Hotel Machiavelli Palace

Reviewed 17 November 2013 via mobile

This hotel is for budget stay, the location is good, it is quite clean meeting minimum standard. The staffs approachable, free breakfast-simple one with some croissants, hams and cheeses. It is close to the main train station, on the street with a handful of variety choices of restaurants. The main downside is the stinky smell from the toilet! I have to keep the window open even it is cold outside! overall is good for the budget stays!

I appreciated the proximity to the train station / airport shuttle drop off point. There are a lot of pick-pockets around the train station, but as long as we were cautious- we had no problems. And the hotel is very near the central market, lending to wonderful fresh food restaurants nearby.
We did not request a room the away from the street the first night- big mistake. The second night we were away from the street and it was soooo much better.

We recently stayed at the Hotel Machiavelli Palace in Florence, the location was perfect...a 5 minute walk from the train station. The staff was very attentive to all of our needs and the room was perfect. What was surprising is that the location of the hotel is central to everything in Florence...5 minute walk to the Duomo (The Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore) and just around the corner from the Mercato Centrale with all the outdoor vendors and restaurants. We would definitely stay here again.

The Machiavelli Palace was very well situated for sightseeing. The staff were friendly and check- in efficient. However the enormous room for 3 overlooked a busy street (via Romana) and we were grateful for double glazed windows at night. The bathroom plumbing was old, poorly maintained and needed a good overhaul. This was mentioned to the Reception staff. Overall it was pleasant for 2 night stay.

Quaint hotel, no frills, but comfortable with good hot shower. Front desk was attentive, friendly, detail oriented, answered our ever need with kindness and a smile. Super close to train station, Duomo, safe to walk around at night

This comfortable hotel is literally five minutes walk from the main railway station (where the airport coach also arrives). Our twin room was comfy and clean with a wee balcony with a view out to the Tuscan hills.
Staff at reception were very friendly and helpful and the Piazza del Duomo is only ten minutes walk away. The streets round about have plenty bars and restaurants, and quite a nice atmosphere in the evening (not the slightly sleazy vibe you get in many cities near the station.) Would recommend this hotel for its convenience and service.

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Machiavelli in Florence! Our room on floor 5 included a lovely balcony with two chairs and a table featuring beautiful views of the tops of the Duomo and the Medici Chapel. It is just blocks to the Central Market where we picked up cheese and wine to enjoy from the balcony. A short walk to the sites in the city, the train station, and the museums. The hotel staff presented us with a tasty fruit plate and bottle of wine for our enjoyment. The staff were friendly and helpful and the room was very clean. Our only concerns were the small size of the shower stall and the lack of wi-fi in the guest room (although it is available in the lobby). The breakfast was delicious. Would definitely recommend this hotel to friends.

Room Tip: For the best views request a 5th floor room on the east side of the building.
