming. The hotel is difficult to reach by car, because it is in a maze of one-way and pedestrian streets just behind the train station, although once you reach the hotel the staff readily help you get your car into a near-by car-park...

I love Florence and everytime I come back I sleep in this hotel. The decoration is very simple, the rooms are pretty small but the food is ok and the location is perfect, in the heart of San Lorenzo. If you want a luxury hotel, im sorry but this isn't your hotel.

We spent 6 nights at Hotel Rex and had a lovely time. It is right in the heart of Florence about a two minute walk from the duomo, which was perfect for us as we did lots of sightseeing. Breakfast was fine and the staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. Rooms were basic but always clean and we felt we... More

So me and my friends came to Florence for one night and we chose Hotel Rex because of its location, but the "Hotel" could barely be called one! The staff was uninterested, the rooms we took (two of them) were outdated, didn't seem clean at all, the beds were not comfortable and one seemed to be almost broken, the bathrooms... 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.
