Travellers' Choice
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).

We chose this hotel based on the reviews from many different sites and definitely made the right decision. Hotel Orto De Medici was wonderful. It’s away from the hustle and bustle of the busy touristy piazzas yet only a few blocks from everything, which is what we prefer. The room was spacious, clean and updated. We booked the deluxe double and The bed , which was king sized in USA , was firm and very comfortable. The room was very spacious and the bathroom was good sized as well. We also opted for the breakfast included and it was delicious. Always fresh eggs and pastries and so much more. Everyone who works there was so friendly and just lovely and helpful. This was truly an exceptional place. If we ever get back to Florence, we would stay here again!

Hotel's Favourite
My husband and I stayed in a few very nice hotels during our recent tour of Italy, but this place was our favorite. Be sure to read your packet from the hotel when you arrive in your room; you'll discover you are staying in the footprint of Bertoldo's former school for young artists - attended by a teenage Michelangelo. Every aspect of our stay was delightful. The front desk staff were very kind and helpful, as were the very sweet and swift breakfast attendants and the bartender, who offered us a complimentary welcome drink on the raised porch overlooking the lovely courtyard. Our room was comfortable and quiet, despite its location on a main thoroughfare of the city that led to many famous attractions and wonderful eateries. We thought the place was just beautiful, and made many indelible memories there.

We have just finished a wonderful five night stay in Florence. We booked this hotel after reading reviews online. This hotel was perfect for us - easy walking distance to the sights, even to the Boboli Gardens, Santa Croce and Ponte Vecchio; all within a 30 minute walk away. We chose a superior room with a balcony. The top of the Duomo and Giotto's Bell Tower were over the rooftops, outside. You can hear the church bells each morning. The room was spacious with a generously sized, walk-in shower. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty. We noted, before booking, that the staff are a wonderful asset to this hotel and we totally agree. Alazne, on the reception desk, helped us choose and book a trip to the Tuscan countryside. What a lovely young lady- very cheerful and so welcoming. She also organised breakfast bags for us on the morning during which we needed an early start for an excursion. The other reception staff were friendly and made us feel so welcome, too. They always greeted us when we returned to the hotel. Ironing equipment is readily available to use in a private space near the lobby. The breakfast staff, Estelyn, Divina and Corrado were cheerful, helpful and worked so hard to make sure everyone had their morning drinks and that things were kept really tidy at all times. Eugenia kept our room spotlessly clean - thank you to you all. We are already planning to return and would definitely choose this hotel again. Thank you for a wonderful stay in Florence.

Beautiful modern hotel, staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast was limited but nice. The hotel is clean and in a great location. Little cafes, restaurants, and shops on your doorstep and a few mins walk to the Duomo. Would definitely stay again.

The quality of the rooms was excellent and the staff were friendly and welcoming. We had a balcony room with a beautiful outlook. Our only very minor issue was a shortage of bedside charging points for today's multi-device traveller. A perfect base for exploring the beautiful city of Florence.

The staff at the front desk are the pinnacle of hospitality the hotel was immaculate well staffed and beautiful. The only major disappointment was no food,lounge , room service or bar. We were a family on vacation and there is no where to relax at the hotel other than our room. Should tell parties when booking nothing open before may.

This hotel is stunning, and the rooms are incredibly spacious. We booked a Junior Suite with a garden view for our family of four, and it was by far the best family room we've ever experienced. The kids each had their own comfortable twin bed, and the room featured an expansive closet area, allowing us to comfortably unpack and store our belongings, keeping everything organized and easily accessible. The staff was exceptionally warm and provided us with valuable suggestions for our first day in the city. The complimentary breakfast was both delightful and delicious. We will definitely choose to stay here again on our next trip to Florence.
