We stayed at the Hotel dei Macchiaioli for two nights, and it was simply wonderful! The hotel itself just has a feeling of luxury and elegance. Yes, it is a bit of a splurge, but totally worth it! Our hotel had a nice, quiet balcony that just lended itself to the overall romantic feel of the hotel. The breakfast room with the painted ceiling is truly unforgettable!
Not only is it a beautifully appointed hotel, the staff is friendly and accommodating -- the desk clerk made reservations for us at the Uffizi and Accademia. The breakfast buffet was great with more choices than the typical European breakfasts we've had.
The location of the hotel is very convenient to the sites...the Duomo is within 5 minutes, the Accademia Museum is even closer. I believe the train station is a bit further than a 10 minute walk, but not sure as we ended up taking a taxi from the train station to the hotel (a 6euro cab ride).
If you don't mind the price tag, this is a must-stay hotel. Even though it is a bit more expensive than other hotels, it is worth every penny!
