“Great choice!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2011

Don't want to pay the exorbitant prices for a hotel in Florence? Hotel San Marco is a short train ride away and a great place to stay. The rooms are decently sized and clean; the staff is very kind and accommodating; the breakfast is good; and you are a short walk from one of the original biscotti factories where you can buy fresh biscotti! Hotel San Marco is a great treasure!

I found the San Marco quite basic in terms of the room and bathroom furniture and breakfast however there was a small gym (some equipment didn't work) and a quiet roof terrace. The rooms had air conditioning and with shutters on the window although on a main street it wasn't noisy. The hotel had wifi access (free I think) and a pc in the reception area that I used free of charge. It is a family run hotel and very friendly and helpful. Situated within a few minutes walking distance of the beautiful town of Prato and just 10 mins walk from the main train station..

Prato has been described as an industrial suburb of Florence, but the convenient location of Hotel San Marco in the old central city of Prato helped make our stay very enjoyable. Convenient to good restaurants, the meeting place of my husband, and some touristically interesting sites, the hotel was a comfortable place to stay. What made it special was the personl service of owner Alessandro Latrucci and his wife to every detail of our stay. When there were no cabs at the railroad station to pick us up, Mr. Latrucci came and picked us up himself. He then directed us to a good pizza restaurant open at the late hour of our arrival. His attention to how we should get to our hotel in Florence, where to find an ATM and other questions was beyond the call of duty. In a moderate priced hotel the hospitality made all the difference.

We found this a very pleasant place to stay. I was on holiday but my husband was at a conference. Other colleagues and spouses stayed in the same hotel. We were made to feel very welcome. Nothing was too much trouble for the owner, Alessandro Latrucci, and his wife, Maria Teresa. When we wanted to make bookings for the Uffizi and Academia in Florence, Alessandro did this for us on the telephone, saving us both money and inconvenience.
The rooms were clean and well ordered. The breakfast was good value for this medium priced hotel, with excellent service. There was even an iron and board placed on each corridor to safely iron your clothes. Chocolates were placed on the pillow each evening when the covers were turned down. These were the kind of well thought out touches that made guests feel valued. Very highly recommended.
