“An excellent choice!!”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

The room was nice and clean, the location was a short walk to the Duomo and the city center and the breakfast was Fantastic (think fresh squeezed orange juice and all the cappuccinos you can drink!). I would Highly recommend Hotel Orto De Medici.

On our first full day there they had a complimentary drink in the patio. I met other travelers and got some great pointers about traveling in Italy.

Staff was friendly and helpful. Wifi worked great and there are to Apple computers in the lobby, one with a printer.

We absolutely LOVED this beautiful hotel! The location is terrific, the Duomo was a 10 minute ish stroll away, and the Ponte Vecchio was only about 20 mins, in our guidebook, the map made it look like we were far away, we were surprised to discover that everywhere in Florence is within walking distance, which was brilliant.
The first room that we had, there was a fault with the lock on the balcony doors, and when we mentioned it to the lovely (it has to be said, very handsome, George Clooneyesque) receptionist, he got someone to see if it could be repaired the next day. When it couldn't be fixed, he offered us a change of rooms. Which was very kind and unexpected.
The next room we had for 4 nights, and it was wonderful. Large bed, which was comfortable. A dressing area, and a lovely marble bathroom.Our room looked out on to the courtyard, and there is a cute little fountain there too. Truly, we didn't want to leave!
The breakfast on the terrace was gorgeous, typical Italian breakfast, consisting of Orange juice, coffees, rolls, hams, croissants, eggs, cakes, fruit salad and yogurts, etc.Very nice, and the staff were lovely in there too.
All of the staff were very helpful, kind and friendly. We loved our stay at the Orto di Medici, and would stay again in a heartbeat!

Room Tip: I would recommend a courtyard facing room, as it was so quiet and peaceful. We both slept really wel...

This hotel is very well situated for the city sights without being in the middle of the hustle and bustle. It is a three star hotel and that is what you get. It is a lovely building with high ceilings decorated in the Italian style. We had a quad room with a courtyard view which was spacious and clean with a beautiful view. Breakfast is continental and eat all you want buffet style. If you want four star then pay for it! This is a lovely hotel and we would come back again. Despite other reviews the staff are all very helpful and multilingual.

De orto de Medici is a gem. Very central for all the sites. A hotel that has kept it's historic charm after a modern makeover. Attentive staff, great breakfast and lovely terrace to enjoy a glass of proseco.

Special birthday treat - trip to Florence with the family. Booked into the junior suite and i can easily say, the hotel and staff were wonderful. A beautiful view from the window to the courtyard, marble bathroom, a separate dressing room and tester sized bed. Must comment on the patience of the breakfast staff, seeing them dealing with all nationalities. loved it - want to go back.

The rooms are very large, clean and the rainfall shower was great. We overlooked the garden at the back of the hotel which was very quiet. The hotel is within walking distance of everything.

There was no iron available, which for the cost, I would have expected. The breakfast was good and the buffet plentiful, however, sitting outside on the terrace was almost impossible due to the pigeons. They are fearless and would land on the tables while you were eating!

This is a three star hotel, charging four star prices, which is why I would rate it as a three instead of a four.

Dear Peter,
Thanks for your review. I appreciate ho you enjoeyed the room size and cleanliness, and the location of the hotel. I am quite surpirsed to read you could not find an iron, since we have a fully equippeed ironing room next to the lobby. Are you sure you asked to the staff about your need? Please do not hesitate when you need something. I am sorry if some pidgeons were unpleasant to you. People should never feed them, or they become more demanding. Anyway, we recently intsalled an electric dissuasor, which hopefully will take them away from the terrace.
For the price there are many ways to save money, including during the high season and for the nicest rooms: organizing your trip in adavance to get the first discounts, selecting the dates preferring off-seasons and out of weekends, taking adavance of ome of the many special offers available on our w3bsite.
I hope with these simple tricks you will be able to visit us again at your nex stop in Florence.
Thank you!

Stayed here in August was a great location to get around Florence and our room was lovely and spacious and we had a great balcony with mixes views. Although the rooms were kept clean the beds weren't that comfortable (we booked a double and had two single beds pushed together, which kept coming away from one another) there was one older man who worked on reception who was quite helpful and friendly other than him the rest were quite rude

Dear Katiechat,
Thanks for your appreciations to the room, the balcony and the staff. I am sorry if you were not satisfied in something. I suppose the housekeeper made a mistake in securing the connection between the two mattresses, so if we knew in adavance qwe could fix it.
Thank you
