A great place, nice rooms, nice people in the most beautifull street in central florence, but impossible to get some sleep due to the streetnoise....the price is good and many restaurants and cozy square at walking distance.

Stayed here one night after attending a Pat Metheny concert up in Fiesol. The room was big, facing the backyard garden with 2 single beds and a double bed. Hotel is on a narrow street downtown. Really enjoyed our stay and will consider this place when i go to Florence next time.

As its name suggests, that is how we feel about the Locanda Orchidea. This is our second time through Firenze, and if there is a third, we will be back. A perfect location...a majestic old building...a wonderful owner (Miranda) and her staff...an excellent price, making it a top-notch value....a fantastic bedroom, with a huge amount of room and storage space...and...

What a lovely, peaceful and friendly place. Miranda and her colleagues looked after us very well. The Orchidea is right in the heart of Florence and no distance from all the major places for visitors. We stayed in the back of the hotel and we could have been in the countryside for the lack of noise. (The front is noisier!)... More

I'll start by saying this is where I will stay in Florence when traveling alone. It's clean, it's centrally and conveniently located, it's off the beaten path just enough to be quiet but safe, and the staff is accommodating, attentive, and friendly. You can't beat it for the price. One thing to mention- it was a bit chilly in my... More

Located at the central area of the city. One of the prettiest room I have ever stayed at. Everything was very clean including the shared bathroom. Free tea and coffee whenever I want. The only problem was the noise of drunkards from the street at night. (So they provide ear plugs)

Hotel's location is its strongest point. It's only a few minutes' walk from Duomo and other historical sites and museums - the thing I apreciated the most. The room was quite comfortable and well designed what added a lot to the exceptional atmosphere of the city.The hosts were very helpful and the most welcoming.The unique drawback in my case was...

Miranda, the owner was so helpful. She keeps a really clean hotel. The price is very affordable also. There is an Irish pub right across the street from the hotel that is a lot of fun. You are less than 5 minutes walking distance to almost everything in Florence. I had a wonderful time staying there. Can't wait to go... More
