The hotel is good and close enough to walk to most of the tourist sights. We booked a suite as we have a young daughter. The suite had a balcony overlooking the square which was nice but the 'lounge' area was a narrow room with a sofa and desk only. The TV was in the bedroom so you couldn't sit...

Hotel is highly recommended: great service, great rooms. We spent 4 nights here on a city break. The hotel staff are all lovely and very attentive. Breakfast was lovely - good selection of food with bacon, scrambled eggs included. It is not right in the city centre but takes 10 mins to walk to the Academia and another 5 to...

Beautiful hotel, clean and maintained. Nice and courteous staff. Excellent breakfast. Room nice and spacious. Bicycles can borrow from the hotel and this is a great way to get to the historical center. But...wi.fi is not free.Require expensive charge on it. Today, in modern times, it is no longer appropriate. ditza sela, Israel

The room was nice and clean with a decent bed. Really nice bathroom with a powerful,hot shower and a bath. Our room included breakfast which was a continental buffet and scrambled eggs, juices and amazing fresh coffee. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Only negative is that it is about 20-25 minute walk to the duomo which is quite far...

My mom and I visited Florence October 1-7, and I would absolutely recommend this hotel. The staff is top notch. From the moment we arrived, EVERYONE on staff was friendly and helpful. There was nothing they wouldn't do. They called the airport for us when the airline lost my mom's luggage. They also were great with providing directions and advising...

The location is pretty good, far enough from the touristy area but not too far out in the middle of no where. It was about a 15-20 minute walk to the sites (Duomo, Galleria Accademia, Uffizi, etc). There are a few cute restaurants on the way into town, nothing behind the hotel. The Wi-Fi was very expensive compared to the...

We had booked this hotel after looking all over the city about a month before our visit to Italy. We settled on this because we couldn't find anything else. Apparently it was a busy time in Florence before the big bike race in Sept. 2013. After 1 1/2 weeks of staying in a villa we expected to be disappointed. However,...

My husband and I visited Venice, Florence and Rome staying in a different hotel in each city. By far, this hotel was our favorite. The staff was excellent and even helped us make our tour confirmations. Also, the bartender helped us find a restaurant that was open late so we didn't have to eat frozen bar food. Our room however...

We stayed two nights in San Gallo Palace during our travels through Italy. The garden outside as well as the bike rentals was a nice touch. Florence is a hard city to drive in so I suggest the convenient local transportation to downtown as well as to Fiesole. The breakfast was typical fresh Italian food. (Remember, Italians don't eat eggs...

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.
