The two-star Hotel Accademia is a solid budget choice near the San Lorenzo market and Medici Chapel. With spacious yet spare rooms, stained-glass details and comfortable common areas, it makes a comfy home base.
The 19 rooms are done up with simple wooden furniture and solid and brocade bedspreads. Large prints, some floral and some replicas, add a bit of life, and all rooms are equipped with air conditioning, minibar, satellite television and free Wi-Fi. En suite bathrooms are clean and modern, with blue and white tiles. Some have new showers, while others have a combination tub and shower.
The Accademia is located on the busy pedestrian street Via Faenza, but retains a sense of quiet inside. The plant-filled entry is almost an indoor courtyard, marked by a winding staircase that leads up to the stained-glass doors of the second-floor reception.
Additional charming spaces include small sitting areas, an internal terrace and a spacious breakfast room. The Accademia also has a quiet, old-fashioned bar that serves coffee and alcoholic beverages.
Breakfast is included. Note that the hotel is located on the second floor and does not have an elevator.

About the Accademia 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.
