We recently stayed in Hotel Medici and requested the top floor room with the view of the Duomo.
Reservations were made through their website. We arrived early and as they don't have a proper stored luggage room, we left our luggage in the common lounge area until check in at 2pm.
The hotel has a very convenient location, 15mins walk from the Firenze SMN station, 2 minutes from the Duomo.
We stayed in a double room with ensuite shower (and sink) and shared toilet. It was adequately heated during our winter stay. The room was small but there is space under the bed to store luggage. The double bed is made up of 2 single beds, and we slept fine. No safe available, but this is a 2-star hotel anyway. The toilet is shared with 2 other rooms and we never had to wait to use it, it was always clean.
We stayed in the same room 6 years ago, and as before we enjoyed that the room opens to the terrace and has a wonderful view of the Campanile, and the dome can be seen from one side of the bed. While sleeping conditions were similar this time around, the room quality had deteriorated since our last stay. The drawers of the wardrobe are broken and won't open. There was a lot of paint peeling off the ceiling too. But the major problem with the room would be the shower, which was missing a door and lacking even a shower curtain. At least there was daily housekeeping if you make a mess of the room.
Breakfast was included in the room rate and was very simple, consisting of coffee/tea, bread and jam. It's available from 730am, but did not always start promptly. There was suboptimal heating in the breakfast area. Wifi was available here but not in the room.
As a 2-star hotel with room rate at 45 euros a night, Hotel Medici remains a good option for the budget-minded, considering the location and view from the room. We also like their terrace, but had limited use of it during winter. We would recommend looking for other places though if room quality is of more importance than the outstanding view.
