Good Hotel but racist staff :(
Its a good Hotel. We got a room with nice big double bed. Bathroom was nice and clean as well. Temperature control in the room. However, the staff at the breakfast table in the morning seems a bit harsh (more racist). The host would go to all around our table and ask whether people need coffee or tea without ever coming to us as if we are totally invisible. We thought of complaining but the room and facilities were good so didn't bother.
A little far from everything... But otherwise a very comfortable hotel
We stayed at the Michaelangelo for 2 nights in early May. We had a comfortable king room. The hotel offers parking but it was pretty steep at euros a night. Luckily we got a pretty decent weekend rate from starhotels.com.
The hotel offers a decent breakfast ... but doesn't really offer a reasonable dinner option. Yes, the restaurant is open then... but the menu is very limited and you would likely be the only one in the place.
The biggest downside is the location. It's a long walk from the central area and Taxi rides are amazing expensive for such a short ride. Especially since you have to *call* them to the hotel for a nearly 3 euro charge and then if it's sunday there's an additional charge, and if it's nighttime there's an additional charge...
If you don't mind the walk or riding the bus... stay here... otherwise we recommend looking for someplace a little more central.
perfect value for your money
Starhotel Michelangelo Superb
I placed my tour group in the Michelangelo for our stay in Florence. The hotel lobby is very nice, recently remodeled and the rooms are fantastic for Europe. This is a 4 1/2 Star rated hotel and it is definitely more bang for the buck. It's a very short walk from the city center. The staff was excellent and worked with us by providing a free banquet room. QueensLander Tours' hats off to Starhotel Michelangelo!
Nice 4* hotel
Stayed here in June 03. Excellent hotel ! Room is spacious, and very clean. Bathroom is huge. Breakfast is great and free. The only drawback is the location (about 15-20 mins walking to Duomo). But there's a good small coffee place & casual italian restaurant that worth to stop by.
Very Nice Stay !
We had a great deal here off of Expedia and took a chance - I'm really glad we did. First, know that this place is a bit off the center of Florence - if you just arrived at the train station - for the first time to the hotel - take a cab. i KNOW it seems like it should be close - but take a taxi for the $5 and save yourself a lot of hassle.
Although it was a bit removed, there is a very convienent bus that takes you right to the center of the city in like 5 minutes - A bit tricky to get back so be watchful.
Staff was very nice -room very clean and comfortable. We stayed in middle of heat wave and air conditioners were great relief. They had a very solid cont. breakfast that was included in the rate. nice and modern and i would recommend if you are willing to take a bus (or taxi i guess) - but for the price we got - it was well worth it !
What a lovely experience it was arriving at the Hotel Michelangelo. What lovely staff and what an amazing hotel. Rooms are lavish with great air conditioning and everything you could wish for is provided. TV's in the bathrooms, power showers etc. The hotel is close to every main attraction and also extremely close to the train station. We will definately be returning here for some more Hotel Michelangelo speciality treatment.
Nice hotel, recently renovated. Friendly staff. Quiet neighborhood. Would stay here again.

Gord and I took a bus downtown and while we were traveling to downtown a young woman tried to pickpocket Gord. Luckily he had a double pocket so she was in a pocket with no wallet. I made some comments to her and she disappeared to the back of the bus. You really must make sure that you are aware of your surroundings and your personal items...WOW!< …
... bus ride away in the town of Fiesole. The city resides atop a hill overlooking Florence. Fiesole is known for its Etruscran ruins. We did spend a few hours in their museum and walking the ancient streets. As evening came we dined there in town with the locals. By bedtime I am sure we had walked three to four miles and ascended and descended a minimum of two hundred steps. GOOD NIGHT! ...

There is a one a toilet ata MacDonalds - buta you musta buy sommthing first." We look. This MacDonalds is tiny and there is only one person serving. And we can see fifteen more buses coming down the road.

I employed Sylvia’s recommendations at lunchtime when I
wandered just outside the city center to the Piazza della Passera, a miniature

up into Il Magazzino (translation: The Warehouse), as I was told to do.

I tried to use the washing machine once and probably put too much washing powder and switch the wrong mode (instructions in Italian) for washing just few pairs of socks and and tee shirt, it went on for hours and wouldn't stop. Then finally I opened it and the water wouldn't drain. What a disaster.
