About this Hotel

Price From $110

'Hood San Lorenzo, right by the neighborhood's signature market for leather goods and souvenirs. Hotel Mario's is also near the Santa Maria Novella railway station and the Fortezza da Basso, a massive, Medici-era exhibition center that holds trade fairs and events.

The Gist A smaller, 16-room guesthouse-style hotel, Mario's seems homey and quiet compared with some of the city's more centrally located spots. Wrought-iron headboards and massive antique armoires decorate the rooms, while amenities include fresh flowers and fruit. Terra-cotta floors, oak-beamed ceilings, and large red rugs and tablecloths decorate the common spaces. A tiny but cozy breakfast room is elegant in its simplicity. Online reviews noted the hotel's proximity to the train station and its helpful, personable staff.

Free Wi-Fi? Yes.

Credit Cards Accepted AmEx, MC, Visa.

Details Singles from $78, doubles from $110, triples from $142; all rates include breakfast.
