“Fantastic boutique hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Staff were very helpful and friendly and gave us great tips for dinner. The rooms are newly refurbished and clean, the beautiful old house is in a great location, just around the corner from the main sights. Everything is in walking distance, it's the perfect place for a stay in Florence!

Excellent stay in Florence at the Hotel Macchiaioloi. Staff were very helpful with all aspects of reservations and recommendations. Clean, well-appointed rooms in a beautiful building. We went on the 3 hour walking tour with Paolo, which we would highly recommend. He covered many items not in the tour books and was very knowledgable about history of Florence.

Thank you !!

Still Paolo one of the main attraction with his tours , this time with a Walking Tour :)

You say that he " covered many items not in the tour books ", well, this is exactly what a personal tour guide should do , bring century of life, history, art to life and you can hardly do it with a tour book :)

Thank you for sharing your experience.

Kind regards

My wife and I enjoyed our honeymoon in Italy last year, and especially so in Florence. The Hotel dei Macchiaiolo is so well located, just minutes away from the Duomo.
We started with a walking tour by Paolo, who was extremely informative and explained many of the sights of Florence and the historical significance to us. We also went on a private wine tour with Marco.
The hotel room was nice and big. Breakfast was good too.
Am going back to Florence again in a few weeks' time, and am looking forward to enjoying a stay at this nice hotel again!

Hotel rooms are clean, bathrooms are large considering european standards.
We are not big eaters but the breakfast specially their cherry tomatoes are incredible.
Adriana at the front desk was very helpful and friendly. Had wonderful recommendations for authentic restaurants in Florence. She helped us make a dinner reservation at one of the top restaurants in town. Hotel is located in an old historic building with nice paintings on the ceiling of the breakfast lounge. Will recommend staying there definitely.

Nice place, very friendly staff, great location. Recommend.

One small suggestion: Ironing board should be a real one that is freestanding, and not the mini- one that didn't really have any place to rest on.

Room Tip: The suite with 2 rooms is a nice option with one large room and a smaller but fully decent other roo...

Was not hard finding this hotel and the steps were actually very manageable (just three short flights) but Paulo whom was on duty for the day of our arrival already spotted us coming from the camera and was down to help us so readily. He was also so helpful and precise with his recommendations and directions!

The warmth of the hotel's service continued with Marco, whom we appointed for a tour of Tuscany - he was very careful and attentive in his driving, and was very informative in showing us the gems of Tuscany, including a very good wine tasting session at a vineyard as well as pointing out the world's champion gelato maker etc.

The hotel was indeed in a good location, about 10-15 min walk from the Termini with luggage, and 5- 10 min walk to the major sights and attractions in Firenze, just a stone's throw away from the Galleria museum as well. The room was bigger than I imagined and was equipped with a modern tv as well as amenities. Bathroom was clean and breakfast was satisfactory in an elegant historic room with paintings from the past eras.

Room Tip: Do alert the reception of your arrival for them to help if you have heavy luggage. Also, the hotel i...
