We have just arrived from Florence, and we can say that we were lucky to stay there in Hotel Corte dei Medici, located in center of tourist zone - some 50 m from Duomo! Also it is very near (some 400m) from buss and railway station, which is very convenient if you want to travel around Tuscany or to Rome, Venice (or/and other places).
It is just opposite of Medici Chapel of Basilica San Lorenzo. It is little bit hardly to find since it is sharing entrance with Hotel Giada and although we knew that, we lost some 2-3 minutes standing in front of the hotel not being sure where exactly is the entrance and wandering are we on the right place. Plate with name of the hotel is small and just beside the door and reception is on the first floor!
This area is very lively since it is during the day full of tourist that wants to shop various kinds of leather products and souvenirs on open market with street stalls. Stalls continue towards Mercato Centrale which is just arround the corner, were you can buy and eat on the spot fantastic Italian food. In the evening this area of San Lorenzo is place where many tourists and lot of locals come in order to take tasty dinner...
Stuff is friendly and willing to help. Ciao Eva, Simona, Giuseppe and Maurizio!! Thank you on your kind hospitality and assistance!
Not impressed with entrance and lift, we were pleasantly surprised with the rest. Room was clean, very spatious, walls of the room very nicely painted, high ceiling, with 2 windows on the opposite sides of the room, very good sound-isolation of outer noise, air-condition, very specious twin bed with comfortable mattress (we slept very well), clean and functional bathroom, plasma TV, free Wi-Fi, safety-box, small refrigerator with bottle of cold sparkling wine and bottle of mineral water. These and fruit basket were courtesy of the hotel to welcome us.
Breakfest was tasty and emple (buffet), but little-bit monotinious. Since the Hotel Medici is sharing breakfest room with Hotel Giada, it is strongly recomended to book the time for next breakfest in advance, since breakfest room is rather small and all in order not to wait untill the table is free, ready and food re-fillled. But in breight mornng having the breakfest looking through the window on Medici Chapel and drinking real Italian espesso made by Maurizio or Eva you find out how the life is good to you.
We have stayed 7 days in the hotel and sure we will return back on our next visit to Florence!
