First trip to Florence and we really enjoyed our stay at Il Guelfo Bianco. We had a room on the 5th floor - there are only a few - and it was spacious (almost like an apartment) with a huge bathroom (by European standards) and a view of the Duomo out one of the windows. It almost felt like a...

This was our second stay at Il Guelfo Bianco. We returned because we loved the location and found the hotel to be even better than on our previous visit. The service was lovely...friendly and accommodating. The new Caffe Bistro provided us with a pleasant pause in the courtyard while we sipped our prosecco each afternoon. The rooms were comfy. The...

Recently travelled to Florence with my husband and best friend. We stayed in the apartment suite and were blown away be what we found. Two large bathrooms, a kitchenette, dining room, washing machine. It could have easily slept about 7 people. The staff was friendly, the breakfast was fresh and wonderful, the bistro was equally marvelous and the location could...

Great atmospheric hotel within easy walking distance of everything. We had a room on the first floor at the back overlooking a lovely garden that was so quiet and comfortable that we overslept on the first morning! The teenagers had a room on the ground floor which opened on to an internal courtyard which was stuffy and the air conditioning...

Charming hotel with tons of character. Clean, great proximity, and even better service. Daniele and Francesco gladly answered all of our questions. They made great restaurant suggestions and even made the reservations for us. The attached caffe - bistro was an added bonus. Really enjoyed the quality of the breakfast offerings. Sat outside in the evening and had great beverage...

We spent 5 nights at Il Guelfo Bianco and it was just perfect. The location couldn't be better - within walking distance of everything in Florence. When we booked the room, we opted to upgrade to a junior suite - definitely worth it. We had a large bed, an ample bathroom, and room to spread out. It was less a...

was just as good as the first. Extremely helpful when booking and although we knew what to expect you are always wondering if it was a one-off and the euphoria of visiting Florence swayed you. However the accommodation, buffet breakfast and general ambience is enhanced by the genuine helpfulness of the staff and especially Antonella and Julia, who remembered us...

Staying in San Lorenzo

Neighbourhood Profile
San Lorenzo
San Lorenzo’s lively merchants shout out from behind stalls with an array of products in one of the most traditional neighborhoods in Florence. Different ethnic groups join together in the large outdoor market of San Lorenzo and in the Central Market, a vast multi-floored building. Visitors are bound to fall in love with this area and in particular, with its variety of food, especially those focusing on Florentine dishes as well as international selections. Nobody leaves San Lorenzo without a shopping bag in hand or with an empty stomach.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our hotel is right in the city center, between Piazza Duomo and Piazza San Marco , few steps away from Accademia (the museum where you can see the famous DAVID by Michelangelo). It's housed in two late 15th century building next each other. All rooms are different in size and position - executive rooms have a standard size - superior rooms are larger - de luxe and junior suite are very large with a sitting area. We have rooms overlooking the courtyard, gardens and several rooms overlooking Via Cavour which is the main street but 70% pedestrian and so it's not too noisy. All rooms have triple glasses and double windows. WI/FI available in all the rooms and the drawing rooms and it's free of charge if you have your own laptop or i-phone or i-pad. Bistrot restaurant next door "IL DESCO" open every day (12 till 10,30 pm but on Sunday it closes at 3,00 pm) with good menu' all day long (many organic products directly by the owner's farm. ... more   less
