Hotel Machiavelli Palace

Reviewed 27 May 2014

Hotel Machiavelli Palace is a very good hotel. Comfortable rooms. Excellent breakfast.
Staff is very friendly; and reception staff gave good tips for lunch (closeby Minimarket).
For us it was very important that the hotel is centrally located. The pedestrian area starts around the corner and everything is in walking distance.
We will certainly stay in this hotel again in june 2014.

This quirky hotel ticks all the boxes for a convenient tourist hotel in Florence - easy access to all central sights, friendly and helpful staff, clean and comfortable rooms (the beds are great with crisp fresh linen), a perfect reasonably priced base for exploring this beautiful city.

This 3 star hotel is centrally located, in reasonable walking distance to the main station, the Duomo and the Uffizi.The Reception staff are welcoming and efficient. Breakfast is continental style, but more than adequate. Our room was quite large, the issue we had was temperature, even in late April. The air conditioning unit in the room basically didn't work, at least it didn't do anything but pump out warm air. the solution was to turn it off and open the window. The hotel corridors were also very warm. But if you want a budget stay in the centre of Florence, this hotel will do the job.

Hotel Machiavelli is centrally located on a safe street convenient to all the major attractions. Clean. Good breakfast included. Free wifi, but it is generally rather slow. The rooms and bathrooms are small but typical for Europe. Be aware that the showers are very tiny.

The hotel was located close to everything. Hardly a 5 minute walk to the train station and only a 10 minute walk to the Duomo.
Room was quite dark with a small bathroom, but it was fine. The room was quite warm so went to put the air conditioner on but it only seemed to blow hot air. We simply opened the window as soon as we got in at the end of the day and that seemed to cool the room down enough before bed time.

A bottle of wine was provided to us on our third night which was lovely but unfortunately neither of us drink wine.

Breakfast was fantastic! Cereals, pastries, meats, yoghurt, fruit, juices and a coffee machine were a few of the things available. Plenty to fill up on for the day ahead!

Staff were lovely and were happy to help where they could.

I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Florence!

This is an extremely convenient spot in Florence, close to most everything. Clean and well appointed, with an accommodating front desk staff. It's an easy walk to the train station, and there are several restaurants in the area to choose from.
