Hotel Orto De Medici
Ranked #40 of 409 Hotels in Florence
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 August 2013 via mobile

The three of us stayed here in August (although during a major heat wave) the stay was perfect. It's situated in a great location. I know lots of reviews say that. But it really was. The furthest thing to walk to was maybe 35 mins away, which when walking isn't all that long because you're distracted by the views along the way. It was only 5 mins away from the leather market and stores and maybe 7 if that from the Duomo...which I must say is absolutely stunning!! We didn't use any transportation except to get from the rental car drop off to the hotel. Our room on the 4th floor was very spacious. Super high ceilings. Clean. Air conditioned. Quiet. Comfortable. Would definitely recommend. We thought it was a nice touch that they had Popsicles for the guests when they came in...and trust me after 38 degree weather it was heavenly! Breakfast in the morning was nice too! Have no complaints. If I were to return. Knowing other areas etc. I would still want to stay here. They also have a computer and printer for the guests which is nice.

This hotel is quirky (in a good way). Not your standard Euro-box. The conversion of old building into modern accommodation has been very successful, and makes for a tranquil and relaxing place for your stay in Florence. Wi-Fi well-sorted and included in price, breakfast limited but good quality, all spotlessly clean. Great location - although it is a couple of minutes (not more) walk to the popular areas of town, it is perfectly quiet. As you can tell, we really enjoyed it, and unreservedly recommend to other travellers.

After a few rather disappointing nights in Rome I wasn't holding out much hope for this hotel being much better. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. The place had a nice atmosphere that really went well with the City. It had a cozy little breakfast in the morning. The mattresses aren't that cozy but we were generally so dead tired by the time we got back at night that it didn't matter. The one odd thing about the hotel is that it doesn't have your typical card key for doors. I got a regular room key and it had essentially this anchor attached to it...one of the people we were traveling with explained that we were supposed to turn the key into the front desk when leaving for the day. I would have been lugging that thing around all day if I hadn't been told that. Other plus is that it is not that far of a walk from the main train station. For that matter the whole city was easily within walking distance for most average people even while it was brutally hot (topped a 100 every day we were there). Public fountains aren't as numerous as in Rome but they do exist and we made sure to fill up regulary.

Great to know we surprised you and you enjoyed your overall stay. As for the key situation. You're right it is quiet heavy. We explain at check-in the key must be left at the desk every time you leave the hotel. Thank you again for the feedback.
Kind Regards,

Nice breakfast (included in price), can easily walk to any of the major attractions. Staff was friendly and accommodating. The junior suite is quite large (bigger than some studio apartments), and the double is still a very adequate size. Beautiful courtyard. Grocery and other shopping are nearby, on the same street. In-room wifi was good. In-room refrigerator with mini-bar. Very nice bathrooms.

This was a great hotel for our family during our 4 day stay in Florence. The staff was always friendly and very helpful. They made great restaurant recommendations, which I think is unusual. We stayed at other hotels while we were in Italy and this hotel was by far the best value for the cost.

We booked this Hotel on Lastminute.com and managed to secure a very good deal it was around £75 a night for a double room and breakfast. So I was expecting a basic hotel but what we found was a very charming hotel in a good area. I like the area as it was walking distance to everything but was away from all the tourists. Breakfast was good (being English I did miss my eggs and bacon but that was never expected!) Our room was very clean with a beautifuly marbled bathroom. The temperarture was 37 outside but our AC worked very well. Two free glasses of prosecco the evening we arrived made us feel and we could enjoy them on the lovely patio. The only Negative was our room faced other rooms and so we did not have a view but we did not expect this either. Thank You Hotel Orto De Medici

I would definitely recommend this hotel, for location, cost and the beautiful rooms. The staff at the hotel made us extremely welcome, and evening resturant recommendations were spot on. I will 100% be going back.

We had the courtyard rooms, which I would recommend very modern and clean.

You will not be disappointed
