We were in Room one, yes there was a mosquito but the manager gave us something for the room. He was very helpful and friendly as was the receptionist. The room was cleaned every day. Good value and great location. Not much choice at breakfast but good enough and we were late but was still allowed to have something one... More

Decline room 1. It has bathroom under the stairs. I've never seen anything like it. No soap. Ask at reception. The floor is always wet. The room mosquitoes. Poor breakfast without fruit. The location is good. The hotel is not 3 stars.

The best part about this hotel is that it is located on the route of the hop on hop off bus tours. The management charged us for a baby crib which we did not use. The hotel locality is slightly deserted and is scary to walk alone during nights

We really enjoyed our stay there especially the owner and receptionist!!! When we mentioned we are going to come back late, they gave us a key from the main door so we could get into the hotel. Helpful staff, private secured parking per 15 euro, old fashioned design, furniture and elevator! Great breakfast too. 10- 15 minutes to Cathedral. Would... More

We have recently returned from a 3 night stay at the Il Granduca and have slightly differing views. My wife felt it was quite old fashioned in decor and furnishings, which she did not like. However, I felt it fitted in with the feel of the hotel and it was not an issue for me. One thing we did agree... More

Staff was incredible nice and helpful!! Great Cappucino :) Excellent service! Rooms are quite simple, but equipped with new bathrooms and everything was always clean. Attractions are in walking distance and parking is available upon request.

This was a pretty unpleasant experience, the only one actually, we had during our stay in lovely Florence. To begin with, the hotel is no less than 30 minutes on foot from the historical center and 35 from the train station, and we are fast walkers. So beware if you want to take day trips as you will have to... More

Il Granduca was a good choice of hotel for us: location was perfect, within a 15 minute walk from the historic centre, but not right in the middle of the tourist hustle and bustle; the price was reasonable, and the staff were excellent, helpful and friendly. Positives: - friendly helpful staff - beautiful quirky building with an old style lift... More

I am sorry to say that I staid in a poor room and also paid twice for it. An experience like this simply ruins your vacation. The staff was simply disappointing as I felt no effort has been made for me to receive my money back. I wasn't just left without my hard earned money I also wasted a lot... More

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.
