“Artistic hotel in historic building with elegance and friendly feel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2012

Hotel entrance is through a grand carriage type entrance just off the street. We were greeted warmly with help with our luggage. Especially considerate as there are several sets of steps up to the entrance. There isn't a lift as it is a historic building which has been carefully renovated to preserve the original features.

All the staff we met were very helpful and friendly. I found this hotel on Tripadvisor and following our very positive experience,we agree with their high rating. When choosing the hotel, I had been concerned about how near we would be to restaurants. After a full day exploring, we were keen to find places to eat close by to the hotel. We were very pleased with Paolo's recommendations all superb within five minutes walk as well as plenty of others we could have chosen.

Location is great. Via Cavour is a main street, near to the Duomo, yet we didn't feel troubled by noise or traffic.

Our room was spotlessly clean with good quality bed linen and a gleaming bathroom and powerful shower. Our window looked out over a pretty garden with lemon trees.

We would definitely stay here again on another visit to Florence and strongly recommend.

I just returned yesterday from a two night stay in Florence and this hotel was perfect for a female travelling alone. The location being very important for me was excellent and the hotel staff were always available to help me with maps and restaurants etc.
The rooms are very clean and everything works which is important!
Breakfast included offers more choices than I have been offered in many European small hotels and had to pay 15 euros for.
An all round good choice for short stays for couple or singles go for all ages.

We travelled to Florence last week - and chose the Hotel dei Macchiaioli based on TripAdvisor. It works. Location is excellent - in between Ufizzi and Academia and steps from the Duomo. Staff is incredibly helpful in planning your trip - they didn't steer us wrong once - and they helped us navigate buses, restaurants and fitting all the sights of Florence into two days. We had the family room - which really is great if you are travelling with kids - they get their own seperate bedroom and bathroom. The hotel itself is ornate - and interesting - free breakfast and wi-fi is also good. Location, great staff, and reasonable price - what more do you want.

Room Tip: The family room is excellent! Great for travelling with kids.

This hotel exceeded my expectations on several fronts. The staff was personable, helpful and beyond friendly and my single room was immaculate, modern and comfortable. Add to this a stellar location just two and a half blocks from the Baptistery and Duomo in one direction and two blocks from the Academia in the other.
This small (15 rooms) hotel is in a former second floor palazzo and the public areas are beautiful and spacious. Much of the original architecture has been preserved, including the frescoed ceiling in the breakfast room, while the guest rooms are sleek and modern.

Room Tip: Travelling solo I usually expect to be tucked away in some corner with a tiny, basic room. The photo...

Absolutely excellent staff, very very helpful. Awesome location. This is probably the best hotel I ever stayed in all my European trips. Very comfortable room and very large dining/common area.
