Nice big room, free wifi, convenient location. Very clean. Ample breakfast. Great hotel. Wifi works better in lobby than in the rooms. So happy with the size and cleanliness of the room. Extra large bathroom, too.

we stayed for four nights at the Machiavelli Palace and were highly impressed; from the initial welcome and check in, where maps and guides and all the essentials were given, to a thorough and efficient check out with the option to leave our bags to pick up later if we wanted. All reception staff were friendly and very helpful, taking... More

Breakfast is provided and you are within walking distance from the main train station. There are 2!! Ice cream shops in front of the hotel . You are within walking distance of the Cathedral of Florence. Book your train tickets for a half day trip to the town of Pisa. There’s nothing to do there but see to see the... More

I stayed in this hotel last year for few nights. At first we were a bit confused in finding the place since it's tucked in between small streets in Florence. It didn't look that big from the facade but the room was quite big actually. The staffs were very hospitable and helpful, breakfast was also good. It wasn't something fancy... More

We were welcomed warmly by genuinely helpful staff who made our stay most enjoyable. The rooms were tastefully furnished and air conditioned and the hotel's central location made our exploration of the City on foot very convenient . It's position also meant that a short walk takes you to the Santa Maria Novella rail terminus allowing easy access to the... More

The pillows were the most uncomfortable I have ever had in a hotel and even with 3 pilled on top of one another they still felt like a flat ple of bricks. The... More

When we arrived at Pisa Airport we were pleasantly surprised that we could catch a coach outside the arrivals hall straight to Florence Railway Station for only €6 each, and the hotel was only five minutes walk away. The staff were efficient and friendly, the rooms were clean and had air conditioning included in the price of the hotel, very... More

The Machiavelli Palace stays at about 300 metres from Firenze Central Train Station and about 15 minutes walking from The Dome - it's very central and you can go by foot to everywhere in Firenze. The conditions are not that good... the chambers are old, the toillets are not good at all and the breakfast (that is mandatory to "buy"... More

The hotel was in walking distance from the station and a good base for exploring Florence. It was close to shops, sites, restaurants and cafes. We were disappointed with the bedroom, which was small and the beds were very hard. On the plus side, we had a good view from our window of the Duomo and the bathroom was excellent.... More
