A Magnificant Stay

Hotel was centrally located, and the staff very accommodating, including recommending restaurants in the neighborhood, and arranging for reservations at the Uffizi Gallery. The hotel was well-maintained and clean and comfortable; the youthful staff never hesitated at giving directions to sites of interest.

A Florentine Gem

Lorenzo is a wonderful, charming hotel off the beaten path in Florence. The room was comfortable and well-appointed, and the breakfast was just perfect: fruit, cereals, breads, cheeses, eggs, bacon, etc. Future guests should be aware (as we were) that it is located approximately 15 minutes outside of the Florence center (walking). We actually enjoyed this part as it gave us extra exercise and made us feel like part of the neighborhood. We will definitely return and recommend it to all of our friends!

There is a supermercato nearby on Via Ruote - great for bottled water and other snacks to have on hand.

Exceeding our Expectations!

This hotel was the most reasonable priced hotel we stayed at in Italy and it was by far the most luxurious one! The room had at least 15 foot ceilings, wonderful decor, a jacuzzi tub and bidet in the bathroom, spotlessly clean and an excellent breakfast that was included in the price! It also had a lovely salon and garden to hang around in and private parking within the garden gates. Very quiet and secluded especially for Florence! It was within walking distance of all major museums and close to restaurants. I would definately stay there again without any further thought!

A Great Value

This hotel is a great value! It is a short walk (maybe a 10 min. walk) from the center of the city. The room was spotless and spacious. The shower was great. The hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating. There is also parking on the grounds for a small fee. However there is no restuarant. We enjoyed our stay very much.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

I had a car rental and after getting to Firenze realized i should not have rented one. We took 2 days and used for a rest day on walking. First we drove to Cinque Terra, and 2nd day we drove to Sienna. the staff was very helpful with maps and geting us away from tourist. This helped us experience a much more real Italy.

Nice but no wifi

The staff were super friendly and helpful. The wifi didn't work in our room for the 4 days that we were there. I don't think our room was the only one. The staff apologized and said that they have been trying to fix it. The wifi did work in the lounge and in the garden. The room is kind of small compared to the North American ones. But it's clean and nicely air conditioned. We were busy exploring the city anyway. Major attractions are all within walking distance. The breakfast (free) selection (continental) was good and they make fresh coffee for you.

Really quiet but...

A very nice place, super quiet, clean, friendly staff but: 1. It really is a hike to the attractions and not a great walk either. 2. There are high tech systems controlling the lights and A/C but they were not reliable in my room. The A/C had to be reset from the front desk. The reset set the max temp at 22 celcius. The bathroom light mysteriously went out while I was taking a shower. Then it came back on by itself, then off, then on--you get the picture. 3. No wifi in my room--had to go to lobby.

partially restored, safety concerns

Florence was magnificent. The hotel staff were very helpful but it is a long 20 min walk before you even get to the tourist parts of the city. The staff advised me that by the time you walk to a bus stop you are almost where you want to be. The hotel renovation is NOT completed & as I was in an annex there was no outdoor lighting through a narrow pathway with an uneven surface. The pathway is not covered & no umbrellas were supplied in the rain. The television is VERY old & no english news shows are available.
