We were looking for a Hotel near the Duomo area in Florence, and used Trip Advisor. We came across the Hotel Macchiaioli in Florence. They had great directions on their site as we came by train. It’s a short 1 1/2 blocks from the Duomo. The hotel is on the 2nd floor (called the 1st in Italy). It looks like a palazzo inside, high ceilings, painted panels on the ceilings; there are a few salons for sitting in. The dining room (Breakfast) looks like a palace, very well decorated. The breakfast was very good as well. The room was larger than one we had in Rome, comfortable bed, good size bathroom, and quiet. Plus free Wi-Fi.
The staff was fantastic; they couldn't do enough for us. They printed tickets we ordered, carried our bags down, gave excellent restaurant recommendations, and cappuccino to order at breakfast. They show a 3 star rating but I believe they deserve better. If you book direct with them you receive a 5% discount off the rack price. They offered to store our bags if we wanted to take a few days and go somewhere else. We are definitely going back there.
