We just loved the Hotel Giglio. The Staff were so accommodating. They helped us with our train tickets, laundry service, luggage storage, dinner reservations and other needs that came up during our stay. They are in a great location, especially since our daughter was studying at Gonzaga in Florence around the corner ;). We walked to everything - Duomo, Uffizi,... More

We were a little taken aback by the entrance to the hotel. You enter into a dark foyer with a large staircase and sign saying the elevator is to the left. What you find is the smallest elevator you'll ever stand in behind a door and a cage. Weird, but pretty cool. Once you get to the second floor you... More

This is a small hotel. About 5-10 minutes from the train station by cab. Check in was a breeze. You will be greeted by a huge door and a flight of stairs. They do have an elevater that can only fit 1 person with 2 luggages so that's how we brought up our big bags, via the lift. Check in... More

Lovely hotel with very friendly staff but it doesn't stand out when looking for it for the first time. Via Cavour is an important street leading to the Duomo but Hotel Giglio is not on the ground floor and the sign only says "Hotel". There is a small elevator which is handy for luggage but I usually took the stairs.... More

This was a good hotel which offers value for money. It is in a great location about 10 minutes walk from the Cathedral & Uffizi Gallery. The staff on reception were welcoming & very helpful. The rooms were clean & comfortable - we would certainly stay at Hotel Giglio again.

Decent room. Nice staff and a great breakfast. Location worked for us as our daughter was nearby. Room was clean and large (got the quad). Shower was ok but the bathroom was quite large. Bed was comfy.

The entrance of the hotel is a little ordinary and blends with the rest of the buildings. The elevator is old, small, and creepy so we took the stairs. The staff was nice and very helpful. The room was simple, bed was old but ok. They turn off the air when you aren't in the room so we always came... More

Stayed for one night. We had a large room that over looked the cobbled street below. Bathroom was very clean. The hotel is within walking distance to the train station, restaurants, and Duomo. The staff are very friendly and go the extra mile to ensure your comfort.

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.
