Takes a bit of a walk to get to the sites. Walked it on Day 1 to the duomo. Not too bad until you have to walk back too. But figure out the C1 bus, and everything becomes convenient. The bus is just around the corner. This is clearly a 4 star hotel once you walk in. Finally a hotel...

This was a really lovely hotel, very clean and lovely spacious rooms, which is quite rare for hotels in Italian cities. As other reviews have mentioned, it is a bit of a walk to the centre (about 20 minutes to il duomo) but I didn't find this excessive and think the location is reflected in the price as I found...

Great Location within a short walk to town centre, superb rooms, true italian style, renovated bathrooms. Awesome staff. Could not ask for more helpful staff, nothing was ever a problem. Wifi you have to pay for which was a bit expensive.

Before reading my review, just a little information on myself. My fiancee and I stayed here in May 2013. I am very honest in my reviews and take into perspective not only the hotel overall, but the price, location, etc. when reviewing. The hotel was very clean and the room was of decent size. I wouldn't say it is a...

Stayed here for 4 nights in June. We were very happy with the hotel. I would give 4 1/2 if it were possible, so that would be a very, very good thing. Now if you absolutely need free wi-fi to make your visit to an amazing, historic, art-filled city like Florence worth your while, you should pick somewhere else to...

I cannot understand why everyone is raving about the location of this hotel. It is an absolute nightmare walking 25 minutes into the nearest attraction, in 30 degree heat. 25 mins didn't sound that long to me until I actually had to do it in heat and humidity! Perhaps the other reviewers travelled in winter and therefore did not mind...

Dear guest, we are always sensible to our clients suggestions, but lookink forward our location in Florence we want to specify that the distance, by walk, from the Hotel and Accademia, Piazza San Marco is maximum 10 minutes; to reach the Duomo you need 15/20 minutes walk. It's a pleasant walk through Via San Gallo , one of the oldest...

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. While the hotel is quite pretty with very friendly staff and comfortable, large rooms, we did find the hotel a bit far from the central spots in Florence. The hotel is a ten euro cab drive (not walkable distance) to the central train station as well and a 40-60...

My husband and I were visiting in May, for business. The organization chose this hotel. It turned out to be a lovely discovery-just off the beaten path, but close enough to walk to all sites. We has a few problems with ventilation but that was addressed promptly. The room and bath were a good size. As is often the experience,...

This is one of the rare hotels in Italy that does not try to fleece its customers with exorbitant fees and overpriced food and services. Clean room, excellent service, very good location, highly recommend it to American tourists whose dollar is worth 40% less than at home.

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.
