“Florence - HoneyMoon Trip -”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Please get a bigger SIGN :), i spend an hour walking by the street and couldn't find on top it was raining.
The rooms are bit old, the bathroom seems to be renewed lately.
The safe in the room is small it do not fit your laptop or iPad as well it was not working.

Location is good, 3-4 minutes away from the train and bus station.
Breakfast is a bit poor comparing to other hotel we used in italy.

I hope the above is helpful for other travelers.

Cheers

Room Tip: Choose a room with a balcony, you can enjoy the houses and the landscapes.

Breakfast is provided and you are within walking distance from the main train station. There are 2!! Ice cream shops in front of the hotel .
You are within walking distance of the Cathedral of Florence.

Book your train tickets for a half day trip to the town of Pisa. There’s nothing to do there but see to see the leaning tower. You can book tickets based on the number of hours that you plan to spend in the town.

I stayed in this hotel last year for few nights. At first we were a bit confused in finding the place since it's tucked in between small streets in Florence. It didn't look that big from the facade but the room was quite big actually.
The staffs were very hospitable and helpful, breakfast was also good. It wasn't something fancy but I was really happy with everything.
I guess the hotel was quite old but well maintained, big bed and roomy bathroom area. the room was surprisingly quite, considering the location is in the city center.
The train station is very close to the hotel, and there are many good restaurants around the hotel.
I would recommend this place since it's within walking distance to major tourist attractions, like the Cathedral, Santa Maria Novella (just across the street) and of course the famous leather shops. oh you have to visit San Lorenzo market, unfortunately during summer many shops would close, but worth the visit. and the beauty of it, you can walk from the hotel.

We were welcomed warmly by genuinely helpful staff who made our stay most enjoyable.
The rooms were tastefully furnished and air conditioned and the hotel's central location made our exploration of the City on foot very convenient .
It's position also meant that a short walk takes you to the Santa Maria Novella rail terminus allowing easy access to the rest of Tuscany

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights during a recent visit to Florence. The location was very convenient, but unfortunately the room was not that flats. The pillows were the most uncomfortable I have ever had in a hotel and even with 3 pilled on top of one another they still felt like a flat ple of bricks. The breakfast was nothing to rave about and the wi-fi also very average! Perhaps choose this hotel if you bring your own pillow! I'm still trying to get rid of my sire neck!

When we arrived at Pisa Airport we were pleasantly surprised that we could catch a coach outside the arrivals hall straight to Florence Railway Station for only €6 each, and the hotel was only five minutes walk away. The staff were efficient and friendly, the rooms were clean and had air conditioning included in the price of the hotel, very necessary in July.
At breakfast although continental, there was plenty of choice.
The hotel was within easy walking distance of all the famous sites in Florence, and I would definitely recommend the Hotel Machiavelli to anyone who wanted a reasonably priced hotel with easy access to airport and sites.

The Machiavelli Palace stays at about 300 metres from Firenze Central Train Station and about 15 minutes walking from The Dome - it's very central and you can go by foot to everywhere in Firenze.

The conditions are not that good... the chambers are old, the toillets are not good at all and the breakfast (that is mandatory to "buy" in the package) don't have almost anything...

Didn't like much this hotel!
