This is a very tasteful and stylish hotel with comfortable rooms and first class service. The concierge service is impeccable and even though I only had 2 days left on a trip to Italy, they were able to help getting my lost property to Rome. Apart from also helping with so many little details, they also have a courtesy car... More

Villa Medici is a luxurious boutique Sina Hotel in the heart of Florence. The accommodations are fabulous, top drawer staff and lovely surroundings. Our 3-night stay is indeed a high point in our tour of the City and surrounding area. I would gladly return here on a future trip to Italy. Love Florence and love Villa Medici.

This hotel is well placed for walking to all the key attractions in central Florence. The room was spacious and we had a huge terrace to enjoy. The staff were attentive and available for all our requests. Only disappointment was that despite it being the start of April and good weather the pool was shut

An ideal place for honeymoon, everything was perfect. Perfect room, perfect breakfast, beautiful architecture, the staff was friendly. Recommend the hotel for those who love old architecture with delicate elements of modernism.

My mom and I stayed in this hotel during our short trip to Florence. When we arrived to our room we were quite disappointed. The AC did not work and when we called to reception and after a brief explanation the man said "I gave you two choices and haven't heard your answer". We had a view of the outside... More

It was a good choice for us. While a tad expensive its a different experience altogether. From the concierge standing out in cold rushing to take your bag to welcome you, to helpful staff and great rooms, everything is good about this hotel. Close to station, they make efforts to welcome you and make you feel at home. Local eateries... More

This hotel offers a wonderful experience. The service is impeccable- every need taken care of with a smile. The start of each day was delightful- the breakfast was superior. From the driver that was available, to the recommendations given- everything was top-notch. If you can, you must stay here and be pampered- you will definitely be glad you did.

While the location, in the old city is really lovely, this hotel is tired and a bit dreary. We had serious issues with the plumbing and the lights in our room and the manager was so nice he gave us money off at the end of our stay. The courtyard is also quite beautiful but the brunch is tremendously overpriced... More
