We enjoyed our stay at Hotel del Macchiaioli. It is a great location in Firenza, nice hotel, and very accommodating staff. Paolo was an excellent tour guide. We'd recommend this hotel to anyone.

My wife and I enjoyed our 4 night stay at Hotel dei Macchiaioli. The location is great being just a 5-minute walk from the Cathedral. The room was quiet and relatively spacious and had an updated bathroom. Closet space was adequate and the room had a safe and minibar fridge in case you are in need of a late night snack. The hotel is an easy 10 to 15-minute walk from the train station. The hotel is on the second floor of a building which houses another hotel and a museum of sorts on the first floor. We arrived with heavy bags, but they obviously have cameras because we were greeted by a very friendly person who helped with our bags. All of the staff was very helpful and answered our questions. A hearty breakfast is part of the package and the breakfast room is beautiful. Florence's major attractions are all within a 5 to 30-minute easy walk. I thought this was a great value and would recommend it highly.

In the middle of the city, walking distance to all main attractions, quiet, clean, value, good size room with modern bathroom, helpful and friendly staff, good breakfast, free WiFi, bar ! Well, what more do you want. Excellent small hotel with all the fore mentioned aspects. Plus, look at the dining room and lounge area ceilings ! This hotel shares a building with another hotel and a small museum and cafe. Stair access only ( not too many) with helpful staff to help you with everything. Great value.

The Hotel dei Maccioili is Fantastic! Room was clean, quiet at night, in the center of town and up to date bathroom. I only stayed 1 night but I could easily stay more nights. We had a rental car and the hotel has a service that picks up the car so you do not park it. When you want it call 10 minutes before and the company brings you the key parking the car in front (GREAT SERVICE).The next morning the breakfast was great and I would recommend this hotel to a friend.

We took 3 nights in this hotel for a stay in Florence. The location is perfect, right in the middle of Florence, a few minutes away from the Cathedral Santa Maria del Fiore and the heart of the Classical style with Renaissance paintings on the ceiling and walls. The room was very clean and quiet, the staff very friendly, the breakfast fine for three stars. We decided to go for their deal to manage our car which can be challenging to park in the center of Florence. They have a partnership with a garage and deal with your car for 24EUR a day. Not cheap but hassle free. The one thing that could be improved is the wifi connection which was quite poor in our room. Other than that, a place i would warmly recommend.

Thnak you.

Sorry for the WiFi but as we wrote already we have now a brend new WiFi, no problems anymore :)

The 24 euro per day for the garage is more or less the rate that also other garage have.

You are correct we are only 430 steps away from the Duomo :)

I am so glad we found Hotel dei Macciaioli! It was an easy 10 minute walk from the train station past the Duomo (look for the correct street numbers though - I think the business numbers are red - we missed it at first!) When we started up the stairs to the entry, Paolo appeared to greet us and help us with our baggage. The reception was warm and friendly, the room was modern and comfortable and the included breakfast was a treat. Communication by email was easy, prompt and helpful. As an added bonus, we scheduled a private tour with Paolo who is also a licensed guide. We only had one day in Florence, so wanted to make the most of our time there. Paolo communicates his passion for art with a style that makes it interesting for anyone. He was sensitive to our travel exhaustion and customized the tour to meet our interests and schedule. He also recommended a place for the must-have Florentine Steak and the best gelato in the city. If we get a chance to return to Florence for a longer stay, we will definitely stay at the Hotel dei Macchiaoli.

I had booked this place for 2 nights based on a Trip advisor research. The hotel is clean, quiet with good Wi-Fi reception and close to Duomo; plus the staff was very friendly and the mattress is solid giving you a good nights sleep. There are a few negatives as well: no elevator for luggage, no coffee machine in room, (cheap looking) tiled floor in bed room, very little shelf space in bath room to keep toilet bag etc., and a very uninspiring breakfast that had ample variety but lacked freshness. The coffee machine in breakfast room dispensed luke warm coffee. Overall, for the money charged I thought this was not as good value compared to my stays at Venice and Rome, and so my rating would be closer to a 3.5 (not 4)

We thank you for the suggestions.
We apprechiated it very much.

We can not change the fact that we don't have an elevator. In an historical building (like our building) is not easy to get an authorisation to put a lift.

We will think about offering a better braakfast and we will do it ...for sure !! Thank you for let us know.

We hope to be albe to show you in the future that a stay at the Macchiaioli is absolutelu Worth for the money :)
