Hotel Machiavelli Palace

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Single rooms are a bit too small. All else was great! Breakfasts were hearty and staff was accommodating. Well located. Well cared for.

Very close to the train station, Mercato Centrale, and all the must sees in the historical center. Superior room was very large, with a modern bathroom, and fast WiFi. Breakfast was typical but good.

This has become our economically but comfortable hotel o stay whenever we go to Florence. The room (225) is spacious and comfortable. Hotel provides a full breakfast and it is included in the price of the hotel. Staff is responsive and always ready to help. We asked for extra pillows at around 11:00 PM and in less than a minute they were brought to us. Also, the hotel is within walking distance to all Florence has to offer.

loved the hotel and location! Staff was helpful! Would stay again!

It was an affordable hotel near train station and domo.

I chose this hotel because of a quick 2 day trip to Florence and I didn't want to spend too much on my hotel stay. I got a comfortable room, decent size bathroom and not so bad breakfast for less than $75 per night. The hotel room was quiet, didn't hear any noises from the street. The only noise that I heard came from the cleaning staff: when they clean they drag the furniture and it can be heard in the hotel. When I spoke to management about it I think he spoke to the cleaning staff. The front desk was responsive and they even printed documents for me at no cost that I sent to them via email. I strongly recommend this hotel with the proviso that one can book the hotel at around $75 or less per night.

First time back in Florence in fifteen years. Went for work, research and, of course, pleasure. Great location and well worth the money. Room and bathroom a bit small (especially the shower), but spent most of my time taking in the sites, so it was more than adequate.

Great location and friendly staff. Aircondition could be better.

We chose this hotel because of its location in the middle of town, easy walking access to most of the great sights in Florence. However the rooms are cramped and there is no staff to help you with the luggage.

room is clean and comfortable at great location. very convenient.

Everything was fine, but the Breakfast was very poor

Nice hotel, clean, comfortable, quiet. Nice breakfast. Close to train. Not a bad walk to other attractions.

Great location and no frills added in the hotel. The rooms are very small.

We stayed in Florence for 4 days. It was a block away from the central market and a perfect location. It was also very clean.

We enjoyed our stay. The staff was helpful and the location was excellent. Good breakfast too.

This hotel is very close to the Florence train station and well located for exploring Florence. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good and offered a full variety of meets, cereals, breads, etc. The rooms were clean. It seems most Italian hotels have very firm mattresses. Street noise at night could be an issue but adds to the overall charm. I would stay there again.

I needed a room only for a night near downtown Florence, and this was the perfect choice and a great deal. I love that I was able to make the reservation on my way there using the App.

The room that I stayed was perhaps too small. But everything was very clean and the breakfast was very good. The location is excellent. Very close to the train station (two blocks) and short walk to most attractions. I would probably stay again if I go back to Florence.

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.
