My husband and i stayed at this hotel in September and it was absolutely fantastic. The location of this hotel cannot be beaten. 5 min walk to santa maria novella station and a 10 seconds to get to duomo. Absolutely best location ever. Gabriella at the reception is wonderful and she ensures you have a comfortable stay. She was extremely... More

The tourist house battistero is easy to go to everywhere for sightseeing, especially Doumo. (1~ 2min by walk) Sometimes I stopped by here during the tour and here is the best location to take a rest becasue it is very near from Doumo. The room is quite huge for stay 2 people. The bed is big for good sleep and... More

Stayed here a year ago and recently returned. Every bit as good as last time. The location is perfect and the place a real bargain. It is almost like a self contained appartment. Look out for a sister property opening soon.

Traveling from South Korea, I wanted to try out guesthouse other than Korean one. Have compared all the price for single rooms which I prefer and it was fair. Even though I stayed for only 1 night, the owner had set up everything prior to my arrival(directions, maps, keys, misc explanation) which made my trip so efficient. Thank him for... More

Great value for money. Though my room was small, it was very clean and literally a few steps away from the beautiful duomo. I was travelling alone and not disappointed whatsoever. Travelled in October 2014 - I'm grossly late in writing this review but it had to be done.

Stayed July 2014. The reception gave us a larger room that came with a kitchenette for our five night stay. The room was the largest one our trip to Italy which was nice. Wifi did not really work in the room, nor did our 3G. The hotel is conveniently 10mins from the train station and you can stroll your luggage... More

Central location. Very convenient, it's really close to the Duomo. The bed is large and comfortable. However, everything in the room seems quite old, and the room itself is not very clean. Also, it's very noisy during both day and night...we can hear people downstairs (which is a busy street) talking, yelling, laughing even in the midnight......

First off - this place is sort of no frills, from a service standpoint. The owners that service it are not on site 24/7. They are there mostly in the morning. They depend on savvy travelers, ready to follow the directions provided to gain access to your room. Having said that - the directions are very clear, the location is... More

With only 2 nights in Florence we wanted a central location, close to everything yet within walking distance of the station - and at a reasonable price. We got it! The room was huge with a huge bathroom too. Everything worked well, it was spotlessly clean, and the bed was comfortable. As our room wasn't quite ready we went round... 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.
