Great Location at a Great Price!
Posted Nov 1, 2016 on Hotels
We stayed at Hotel Lorena five years ago and we couldn't have asked for more. The location was perfect, the room they gave us had a great view, they offer free Wi-Fi, they have specials that include free breakfast, and the staff was very helpful and friendly. All of that was the same this time except our room was quite a bit smaller.
Since there is so much to see and do in Florence I don't care to spend much time in the room so things like luxury linens, antique furniture, free toiletries, TV, room service, etc don't do anything for me. It's really just a safe place to bathe, sleep and store my baggage while I go do other stuff. There are really only three things I look for in a hotel in a place like Florence: Location, Price, and Service/Cleanliness. On those three fronts, Hotel Lorena is the best!
The highlight is definitely the location. It's four blocks from the train station, three blocks from the Duomo, one block from the San Lorenzo Market, caddy corner to the Medici Chapel, ten minute walk from the Piazza della Signoria, and there is a grocery store around the corner. The hotel is surrounded by tons of shopping, restaurants, and sightseeing attractions.
If you're traveling on a budget and want to stay in a great location in a clean, safe hotel, look no further!
