Bed - wasn't a proper double, had a board between two singles, quite uncomfortable Shower - didn't work properly, little power and kept turning to the right so had to hold it in my hand otherwise it leaked through the glass panel. Sink - didn't hold water when plug was down. BASICS,!

Excellent breakfast, clean room (no rug which I appreciated). Very small tv with reception problems. About a 20-25 minute walk to the train station and the historic center. Very pleasant staff. Overall a good tourist class hotel (but not a luxury hotel) good value for the money.

Great hotel, very helpful employees. They have bikes to explore Firenze but they are really in disrepair. The hotel and the breakfast are 5 stars and would go there again. Walkable to all the nearest sites

I d say about a 15-20 minute walk to the Duomo from the hotel. Nice room and nice breakfast. Friendly staff. Access to bicycles was a bonus for getting around Florence.. Unexpected city tax at check-in.

A beautiful authentic looking hotel with a perfect location. There was a terrace next to our room with superb views of the church bell tower and in the opposite direction a view of the countryside. The service was excellent as well.

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.
