Although the budget-friendly two-star Hotel Fiorita is located steps from the Santa Maria Novella train station, it leaves all the noise and ruckus outside.
The Fiorita’s 22 rooms are painted yellow and peach and topped with decorative molding. Sweet county-style furniture complements the sunny color schemes, though the bedspreads appear a bit dated. In-room amenities include air conditioning, minibar and flat-screen TV. Bathrooms are private, and almost all have been recently renovated. They have gleaming box showers with detachable shower heads.
The Fiorita, which is located on the third floor of an early 20th-century building, has been owned and operated by two friendly brothers since the early ‘80s. The hotel retains many of the building’s original architectural features, including the painstakingly restored stained-glass doors.
The window-lined breakfast room is located upstairs, practically on the rooftop (be careful on the old narrow staircase!). It’s an ideal place for enjoying the included breakfast and incredible views.
There is a computer and printer station in the lobby, and Wi-Fi is available throughout the property, both for an additional fee.

About the Fiorita neighborhood
North of the train station is one of Florence's most colorful neighborhoods. San Lorenzo is home to much of the city's foreign population, many of whom man the stands at the bustling local market. The area is the cheapest place to shop and snack in the center of the city. The streets around the market are home to kebab stands and Asian markets galore, as well as cheap clothing and shoe shops.
