We just came back from three weeks of cycling through Tuscany which included 4 nights at this hotel in the heart of Florence. We enjoyed a ground floor room which had a slightly higher price tag then our friends paid in the upstairs rooms, but not slogging bags around was quite nice. The room air conditioner worked well in the July heat. The staff was helpful and friendly and the continental breakfast was yummy but some folks struggle with the orange juice squeezer. Watch out for the pigeon bandits while enjoying your breakfast. Those little pirates will steal everything off your plate if you leave the table unattended for a second. Plenty of excellent dinner choices near by. Close proximity to all of the Florence sights is well worth the price. Ciao!

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper floors may save you a few Euros.

Dear Tom,
thanks for this review, full of nice suggestions and tips. We have a pidgeon dissuasor in the terrace, that takes many of them out of the reach of the terrace.
Thank you!

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

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.
