We stayed for 3 nights (December 7/10, 2013) in hotel San Lorenzo. I booked a triple room (53 euros/night/room), for me and my friends, and I wrote to the hotel asking them for either a smoking room, a room with balcony or easy access to a smoking place.
We reached the hotel, which is located on the second floor of a villa in the San Lorenzo area. There is no elevator, which was a bit of a challenge for me, with my heavy suitcase (my friends know how to travel lightly, a secret I never discovered). At the reception we had a wonderful surprise. Instead of a triple room we had one floor only for us. It was the third floor, connected with a second by a secondary, narrow staircase, where there were two rooms (a single and a double, no 10 and 11) and a bathroom. I had the single (since I tend to wake up early and I was the only smoker of the group) while my friends shared the double. Rooms were under the roof, with ceiling windows, old wood beams supporting the roof, with nice furniture and all gave us the impression of going back in time. It was extremely nice and comfortable. One of the rooms had a refrigerator, both had coffee making facilities and I got a hairdryer from the reception. Both rooms had good heating systems, which was important since we were there in December.
Breakfast was in the small room near the reception, more varied than the usual continental breakfast you usually get in Italy hotels. There was free WiFi access in the breakfast room.
The location was perfect also, in the San Lorenzo area, within walking distance to both the train station and the central Florence (Duomo and Piazza della Signoria), with plenty of good and not very expensive restaurants just around the corner. We were all very happy with our choice and we will return there when visiting again Florence.
