Hotel Machiavelli Palace: A Very Cheap Stay in the Heart of Florence

What do I need to know before I stay at the hotel?

The Hotel Machiavelli Palace is a 3-star hotel with a lot to offer besides cheap rooms. The building, standing since the fourteenth century, when it was a nun's convent, and later a palace for two noble families, still has its original edifice with coat of arms. Much of the inside reflects Florence history: the architecture is complete with frescoes, coffered ceilings, Tuscan stone ornaments, terracotta and Carrara marble, and antique furniture. Every room has unique decor.

Is the hotel in a good area?

Hotel Machiavelli Palace reviews praise its location right in the city center of Florence above all. However, the on-site amenities include 24-hour reception, bar service, consierge service, and room service. The hotel also partners with local restaurants that provide discounts to guests.

What are the Rates Like?

Because it's a 3-star hotel, the Machiavelli Palace is able to offer better rates than some other hotels in this expensive area. The cheapest single room is just under $60 a night, a fantastic deal even for a 3-star. You may not get all the amenities of a fancier hotel, but the cost of a room includes free Wi-Fi and breakfast buffet as well as other courtesies depending on the number of nights you book.

What's the Bottom Line?

You can still find luxury at the Hotel Machiavelli Palace. Cordial staff are always around to help you book restaurants and tours of the city and address any problems with your room. Room service and in-room massages are available. Choose a room with a terrace to view the beautiful terracotta rooftops of Florence.
