The hotel itself is located quite easily on Via SanGallo, Firenze. However, the hotel is on the 2nd storey and they have no bell boys. If you have a lot of luggage you can get into a bit of trouble hauling it up the narrow, dark staircase since they don't have an elevator. The rooms were basic but tidy and... More

Lovely stay. Fantastic location with good service. I had a pretty room with it's own bathroom, not alot of extra frills, but none were need. It was clean and comfortable. Travel light when you come here as there are a lot of stairs if you have big bags.

We have complained and they just said "we have rented the bathroom to another client, they paid for it". What a service??!!! Other bathroom we could not lock... More

I had a trouble free and pleasant stay. Great value for the location. Clean bathroom. Comfortable bed and, always important in Florence, a mosquito screen on the window! I'd stay again. It should be noted that there are a few stairs to climb.

No customer service at all. No one is there to assist you. Staircase was too narrow. The room was given on 3rd floor which meant additional stairs to hand carry suitcases, no help available as its run by 2 girls. Toilets were stinking. Towels were not replaced. Had to follow up on mails and whatsapp. We were asked to leave... More

It looks a lot more like a hostel than a hotel. Our room seemed clean, but the bathroom smelled really bad. Reception was most of the time empty and there was a note from the staff to call the given number in case of emergency. You really need to tell them the time you're checking in, because some people who... More

Staying in San Marco

Neighbourhood 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.
