Hotel Masaccio Florence

1.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

It's not a luxurious hotel, it doesn't have large rooms, jacuzzi or valets, but it is perfect for those who want to experience the feeling of Florence, of what it feels like for the local people. The rooms are cozy, and the decor it's reminiscing of the days of Dolce Vita, while the staff is made of welcoming, nice and honest people that will make you feel less of a stranger in a big city.

I stayed 2 nights. Good location with lovely coffee shops in the street. Nice and very friendly staff. The room was clean, comfortable. I was satisfied with the price and services. I just can recommend it.

Had a brief return stay and was pleased to see that they have made the hotel even better. They have spent considerable money remodeling and the new room was beautiful. The owners still give the friendly care and concern you only get from a family owned hotel. Very nice overall experience.

This is a good budget hotel having all the basic things you need. The staff are helpful and friendly, the room big and clean, bed comfortable, water temperature good with acceptable pressure and quiet at night. You can have breakfast for 5 euro per person but we didn’t bother, getting fruit from the nearby supermarket. Half an hour easy walk to the Duomo. Being a budget hotel there are some things to be aware of. There is no lift, the wifi, when it works, is slow, no refrigerator or tea making facilities in room. Bring thick socks to keep you feet warm when walking around the room as the tiles are cold and although the nights got down to 10oC during our five night stay the heating did not come on. Clean towels every three days, but in our five days we didn’t receive clean towels so that is perhaps something you need to request specifically. Good value as Florence is not a cheap place to stay compared with Asia or Eastern Europe.

Stayed in a family room for 4 people. Decor was fun and rural. Good location and lovely staff. Only stayed for one night as was passing through to Pisa but some lovely museums and centre about a 15 minute walk away

The staff is very nice, although you have to make sure that the price you pay is the one you were supposed to pay from the beginning. It's very old fashioned, but it's very clean and it has air conditioning, which was amazing since the weather in Florence can be very hot in the summer. I enjoyed my stay there.

it is not a luxury hotel.But for the price its wort the money. The reception gave my a warm welcome and before i even asked they gave me a map over the city and started to explain were to take the buss and place to go wort seeing. The room wasentbig but as the rest of the hotel very neat and every detail is godd taste.. the bed was comfortoble and the room was very clean. i had everything i needed.the bathroom is maby a little to smal but it works..its easy to get to al the touristatractions but anyhow a calm place little a side of the more bussy places.the service was exelent and the staff kind and helpfull..reakfast was godd for being a italian breakfast. i got fresch fruits and yougert cakes and bread honey and jam,nutella jucie capocino and cornflakes. the only thing is if you have difficult with stairs this is not a place to go. its many stairs up to the first flor were the reception are and the hotelantrance..

This was a repeat stay for us and everything was as nice as ever. They converted some spaces to include a few more rooms, but the prices are about the same as is the warm reception from the family owned hotel. Can't say enough positive things about this experience.

Our room was on the top floor under the roof. We checked in lately so the personnel were absent. So I wrote a e-mail and was told how to get inside and where get the key. Rooms are clean include TV. Wi-fi worked well but not rapid. Breakfasts are very poor. We ate in the city. For the money aske it is one of the best offers in Florence I think. Guys who are cleanin the rooms can open doors from outside even if key is left in keyhole, no tables with clean my room/non distirb.

Stayed for two nights in a double room with shared facilities, although we did have a shower in the room and the bathroom was opposite our room. Pros include friendly staff, the option of breakfast for an additional €5 and the low price. Cons include the location, a reasonable walk from the centre and even further from the station, and the lack of the air conditioning. Breakfast was adequate but consisted mainly of pre-packaged croissants and cakes rather than the fresher options we had available in other places, we had it one morning but there were plenty of options in the city that fared better for our second morning. The fact that reception was not manned before 8:30am (when the big attractions open before then, and quickly build up long queues) or after 8:30pm combined with the location meant that we weren't able to organise leaving our bags while we explored on our final day instead we ended up paying for the left luggage at the train station. All in all, it was a reasonable budget option, but I wouldn't strongly recommend it - I reckon there's better out there for similar money/better location.
