The location isn't great unless you are familiar with the city bus system. The walk is much more than 10 minutes to the Duomo; and if you get lost like us it can take up to 45 minutes. They do not have a restaurant, only a microwave to make food in the bar. The staff is not very friendly or...

We stayed here for a few days and were very impressed. The service from all the staff was excellent and the reception was always available to help. The room was great and well finished and breakfast was well provisioned (although the fruit was evidently tinned). The main negative for us was the expensive wifi - 5 euro for half an...

Wow..this hotel was such a treat to stay in. The place was beautiful, clean, spacious, and cool but the front desk staff was so incredibly helpful. We stayed 3 nights and highly recommend it. The bed was comfortable, the breakfast was lovely. No one in Europe does eggs and bacon well but they get an A for effort. The rest...

After staying at numerous hotels in England, France and Italy we were disappointed in this hotel, the little extra's were not there, every thing was an extra charge. We requested a bucket of ice after a long hot day sight seeing, because the wine was not purchased within the hotel they would not provide a bucket with ice. ( In...

The hotel was good for us and we liked it. The reception staff were friendly and the breakfast had a good choice and was enjoyable. If you want to be in the heart of Florence then this hotel is not for you, it took a good 15 min to walk in to tourist parts but this suited us. There was...

Certainly recommend this hotel, rooms excellent, clean and well kept. Location just off the main road so not noisy and a short (15mins or so) walk to the main sights. Short taxi ride from main rail station, walkable but not recommended with luggage. Desk staff very pleasant & helpful, recommended nearby bus to centre for those who did not want...

The San Gallo Palace was our favorite hotel of the six we stayed in during our trip. The room was clean and quiet, and the staff was courteous and very helpful. The hotel location was excellent for walking to all the attractions in Florence. The hotel had an attractive outside garden courtyard for relaxing too.

The hotel is about a 10-15 minute walk away from the major sights, and even though it is located on a busy traffic circle, our room was very quiet (facing terrace on side street. The room was nice - with a real double bed (instead of two twin beds pushed together as one often finds in Europe), and nice bathroom....

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.
