We greatly enjoyed our stay here for 8 nights. This was a room within a suite of rooms in a residential building on a quiet street, within a15 minutes walk from all the main sights. It isn't really an hotel but, when visiting an historic city like Florence, do you really want to stay in the sort of standard hotel... More

I loved this place and hope to return to spend more time exploring Florence. I stayed in Room 5. Although it was right on the street, I did not hear any noise.

I had booked this hotel looking at reviews. However, first of all, it’s not a hotel and it’s like renting a room in old house which was tried to convert in hotel room.

This hotel is located just enough off the beaten path so as to not feel touristy but close enough to everything that my wife and I walked to everything. The hotel room was very nice and clean, as was the bathroom. The staff is very kind and helpful. Overall, it was a great place to stay!

This small hotel is so charming, it is located in an old building a bit far from center and has only 10 rooms. We had room# 8 which was really beautiful.

This is a terrific lodging choice and a place we would definitely stay again.

We stayed here for 2 nights. Beautiful building and fairly quiet street, just 5-10 minutes walk from the central Duomo Piazza. Very friendly hosts, helpful advice, almost like staying in their home. Pleasant breakfast, a little cramped in the morning though. I would definitely recommend to a friend and return for a second visit. Thank you Residenza Johanna I! :)

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.
