Our tour company booked this hotel for our group of 33 travelers. Our check-in was handled by our tour director and appeared to go seamlessly. Our rooms were ready upon our arrival and were very acceptable to my wife and me. All from our group that we talked to about their room were satisfied with their accommodations. The strong point...

Hotels rooms are smaller as compared the the US and since the buildings are old the renovation does not compare to what we have here. Nevertheless it is clean and comfortable and the proximity to all the action and sight seeing is the plus.

The staff at the hotel were lovely and so helpful. The waiter at their restaurant, his name escapes me, was seriously amazing!! He was so helpful and the service was impeccable. The rooms were nice as well, just a bit of street noise but I think that's unavoidable honestly!!

This property was booked by the tour group we were traveling through Italy with and not by us personally. However, having just had an amazing stay in Rome, our expectations were high when we checked in. Those feelings quickly diminished once we saw our room. The room was dark, tiny, dirty (smudges on the wall, mold in the corners of... More

We stayed 3 nights. Booked online for the price, but after reading reviews we were a little worried. We had great access to all of Florence, including a very short walk to the SMN Terminal. We loved that it was a little away from the tourist attractions, but close enough. We did laundry around the corner (about €18 for 2... More

Stayed in this hotel for 2 days out of our 10 day trip in Europe and I have to say that this hotel was by far the best. The rooms were pretty big, breakfast was included, and the bar was open. Awesome.

I must say that this hotel was a good stay. There was enough room for us to move around. It was within walking distance to shopping, food, etc. The food they served for breakfast was very good and freshly made. I definitely would recommend this hotel for your stay to Florence, Italy..

We were pleasantly surprised by the friendly attentative staff and general reception area. The bathroom for our room -210 - was lovely, sparkly clean and had fabulous white soft towels. However, the bedroom was small, cramped and furnished a rather tired beige colour. The walls were very very thin!! Overall our stay was fine but the bedrooms of this hotel... 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.
