A beautiful small hotel situated just outside central Florence. Had a very good twin room overlooking the garden. It was super quiet, clean and comfortable. Marble bathroom with bath and shower, tasteful furnishings and good breakfast. Three minutes walk from the Hoppa bus stop. The staff deserve a special mention. They were all excellent. Would use this hotel again as...

A very nice hotel, polite helpfull staff, very clean, with great room service, and a nice bar in the hotel, and the breakfast room is very nice.A good location, not to far from the Arno, about a 15 min walk. Recommended .

A very nice hotel albeit around a fifteen minute quick walk from the city centre. Unfortunately this doesn't make it away from the hustle and bustle as the hotel is in direct view of the Piazza Della Liberta which is a four lane racing circuit around the St Gallo gate. We had the suite with the balcony overlooking the aforementioned...

Dear guest, thank you so much for your suggestions; they are so helpful to improve our best offer. Regarding air conditioning we need to specify that our system is centralized but in each room guests are able to manage temperature and switch on and off. Unfortunately during your stay in Florence we were not licensed by law to switch on...

Stayed here to be away from hustle and bustle of busy tourist city centre. Had a very good room on 3rd floor with a balcony. Very quiet at night so no problems sleeping. Clean comfortable room but unfortunately only a shower - no bath. Breakfast room in basement was fine with a decent range of food. The piazza Liberte outside...

My sister and I just came back from Florence where we stayed at the San Gallo for 7 nights. The room we had with two twin beds was very small. About a foot on either side of the bed. However, the bathroom was large and clean and just right for the 2 of us. The beds or should I say...

Very Nice hotel. Good size Rooms for city. very clean rooms too. Friendly staff. When we booked we knew that the dirt centre was a 15 min walk. Although this was not a problem for us. It is worth considering if you may be considerably tired after a long days walk. Also the location is near a very busy roundabout....

We really enjoyed our stay here for 3 nights. The service was great, the breakfast was lovely (good choice and always re-filled) and although the location was slightly far from the city, it was only a 10 minute walk at most from the centre. Also the staff in the hotel were very friendly. The condition of our room was nice...

Let me start by saying my reviews of our Italian hotels will be based on each other and not on American standards. Most all hotel rooms in Europe will be smaller than your standard American rooms. That said this was the largest room we had in Italy by far. This was also the quietest room we had (we were upgraded...

Have stayed at many hotels but this rates as one of the best. The main difference is the professionalism of the staff. Not only were they kind and generous but always went the extra mile. The room was spacious and clean (superior room). Good location - a 10/15 minute walk to the centre and regular buses. Excellent restaurants nearby. Thanks...

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.
