This hotel has a perfect position.
It takes only 7-10 min from the station on foot and 7min to Duomo.
And it is located on the quite big street so it's easy to get there and not dangerous.
It has an elevator from the first floor( not the ground floor) so it's fine to carry my big lugage.
My room doesn't have a private toilet but it was ok.
Cause there are only 3 rooms with one toilet and the toilet was managed very clean.
The room is very warm and spacious.
An luckily I had a nice view from my room.

At the frondesk, there was a man with a bold hair.
He was not kind and very rude at me everynight i saw him.
That was the only thing that i can't give a better review.

My sister and I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights and it was quire wonderful. The best part about the hotel is the location. It is situated right behind the Medici Chapel and about 10 minutes away from Firenze Station - S.M.Novella. Everything and I mean EVERYTHING is within walking distance. The best way to explore Florence is on foot and there is no better place to stay than Lorena (The Duomo is about 5-10 minutes walking). The gentleman on the reception was most helpful with information regarding the sites and the ways to come and go with bus numbers etc. He even made sure that our train reservation to Pisa was intact and we had the correct time of the train. The hotel had a very warm feel about it and this was just right. The rooms were small and were extremely basic as were the bathrooms but if you are on a budget, this is the place to come! :)

The location is perfect, right in the centre and close to the train station. The staff are very helpful, provided us with all the information about the city that we needed and were friendly and welcoming. There are good dining options just outside the hotel plus a few small supermarkets plus Mercato Centrale a couple of minutes away. Our window overlooked the entrance to the Medici Chapels, a lovely view. We really enjoyed our stay.

Nice little place, big rooms, multiple beds in room, ideal for families and friends traveling together. Mini fridge in room but no kettle for a cuppa.

Note that entry is via a flight of stairs, no disabled access. The area is quite pricey, was pleased to find such an affordable clean hotel.


Genuine 5 minute walk from train station, I managed it easily with 2 wheelie suitcases. BTW I'm unfit and overweight.

We stayed two nights at Hotel Lorena while we were in Florence. Overall, this is a get-what-you-pay-for kind of place. The man at the desk was nice, spoke broken English which could lead to some miscommunication, but overall we got the idea of what he was trying to communicate. When we got there he loaded our license plate information for our rental car into the city's online system so that we wouldn't be ticketed for driving into the city. He gave us a receipt for proof in case anything happened (you have three hrs to get registered in the city system after driving into the city without a permit). They asked us to keep our keys at the desk when we came and left so that they wouldn't be lost but they would leave them sitting on the counter for a while after we dropped them off. You are not able to get into or leave the hotel from 2 am to 6 am as there is no attendant at the desk to give you your keys. They did provide shampoo and soap in the bathroom. However, there was hair in shower when we got to our room and toothpaste rings and remnants in the reusable cups in the bathroom. The hair dryer provided is very old fashioned. The beds were hard and there was stray hair on our "clean" sheets. Otherwise the room was clean.

All that being said, if you are looking to save money and have a basic hotel that is a step above a hostel, this is the place for you. If you are looking for anything luxurious this is not it. It was a good location to see all the big sites and it was just fine for what we needed.

Room Tip: We had a room that slept three on the floor where the restaurant is, and it was very spacious.
