“Our favorite hotel during our stay in Italy.”
Reviewed 2 January 2013

This hotel was beautiful and my family of four was very comfortable. Very helpful staff and a good breakfast buffett. The hotel only serves a breakfast, but with the location of the hotel there is no need - there are plenty of great places to eat in the area.
The location is wonderful- all the great tourist sites are within walking distance.

As a side note: If you drive into Florence the hotel will give you directions of places to park your car (paid parking). Make sure you register your car with with parking garage and do not drive you car in the city center (unless it is a holiday)- you will get tickets.

We stayed here for 3 days at Christmas in Room 41 on the fourth floor. The room was a very good size, clean and the balcony was nice, though the weather was too cold to use it unfortunately.

The beds were not that comfortable and a shower curtain rather than the half glass wall would have been preferential in the shower (it was very hard to keep the floor dry).

The best thing about this hotel is the location. It is on a fairly quiet side street but a 10 - 15 min walk to the hub of the city and the main train station. There is also a self-service laundry down the street, which was very handy for us. All the staff were very nice and helpful.

The included continental breakfast was ok though some hot options would have been nice.

Room Tip: If the weather is nice, getting a room with a balcony would be nice. We chose the room on the top f...

During our vacation in Italy, we stayed, among other hotels, at the Hotel Orto de 'Medici in Florence. This is an excellent hotel in a building of the sixteenth century super maintained, clean and warm. The hotel staff is very helpful and considerate. And finally, there is a great breakfast.

We have arranged 2 writing courses at Hotel Orto dei Medici. The hotel is very nice, and the location is superb. The rooms are spacious, the breakfast is very good. Nice little garden and a big terrasse. Very nice and service-minded staff.

Short distance to the centre.

I have also stayed here several times for private travel. Wonderful!

I have already booked 4 another stays at this hotell:)

We upgraded our standard room to a deluxe room and the room was humongous and had modern decor; in short, amazing!! well worth the small upgrade fees. The room had spacious closet, lounge chair, desk and flat screen TV. The huge bathroom had shower, tub and double sink. The room was very clean and all the staffs were very friendly and so helpful. Wi-fi worked consistently in our room. Breakfast was not too great however it was acceptable. Location is excellent, we walked everywhere, even to SMN train station! I would definitely stay at this hotel again when we come back to Florence and will highly recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: Choose the new rooms facing the garden

Great location in the centre of Florence, close to Michelangelo's David, short walk to main station and the leather markets. Staff were polite, not overly friendly but helpful. Breakfast is good, considering it is included in the room rate it is quite pleasant for a short stay, any more than 3 days you make get a little bored. The hotel itself is lovely, we appreciated the complimentary book on its history, room was very comfortable and nicely furnished. Good value for money. Would stay here again.
