We stayed three nights at Hotel dei Macchiaioli, before check-in Paolo greeted us at the front door to assist with our bags, he then proceeded to check us in and also gave us a map of the city with some restaurant suggestions. From the first minute we were there the service was fantastic and was the same, if not better during our stay. Our room and bathroom were quite large and very modern and clean.
Breakfast was great, there was a lot of variety including croissants, toast, cereals, cheese, coffee etc and the breakfast room was gorgeous with frescoes on the ceiling to enjoy whilst having breakfast. There is a lounge room you can sit in if you don't want to sit in your room that has a computer and books on Florence you can read.
I needed shopping advise so Francesca pointed me in the direction of a leather shop owned by her friend Massimo, he looked after me and treated me like family...including the discounts!.
The location of the hotel is great, everything is walking distance, we went on the hop-on hop-off bus on our first day to orient ourselves with the city, this was well worth it.
If you go to Florence you must stay here (stop looking at other hotels on T.A) and make sure you go up to the Piazzale Michelangelo at sunset, it is gorgeous and also where I got engaged!!
It was a fantastic stay and would return in a heartbeat and recommend the hotel to all our friends.
Thanks Hotel dei Macchiaioli
