Perfect for us!

Everything was good. Room was big, staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was quite comprehensive and with plenty of food. Only note was a pretty bad smell we had in our bedroom, not sure where was coming from, but was quite intense.

Great stay near the train station

A very convenient stay near transport, markets, eating places and with all main attractions within reasonable walking distance. Staff were helpful but not necessarily very friendly. The room was very spacious with a window overlooking all the action-lots of fun and very interesting. The passage and lift could have been cleaner. Finding the room was along a long winding passage with two sets of steps. Breakfast was good-nice selection of food and the breakfast room staff were very friendly and helpful. Would stay here again.

The first room that I was assigned had a faulty light switch in the bathroom. I was moved to another room that was near the stair and elevator. There was a lot of noise both late at night and in the early morning that made sleeping difficult. Also the WIFI would not work with windows operating systems. I asked about this on two occasions and did not receive any help. It seems to be a known problem. If I had not had an IPHONE, it would have been really bad.

Convenient location

This hotel is close to the train station and in a good location for exploring Florence. Room size was average and not a lot of room for our luggage. Overall the hotel is fine but nothing special.

Very good

Second best hotel that we stayed in Europe. Big room. Our bathroom had a view of big duma. Of course the toilet flashes kind of different. Shower is surrounded by curtains. Location was great. Everything was in walking distance. I would love to stay again. Price was not that expensive.

Machiavelli Palace hotel review May 2012

This hotel is very well located, within five minutes of the train station and within five to ten minutes of some major sites. The staff was pleasant and accomodating during our two night stay. There was only one extra outlet to charge devices such as cameras, phones and iPad. It was the only hotel during our 8 night trip to Italy where we noticed any bugs. Little black round bugs were noted at least twice on the beds. When crushed the bugs were very bloody -
