Location, cleanliness, beautiful, friendly. This may be the best value I've ever experienced in a hotel. Basically, you are renting a luxury, fully appointed flat in a 16th century Italian residence, with a delightful and knowledgeable concierge, directly (and I mean directly) across the street from the Academia museum. The flat was large and airy w full kitchen, marble bath...

I would stay nowhere else in Florence. The residence is very centrally located, directly across the street from the Accademia, and a 5 minute walk from the Duomo. Francesca is very pleasant and accomodating, with maps of Florence and restaurant suggestions. The apartment consists of 2 large rooms, one a living/kitchenette, the other the bed room. The bathroom is off...

Four of us (two very well-traveled couples) stayed in the 2-bedroom/2-bath deluxe San Giovanni Suite for eight nights. The place was spacious, clean and very well appointed with all of the modern conveniences. The Palazzo is located directly across the street (a mere 10 paces) from the Accademia Gallery where "David" resides and barely a five minute walk to the...

We stayed for 8 wonderful nights at the Palazzo Alfani. This was our third trip to Florence and the accommodations at the Palazzo Alfani and the owner made this the best trip yet. The suite was beautiful and windows looked out on a central courtyard or the Accademia Gallery. From the windows you can also see the Duomo. The apartment...

We stayed for 3 nights. The building is centrally located. Our apartment overlooks a small garden, it is a homey, spacious, well equipped and very clean apartment. It has a good size kitchen but we feel that the bathroom is rather small with no bathtub. The living room is large and airy, we love the free wifi internet, and would...

My family and I just returned from spending 5 nights at Palazzo Alfani in May.

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.
