A wonderful place to stay in Florence - central, beautiful, charming, friendly. The rooftop terrace was a treat and the view from up there amazing both in the morning and evening. Breakfast was great and prepared with care and love. I will be happy to come again!

We booked 3 of the 6 rooms at the very beautiful Antica Dimora Johlea and couldn't have been happier with our stay there. The rooms were all fantastic, all had 4 poster beds and were traditionally decorated and furnished. The staff were very friendly and helpful providing advice and recommendations about where to eat etc. The breakfast was plentiful and...

They say never go back, but our second trip to Antica Dimora Johlea was just as pleasurable. What can I say? A warm welcome, charming rooms with decor and furnishings carefully and lovingly chosen. The tourist trail of Florence is always a little overwhelming, so the opportunity to drop out of the bustle, recharge your batteries on the lovely little...

Although one needs to climb three very tall flights of stairs, unless you can manage to use the tiniest of elevators, it is well worth it once you are inside the flat. The rooms are charming, comfortable and airy. The service is great. On the 4th floor there is a small living space, breakfast bar, and dining area. This leads...

This lodging is more like a bed and breakfast in terms of feeing. It is in a quite area of the city but easily within walking of the major sites. It is in a tall stone apartment building and comprises 6 rooms off a main and well appointed receptions area. The rooms are small but there is a common area...

You can't find a better spot in Florence. An easy walk to the city's attractions, this is located in a quiet neighborhood away from the noise and tourists. The staff was outstanding, helping us with reservations, tickets, and tours that were very difficult to get. We enjoyed our stay and recommend this hotel.

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Harmonious, elegant, and full of light, this Florentine residence is situated on the top floor of a beautiful 19th-century palazzo. The rooms, all uniquely designed and decorated, have walls in soft hues of natural earth and mineral pigments. The curtains and the canopies of the four-poster beds are made out of precious oriental silk, while pure linen from Florence's renowned, artisan fabric manufacturer, Antica Tessitoria Busatti, is used to decorate the breakfast hall and living rooms. The bathrooms are done in Carrara marble or in hand-painted tiles. Perhaps the nicest surprise, however, is the rooftop terrace, from which you will be able to admire Brunelleschi's dome, Giotto's bell tower, the crenellated silhouette of Palazzo Vecchio, and the magnificent bird's eye view of Florence's historic center. ... more   less
