Stayed for 6 nights here on a business trip. The room was very poorly lit and depressing. The bedspread was deteriorating from age, with several holes starting. The rooms do not contain irons, which I needed to iron business clothes. The front desk recommended setting up an appointment with an affiliated hotel, and taking my clothes there to iron myself....

Machiavelli Palace has a good location, in walking distance to the main tourist sites in Florence and also to the train station. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable, but noisy if you open the window, since it faced the street. Also, there is a nice terrace at the last floor, where you can enjoy a nice... More

Location was wonderful, I have stayed here twice in the last year. The service is always excellent, the staff friendly and the rooms clean. The room was very small, but as I travel alone, there was enough room for me. Walking distance to all the sights and several good restaurants in the area.

Room was clean and well-lit. Boutique style furnishing with high ceiling and tall window. They had multiple choices in breakfast. Impressive breakfast arrangements! We were walk-in & got lucky find reasonable room rate.

The staff was rude from the second we walked in & I speak some Italian. When we arrived our rooms were not ready - which wasn't a big deal so we went to the bar. It was just a bar in a closet sized area & they had no water (for purchase or free). We were directed to the "dining... More

For a four night stay at Hotel Macchiavelli Palace, it was amazing to have not only biscotti and a bottle of red wine included, but also a walking tour of Central Florence (priceless in my book). The hotel is centrally located and has very kind of staff. The room was also quite comfortable, especially considering the price. Would stay here... More

We were only here for 1 night. Considering what we paid and the location, that gets me to bump it from 3 to 4. I don't mind describing a bedroom as charming, but bathrooms are a different story. Good water pressure, but inconsistent temperature (my 10 year old learned what it's like for water to snap between freezing and burning,... More

We stayed for three nights. Hotel's central location is the only reason to stay here. The accommodations were marginal at best. There is no air conditioning - I don't see how you could stay there during a hot summer night (lucky for us the weather was cool). Because there's no air conditioning, you have to open your window & listen... More

The service was excellent, the room was pretty. The location between central-station and dome was perfect. Only the water pipes were to noisy, The room was quite big enough for the three of us. We were happy that everyone spoke Englisch, because our Italian is so poor :-)

This was a second return to this property mainly because of its exceptional location to the train station, the central market and the historical centre of the city. Room is comfortable and the views of the city street a bonus. Complimentary buffet breakfast was excellent. The WiFi is hit and miss but the staff are courteous and helpful. It's location... More
