Very pleasant stay in this hotel, in a most convenient location. The room was clean and comfortable, the staff were helpful and pleasant, and the breakfast was fine, with delicious light warm brioches. It was lovely to sit on the roof terrace in the evening with a glass of wine.

We were staying in Florence for 6 nights all at the Machiavelli Palace, which is situated on a busy road, near the railway station, so if you need quiet, ask for a room on the back or side of the hotel. The position of the Machiavelli Palace is very good with most sites within walking distance and there are plenty... More

Stayed here in July for our honeymoon. Had a room with balcony. Nothing great, but nothing nasty. Fantastic central location, just a couple of minutes from the railway station by foot. Perfect for access to city centre Florence and all the bars, restaurants, attractions. Breakfast simple but adequate. Id stay there again - no problem ! Expect traffic noise, your... More

I couldn't choose better. The hotel is located 5 minutes from Santa Maria Novella train station, there's a variety of restaurants nearby. The crew was simply great, excellent service, the room was quiet (it was a room in the back of the hotel), nice breakfast, clean room and bathroom. After our check out, my wife was not feeling so good... More

Stayed for 4 nights. The hotel IS within walking distance of all the major attractions in Florence. Unfortunately, on our second day, we noticed that our room smelled like raw sewage. We complained to the front desk, who were not at surprised to hear this information. They said they would attend to it. When we came back from sightseeing that... More

We stayed here in August for 8 nights. We liked our quiet room. We found it to be clean and comfortable. We are out most of the day and early evening. So when we get back, it looks nice and clean! We know it is an older hotel, but its location is perfect for us. The breakfast was not ever... More

A 2 minute walk from Florence's central train station so very easy to find. Check in was great and the rooms were very spacious and clean. Lots of nice restaurants nearby and very easy walking distance to all of the main sights. Only real problem which ruined the stay was breakfast. The breakfast room is far too small to accommodate...

Stayed at this hotel in August 2014 for 2 nights. In reading the other reviews, we obviously were staying in a completely different area of the hotel - "a room with no view"! The room itself was ok and decorated in a cute style but the floor near the bed had not been cleaned at any time during our stay.... More

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.
