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 were very fortunate to stay in some wonderful hotels in Italy but this was our absolute favorite. We were greeted with a very welcoming note and drinks. The room was beautiful and had an amazing view of the courtyard. It was very clean and the beds were extremely comfortable - we had a suite and the king bed felt huge! Breakfast was delicious and in an absolutely amazing room with gorgeous murals on the walls. The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful - they stored our luggage after checkout, helped us print out our COVID tests for our return flight, and called a taxi to take us to the train station. I would highly recommend Hotel Orto de Medici.

The hotel was so kind to recognize my daughter’s 22 birthday with a bottle of champagne! I happened to mention it at check in as we were looking for a good restaurant to celebrate the occasion. Imagine how fun that was for her when we came back from sightseeing! Also, wonderful breakfast, super clean, great location!!

We enjoyed our stay in this hotel, it was clean and comfortable, the staff were welcoming and helpful. It is in easy walking distance from the centre, and close to several main tourist sites. There were some excellent restaurants close to the hotel. The breakfast choice was very good, but we found the coffee awful.

The staff at the hotel was so friendly and our room was spacious and clean. Great bathroom and loved our view overlooking the courtyard and fountain. The breakfast options and staff there were also great and the hotel is in a perfect location. Walking distance to everything! The hotel itself is also fun to explore with beautiful common rooms and history.
