During our four day stay in Firenze, we enjoyed being at this hotel. It is convenient to many attractions within Firenze, yet was quiet. The staff was friendly and welcoming, eager to offer recommendations and help however they can. The breakfast offered each morning was fresh and the staff was working hard!

We found this hotel on TripAdvisor. It is very good and we would certainly visit again. Our room - 121 - was large, comfortable and quiet. Our stay was four nights. The breakfast is good. All of the staff are really friendly and very helpful. They told us where to discover a local ice cream parlour which sold Sicilian ice... More

This was a wonderful hotel. They could not have been more hospitable and helpful. We loved this hotel and it was so convenient. Just a few blocks from the Duomo and we could walk to all of the sights we wanted to see. They even valet parked our car for us and took care of everything. We had a room... More

Our experience with the professional and helpful staff began prior to our stay in Florence. They provided us with information so we could choose the rooms that best suited our party of five. Also, we were advised to make reservations for the museums and given information about the best tours (which they arranged for us). We found the location easily... More

Unfortunately we arrived in Florence on the day that taxi drivers decided to strike, so after what seemed like an hour's cross-town walk with a suitcase and carry-on in the summer heat we arrived at a welcoming Il Guelfo Bianco. As other reviewers have said, its number one attraction is location, 5 minutes walk to Cathedral of Santa Maria del... More

Great location and great people! Breakfast is good. Rooms are OK, which you will not even notice as you would probably always be outside either dining or walking around. Owners ensure you get everything done and always accommodating! You will not regret!

Stayed here for 3 nights at the end of July. The hotel is full of Olde World Italian charm and was perfectly located for all the major sights. The Duomo was a short stroll away and the Statue of David was in the next street along. The room was clean and very comfortable and either accessed by a lift or... More

This hotel is AWESOME! I love the "old world charm" décor, the staff is friendly and helpful. We arrived later than we anticipated and they upgraded our room. What a great surprise! The room was exquisite but when we went into the bathroom, I was not expecting that HUGE of a tub!! It was so nice soaking in a tub... More

I saw the reviews and was skeptical that a hotel can have such good reviews. So, my wife & I stayed at the hotel for 4 days in July. The hotel is not the most modern but that's where the negatives stop. The positives are: + 5-10 minutes to all major attractions & railway station + 5-10 minutes to all... More

Great hotel in a great location. The staff are friendly and welcoming and offer great insight on what to do in the city. There is a fantastic bistro attached to the hotel as well. Breakfast was delicious with coffees and teas being made to order. Rooms are comfortable and well decorated.

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our hotel is right in the city center, between Piazza Duomo and Piazza San Marco , few steps away from Accademia (the museum where you can see the famous DAVID by Michelangelo). It's housed in two late 15th century building next each other. All rooms are different in size and position - executive rooms have a standard size - superior rooms are larger - de luxe and junior suite are very large with a sitting area. We have rooms overlooking the courtyard, gardens and several rooms overlooking Via Cavour which is the main street but 70% pedestrian and so it's not too noisy. All rooms have triple glasses and double windows. WI/FI available in all the rooms and the drawing rooms and it's free of charge if you have your own laptop or i-phone or i-pad. Bistrot restaurant next door "IL DESCO" open every day (12 till 10,30 pm but on Sunday it closes at 3,00 pm) with good menu' all day long (many organic products directly by the owner's farm. ... more   less
