Although this is not meant to be one those fancy hotels, in my opinion everything was great. The staff was kind, the room has lots of space and it has a nice modern furniture, was very clean, and the breakfast had fresh and delicious food and the bed was very comfortable. The location and price were the best things. If...

We loved the concept of offering reasonably affordable and adequate accommodation in unreasonably expensive Florence centre. The hotel is very small which is certainly an advantage. The staff is great. The internet connection is by far better than in most of much more vaunted hotels, major chains included. Some comments - tea/coffee facilities would be welcome as would bedside lamps.

This b&b is a good place. I liked it but my boyfriend less than me. The rooms were very spacious and clean. The shower was nice too. The breakfast was pretty good. The staff would prepare our coffees/ fresh orange juice which was nice. The savory foods were quite limited to bread with ham and cheese. There was also cereal,...

Florence was our second stop of the trip so we started to feel our tired feet from walking and were hoping that the hotel would be closer to the city center. It is very close to Academia but about 10-15 minutes walk to San Marco and longer walk to Ponte Vecchio and left bank of course. It may not be...

We were looking for a nice but not crazy expensive place to lay our heads for the night after a long day touring vineyards about 40 min. Out. This was the perfect place! We arrived late at night around 10 pm and they had emailed us all the instructions as there is no one working the desk this late. It...

Just a 5 minute stroll from San Marco and the Academy, this is a great choice for a family weekend in Florence. It's really a smart modern B&B rather than a traditional hotel (no room service at night), and was a particularly relaxing place to stay. Our triple room was big, bright and very clean, with a lovely new bathroom...

The hotel is difficult to find as it lies within a larger building and has no obvious signage just a small plate on the door buzzer, but once you've found it the rooms are large and airy, clean and well appointed. You're also an easy walk to all major attractions in Rome. Breakfast simple yet satisfying. Wifi nice and fast,...

We really enjoyed our stay here, the staff were friendly and the room was large and really comfortable. The room was clean and breakfast was also very good with lovely coffee and fresh orange juice. It is only a 10 min walk from the cathedral. The only fault I had was the outside didn't look like a hotel when the...

Was in a great spot- close to the action, but far enough away from the noise that can come with it. Staff were warm and very helpful (even organised taxis and no-wait passed to museums and galleries). Breakfast was great- they even supplied gluten free snacks for me. Rooms were spacious and clean and decorated with modern art. A great...

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.
