“Wonderful small hotel center of Florence.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2011

This is a renovated historic building in the center of Florence, two long blocks from the Duomo. No elevator due to restrictions because of the historic nature of the building...no problem because someone is there to help you with your bags. We stayed in two adjacent rooms by themselves on a corridor off the main room which leads into the breakfast room. Incredibly clean, very comfortable, nice breakfast. However, what makes this place special is the small staff, including the owner Francesca. Everyone is so nice and helpful with any request (directions, dinner reservations, etc). I enjoyed just talking to them and getting to know them. I hope we have the opportunity to return to Florence in the not-too-distant future...I already know where we'll stay. Ciao!

We stayed here for two nights and were very happy. I picked the hotel based on TA reviews. The staff was very helful. We went with their recommendations for restaurants rather than the ones from TA and were very happy. The rooms were clean, the hotel was quiet, and was in a good location. This was one of our favorite hotels on our trip. Would recommend!

We were guests at this gorgeous hotel for 2 nights and loved every minute of our stay - we didn't want to leave! The delightful staff were welcoming from the second we arrived and the room was spacious and immaculate. And having a feast of a breakfast in the beautiful dining room was also a great joy! Florence is a stunning city and this superbly located hotel makes any stay there all the more wonderful. Many thanks to the Hotel dei Macchiaioli!

My husband and I have recently returned from a two night stay at the Hotel Dei Macchiaoli on 21/22 Feb 2011. We were on a buying trip for my shop in Norwich, England, and the hotel was ideally placed for our trip, including sight seeing ( two minutes walk from the Duomo) and the centre of Florence. The hotel was originally a palace for a rich Florentine family, which has amazing frescos in the lounge and breakfast room. The staff were extrememly polite and helpful, the rooms are spacious and well decorated, large comfortable beds and beautiful warm bathrooms. Very clean. We had heavy luggage which they were very keen to help us with, (as their is no lift being a protected building.) However, there is facility for disabilities as all rooms are on the first floor. We were surprised how quiet it was for a city centre hotel. Good continental breakfast included.
We had a car which was quickly collected by the nearby garage, which offers as many in/outs as you want for a daily charge of €24. We would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel. We will be back again soon.

I have been a member on TA for about 3 years and this is my first post. I have just got back from 3 nights at Dei Macchiaioli and felt they deserve some recognition.
This is a fairly new hotel and is clean, modern and comfortable. The buffet breakfast has loads of choice, is nice and fresh and all set out with great care.
The thing that made my stay even more enjoyable was the friendliness, care and attention of the staff esp. Francesca and Paolo, but I get the feeling that this attitude exists throughout the hotel. It’s a small family-like set up (but not “overbearing” as some family operations can be) and professionally executed.
Francesca was really helpful during booking including sorting out reservations at a couple of museums and when I was there Paulo (who has worked for owners since 2003 in another hotel) dealt with my various requirements, always in the most positive and helpful manner. He does a bit of guiding in Florence and entertained me in conversation about art when I’m sure he had plenty of other things to do.

My mom and I spent a few nights at this charming little hotel during our trip to Italy in February 2011. The room and bathroom were clean but small, though not tiny by European standards. About a 12-15 minute walk from the main train station in Florence. I do have to dock a few points for service though. It’s fine that a building of this age doesn’t have an elevator – I can understand that. But then the hotel should really offer assistance with luggage. My mom and I had to lug our bags up at least 2-3 flights of stairs from the ground-floor entrance to the hotel itself on the second floor (or “first floor” for Europeans). When we checked in, there was a lady at the desk who at least tried to help us, even though she just went for the small carry-on bag while we had to get the large check-in bags ourselves. But when we checked out of the hotel, the man behind the desk didn’t even bother offering to help with our bags. He just stood there watching us. This isn’t a big deal if you travel very light, I know. But for us – one old lady and one with a back problem – it was definitely a blemish on an otherwise comfortable stay.

Dear guest,

thank you for the review.
We are sorry that you found our assistance with your luggage not helpful.
The girl that helped you when you checked-in, she just took a luggage, she didn't know that the other luggege could have been heavier. She just took the 1st that she saw.

About the day of your check-out , we are sorry that the man behind the desk didn't help you.
It won't happen again.

Thanks once again for your review and we wish you all the best.

My husband and I spent 2 weeks in Italy in January and went to Rome, Siena, Florence, Venice and Milan. Hotel dei Macchiaioli in Florence is our favorite hotel in this trip. It was great value for a hotel at such a fantastic location. We walked to everywhere in Florence! The hotel is very cozy and the staffs were very friendly and warm. The hotel room was big, clean, elegant and cozy. The bed was big and comfortable. I've been told that hotel rooms in Europe are generally small and we did stay in a miserably tidy room in Rome, so we were very pleasantly surprised with the big room here.

The only fault I found with the hotel was the stupid design of shower door in the bathroom, whenever we took shower the water would spread all over the bathroom floor. But overall I would highly recommend this hotel for its location, service and value for money.
