Machiavelli Palace Hotel Florence
4 out of 5

the staffs are kind, location is close to the station and POIs, and also there are many restaurants near. It was very hot & humid in Florence, but this hotel keeps very good hygiene, so the room was really clean. One dissapointing point was that the shower room was really small and narrow. I am small woman, but even I felt unconfortable.

Overall, I should say that I had a good stay at this place. First of all, it is located about 3-5 minutes from Florence's train station. This was very convenient to me as I traveled between cities by train. So, arriving from Venice or leaving for Pisa the following day and Rome the day after (quite early in the morning) was not at all issue. I could easily walk from the station despite having 2 travel bags with wheels. However, such close proximity to the station and its location on a fairly busy street could be an issue at night sometimes, as you may hear a lot of noise from the street compromising on your sleep. It does get quieter later at night and remains so until early morning. The most important reason as to why I gave lesser points on amenities and room comfort is because the sound-proofing in the facility is poor. I could literally hear every word that was spoken in my neighbor's room (not that I intended it) and as they were awake after I had gone to bed, it was too much of a hindrance for me, as I could not go to sleep for quite some time. The second drawback is that there was a constant malodor prevailing in the bathroom despite the bathroom being clean. I am not sure if it was because of a common ventilator duct traversing the floors above and below. The shower area is quite small. I am an average person and for someone who is big, this could definitely be an issue. If you drop your soap, you could find it very difficult to pick it up from the floor. However, these were not major issues to me on the whole. My bed was comfortable. The room was clean. Mine had a balcony attached to it with a table and few chairs. I could sit on the balcony late in the evening and relax. This would be great if you traveled as a couple. There is a restaurant/pizzeria right across the street (Trattoria, I believe) with very affordable prices and does not charge for COVER (this is a common concept when you dine in Italy, more so in Venice). This could be convenient when you return in the evening tired from sight-seeing. Or you could order food for take-out and have it with your partner on the balcony! Staff was very friendly and helpful. They were always happy to provide useful suggestions and directions. My room was tidied every day and it could not have been kept better. The complimentary breakfast that they provide is extremely good. This came in handy as I was mostly seeing places. After a good breakfast, I could postpone my meal until early in the evening concentrating more on sight-seeing and worrying little about where or when I would eat next. If I needed, I could grab a quick bite and go on. For the price you pay for this hotel, I think this is definitely worth it. If I ever get back to Florence, I won't mind staying here again.

I needed a place close to my daughter's apartment so I choose this location whiich was perfect. I had a single and very typical small, small room. I am lucky I am not a typical larger american because the shower was exactly 24"x24". All and all a good value, good central location, morning breakfast was good. It was good, not great just good and that was all I was looking for.

The only positive thing about this hotel is that it is situated 2 minutes from the train station. Otherwise, the first night: we didn't have hot water (they fixed that for the second and last night). But the huge problem is the bathroom...smelled like a public restroom (or worse) and let the room smelling as well! Out of all the hotels I booked in Italy (had about the same budget for all), this is the only one I would NOT recommend.

Location of hotel is great and only a short walk from the central train station and easy walk to sights. Clean and tidy enough. Breakfasts adequate. Would stay again.

Nice and clean hotel which is 5 minutes walking distance to the central train station, and 10 minutes walk to the Domus & Shopping area. Very centralized locatIon. There is a lift; so no need to drag your bags up the stairs to the high floors. Rooms have sufficient amenities like refrigerator & safe. Reception provides good enough service; such as calling a cab that arrives within 5 minutes. However the price is a little on the high side for single bedroom.

Book this hotel for it's excellent location. The train station is just 250m to 300m away. The facilities are adequate and functional, after all you are there just to sleep before moving on to the next day's programme. But the reception staff's attitude is horrendous. When we reached the train station from Pisa, it was pouring. I walked to the hotel to borrow umbrellas so that the others in my party need not walk in the pouring rain with their luggages. Their reply - We don't lend umbrellas to our clients. We are not asking for the sky for crying out loud!

Very pleasant hotel in a fantastic location, just minutes from the train station, San Lorenzo and the other main sights in Florence. Staff very friendly and helpful and buffet breakfast of high quality. Ideal for a short break to this magnificent city.

Buffet breakfast the same all throughout. Wifi available only through costly purchase of card; still it didn't work! Only a few TV channels available and only CNN as the sole English channel. Funny smell in the bathrooms (I requested a bigger room since I was given a small one at the back). Fortunately, the new room had a terrace with a magnificent view of the Duomo and another church, which made up for the rest. On the whole, fantastic location--near the train station, the central market and historical landmarks!

This hotel is close to the main railway station yet within easy walking of the main sights. The single room I had was small, and the showe was clearly intended for someone half my size, but let out onto a rooftop patio at least twice the size of the room with a spectacular view over the Basillica and cathedral. Just the ticket after a hard day sightseeing - and really helped make it a pleasurable experience.

Easy walking distance to the rest of Florence - but that's not hard! Several restaurants and cafes in the street and round the corner. There's a supermarket turn right outside and right again, on the left, much bigger inside than it looks from outside. Some staff were a bit offhand, not acknowledging that they were letting a queue build up at reception, and there were not enough serving the breakfast to keep the tables cleared and bring fresh supplies.

One of the best hotels for service. First room had a bad smell, we were moved promptly to room 208 which was large and great facilities. We forgot a ring at the hotel after checkout, staff were able to locate and hold until our return. Highly recommended!

well situated, good price and positive service experience. We were moved from our first room into a larger brigher room with a great view of Duomo. The first room bath had a large rust hole which leaked to the room below when I ran a bath!!. Breakfast was very adequate. The only real negative was an extremely hard, uncomfortable bed. Still good spot for the money
