“Wonderful place to stay and everything only minutes away...”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

I have been here for five days and have found the location excellent as I don't have a car and need to walk everywhere. The station is only about 15 minutes away and the shops and markets and probably 5 minutes away. The place has large rooms and they are cleaned every day with the house cleaners coming in. Breakfast is a typical Italian breakfast with pastries and cake but they have fruit juice and toast if you want. Great coffee is also served. It is close to restaurants and there is a nice little eatery around the 5 mins in Via F. Pacini Il Maestro which has great food for lunch and dinner and you can bring it back as there are facilities to heat food etc.

Room Tip: I was on my own and had a large bedroom with an entry hall area and also a decent size bath and lots...

The moment I walked into Locando San Marco I felt warmth emanating from the place, starting with Ilaria who was there to welcome me when I arrived late in the evening. I was hosted in one of the smaller rooms (the room with the yellow walls on the website), which has a small entrance hall that leads one into ether the bathroom or the sleeping area; the space was more than ample for me as a single traveler. In addition, I was located right next to a kitchen area that provides all the supplies one needs for basic dining and drinking needs. While the building and grounds are lovely (the building circles around an interior garden area that must be lovely to sit in during the warmer months), the real charm of this place comes from the care Ilaria and Lorenzo put into it, including all the details. Both the individual rooms and shared spaces are gorgeously decorated in mostly antique furnishings – everything is classic, simple, and refined. I arrived in late November and noted immediately that they kept my room welcomingly warm and provided a down comforter on the bed. Every morning I awoke to a wood fire burning in the breakfast-room fireplace and a big cup of cappuccino. I would return after a day out to a fresh supply of drinking water and an immaculately clean room (as the entire inn was kept). I love hot showers and was treated to them under a rainfall showerhead. In short, Ilaria and Lorenzo provide the fine and comfortable living experience at its best.

I was hoping for a restful retreat during my few days in Pistoia and, I must say, Locando San Marco exceeded my expectations. I will definitely be returning.

We stayed for 5 nights in the Locanda San Marco and were very impressed by the service (delightful staff extremely knowledgeable about Pistoia and Tuscany) the accommodations (gorgeous) and the breakfast bounty we had to chose from every morning. A truly relaxing visit in a beautifully preserved and managed hotel. We recommend it highly!

Room Tip: All the rooms were beautiful.

Upon our arrival, we were greeted by Lorenzo, the very friendly and hospitable owner of B & B Locanda San Marco, who upon check in, immediately assisted in transferring our luggage up the stairs (there is no lift) to our room on the first level. At the same time, he pointed out the lovely outdoor patio sitting area and also the coffee and tea making facilities (along with internet facility) which was also on the first floor.

The building (which is located in the historic centre of the old town) has been tastefully renovated but still retains its old worldly character and our very spacious room was no exception, having a lovely mural painting on the ceiling with matching and appropriately themed furniture. The room (including very large bathroom) was spotlessly clean with an extremely comfortable bed, air-conditioning and free Wi-Fi being available.

Having settled into our room, Lorenzo then personally accompanied me in the car and directed myself to the free open air car parking area which was a couple of hundred metres away. He was also more than happy to advise on restaurants, sights etc. and was an excellent host.

Breakfast (whilst quite basic) was more than adequate and comprised fruit, yoghurts and cakes.

In conclusion, we had an extremely pleasant overnight stay at B & B Locanda San Marco and have no hesitation in recommending for a pleasant stay.

Locanda San Marco is situated in a little palazzo tucked away behind the Piazza del Duomo. It has been sensitively refurbished so that, with all of the modern conveniences, you still enjoy the atmosphere of an old stately town house with wooden ceilings and terrazzo floors. Lorenzo and Ilaria are wonderful hosts who make you welcome and treat you in the morning to a feast of Pistoian confectionery which makes you forget the temptation of the English breakfast. Complimenti ai òspiti!

We so much enjoyed Locanda San Marco, because the hosts Ilaria and Lorenzo make you feel very welcome, comfortable and supported. Lorenzo will show you where to park your car for free when you arrive and assist you in any matter, Ilaria will make sure you get all you wish for a perfect breakfast.
The historic building is renovated with a lot of love and taste, the rooms are well maintained, the beds are perfectly comfortable. If you can get a room with terrace access it is even nicer. And you are close to the center of town.
The breakfast is a class of its own, not only because of the home-made marmelades and cakes.
We ended up extending our stay in Pistoia at the Locanda San Marco and want to return sometime.
