“Great Location”
Reviewed 20 November 2009

We choose the hotel because of its location. Just a few mins walk from the train station. Just around the corner you had the market with a wide selection of leather goods, and jewelry.
Very close to the Doumo and within walking distance to all sites (Florence is very small).
Many great restaurants near by.
The room was a good size and clean. The staff friendly and helpfull.
Breakfast was ok, could have been better but didn't expect much seeing as we had already been to Rome and knew that the Italians are not good at breakfast. Avoid the coffee machine.
The only thing I would critisize is the the bathroom. By all standards it is TINY, especially the shower.

This hotel was very close to train station, walking distance. Florence is very compact and all the top sightseeing spots are very close to each other.

Though this hotel was nothing fabulous, it was a good value and had a nice location - very close to most Florence sites and close enough to the train station that walking here with our luggage was no big deal. As long as your expectations are not for a luxurious hotel, this is a good bet.

If you look from the street, the place doesn´t look much pretty but inside is very nice (at least our room was). It is not far from train station, which was important for us because we traveled by train and it is also near the historical center - that is something we appreciated too. Breakfast was very good and staff was friendly and helpful.

The location of the hotel was very convenient as we were travelling by train. The room was clean and met all our needs and expectations. The breakfast was included and although only continental was more than ample. The staff were helpful - wifi availalbe but quite expensive. Local internet cafes were better value. Plenty of shopping and eating all within walking distance. Easy walk to galleries and river.

Close to the station (200 m) and the sights. If you want a clean, budget hotel then this should tick the right boxes. The room was clean but the decor was dull. The shower in the bath is a tight squeeze and the plumbing is noisy. Breakfast was continental and ok. Staff very helpful. Nice terrace on the third floor with poor views over the rooftops but is great if you want to bring your own drink ( boose shop in next street) and relax with some sun. Check out the L'Brincello restaurante on same street as hotel. Turn left out of the hotel and on the same side about 50m two blocks up. Great atmosphere and food with good prices.

Best hotel I have been in Florence the staff is very efficient, breakfast in the morning is full of many choices from sweet cakes to fresh fruit, ham and cheese and many others good foods!
The position of the hotel is very central, you may walk in short distance to the major attractive of the city and upon you come back, you may sleep and stop in a beautiful room of Machiavelli!
I suggest to anyone to sleep there, I find everything very good, the rooms are clean and the staff are very polite and helpful, you may ask everything you need, they are always at your entire disposal.
