“Good IF you want to stay in central Florence”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

Service was very friendly and helpful. We received some good suggestions on restaurants (which compared to places such as Venice and Rome are not very good). We found it to be expensive given that it was only a 3 star hotel and the room wasn't very big. The room was clean and quiet with a decent bed. Location is good IF you want to stay near all the tourist spots in Florence. In highsight we would have rather stayed just outside downtown Florence e.g. in the hills south of the Arno river. Downtown is packed with tourists, with little trees and get's unbearably hot in Summer. Breakfast was nice with a typical selection of meats, cheeses, breads etc.

We recently stayed in this hotel for 2 nights and were extremely happy with our choice!
The rooms were charming, clean, comfortable and quiet.
The staff were friendly and helpful and Paolo helped us with places to eat which were absolutely delicious, sights to see and as helped us book a day tour to Sienna and surroundings which we enjoyed very much!
I would definitely stay at this hotel again. It is in a great location and affordable!

Perfect location, charming, clean and comfortable, as well as affordable! The staff was friendly, helpful, and all spoke English (and were very patient with our attempts at speaking Italian). They responded to our every request promptly and with a smile. When we return to Florence, this is definitely where we will stay. It felt like home away from home to us.

We would highly recommend this friendly family hotel. We stayed seven nights, and found the staff very helpful, the room clean and comfortable, no particular view but we loved the dining location which is decorated in gorgeous 'Medici style' ! We had a room away from the street side which was quiet. Altogether we were pretty happy, and it was reasonably priced.

I was very happy with my stay here. It was within perfect walking distance from the centre and offered a very decent price. The hotel was easy to find from the train station and about a 10 minute walk. The room was clean and comfortable. No view, but I was only there to sleep!

We "3 Sisters from California" highly recommend this hotel! We had the pleasure of staying at this location for 5 wonderful nights. We felt at home the moment we arrived! We were given a tour of the hotel, shown the breakfast and seating areas; if you need WiFi it is free and worked great. They show a GENUINE INTEREST in making sure you have a WONDERFUL time in Florence! The room and bathroom were very comfortable for 3 women sharing a space.The hotel is in the perfect location!!!! You can walk to everything. The staff is warm, friendly, and professional; always available to answer questions. I made arrangements for a private city tour with Paolo on our first night. The tour was excellent Paolo is very knowledgeable in the history of the city as well as the arts. The tour was worth every euro! Be sure to have a Tuscan Steak before you leave the city; the staff can give you a recommendation on where. Enjoy a cooking class and a wine tour is a must!

We would like to THANK all our friends at the "Hotel dei Macchiaioli" for helping to make our time in Florence very special!

We will be back!

We checked out of Hotel dei Macchiaioli this morning. The hotel is on the second floor with no elevator but the owner came down and was eager to help with out bags. She is fantastic as is Paolo and the rest of the staff.

Located about two blocks from the Duomo it is easy to walk to everything in central Florence. It is also easy to reach from the central train station.

The rooms are on the small side but are modern and kept very clean. The TV's are small but you're likely not in Florence to sit in your room. For a small hotel Hotel dei Macchiaioli has big common areas which are beautiful and well kept with incredible ceilings. Breakfast is served in a large room overlooking the street below. There are an assortment of cold cuts and cheeses, juices, cereal, hardboiled eggs and fruit. There is an automated coffee/tea/espresso machine but you can also ask for a cappuccino from their bar and they'll happily bring you one.

Both Paolo and the hotel information sheet recommended Giglio Rosso for dinner. Usually when a hotel pushes for a restaurant I'm skeptical but on the last night of our three nights in Florence we ate there. We got there early and were wondering if we had made a mistake since there were no customers. However, once the gnocchi with radicchio and gorgonzola arrived all doubts were dismissed. The place did fill up as we ate with a many locals mixed in with busloads of tourists.

Paolo also sent us to Il Cernacchino for lunch. This is the best lunch spot that we found with incredible 4 euro sandwiches, breadbowls filled with stew or meatballs, fresh lasagna and a bunch of other incredible house-made dishes. If you have restraint you can walk out full and happy for 5 euro. If you, like us, you lack any restraint you can stuff yourself for a little bit more.

We booked two nights through the hotel's website and subsequently booked one more night while we were there. Both methods yielded great prices.

Our only minor complaints were that the heating/AC units had been switched to heat only since it was November. The windows in Rooms 112 and 110 open to an interior courtyard/shaft that is shared with a restaurant ventilation hood. When opened during business hours the rooms get to smelling like a restaurant.

All in all a great staff and hotel.
