The three-star Hotel Azzi is housed in a former monastery on a quiet street in the city center. And that's only the beginning of the heavenly features at this budget-friendly abode.
The Azzi’s 18 spacious rooms are large and simply decorated in blues and yellows. Couches, bedspreads and curtains come in a heavy blue brocade that could stand to be updated, but there are also some shabby-chic touches and original antique furnishings. Air conditioning, television and free Wi-Fi are available in all rooms, and some rooms have balconies (ask ahead). En suite bathrooms are surprisingly large.
The Azzi is nicknamed Locanda degli Artisti (meaning “Artist’s Lodge”) for a good reason. Its hallways and common spaces feature myriad artistic touches, including temporary modern art expositions.
The extensive reception and lounge area is likewise, ahem, art-fitted, and features usable musical instruments, including a piano and an acoustic guitar (small concerts sometimes take place here). The comfy upstairs lounge leads out to a sunny terrace (note that as of early 2011 there is some construction happening on the terrace).
Downstairs is a cozy wine cellar and coffee bar with arched ceilings and long wooden tables. Breakfast is served here for an additional fee.

About the Hotel Azzi 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.
