Very, very nice apartment and best location with excellent service. Best what you can get in Florence. Very clean and everything worked fine. They even managed transport from airport too, but taxistation is just behind a corner, if you want to use that.

Very, very nice apartment with excellent location and wonderful service and all! It's really worth of every euro. Only the elevator was slow and hot and small, but if you can use stairs, it doesn't matter at all.

We had the loveliest visit to Florence staying here. The apartments are lovely and spacious with gorgeous Windows in a great location. Very walkable to the major sites and great restaurants. Francesca was so lovely, friendly and helpful. We had a great time and can't wait to return to Florence and stay here again!!!

Palazzo Alfano is the loveliest place you will find to stay in Italy for such a fair price. Our apartment was spacious with every amenity we could ask for and is decorated beautifully. We felt like the Medicis in our castle. It was so nice to have room to spread out and actually relax instead of being in a cramped... More

My husband and I spent 5 nights at the Palazzo Alfani and had an excellent experience. Our apartment had plenty of space and was very clean. We reserved an apartment on the courtyard which was amazingly quiet for Florence - and we had a lovely view of trees and foliage from the dining table. The apartment is in a great... More

My wife and I stayed at this apartment for 6 enjoyable days. The host, Francesca, is wonderful. She lives in the same building and is very easily accessible. She really made us feel at home at one of her apartments. The apartment we stayed in is spacious and knit. It is not our first stay in Florence and we like... More

The apartments are situated in a palazzo in the historic center of the city, in front of Michelangelo's David and a few hundred meters from the Duomo. Owner Francesca is a very kind and helpful host and her husband a practical taxi driver (from an to the airport). I would suggest guests however not to take every day the proposed... More

This place is wonderful! Francesca is the owner and she is so nice and kind! She was able to help with every question and concern I had! The rooms were brand new and very clean! It is also an added bonus to have a kitchen and a living room with the room.

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.
