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!< …
... people laugh, I love to make people feel special and loved, and I want to inspire people...to some extent. I'm still very young, so I'm still making mistakes and learning all the time.
There are many days where I feel lost, not knowing if what I'm doing in life is "right." I guess that's pretty typical for a 21 year old. I shouldn't worry and I shouldn't care right now because I know everything always works out ...
... time thinking dark, unkind thoughts about two small kids who yelled (for attention) and cried (for the smack) all the way back to Rome. Mum more interested in her phone.
We both loved the day in Florence - the vibe was much more gentle and happy and easier to get around (yes I know its mostly flat- that helps) than the crazy manic disorganisation of Rome which feels very much as if its all just hanging together by the skin of its teeth.
... and salty taste.
On the other hand, they seemed blown away by the smells when I cooked for myself. Meals such as roasted and potatoes with carrots and onions and a creamy mushroom sauce had them watching with jealousy. Elena has asked that I help her to get her family eat more vegetables, so we have big plans for cooking in the near future. I experimented for dinner tonight with green beans sauteed in minced garlic, ...
... also snacked on the most amazing bruschetta and took so many pictures. The ride back home was a riot and also a slightly blurry memory. We stopped next to a hill for a bathroom break and most everyone got out of bus, climbed the hill and ******. I myself just climbed to the to say I made, but I didn't actually use mother natures restroom. So many people were falling ...
