Other reviewers are right, they do not give you towels but tablecloth. The room is clean but very creepy. Very noisy hotel. If you take long baths, the water from the bathroom starts to flow towards your bedroom! It had an OK location, we never took a cab, all of florence best attractions are in the tange of 10-30 min...

I wont recommend it to anyone who can spend 15/20 euros more. You might get a breakfast at that price and here we had several issues. 1. Bad towels..actually pillow covers/table cloths. 2. No toiletteries 3. No TV/Alarm clocks' Ok so you might think this is fine if its cheap. What about a holiday to get some Mosquito bites..well not... More

I want to start this off by saying, the lady who runs the hotel is a lovely lady, very friendly and sweet but speaks no word of English. So don't book unless you speak (at the very least) basic Italian. Other than the owner, this was without a doubt the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. We booked having... More

The old lady at the reception didn't speak English.......... From the time we got in the hotel, we didn't feel comfortable. It looks like more like an empty house. The room was not like the photos on the website. So disappointing. It was clean though. Not value for money. Not even that cheap as later I stayed in much better... More

Double rooms (quite big) for 30€ with sink. Shared bathroom. Everything very clean! The owner and her son are adorable and nice. Located close to ALL the attractions in Florence by foot. Just regret they don't serve breakfast but well it's cheap and totally worth it. Plus there's a shared kitchen as well if you prefer to make food instead... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Losanna Hotel for a few days during a ten day trip in Italy and that it was good accommodation for the price. The hotel is a bit of a walk from the train station (about 20-25 minutes) but is a bit closer to the main attractions in Florence - especially the Il Duomo... More

This is a simple hotel with basic rooms and friendly staff. I stayed for two nights in a no-frills double room with private bathroom; no television, a phone that was no working; barely warm water. The bed was clean and comfortablle. Wifi is free, but only in certain spots. The neighbouring rooms were noisy. Location of the hotel is excellent,... More

This little place is somewhere that I stayed because it got decent ratings and was... cheap (for Florence, anyway!). The hotel staff was friendly and certainly did their best to help make the stay better... The two women who run the hotel gave us bus tickets and never charged us for them, as we were running late to make a... More

Its a tad far walk from the train station, but not too bad to the main attractions in Florence. Hotel occupies first floor of the building. The receptionists were friendly and spoke enough English to understand what they meant. The room and bathrooms were clean. Two different bathrooms shared by the entire floor. There is a nice patio to sit... More

Old style building and room with ensuite, clean and reasonable price. Did not take the offered breakfast and was good decision. Quite location about 10 minute walk from the Duomo. No frills but more than adequate. Would return.

Staying in San Marco

Neighborhood Profile
San Marco
The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a stone’s throw away from the Duomo of Florence, surprises everyone. A continuous flow of backpacking students provides the tranquil surroundings for the elderly residents who sit in Piazza San Marco to read the daily newspaper. Home to several universities, including the Academy of Fine Arts, San Marco is one of the most vibrant cultural centers in the city. A bridge connecting the modern cultural activity of Florence to its classic art, represented by the everlasting magnificence of the original David, resonates as a symbol of Florence and of Italy as a whole. Get lost in a Neoclassic world, a journey back in time through historic buildings like Spedale degli Innocenti (Hospital of the Innocents), San Marco church, Basilica della Santissima Annunziata, and natural jewels like the Botanical Gardens.
