Centro, Tuscany Italy
A simple but clean and comfortable option in a slightly run-down but central location – with many of the popular tourist attractions close at hand. Not for those in search of elaborate communal areas and facilities.
Tired looking traditional corner building with a pollution-stained facade and wooden window shutters which is boasted to be once the home of Raffaello; there’s a small mini-market at ground level and a small intercom entrance.
Property type: Hotel
The unelaborate interior is limited to an intimate reception desk in the corridor and a rather small functional breakfast room that sometimes doubles as the bar – some original paintings throughout the property adds a little charm.
Area Type: 500 yds north of Piazza del Duomo, on a narrow side street in a low-key area of San Lorenzo in the city centre, prone to graffiti and fly-posting. There’s a good choice of shops, cafes and restaurants in the immediate vicinity. The attractions of the Ponte Vecchio are ¾ mile away. Bus stop 150 yds. Train Station 650 yds.
