We stayed here last year when travelling Italy. The room had lovely original features adding to the charm. Marco was a fab host and was super helpful. It was also really close to central Florence making it easy to see all the sights. Would definitely recommend.

The biggest strength of this hotel is the location, which is very central to the major attractions in Florence. Our room was disappointing in that lighting was very poor, 2 of 3 outlets did not work which made charging all your devices difficult, fuse blew, no real chair(s) to sit in, no wifi I our room (#8) although it worked...

This is B&B is in a pretty good location not far from the central market and north of the historic city center and river. We walked everywhere without any trouble, but one day when we walked to Piazzale Michelangelo and other locations we had walked over 11 miles which may be too much for some people. The neighborhood is a... More

I have to echo the remarks of other reviewers on this establishment. We had 4 days to visit the wonderful city of Florence with all its charm and history. We realised that we'd made an excellent start by choosing this place to stay. We walked with our suitcases from the drop-off place in the main square by the station; this... More

An easy taxi from the train station. Marco(the host) is extremely informative and his passion for his home city shines through. He has great local, cheap restaurant tips and gives you a detailed map of all the sights. The room was beautiful and didnt lack anything. A great place to stay when visiting Firenze.

Accademia House is ideally located; the taxi journey took approximately 20 minutes from the airport and it took us a leisurely ten minute stroll to get into the historical heart of the city. The Palazzo Medici-Riccardi was the first sight that we stumbled upon and there were plenty of shops and cafes to visit whilst walking down Via San Gallo.... More

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.
