The hotel is generally good:
- friendly and likeable concierge who remembered the right key without prompting
- very nice and quiet main hotel sitting room
- reasonable breakfast with nice terrace
- well located just a little off the main thoroughfares (so quiet), but really very central for all things
However I found the single room a little disappointing - there was a TV, but only a desk style chair to sit on, no comfortable chairs for relaxation. The bathroom was also not really up to scratch - a small room with a bath with a seat in it, making it impossible to fully immerse oneself. There was nowhere to hang up the shower and no shower curtain, making washing quite difficult. I suspect from the photos that the double rooms are much nicer - had I stayed in one of these I would probably have rated the hotel a notch higher, but I think the single rooms were overpriced and certainly not the sort of room one would expect from a three star hotel.
- 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
