“Very recommendable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2009

My newlywed wife and I spent 5 days in Hotel Orto de Medici in mid June, and we were very pleased. Location is good, although I suspect that anything in the center of Florence is nice. It is close to everything and the street is rather quiet.

Quality of the room and the public areas was good, almost better than expected. Even in spite of the flattering reviews on the site. The breakfast-garden was beautiful the perfect way to start the day. Breakfast itself was no nonsense.

Everything was clean, staff helpful and friendly.

Only minus I can think of was that the first room we were given did not have that good sound-isolation. We were not sure we wanted to change, the room itself was outright beautiful. Finally we did approach the staff and who very smoothly gave us another room.

Price/quality overall was excellent.

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.
