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.

... I wasn’t the only one affected by the smoke, a proor woman right by the window was choking as well. We had to leave. Back at the hotel I used my inhaler for the first time on the trip (yes, it was THAT bad).
Still early, and not stuffed, we decide to go for a gelato. Gelateria dei Neri, here we come!! Gelato in the Piazza della Signoria listening to a guitarist play – sheer bliss. I don’t want this night to ...
... and Germany – we are pretty sure we are going to do this for about 10 days.

This morning we slept in and went into Pistoia to do washing – couldn’t find it! Will try again later with a map. We did manage to do the shopping and tried the CONAD centre instead this time. Busy day after the public holiday – not as large and trickier to navigate. Did just have a chat with the Austrian couple who are ...
... summer swelter! After a much needed rest at the apartment on our first morning, following on from a total of 16 hours train time to get from Prague to Florence (plus 4hrs wait time in suburban Vienna between journeys), we steeled ourselves for the afternoon heat and walked from our apartment down to Ponte Vecchio, the city's only surviving Medieval retailer bridge, dating back to the 1300's. From there we wandered down to the Galileo Museum, the home of Florentine ...
... cone with 2 scoops coming in at 9 euros, with our total at 12 euros for ice cream we both looked at each other and tried not to laugh at the ridiculous price we had just paid! After being slightly sick of pizza and pasta we stumbled across a restaurant called Dim Sum- a Chinese place close by. We got more than we bargained for and it was all made fresh in front of us. The chef stood behind a glass wall and hand made our fresh dumplings as starter. It was by ...
Yesterday was my Florence for Foodies tour. It was so much fun and a nice break from art and churches. Sam was our guide. She is a native Florentine who lived for 10 years in London, where she met her Kiwi husband. They eventually moved back to Florence where she gives these wonderful tours. It was almost 5 hours of various food, wine and tastings. We started out in a very old pasticceria, filled with locals, where we had a ...
