In its prime location in a busy piazza, mere steps from the San Lorenzo Market, the three-star Hotel Palazzo Benci is a splurge-worthy little treat of a hotel.

The hotel’s 35 mid-sized rooms come in pleasant shades of teal green, with clean-cut, basic furniture. While the lobby and garden are bright and light-filled, rooms are more simple, but with all the standard amenities, including air conditioning a minibar, satellite TV and telephone. The overarching motif is at times a bit stuffy, though in a sweet, grandmotherly way. Bathrooms feature sparkling blue tiles. Some even have bathtubs, a big plus after days of shuttling across cobblestones.

Housed in a 16th-century mansion that's been restored. A fancy, marble-floored lobby and art deco bar and lounge set a glamorous first impression, as does the professional staff.

The inner garden is, hands down, the best thing this three-star has going for it. It's a green oasis of lush tranquility, in a super-central and thus highly traveled hood.

Continental breakfast is usually included in the room rate (check when booking). Free Wi-Fi is available throughout.

About the Hotel Palazzo Benci 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.
