Very nice place to stay 15-20 min walk to the main attractions, staff was very helpful with little tips how to get from on place to another, and where to find place to eat. Rooms are quiet and clean with nice updates compare to other places we stayed. Also, have a parking garage, you need to pay extra , but...

Small, cosy hotel with wonderfully helpful staff. Always found it easy getting around the city from the hotel. Ask staff about the steak restaurant that is 5 mins walk from the hotel and does amazing Florentine steaks!

Nice hotel with friendly and helpful staff. Good location (10 min walk from the tourist attractions) and offers a nice selection for breakfast. Only downside the room was a bit dated and our bathroom wasn't in the best condition (stains in the bathtub) and we could hear every time the room above flushed the toilet

Excellent breakfast, clean room (no rug which I appreciated). Very small tv with reception problems. About a 20-25 minute walk to the train station and the historic center. Very pleasant staff. Overall a good tourist class hotel (but not a luxury hotel) good value for the money.

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.
