I stayed here Dec 9-16 2012. I was impressed by the personal attention provided at this small family hotel. I felt safe and well taken care of. The morning breakfast was great. I will stay here again. Great location.

Seriously, I can't imagine a better location for our trip to Florence. It was close to the train station and the tasty eats at Mercato Centrale as well as grocery stores one block away. The Basilica of San Lorenzo with Medici Chapel and Michelangelo's Laurentian Library was under our window. This is a cheap place (we paid 50 euro per night for a double) with a tiny bathroom (don't even think about staying here if you're large), but there was plenty of hot water and a comfortable bed and the staff were friendly and helpful. They even have free wi-fi!

Really close to train station which was perfect, less than 5min walk. We had a really large room with a huge bathroom which made a nice change from the smaller places we'd been staying elsewhere in the same price range. Our room didn't have amazing views from our window just a view of a wall, so the room was a bit dark but we didn't spend much time in there during the day anyway! Fantastic light blocking shades kept the room pitch black in the morning perfect for a sleep in! Breakfast costs 5 euro, it was adequate with friendly service, but there are plenty of great restaurants and cafes easy walking distance and I'd advise going there instead. Best thing about Hotel Lorena was the location - you can walk to everything. I'd stay there again

Stayed there for 7 nights, one night in room with shared bathroom, and 6 nights in a room with a great view on capella Medici and the piazza.
The staff is really friendly, the place is clean, and coffee for breakfast is delicious.
However, the market is right next to the hotel, so it can be quite noisy, but we did not mind.

We were in Florence for one quick night and the price for location at Hotel Lorena is hard to beat. Keep in mind you get what you pay for - so don't expect anything too fancy. This is a basic no frills hotel which was totally what I expected so I was content. We booked a room with a shared bathroom and it was clean and quiet. Our room overlooked a quaint street with the top of the Duomo visable just a few blocks away. Since we were only there for 1 night we wanted a hotel within walking distance from the train station as well as the main attractions of Florence which is exactly what we got. If you have mobility problems you should know there is no lift from the ground level to the reception on level 2. We did not have any issues with this. I would stay here again - glad I found something affordable right in the heart of the city.

We stayed for three nights. The staff was friendly. The location of this hotel was excellent. Breakfast was good.
While there was wireless Internet it was very annoying that you had to log on every time you wanted to connect.
Our bed was squeaky but comfortable. The room we had was spacious and comfortable with a good view over the Medici Chapel. The bathroom was spacious with a full tub and shower.
Overall this was good value.
