We took the quad on the 4th floor (they have an elevator), huge room, private all new marble bathroom. Woodend floors, comfy beds, cleaner than clean. Room with view of the hotels courtyard, this also serves as the out door breakfast area. The courtyard where Michaelangelo learned to sculpt! See book on history of this hotel on you night stand. A/C worked very well. Windows open to clean air (no diesel fumes in Florence). Two big public living room areas with big tv's. Breakfast offers large selection, served in elegantly decorated dining room or in the courtyard. Close walk to all sights, close yet far enough from the train station. Taxi stand around the corner at San Marcos. Go to San Marco's museum see the monk cells, and Fra Angelico frescos. Also, see free concert on Monday evenings. You are in a Florentine neighborhood, not a tourist trap take advantage of it. Go to the bar 3 doors down (yellow chairs) 8 E for drink and best authentic buffet you will find. Have a Spritz - great drink.

The best hotel on our entire trip to Italy. The room and bathrooms were spacious for 2 adults and 2 children. The hotel lobby is beautiful and all parts of the hotel have an opulent look and feel. This is a great hotel and much better then many 4-5 star hotels. I highly recommend Orto De Medici.

My husband and I spent 6 nights at Orto de Medici and were very pleased with our stay. At first glance our double room seemed a bit small, but we were in the room only to sleep so at the end it proved to fit our needs perfectly. Our room was kept very clean and we always had a replenishment of towels and toiletries when we got back to our room after a long day of touring. I cannot say enough about the friendly staff – we felt right at home from the moment we stepped foot into the hotel. The breakfast room is beautiful and we took advantage of the free breakfast about 3 times during our stay. Offerings included croissants, small rolls, salami, orange juice, coffee, cereals, etc. The hotel is about a 5 minute walk from the Accademia and a 10 minute walk to the Duomo. We loved the location because we were close to the main attractions, but also away from the noise that is common when staying in the center of town. Florence is truly an amazing city and we hope to return there soon and if we’re lucky enough to go back we will certainly stay at Orto de Medici.

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
