“Great Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

We stayed here for 5 nights in April. It was very easy to walk to from the train station. From the moment we arrived Paulo was so helpful, he met us at the bottom of the stairs and carried up our luggage...he gave us a great recommendation for dinner, Giglio Rosso, it was great:) The room was small but very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was included and had a very nice selection. Everything we wanted to see was close enough to walk to..... It was a great place to use as a home base while in Florence. Should we be so lucky to make it back to Italy we would definitely stay here again:)

I found this hotel amazing. Yes, it is not inexpensive, but to be fair Florence is not inexpensive, especially if you want to be in the city centre.

I was travelling with my parents and needed a comfortable, central location and found this lovely hotel fit for my purposes. We could reach all main points of interest on foot, within minutes.

The staff is amazing: attentive, courteous, extremely friendly. I would like to thank Paolo for his excellent commitment to his customers and efficiency: you just need to ask and he'll try his best to accomodate your needs. He also is multilingual (fluent in German too) which in Italy is certainly not to be taken for granted. We had booked a single and a double room, but their family room became available and he kindly made us aware of it: we had a lovely stay in it! These are two fairly big rooms facing via Cavour, pleasantly isolated from the rest of the rooms and adjacent to the breakfast room. A sort of independent "flat", perfect if travelling in a group of three or four, whether family or friends: the smaller bedroom has its bathroom on the little private corridor, while the bigger one has its own private bathroom en suite. Some may think these rooms are a bit loud being on via Cavour, but all you need is a pair of ear plugs if you are not a deep sleeper and you'll be ok.

The bathroom(s): blow dryer available, shower gel/shampoo provided (if not great quality, perhaps you may want to bring your own if you are picky with that) and two good quality soap bars. The furnishing is smooth, clean, brand new.

The rooms are nice: the bed is comfortable; yes, the pillows are pretty flat, but that's just how pillows in Italy look like! I thought they were just fine.

Breakfast is very good; great choice of food, sweet and savoury, enough to please any taste and cultural custom! Two different juices, several kinds of bread, cold cuts, cheese, hot drinks, several kinds of cereals, croissants, fruit, eggs and another few more bits and bobs...so much variety that I can't even remember.

What else can I say? I am not a very-easy-to-please traveller and rarely go for hotels that have less than four stars, but would highly recommend this hotel to anyone and would not hesitate to stay here again if I was to be fortunate enough to visit this gorgeous city again.

Very good value for money. Rooms are clean and new. Staff were very helpful. Location was great - near the central station and Duomo. If we find ourselves in Florence again, will definitely stay in this hotel again.

I stayed here in March for a week with a friend and it was the perfect hotel to make as a base for exploring Florence and the rest of Tuscany. The rooms were clean and warm (which was welcome as it was a particularly cold week) and the staff were extremely helpful (even helping us make reservations at the museums and providing us with restaurant recommendations). Slight downside (and it's by no means a big complaint) but the bathroom in our room was slightly on the narrow side. The breakfasts were simple but delicious and there was a wide selection of cheese, ham, fruit, breads and pastries. Great value for money and a good recommendation for anyone looking for a hotel that has a bit of character in a brilliant location.

This is a lovely hotel in a fantastic location - no doubts about it. The rooms were nice and clean - but there were many missing details. For example, there were only 2 pillows for the 2 of us, both very flat. Another example - the towels were of very poor quality - we had white fibre all over us. For a three star hotel, this doesn't bode well. If they were a two star hotel, I would rate them a notch higher.

Dear Guest,

thank you very much for your review !!

We are sorry for the 2 things that you didn't like.

We couldn't know with how many pillows you are use to sleep, if we knew it we would have put more pillows in your room. We thought that 1 pillow per person could be enough.
If you had said that you need more pillows we would have gave you some more.

We are also sorry that you didn't like our towels.
We have had and we still have guests that ask if they can buy some of our towels from us because they like them.

Even though you didn't like 2 things , we hope that the rest of your stay was nice and we really would like to welcome you back soon :)

Kind regards

The Hotel dei Macchiaioli far exceeded our expectations for a city center, affordable hotel. It is a family run operation where you are treated like a family member from the moment you arrive. The whole staff took wonderful care of us. The rooms are modest, clean, and comfortable. Paolo took great care of us weeks before we arrived, patiently answering all of my questions via email. He made us dinner reservations, and we were lucky enough to have an amazing tour of Florence with him as well. This is also located in the center of the city, walking distance from everything. If we are every lucky enough to go back, we will stay here again! Thank you for the trip of a lifetime.

This is a lovely hotel although lots of stairs up to the reception. The rooms are small but very nicely decorated. The people on reception were very helpful, there were no tea and coffee facilities but they lent us a kettle! The location is very central only a stroll from the big marble church sante Maria del fiore.
