“Wonderful hotel in fantastic location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2011

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

Stayed 4 nights - wonderful hotel, great service, perfect location, delicious and plentiful breakfast (breads, cheese, cereals, croissants, tomatoes, coffee, juices, yogurt - wonderful!). They were so nice, helpful and friendly that it made our stay really special. By the time we left the staff felt like friends. Would definitely stay here again, and hope to do so soon!

After reading reviews on TA we decided to stay here and we were not disappointed. Upon our arrival, before we could even start up the steps, a young man (Paolo) appeared and carried our very heavy pieces of luggage up to the check-in desk. The same kindness continued throughout our stay. The young lady (Francesca) behind the desk was so sweet (and before we even told her our names) she said that she had a message for us from my husband's aunt (who lives in Florence), and offered us the use of the phone at the desk.
The hotel itself was beautiful and had a great history. The room was nice and we enjoyed the complimentary breakfast each morning. The area where we had breakfast had a small balcony that we walked out onto and it gave a great view of the street in both directions. It was great to watch the traffic and the people passing by. Another huge plus is that the hotel is located in a perfect area. You can walk to almost everything.
The hotel doesn't have a lot of rooms so book ahead if you are even considering staying here.
We will definitely stay here again on our next visit.

We were very impressed by the generosity of attention from every staff person at the hotel. We had several requests which were not connected with the hotel and the attention to all details for us was fabulous.Our room was bright, as I requested when reserving. The room and bath were very clean and well maintained. The hotel has been recently renovated and therefore modern bath facilities made it very comfortable and clean. Charming public areas and bar area was a nice place to relax with a glass of wine. The dining room for breakfast was nicely arranged with fresh linen clothes. We enjoyed the delicious coffee, fresh and stewed fruits, yogurts, cereals, croissants, assorted breads, rolls, cakes, and of course the meats and cheese selections. The location is a short walk from train station or a quick taxi ride. We enjoyed being able to walk to the Duomo in less than five minutes; it is a great location for all of Florence sightseeing and shopping. We would definitely recommend this hotel. It is very good value for the rate charged.

You are right, our guests appreciate not only our bedrooms but also our common area in which, as you wrote, one can drink a glass of wine and relax. Thank you

We were in a 22-day trip through France and Italy and for my B-day we'd be at Florence. We chose the Hotel dei Macchiaioli for some reasons - location - pretty close to every important thing any tourist would like to do in Florence, and also, for the price, affordable.

It was a great surprise - it is a small and beautiful hotel - it used to be an important florentine family home, with afrescos in the ceilings, wooden gigantic doors, great rooms! - friendly, ready-to-help staff, a lovely breakfast salon, with fruits, several options, I really liked! By far the best hotel of the trip!

I want to thank Alessandro for trying to help us in every second and in every thing we wanted to do!
