We spent a long weekend in Florence and Orto De Medici turned out to be a great choice. The room was small but very nice with a lovely, albeit petite, balcony and a nicely designed marble bathroom with a huge opening window that I liked. The staff was very nice, spoke excellent English and made some superb restaurant recommendations. The breakfast was very nice, although exactly the same thing daily, but good. Perhaps the best thing about the hotel is its location on a quiet side street close in San Lorenzo just off Piazza San Marco, yet 5 minutes to the busy central section, a few minutes from the Accademia, 7 minutes to the Duomo, 12 to the Uffizi, 15 minutes to Ponte Vecchio bridge and 20 minutes to the Pitti Palace in terms of walking distance.
The only reason for the lack of a fifth star was the price- the best online price with full upfront for the "superior room" was E220 (early May), that I thought was a bit steep this early in the season.
