Machiavelli Palace, Tuscany Italy
★ ★ ★
A pleasant enough option which is not as palatial as the name might suggest. Its a fairly unelaborate relaxed option with a feeling of age given by wall paintings and occasional antiques, the central location suits those wanting the hustle and bustle on their doorstep and the delights of the city within easy reach.
Unremarkable corner building with retail outlets flanking the small canopied entrance at ground level.
Property type: Hotel
Simple welcoming interior consists of a small reception area, intimate cosy bar housing rustic furnishings and a slightly functional breakfast room with terracotta tiled floor overlooked by wall paintings.
A pleasant fourth floor terrace has a handful of tables and chairs, a couple of sun loungers and attractive potted plants and shrubs – but offers no real views.
Area Type: 500 yds northwest of Piazza del Duomo, in the thick of the action on a busy noisy shopping thoroughfare with shops, bars and restaurants in immediate vicinity. The sights of the Ponte Vecchio Bridge are ¾ mile away. The main train station is 200 yds. Bus stop is 100 yds.
