Hotel Orto De Medici
Ranked #38 of 410 Hotels in Florence
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 January 2014

My husband and I had an amazing stay at Hotel Orto de Medici. We visited in May 2013 and stayed 4 nights. Florence is a small, walkable city (especially compared to the others we stayed on our European vacation... London, Paris & Rome). It was a great location. We arrived in Florence around 10pm so we took a taxi from the airport. It was a cheap ride and the driver was fabulous, giving us recommendations of things we should do and places to eat nearby. We arrived at the hotel after a day of traveling and it was so nice. Beautiful lobby and excellent staff working the front desk. Our room was spacious and clean. No view but we didn't care, as we were only in the room to sleep. You get a drink ticket when you arrive as a free Welcome Drink during the happy hour, which was a nice touch. They offer laundry service which was great as we had been traveling over a week by the time we arrived. The front desk made us reservations for restaurants (Il Latini, do it) and were very helpful if we had questions. They were at the desk 24/7 so we felt safe. Beautiful building, I would recommend it to anyone traveling in Florence!

Our stay in this Hotel was most enjoyable. The junior suite was quite large enough for our family of 4. The breakfast was substantial, with plenty of choice. It is near to the Accademia, and to the Duoma. I would have liked to have tea / coffee making facilities in the room

Dear DaveJenJoburg,
Thanks for your review. I am glad yiour family enjoyed the Junior Suite room. We have an "infusion bar" in the wintertime, so you can ask for tea/coffee anytime during your stay.
Thank you!

We loved our rooms. Location near the Market and Academy was a bit quieter than ground zero of the Pont V or Duomo but still convenient.

Breakfast was very good.

WiFi was a little spotty but we found easy places to use it.

Staff was great and helpful and patient.

Do not hesitate to register. IMO a four star experience, hands down.

My family (4 of us) stayed at the hotel Orto de Medici during the week prior to Christmas. Highly recommend this time of year (minimal lines, good value, beautiful, etc). The room was better than the pictures (we stayed in a quad). We were on a top floor and there was a nice albeit indirect view of towers, etc out the window and overlooked the garden courtyard. The room was well heated, quiet and clean. We had internet access that worked well. Ask for adapters at the front desk (we had 4 people's devices...). We had sparkling wine waiting for us in our room and a small fridge. Our room had high ceilings. The beds were ok, the pillows were fine.

There was a nice room to go to on the 2nd floor for reading. The breakfasts were perfect for our family -- simple crescents, muffins, granola, yogurt, great cappacinos, fresh squeezed OJ and pretty good fruit. There were hot things too, but we didn't go that route. The breakfast room had high ceilings and a nice view of the garden. I could imagine how nice this must be in warmer weather. The breakfast saved us a lot of money and was really good.

The staff was friendly and helpful. We arrived earlier than our check in and they stored our luggage, had a map and directed us to where we wanted to go. We stayed for 3 days, then left for Rome to return several days later -- we were able to store some luggage at the hotel. It was waiting for us in our room when we came back. The front desk staff remembered us. It was nice.

I would definitely stay in this hotel again. The only reason I gave it a 4 (instead of a 5) is that the restaurants we wanted to go to were on the other side of the river. This hotel is north of the Duomo and everything is a little bit of a walk. This was not an issue for us, and not really an issue with the hotel. They were great. We enjoyed staying at this hotel over the others on our trip.

Recommended.

Our hotel was located in a great area which was close to restaurants, the street markets, the sites. The staff was very helpful and willing to go beyond their "job descriptions". The reception staff recognized us each time we entered and even held our packages for us while we continued our trips. The room was quiet, the beds were comfortable, the buffet breakfast was filling. Great hotel and we would stay there again if we travel to Florence. We loved Florence. Enjoy yourselves.

We arrived by rail from Venice, and an easy 10 minute walk with our luggage saw us at our hotel, so it's easily located and accessible. The convenient location extends to local tourist sights, and the hotel reception staff are great at giving local advice, maps and information.

The room was very well appointed, with a super sized bed, and kept clean and tidy throughout our stay. Free buffet breakfast (wide variety of choice available), free WIFI at a good speed, make this a boutique hotel worth staying at.
