    Everything is quite good, clean, breakfest and so on. Central market at the corner of hotel - only 20 steps from hotel door.

    We stayed in a room on Floor 1. There was a smell in the bathroom which smelled like a sewer. They never got rid of it even tho we complained.

    Very good

    Great location - right near train station, central market and many restaurants. About a 15-20 minute walk to Uffizi Gallery area and 10 minute walk to Accademia Gallery. I was able to get a double room for single price - good size & comfortable room.

    Even being a very petite person I found the shower to extra tiny (it was maybe 2ft by 2ft - enclosed in glass).

    Fabulous

    Excellent location (close to main train station, restaurants, stores etc), satisfactory room size, very clean rooms.

    Poor breakfast for its price, small common rooms (breakfast area, terrace) for the number of rooms, expensive wifi service.

    Very clean and surprisingly large room, excellent continental breakfast, friendly helpful staff, great location. This was our second time staying there; both were very enjoyable visit.

    The bed was quite hard.

    Superb

    We loved our stay at Machiavelli Palace. The position is perfect and right in the middle of all the sights and close to the rail station. Would recommend this hotel very strongly as we have stayed here three times and hope to return next year.

    Very good location. Near the station and in easy walking distance of the main attractions.

    Beds were very hard and uncomfortable. I guess for one night its not a problem but I stayed for five nights and the beds were hard, the rooms hot and the walls paper thin. You will also smell breakfast being booked at 5 am! Not great when trying to sleep!

    Exceptional

    Besides being a very friendly, comfortable hotel it has an excellent location. Very convenient to many sights and minutes from the train station. As a handicapped traveler, it was nice to have a room close to the elevator. It was reasonably priced and included breakfast.

    Very good

    The hotel is a 5-10 minute walk from the main station (Firenze SMN), and an easy walk to all the main attractions. The breakfast is plentiful, but limited in choice. The bedroom was clean and comfortable, with a modern bathroom.

    The bedroom decor was a little dated, but who goes to Florence to look at their hotel room?

  • 8.2
    Fabulous

    I stayed there for about a fortnight with my family.I loved the place for its excellent location,as all sorts of commuting agents were just a minutes walk My wife loved the place because of its old age look and it was like staying in one of an old Florentine homes with all modern facilities.Travelling was made easy due to the location.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    The location is ideal, just two blocks from the main train station, one block from the market and within walking distance of museums and sights of interest. It has a generous breakfast buffet and the rooms are quiet in spite of being on a busy street.

    The reception staff was not very attentive, doing paperwork rather than attending to the guests. There was no access to the computer during our stay as the computer was out of order and remained so during our entire visit. We were asked to go to the sister hotel down the block where only on terminal was available. The was also a charge for usage.
