I booked this hotel based on tripadvisor reviews and we weren't disappointed. Beautiful hotel in a fantastic location. Walking distance to the town center and great little cafes and shops close by. Staff was exceptionally friendly and accomodating. Very nice breakfast each morning. Would certainly stay here again and highly recommend it!

The location was perfect for our taste. Close to attractions but away from the main hustle and bustle. There were cafes and restaurants within close proximity – one café and one restaurant which became our favourite haunts during our stay. The staff were all friendly and more than helpful. There was not one member of staff that warranted any complaint.... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in late April, and really enjoyed our experience. We liked that this hotel was a couple blocks off the main tourist drag, and had more of a neighborhood feel than elsewhere.

Don't know what this hotel's like because, despite booking 7 months in advance, they didn't have a room for us when we got there. Anyone can make a mistake of course, and they arranged for us to stay in a hotel round the corner. Unfortunately, the room there was massive, but stark, dark and smelly. We'd booked a superior double... More

Hotel very pleasant, with an interior garden which is refreshing. Our room very nice overlooking the garden, very quiet. A little out of the way, near San Marco, but many buses to go all over the beautiful Firenze, never enough days to visit this wonderful city.

Staying in San Marco

Neighbourhood Profile
San Marco
The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a stone’s throw away from the Duomo of Florence, surprises everyone. A continuous flow of backpacking students provides the tranquil surroundings for the elderly residents who sit in Piazza San Marco to read the daily newspaper. Home to several universities, including the Academy of Fine Arts, San Marco is one of the most vibrant cultural centers in the city. A bridge connecting the modern cultural activity of Florence to its classic art, represented by the everlasting magnificence of the original David, resonates as a symbol of Florence and of Italy as a whole. Get lost in a Neoclassic world, a journey back in time through historic buildings like Spedale degli Innocenti (Hospital of the Innocents), San Marco church, Basilica della Santissima Annunziata, and natural jewels like the Botanical Gardens.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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
