Disappointed with this place. The room was nice and clean, but the cigarette smell in the courtyard was overwhelming and off putting. I picked this place as I wanted a kitchen for my 5 night stay. When I arrived all the kitchen utensils etc were locked up and I was told I had to pay extra for it as my... More

We stayed here last year in September and loved the place, returned this year and were disappointed. The La Contessina is in a terrific location, the rooms are comfortable, quiet and reasonably clean. Part of our disappointment was our ability to compare the service from last year to this. A much better level of service than we received this year... More

Really pleasant room between train station and the centre of Florence. Really convenient for exploring this beautiful city, but far enough away from the crowds of tourists. Our room was right above the street, but we were never disturbed. Loved the breakfast provided by the adjacent restaurant. Great stay, thanks very much!

Nice little family run hotel walking distance from the main train station and into the central part of town. The room itself is a bit old and less modern. But fits the budget and has free wifi and airconditioning. Helpful staff who know the best places to eat and visit too.

Staying in San Lorenzo

Neighborhood Profile
San Lorenzo
San Lorenzo’s lively merchants shout out from behind stalls with an array of products in one of the most traditional neighborhoods in Florence. Different ethnic groups join together in the large outdoor market of San Lorenzo and in the Central Market, a vast multi-floored building. Visitors are bound to fall in love with this area and in particular, with its variety of food, especially those focusing on Florentine dishes as well as international selections. Nobody leaves San Lorenzo without a shopping bag in hand or with an empty stomach.
