I had never stayed at a one-star hotel before, but I can now imagine staying again at Hotel Masaccio. The location was great, the room as well as the shared bathroom were clean and the staff were friendly and accommodating. The street noise can be an issue for some guests, but it was no big deal for me.
Very nice room, with shower and wash-basin. TV and WiFi free and reliable. Parking garage for 18€/night just 100m. Very helpful staff, keen to assist with daily plan. Location 12 mins to the very center - excellent for Firenze. Street noise is not hotel mistake, just a night life in Firenze. Supermarket next to the hotel with anything you may need for evening or as a gift (wines, cheese, pasta). Honestly recommended hotel.
The host was very welcoming and warm, and readily helped me with a special request (an iron and an ironing board). Everyone from the staff I met during my short stay was lovely. The shared bathroom was very clean and there was always warm water. The room was spotless; clean, tidy, with enough towels. I found the bed comfy and the ventilator really helped! The hosts also kindly provided a mosquito repellent. I didn't eat at the hotel, so I cannot comment on the food. The only issue is, as some others have mentioned, the background traffic noise coming from the street. I did get used to it eventually; but I would not recommend this room to people who are very sensitive to noise while sleeping. I believe this is not an issue for rooms facing the back of the hotel; in that case, I would warmly recomment this hotel to everyone! Regardless of the street noise, this was excellent value for money relatively close to central Florence.…
I had a very nice experience at Hotel Masaccio which was exactly what I expected: of course, the rooms do not have the best commodities, but you really get a very nice stay for very little money! The room was clean and good looking. The receptionist was extremely welcoming and kind, which made me feel very comfortable and welcome. They gave me a kettle in my room based on a special request from me, which was very helpful of them! Two small comments: there was a lot of noise from the bedroom next to mine and from the street, but I might have been unlucky. It also smelled often like recent cigarette, but again, that might be that someone was smoking at this exact date! The location is perfect, all workers were helpful and flexible and the hotel is charming. would recommend!
The food they served me at dinner was excellent! They were always very attentive to what I needed. It was only me in the hotel, because of covid they had no other guests so the shared bathroom was mine alone, the problem with a shared bathroom is that you don't know how long the other guests will occupy it for, but fortunately I didn't have to deal with this. There was a lot of noise coming from the street, as in, a LOT. I had earplugs so I was able to sleep but I would recommend having some when you come here.
We had a pleasant stay in Firenze! The staff is very friendly! A nice place to stay near downtown. If you are looking for a cheap place near the center here's the place. The toilet is shared but nothing to worry.
They were very accommodating and kind, even gave us a map with some key places to check out. The room was perfect for what we needed and the bed was comfy! The only thing we had to look out for was on the first day, our shower drain wasn't draining haha so made for a quick shower. After day one it the issue seemed to be fixed.
I ve stayed at Hotel Massacio for 7 days. The location is perfect - just 20 minutes by foot to the city center and 7 minutes to the bus station to badia fiesolana (I visited a summer school there, so the location was very relevant for me). The stuff was always nice and ready to help. Cleaning service came every day (!) and changed the towels once in 3 days. The room had everything I needed. It was not air conditioned, but there was a ventilator, so it was bearable at +35 degrees and very nice and cool at night (I opened my window every night). So, if you are looking something affordable to stay for a long time, this hotel is a great choice.
Clean room, we went for the superior double which was the Cupid room with the shell headboard and mural walls. There was a lovely view from the balcony which was a nice surprise. I really can't fault it except to say the breakfast was substandard for 5 euro per person, it was very basic.
Everything was very clean and spacious. Room was too cute.The only thing that we did not like about the hotel is : room was too cold maybe because of the fact that window is very big for the roomBathroom was hot, water for bath was okay.
