We made a pit stop in Florence on our tour trough Italy last June. We stayed at the MP for two nights. The hotel is very conveniently located close to the train station and the local buses. Our room was a regular double, located on the third floor down some very long hall way. It had air-conditioning, but it seemed... More

The Hotel Machiavelli Palace is in a good location near the central rail station but on the very touristy Via Nationale with vary narrow sidewalks barely wide enough to accommodate a person pulling a suitcase. However, a supermarket and other services are nearby as well as overpriced restaurants. The hotel was last renovated in the late 80's, so it is... More

We have just returned from honeymoon in Florence where we stayed at the Machiavelli Palace. The location of the hotel was perfect, close to the railway station, and all the sights of the city. The hotel amenities were good, at booking we chose a Superior room and were pleased with the size and the added advantage of a balcony. Our... More

I have stayed at Machiavelli Palace for four nice and I can recommend you this place for your short stay in Florence. Location is just perfect - you are between the train station and city center is only in few steps from you. The rates are reasonable, rooms are clean, you'll get a free Wi-Fi and complimentary breakfast as well.... More

We have spent a week visiting Florence and have stayed at the Machiavelli Palace. It is perfect for seeing the sights in Florence and an easy walk to the bus station for the airport in Pisa. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. Our room took 3 people and it had air conditioning. The breakfasts were nice, warm croissants,... More

We have just returned from 4 nights in Florence and stayed at the Machiavelli hotel, the location is perfect for the train station and all restaurants and bars. We booked a room with a balcony so our room was on the small side because the balcony was so big but good for sitting out. We tried on a couple of... More

Florence is an expensive city to visit and if you are planning to visit only for a few days - then the Hotel Machiavelli Palace may be suitable. The hotel staff speak good English and are very helpful. Breakfast is complimentary and free wifi. In terms of location, it is 5-10 minutes to walk to the central train station and... More

This Hotel is literally a 2 minute walk from the train station. A 3 minute walk to the Duomo. We stayed here for a week. The staff were incredibly helpful and polite. The breakfast was the same each day but more than enough, ham, salami, bread rolls, etc. maybe not brilliant if you are veggie but the huge indoor market... More

We requested a 4 star hotel in the centre of Florence and this is where the travel agent sent us. The travel agent (USA American Express) let us down. Rated 3 stars at the door, but really a 2 star at best. We were received by a very rude lady at reception who got very annoyed when we asked if... More

Great base to stay in Florence, if you can ask for a balcony it has fantastic views. So close to the station and gentle stroll into the city. The basket of fruit was a nice touch and we also had a mini bottle of wine left for us after a few days with them. ( they may of noticed that... More
