    Cheapest place I could find during the summer months...host was nice and recommends places to see and eat that are worth it. Rooms have a\c but if u leave the windows open Mosquitos will come in and feast on everyone in the room. Breakfast is served in the room and is pretty tasty!!

    People are allowed to smoke in their rooms, so the whole place smells like cigarettes, blah. However, if you close your door you shouldn't smell it that much. The bathroom is tiny, too!!

    Fantastic location. The owner had very good English, was friendly & very helpful. Very clean, comfortable and enjoyed the breakfast which is served in your room. Good value for money.

    Due to it's central location - close to the Dome - the tower bell went off 7 days a week at 7am in the morning and was very loud!! There are about 70 stairs up to the b&b - no reception desk - just a buzzer system to get in so when you first arrive wait for the owner to come down as he has a key to open the elevator to take your luggage up. You can use the lift once you get your set of keys so saves having to climb the stairs every time you come back in.

    Our host, Ludivicio, was very friendly and well-informed about the city and offered some very good tips on restaurants, galleries and gelato. The b&b is in a fantastic location and is very central yet, with church bells excluded, was very peaceful during our stay.

    Breakfast could be requested at anytime yet, when we request early breakfasts (7.30ish), these were sometime not ready until after eight. However, when we ordered breakfast for after 8.30-9am, they arrived promptly. Inadvertently, this offered the great opportunity to explore some smaller local tourist attractions prior to breakfast before starting the day in mid morning.

    The location was fabulous very close to the train station and in the center of town. The view from the room was great and it was very clean, wifi was available, and Lodovico was a great host. The breakfast reclassified the word continental breakfast, the pastries were hot and flaky and delicious. We had a fabulous time! We would definitely recommend this hotel!

    I absolutely loved this bed and breakfast. It was a perfect location right about the leather markets, the owner was a sweetheart, and the breakfast in our room was delightful (warm croissants, tea, orange juice). I stayed here for 3 nights with my sister and we felt really comfortable and at home at this B&B. I highly recommend San Lorenzo for anyone traveling to Florence for a few nights.

    Central location with budget price with good B&B breakfast, great coffee.

    It was OK nothing really wrong.

    The location was good and the room was clean. We didn't stay at the B&B (even though that's what I booked). When we arrived we were walked to the Hotel because we had booked a Superior Double room with private bathroom and apparently the Hotel was nicer than the B&B.

    As mentioned, we had booked a Superior Double Room with private bathroom and got the attic with a share bathroom. The hotel staff told us that the other room that we would share the bathroom with is empty but 2 people checked into it the following day so even though i paid for a private bathroom i had to share. The bathroom was a combined toilet/shower too so whenever someone had a shower the entire room incl. toilet was soaked. Our room key also opened the room that 2 people moved into on the second night so i can only assume that their key opened our room too so there was no security. We couldn't stand up in the room cause the ceiling was too low (i'm 1.68cm tall). There were no windows in the room and not enough lighting so it was really dark all the time. I also paid in cash when i arrived including the tourism tax and asked for a receipt but the hotel staff said he couldn't give me one then. I asked for a receipt about 5 times over the next 2 days and kept getting the brush off. When i went to check out they said they had no payment registered for me and I had no receipt to prove that I had paid. I had to argue before everything was straightened out. This place is the worst place I stayed in in my 6 weeks in Europe and it completely changed my view of Florence. I couldn't wait to get out of there. If you want something secure and a place that won't rip you off then don't stay here. I will never stay here again.
