Within walking distance to all the major attractions of Florence, this BB has all the feel, the ambiance and the soul of a private florentine residence of the past. Luca, the manager is in love with his city and his passion shows. He was a very valuable guide to us during our 4 nights stay, suggesting great trattorias and places... More

Six of us gahered here in preparation for a family wedding. All four rooms were well equipped and comfortable. My husband and I enjoyed the treat of a four poster bed and the benefit of a bath, shower, bidet and wash basin. The room provided a good array of books, pictures and occasional furniture and had windows overlooking the adjoining... More

I loved every single thing about this hotel. It's just a few streets removed from the hectic tourist-strewn center, so you have easy access to everything, but come home to a quiet and beautiful block. The hotel does not have staff after 7pm, so it feels a bit like staying in your own apartment, something I enjoyed. For emergencies during... More

We greatly enjoyed our stay here for 8 nights. This was a room within a suite of rooms in a residential building on a quiet street, within a15 minutes walk from all the main sights. It isn't really an hotel but, when visiting an historic city like Florence, do you really want to stay in the sort of standard hotel... More

I loved this place and hope to return to spend more time exploring Florence. I stayed in Room 5. Although it was right on the street, I did not hear any noise.

I had booked this hotel looking at reviews. However, first of all, it’s not a hotel and it’s like renting a room in old house which was tried to convert in hotel room. So no service after 7pm including check-in. That’s big surprised. There were mosquitoes in the room, nothing was provided for the same, I mentioned this while check... More

This hotel is located just enough off the beaten path so as to not feel touristy but close enough to everything that my wife and I walked to everything. The hotel room was very nice and clean, as was the bathroom. The staff is very kind and helpful. Overall, it was a great place to stay!

This small hotel is so charming, it is located in an old building a bit far from center and has only 10 rooms. We had room# 8 which was really beautiful.

This is a terrific lodging choice and a place we would definitely stay again.

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.
