“Wonderful Experience”
Reviewed 12 February 2014

This was my husband's first trip to Florence and he absolutely loved it. The hotel was a bit off the beaten path, but we enjoyed the walk.
The staff was friendly, the room was large with a comfy bed. We had requested a superior room with a terrace balcony which was lovely in the evenings to sit and see the sights from above.
Breakfast was nice - the fresh orange juice being a highlight.
On our next trip we will definitely stay in Orto de Medici again.

Room Tip: Request the superior rooms - they have terrace balconies

I'm happy your husband had a great time in Florence. The hotel is about a 10 to 15 minute walk from all the major sites, not too bad, it is also a nice way to explore the city. Thank you for the review.
Best Regards,

My husband and I were on our honeymoon in Italy and this hotel was by far the best hotel we stayed at. They really made our stay special by doing little things that were really unexpected. They were incredibly generous. The hotel itself was beautiful and the staff was really friendly. Definitely will come back if we ever go back to florence :)

This was our second trip to Florence in hot weather. We were so happy with our accommodations in a garden room located in the back of the Hotel Orto De Medici--it was elegant and very clean and relatively large compared with other European sized rooms. This part of the hotel is more modern, while a breakfast buffet was served in a lovely palazzo room with the option of eating on a terrace balcony. The hotel also has two public reading rooms and computers available in the elegant lobby. The hotel is about a 20-minute walk from the train, 2 blocks away from Accademia and the Fra Angelico museum, but a bit of a longer hike to the Duomo than hotels closer to the train station. The air-conditioning was just right, the bed was very comfortable, we had a large desk area and good internet service. The bathroom was commodious with good hot water and and we loved our maid who gave us a little gift when we left. The desk staff spoke excellent English and also helped us to iron out a problem with a rental car. We liked the free popsicles in the lobby and a welcome drink on the terrace. There was an elevator. If we come back to Florence, we would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Garden rooms are larger and modern, we did not see the rooms in the older part of the hotel.

Dear Denuth,
It's strange to read now, during the cold winter, about Air conditioning and popsicles! But I am really happy to read how your good memories about Florence and Hotel Orto de' Medici have not faded away in these months.
Thanks for sharing all this!

Conveniently located small hotel near the train station. Easy walking to everything you want to see in Florence. Beautiful breakfast area with a fabulous view, fresh-squeezed orange juice on the spot, and friendly and helpful staff, but the rooms could use a redo; one of ours had a funky smell.

Room Tip: Try to avoid rooms with windows facing the street noise, which only ceases from about midnight to 6...

I stayed at this Hotel in July last year. The location isn’t too bad, depending on what it is you are in Florence to see, but it is likely that from any hotel you should be prepared for plenty of walking. On the positive side most of Florence’s streets are pedestrianized so walking anywhere is not a problem. There is also plenty to see so you tend not to notice the distances.
I found the hotel staff to be extremely friendly and the breakfast on offer was of a good standard. Rooms have air conditioning which is extremely welcome in the hot summer months. My only complaint is that the shower cubicle did not close completely and water easily trickled through the gap on to the bathroom floor. On balance though, a very enjoyable stay in a hotel with nice roof terraces.

I'm happy to read you had an overall great stay. I apologize for the small maintenance problem. It is however appreciated that our guests let us know about any problems they may have. Yes, we are about a 10 to 20 minute walk from all the main sites, not too bad. I guarantee you will discover many amazing things while walking the streets of Florence. Hope to see you again maybe this summer.
Ciao from Florence!

I got a really good rate on this hotel right after New Year's when my previously-booked B&B cancelled my reservation (a company wanted to buy out the entire B&B, so I was left on the street). I was very happy with Orto de Medici, though I do prefer smaller hotels and B&Bs, but the location was good, relatively central, and the rooms were clean and of a good size. I had big problems regulating the thermostat - if I had the heat on at all it became so hot I had to open the window, which let bugs in, but if I changed it even slightly the heat didn't come on at all and it was cold outside! The staff was very courteous and available 24/7, the wifi was strong and the breakfast was nice. The common areas of the hotel are beautiful and on a glance the rooms are as well, but when you look closer little things are broken or worn - a knob here, the corner of a desk there - not a big deal, really, and nothing that affected my stay.
