Excellent location very near to the duomo and about 15 minutes from the central railway station. The room was OK with a sink inside and the bathroom was shared, but we never have to wait for it. All in all very good place to stay in Firenze!

Hotel Sampaoli is clean, comfortable and cozy. Each room is nicely furnished in different colors and designed to make it feel like you're staying with a friend and not at a hotel. The ladies who run/own it are kind and friendly. They provide excellent customer service and are great at answering questions about the city and various tourist attractions. Ask...

I stayed there for 2 weeks and I was happily surprised with the facilities; but mostly with the super friendly 2 lovely girls that not only own the hotel but they operate it too. The location is superb you are literally 2 min walking distance from il duomo. The rooms and the entire hotel are super clean and have many...

I was very hesitant when we first arrived at Hotel Sampaoli, which was not the easiest address to find. We walked up the narrow stone stairs to the first landing, rang the bell, the door opened, and we were delighted with the friendly response of the young women who greeted us! Our room was small and faced the street. There...

This Hotel was perfect for my time in Florence! The girls running the hotel are very friendly and helpful and added a wonderful charm to the Hotel. I had a small private room with a large window, writing table and wardrobe. The space was perfect for what I needed. The shared bathroom was always clean and I rarely had to...

Centrally located in Florence (a convenient walk to just about everything), I stayed here for one night in late September 2013. The two young ladies who run this place are friendly and fun and they gave the hotel a sunny presence. The room was spare but tastefully appointed and even had a small patio terrace that overlooked a rooftop garden....

Outside dont seems good, but rooms are clean and nice. If you are looking for a luxury place, this is not for you, but if you need a clean and excellent located place, and you prefer spend your money in better thighs go for it. Only five minutes walking from duomo!!!

This hotel was not a bad choice. The best features were the good location and the helpful two girls who run the place (although they were sometimes hard to find during my stay). My room was clean though basic, and the shared bathrooms were of average cleanliness. I probably would look elsewhere next time but certainly don't regret my stay.

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.
