“A Step Back in Time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2012

We had booked a classic room but were surprised to see that they had given us a quad room. It was more space than we needed but we were happy nonetheless. The decor and furnishings added to the Florentine ambiance. The rooms were clean and comfortable as well as the bathroom. The location is very close to many of the sights. The Accademia Gallery is only a five minutes walk from the hotel. There are restaurants, shops, and food markets nearby. Having free WiFi was very convenient and the signal was strong considering our room was at the far end of the hall. The only minor thing I would change is to remove the half-bath tub/shower and just install a regular full standing shower. The height of the tub made it difficult to step in and out. Overall, it's a great place to stay and would highly recommend it.

We enjoyed our stay at the hotel, we had stayed before so were excited to be returning. The hotel has been extensively renovated. The rooms were very clean, unfortunately we had an internal room which was bit dark and also noisy as it was right outside the lift. However the location of the hotel is superb and we would return and specify a different room.

Had a very nice time at this hotel. Extremely clean and newly remodeled. There is an afternoon welcome cocktail hour that is very nice. Breakfast is in a beautiful setting. I really have nothing bad to say about this hotel! Very close to a taxi stand if you need one. I would take a taxi to the hotel from the train station as it is a quite a walk with a bunch of luggage.

Very happy with this choice.

Room Tip: We stayed in a deluxe garden room...absolutely beautiful and very large.

I have just returned from a trip that started in Paris and ended in Rome. Of all the places I stayed, Hotel Orto de Medici was my favourite. The hotel is about a 5 minute walk from the central part of Florence but it's a nice walk. We stayed in a large beautiful room with a bath/shower and it was very quiet. The breakfasts were great. There are 2 large sitting rooms on the main floor and a beautifull terrace where they have wine and snacks in the late afternoon. There are lots of newspapers and magazines to read. Nice touch. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel is very elegant and I would recommend it to anyone.

This June I traveled with my family ( husband, sisters, son, nephew, and 2 nieces ) to Italy. While in Florence we stayed at the Hotel Orto de Medici. It was a lovely, charming hotel with friendly staff, and a nice, quiet location. The staff at the desk spoke English, and were very helpful. The room was nice, the beds comfortable, and the air conditioning worked. We had a wonderful stay, it was just perfect. The place has so much character. Breakfast was good too. I would recommend this hotel to anyone going to Florence.

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
