Located about a 10-minute walk from Florence's main action, the three-star Hotel Mario is a pretty package: a mid-range hotel with all the trimmings. For those who crave creature comforts, even the peak double room rate may be worth it (considering the charm, comfort and convenience it affords) . That said, Mario's doubles do start on the low side.
Housed in a 17th-century Renaissance building, the Mario sets an elegant scene with dark wood, arched doors and stained glass. A dark, "medieval" atmosphere prevails in the hotel's 16 rooms, which are done up in authentic antique style. Wood-beamed or vaulted ceilings accent tasteful red-and-gold brocade bedding. Rooms are equipped with air conditioning and satellite TV. Bathrooms are long, narrow, and shiny.
Guests kick off their days in a breakfast room resembling a 14th-century banquet hall, and then pop right outdoors to a vibrant part of the city, where everyone (including actual Florentines) shops. Hotel Mario's is cute, clean and worth the splurge.
Breakfast is sometimes included in the room rate (check when booking). Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel for an additional fee.

About the Hotel Mario's 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.
