A few years ago, we stayed in a small hotel near the train station,which was nice, but this time we had a little more budget and decided to book Hotel dei Macchiaioli. It's not cheap, but I read excellent reviews here, and saw it was really near the Duomo. I was very glad to make this decision, the service is... More

Great hotel in a central location. This hotel is situated around the corner from the Piazza del Duomo. The staff was very helpful in pointing out must see attractions and sights off the beaten path. Breakfast options were slightly more plentiful, than other European hotels I have stayed at. Accommodations were average. Comparable to a Holiday Inn stateside - but... More

This place is tucked away and a little difficult to find- we drove by at least twice without seeing it. Once you get inside you take your things up a beautiful marble staircase to stay in lovely rooms… breakfast was great, served in a room with beautiful murals and paintings. Easy to walk to restaurants, bars, the big outdoor market,... More

I stayed in this hotel with my wife for one night. The hotel is clean with large and confortable room. It's located next to the center; the cathedral is 5 minute by foot and the downtown 10 minutes. The breackfast could be improved ... it's a little easy for an italian hotel.

I knew this place was close to the train station, but I didn't realize how unbelievably close to the Duomo it would be. This puts it smack dab in the middle of Florence, with tourism and shopping south a mere minutes walk, and all the food options you want by the Mercato Central again only five minutes away. Combine that... More

I start by mentioning the only possible drawback of this hotel. It is on the first floor and one has to come up a few stairs. But given that in Florence we were prepared to walk a lot anyway, this was not really an issue for us. After going through a lot of reviews on TripAdvisor, I decided to book... More

The location was very good, just blocks from the Galleria dell'Accademia as well as the Piazza del Duomo; yet it was very quiet. The staff were friendly and eager to please, the room was clean and comfortable, and the breakfast area was a delight with painted panels on the ceiling. The only negative was that the hotel is on the... More

This was not only the perfect location but also the perfect staff. Paolo and Arianna took wonderful care of us. We highly recommend taking the guided walking tour of Florence and The Accademia Gallery that the hotel offers! Paolo made Florence come to life! The hotel was spotless! The location perfect! Literally, 5 minutes from the Duamo.....and everything else there... More

This hotel has both charm and comfort and its location is wonderful! It is in the same block as the Medici-Riccardi Palace, close to San Lorenzo and just far enough from the Duomo for quiet sleep, yet within easy walking distance of it. I stayed for nine nights, with two friends there for some of this time, and we all... More

I loved the location - very close to the Duomo without being in all the action. Very friendly staff with great restaurant recommendations. They were very accommodating and helpful. They also spoke excellent English. The hotel is on the 2nd floor and the entrance to the stairs is tucked in a hallway off the street which makes it a little... More
