Historical Traveler Reviews Pancioli Majestic Hotel Florence
Stay clear of this hotel !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The worst hotel I've ever stayed in!
It was damp,musty and in need of some serious renovations. The lighting was appalling. The beds needed to be thrown out- there was a piece of plywood under each mattress for support??????
What was Globus thinking in booking this hotel????
Yes, the location was good- you're in the middle of the city- but I was so worried that I was going to pick up some disease from the lack of cleanliness of this hotel.
Do not consider staying in this hotel!
We stayed here for a night. The rooms were comfortable and clean. What pleased us most during our stay is the availabilty of two toilets in each room. Adjoining rooms are also available on request, which we found most useful as this meant my 17 month old niece had easy access to her grandparents. The baby cot provided was also sturdy. We certainly had a pleasant stay.
The hotel is about a 4 minute walk to the train station.
Not what we expected
I was not at all impressed with this hotel. The room was not very clean, the shower was rotted, and the beds were very worn. It was an old hotel. The dinner we ate in the hotel was not good either. There was a lot of street noise at night. The only good thing about this hotel is the location.
Old, but fine
The location is the Hotel's best asset. It is old, but clean and charming. Noisy at night, because you are near the train station. However, it is not unsafe and I would stay again for the location alone. Food was average, but the staff is helpful and friendly. We were warned not to use the nearby ATM, as it eats cards, but to wait and get more "in town" in Florence. Pretty average, but not bad.
Scary, is the only word for this hotel. Location right in the middle of a very busy square, trains, busses, taxis, scooters.....all night long ! Homeless people make their beds right outside of our window, at the bank below. No phone access, except in the room, which didn't work. Dark, dreary decorations, in need of upgrade. I will say the food at the restaurant was good. At least that's something!
Majestic charming? not!
We were on a Globus tour a few weeks ago. Our tour guide told us that the Hotel Majestic was not like our American hotels, but it was a great location and "charming." We were extremely disappointed. There are many hotels with great locations in Florence. This hotel is sorely in need to refurbishing. The airconditioning hardly works (it was 85) and breakfast was meager. To top it all off, I got locked in a bathroom off the bar and had to scream and bang on the door for 10 minutes until someone finally came and went to get help! The next morning I told our tour guide that Americans wouldn't call this charming, we would call it seedy!
Comfort and Location
We stayed at Grand Hotel Majestic on May24 and 25, 2004. The hotel is an older, well established and centrally located facility within easy walking distance of major attractions in Florence. We had a comfortable room; the only drawback was excessive street noise. Our meals there were very good, and we would certainly consider staying there again if returning to Florence.
A weekend of culture
Perfect for a weekend of culture and sightseeing. Near enough to the major sights to walk comfortably. Hotel was very comfortable and food was good, although the breakfast was a bit variable.
Nice hotel close to San Lorenzo Market
Second leg of our two week honeymoon trip to Italy. We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights and found the rooms to be clean and spacious. We even had two full size bathrooms. One with the tub and another for the shower. We even had two full size beds. The only let down is that our air conditioning does not seem to work very well, but the staff was very helpful and even gave us two bottles of wine when we checked out.
The BEST part was, they were able to get us reservations to Italy's best restaurant, Enoteca Pinchiorri (the most I have ever spent on dinner for two. Inn in Little Washington, eat your heart out ) The hotel is within walking distance to the train station and close to everything (restaurants, shopping and site-seeing). Looking forward to staying there again.
Neither grand or majestic
Arriving at this 4 star hotel we expected a good size clean room. Not the case - it was dirty and desperately needed refurbishment, as was the case with the entire hotel. Our air conditioning didn't work so we had to move rooms. The underground parking is another 20 Euros on top of the room.

... the view we went back down along the river and into the Spiritu Santo area to try and find a restaurant that our host had recommended that specialised in steak florentine which was supposed to be delicious. We wandered for about half an hour or more and finally reached the corner where the restaurant was supposed to be and it was not there. I'm not sure if somebody moved it or whether we had been given the wrong directions but there was only a seedy looking bar on that ...
... The Old Stove, where my roommates have been before. The owners were fun guys and we ended up playing Heads Up and leaving around 3 am.
Friday, September 4th, I woke up around 12 pm, since we didn't have any activities in the morning and I was able to sleep in. We had a cooking class at 2:45 pm at this little place across the Ponte Vechhio. It was awesome. We made an eggplant caprese appetizer, gnocchi for the main course, and tiramisu for dessert!! These professional ...
... Repubblica. This plaza mostly just has shops and restaurants, but it has a carousel which I think is its most defining characteristic. Down the street, we visited another plaza called the Piazza della Signoria, which is famous for having a copy of the David statue as well as replicas of many other sculptures. After walking around we stopped to get our first (of many) gelato. I got the menta, which is basically just mint chocolate chip, and Jordan got cafe or coffee (which ...
... himself and Donatello, paintings by Da Vinci and others who I recognised on the day but can't remember now! Marble inlaid into images on the floor, a hundred heads carved into the pulpit surrounds, stained glass windows, statues of all the disciples, a library with books half as tall as myself, little alcoves where worshippers could go and pray silently and on their own. It was all pretty stunning and everyone was walking around with their ...
... Just like everywhere else so far, the surfaces are not level and everything seems on the verge of falling down. And the wifi was a bit iffy, but it was a hotel in Florence, so a bit of leeway was appropriate. We went out and found some pizza for dinner and Ed had his his first real Italian gelato - which definitely passed the test. We went back to the hotel and read, while also watching American sitcoms with Italian dubbing before having another early ...
