“Solid but dull”
Reviewed 31 May 2012

Wikitravel describes 3 star hotels as being solid but dull and this describes Hotel dei Macchiaioli perfectly. The room we stayed in was large but the bed was super hard and the pillows were paper thin. The bathroom was very clean but the shower was tiny. The aircon struggled to work and the wall underneath it was discoloured from mold. Fortunately we did long day tours while in Florence so we didn't have to spend long in our room. Good wifi though.

Dear guest,

thank you for your review !

We are sorry that you haven't had a great stay with us :(
We have checked on the webpage you mentioned in which, as you write, you saw our Hotel. We are sorry but we couldn't find our Hotel in that webpage you mind. Our Hotel is not listed , or at least we didn't find it.
Are you sure it was us?

It is nice that you liked your large room, as you write :)
Of course everybody can feel a different kind of bed it depends on which bed one is use to sleep at home.
Our beds are brend new, maybe this make the difference with an old bed.

About the " paper thin" pillows, if you had said it, we would have given you other pillows. Sorry.

Clean bathroom but small shower? We don't know in which room of our hotel you have been, actually we don't think that our showers are small but we respect your opinion :)

We will do all our best to let you have a nicer stay if you decide to spend another holiday with us !

Kind regards

Stayed here for two nights at the end of our honeymoon around Tuscanny & Florence and we really loved it. The best bit about this hotel in my opinion it's central location! Only a short stroll down the road will find you in the centre of historic Florence with all the sights and sounds it has to offer.

The hotel is also really near some of the best (less tourirty) restraunts and the hotel staff were extremely helpfull in pointing us in the right direction for some top quality nosh!

Yes you need to walk up some flights of stairs to get to the reception but that didnt bother us as we aren't that over the hill yet! If you have an aversions to stairs Florence probably isnt the city for you anyway!!! "What no elevator up the duomo?"

Room was really clean, cool and spacious with AC, Sky TV, mini bar etc, etc.

Breakfast was good with a nice variety of breads, cold meats, cheeses, pastries, cereals, teas, juices and coffee and the room had beautiful frescos on the walls and ceillings!

This hotel has been open for 3 years. The rooms are a nice size with wifi. The ceilings in the breakfast room and library are beautiful hand painted from artists that use to live here. the buffet breakfast that is included in your room charge is extensive and excellent. The day manager was very nice to put the breakfast out early because we had early tickets to the Uffuzi.This is a perfect location to walk all over Florence.

My husband & I stayed in this hotel on our recent trip in April 2012. The hotel is beautifully decorated and the staff is very friendly and helpful. We took a walking city tour with Paolo Russo who works at the hotel and it was a great way to get acquainted with the city and its history. Paolo was very knowledgeable and the tour was definately one of the hightligts of our stay in Florence. The hotel is in a great location near the Duomo and the staff even helped us get tickets for an Opera at one of the local churches. We were able to walk everywhere in the city. We would definately stay here again on our next trip to the great city of Florence.

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in May 2012. The room was pleasant and clean (no frescoes) and spacious. I agree with other travellers - there are about 3 flights of stairs to carry your luggage up and down and at no stage was I offerred assistance (sole female traveller). The front desk staff were pleasant and friendly but often engaged in personal conversations. The bed was 2 single mattresses put together. It could get quite noisy due to slamming doors and shoes on tiled floors. I could also hear conversation of the people in the room next door. The free wifi was good.
