“very low Budget stay”
Reviewed 7 January 2014 via mobile

Run down hotel, we stayed with our teens and were all in one room with a fold out bed, the bathroom was dirty and the bedding (blankets) were about as old as the hotel, the breakfasts were poor , and our room was very noisy hearing all the pedestrians outside (we were on the 2nd flr) recommend for young travellers only not families.

Stayed January 2014, travelled with family

Stayed for 2 nights. Hotel is at an ideal location, nice hotel in a category, the staff was very nice and helpful, gave us few good suggestions what to see, where to go and when.
The room itself was very big, very outdated interior but, that’s the case we saw with most of the 3* hotels in Italy we have stayed.
All in all if you are getting a good price comparatively, book it.

The hotel at a walking distance to the train station, the Duomo, San Lorenzo, Vechhico Palace, River Arno… etc. Has a large number of rooms and lobbies in each floor. There’s no exceptional view per se but you can see how close the main attractions are from the top floors. Food is fine. However, there is only 1 lift. The staff is friendly. You can find a large number of restaurants around.

Room Tip: Ask for a large rooms

Stayed here for a few days in Sept.Wonderful helpful staff, great location near the SMN station and great breakfast.Rooms a bit shabby but then you dont really spend much time in your room when you're in Florence.Would advice a stay for people on a budget.

The only positive point about this hotel is its location because it is located near Florence main train station as well as some historic and famous buildings. The furniture is outdated but tolerable. The most seriously negative point is that because of old installations and equipment you will probably face terrible problems. We stayed there for two nights and at the first day we could not use warm water to take shower because the installation was out of order and it was really a disaster. Unfortunately the staff just said that "It is not our fault!"

The best thing about the San Giorgio is its location near Florence's main train station, Santa Maria Novella. Our room had mature furniture in the Tuscan rustic style which is not to my taste. Our room overlooked a small unused courtyard but this made it very quiet at night. The bathroom was small with poor fittings, particularly the shower with no dish to put the soap and shampoo in. No English language TV. Breakfast was OK but no fresh fruit, tough rolls and vanilla flavoured croissant. Perhaps a Tuscany speciality but not too my taste. Tables weren't cleared and they have an odd policy with knives. They leave spoons and forks for you to collect but you have to wait for the waiter to bring coffee and your knives. Perhaps its Health & Safety getting in on the act. Short walk to most of the cities sights and restaurants, and very close to the main market which is quite interesting.
