This small hotel (5-6 rooms) is located across from the Piazza dell'Liberta park and arches (hope i spelt that correctly), and just a short stroll to the David statue and most major sites of downtown Florence. It's on the 1st piano of a nice older five-story building. Tidy little sitting area at reception. Free wifi. The rooms face away from...

The price is right, the rooms are serviceable albeit small and basic, and it is a reasonable walk to downtown. The area is quiet, but conversely that means little in services and restaurants is nearby. The biggest issue is the reception that shuts down at 2:00 pm. We advised we were arriving at 4:00 which they confirmed, but it still...

Relatively recently renovated rooms in an old building with an (at first glance) not too promising entrance. When in the rooms we were surprised by the nice deco, the cleanliness, quiet, the spacious room. Very friendly owners, near bus stops with bus service to the centre.

Friggin amazing. I'd say the best hotel we've stayed in for the price range we've been aiming at. You can see that they take pride in their room and the care of comfort for guests. Everything needed and more in the room we stayed in. I can see how reception times would be restrictive, but 80-90% of our travel has...

The hotel was great. It was spotless, in a great location, quiet and it had a fridge fully stuffed with food and drinks available for free. The owners were very helpful and I would highly recommend. The location is absolutely perfect as it is close to the city center, but far enough from the more touristy/crazy parts of town. However...

We arrived without a reservation, we were very tired and we looked it. The girl at the reception did her best to accommodate us, we were planning to stay for two nights but then decided to stay for one more night, they kept us in the same room. The location is 10-15 mins straight walk away from the historical center,...

This hotel is wonderful. Great location, quiet, very clean, AIR CONDITIONING! Yay! It says no breakfast included but they leave you little pastries and waters in the room. There is no parking, so if driving in park in a lot outside of Florence and take the bus in and then walk. Florence is so beautiful you have to walk everywhere...

This little gem of a guesthouse is amazingly well located in Florence. Easy walking distance into the city centre, with many eateries found close at hand. Charmingly furnished clean and tidy rooms with comfy beds. Staff were lovely and a late check-in was no problem with adequate notice. Definitely coming back.

You have to arrive for check in before 2pm. When it transpired that we were likely to miss this deadline by a couple of hours, I tried to contact the guesthouse to ask for a 4pm check in. I tried by phone, email, even Facebook, repeatedly over the course of the 5 hours between 9am and their 2pm close. I...

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.
