We stayed at Orto de Medici for one one night in October. The hotel is lovely - big, clean, modern rooms with very comfortable beds. We stayed in a garden view room and had a lovely balcony all to ourselves - really lovely room. One thing I loved about the room was a separate bathroom to toilet.
The hotel is definitely within walking distance to everything. The Duomo would be 5 min walk away as would Ponte Vecchio etc. The historical centre of Florence is very close by so it's a great hotel to stay at as it's much more reasonably priced than hotels around Piazza della Repubblica and equally as nice.
In my opinion, the only shortfall was the breakfasts but I think this says more about me than the hotel. In the two weeks prior to our stay at Orto de Medici, we had been staying at small, intimate family run hotels in Venice, Bologna and around Tuscany and had become very used to hand made coffees to order. Needless to say, in comparison, the coffees were not up to scratch but I think I'm being a bit spoilt!
I highly recommend the hotel for it's location and the rooms. All the staff are really friendly and helpful and I would definitely stay there again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Florence Hotel Orto de' Medici’s location is ideal because while located in the “historic center” of Florence it is just outside the noisy hustle and bustle…which is only a short walk away. When walking through our hotel in Florence, you really do feel like you are in a classic and upscale historic building. The front desk staff is very helpful and friendly, and from the moment you arrive you are made to feel very welcome. Each room is uniquely and elegantly appointed, a restful oasis for the busy traveler. The bathroom is very spacious and the shower is wonderful after a long day of sightseeing. Breakfast, with plenty to select from, is served in a cozy room that spills out into a welcoming patio and a beautiful little garden. The hotel lobby and reading rooms are a nice place to relax after a full day of sightseeing (plus free internet - either wifi or with brand new Apple computers). ... more less
