“Very enjoyable stay at Hotel Orto De Medici”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

My family and I enjoyed the stay at Hotel Orto De Medici. The hotel is in a convenient location in Florence, just 10 minutes walk from the duomo. Front desk staff was very helpful, rooms were clean, and breakfast was very good. I'd recommend that you take advantage of the parking service offered by the hotel if you have a car.... it costs the same as parking yourself in nearby parkades and saves you the hassle of parking in the crowded city centre.

We expected a 3 star standard hotel but i must say that the standard is way over our expectations! Large room. Like a mini suite. Got a room on the fourth floor facing the garden so the room is quiet. Breakfast VERY good, tasty coffee and freshly made orangejuice. We are so pleased and glad that we are staying 4 nights at this wonderful hotel. Location is great and staff very friendly!

I stayed here last April and just didn't get around to doing reviews until now. The hotel is beautiful, historic, and I definitely considered this hotel very central. It was a very short walk to il Duomo without having to suffer through all the tourist mania of that particular area. The street was quiet with a few restaurants located on it that also seemed to be frequented by locals. The staff was extremely friendly, warm, and helpful. We stayed in the "Romantic Junior Suite" and now I know rooms in Europe are very small and we were not looking to blow our wallet for a nice room but we booked this because the price was more or less the same as other rooms at hotels that had much more iffier reviews and seemingly smaller rooms. Our room was AMAZING. Super clean, amazing shower, amazing tub, a bathroom that is practically the size of my Manhattan apartment (sad), a giant bedroom area with a King bed, and a walk-in closet. We did not expect this and did not blow our budget on it either.

Room Tip: Romantic Junior Suite on the ground floor

Thanks for this amazing review! Holiday is the time when you go further your usual experience and we are really pleased to had such a nice time at the Orto de' Medici in the Junior Suite. Booking in advance is a great option to save a lot of money and get these special rooms big deals like you did.

The hotel was excellent:location, size of room, views and very much needed air con in july! What was disappointing was the breakfast offered as there was little choice. However, the breakfadt staff were great and offered first class service. Front desk staff was a bit hit and miss, gents were polite but female was abrupt. Overall, would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: If possibke ask for street view with balcony

Hotel Orto de Medici has a great historic feel to it. We stayed in one of the basic rooms which offered more than enough room for our 3 nights in Florence. Rooms were well maintained and cleaned daily. Breakfast was more than sufficient and included hard boiled eggs, pastry items, fresh squeezed OJ, salumi, mozzarella, breads as well as an assortment of coffees and teas. The hotel was not overwhelmingly big, but offered you enough space to enjoy your stay peacefully. On a side note, the staff members were always extremely cordial and helpful.

My husband and I had a beautiful time at Hotel Orto De Medici. The staff was very helpful and receptive especially to the fact that we did not speak much Italian as we live in the United Sates. The hotel room was chic and reminded me of a New York City Loft style. That bathroom was so wonderfully designed especially given the age of the hotel. We were close to everything yet still had peace and quiet when needed. We actually blew off our plans one night and stayed in the hotel room with the windows open listening to the rain and thunderstorm outside. The breakfast was delicious and filling with many options. I recommend this place to all travelers especially due to the historical aspect of the Medici family and this actual building.

Thank you to the staff owner and help! Grazie!

Florence is a walkable city, and hotel is close to Academia and Mercado Centrale. Common areas very nice, room and bath slightly dark and worn. Breakfast was very nice. Loved the fresh squeezed orange juice and sitting on the patio.

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
