The good points were the location, the lovely breakfast (with friendly staff) and the outdoor terrace where we could eat in the morning, which I believe is unusual in Florence. Our bathroom was huge and really lovely with a large shower room, separate toilet and bath. I think that was due to the location in the hotel on a corner of the ground floor facing the small courtyard. The bed was huge, comfortable and with good quality bedding. There were computers and a printer for guest use and free wifi.
Bad points, the reception staff didn't crack a smile for the three days we were there and while they weren't openly rude they were not friendly compared to the other hotels we stayed at in tuscany. The room was noisy because it was next to the door leading to the courtyard, but I would recommend a room around the courtyard the other rooms seemed very peaceful, well most of the time! It was classed as a deluxe but it was actually quite spartan with very little light. One final point, please get some better pillows the were like sacks of potatoes.
- 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
