“EXCELLENT HOTEL WITH WARM RECEPTION”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

my 4 nights at the Orto del Medici were enjoyable . The reception was helpful. The room is comfortable and quiet . The buffet breakfast was more than I needed . The fresh orange juice was excellent helping me to have a happy morning before going to the meeting . The hotel is situated very near the Duomo and not far from Ponte Vecchio. The WI FI was connected directly in my room and I really appreciated it because I worked late in the night . In a word, I recommend this hotel to all my friends who want to visit FLORENCE . I will surely come back for my next trip to Florence .

It was a very nice place for the price! The beds were pretty comfy, room was adorable (very old, with big window, bathroom was updated and top-notch), pretty wide selection for breakfast, nice, helpful staff, pretty good location, good wifi. Overall…I'd say, book it! :)

This is a boutique hotel, & very special in every way. The room is simply perfect, large by any standards, huge by Italy standards. The bathroom has everything you could think of & more. A heated floor, a heated towel rack, & a large tub. The breakfast bar is amazing, fresh squeezed OJ, just to start. We are already looking forward to returning here. The staff is gracious, & helpful. Everyone is proud to work here & their smiles show it.

Room Tip: Get a garden suite!

Our four night stay at the Orto de Medici was excellent. We enjoyed the view of the gardens at our deluxe room. It was nicely furnished with modern decor, with adequate space for all our luggage. Coming back to a quiet room after a busy day of walking to all the sites, was simply perfect. Very nice staff and loved the breakfast also. I would highly recommend this hotel and we will definitely come back!

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms in the garden area are very quiet

This hotel housed classic & modern room ( deluxe). If you prefer the old wooden feel, the classic room is perfectly suit you but it was slightly uncomfortable for us. We prefer the modern room so we upgraded our room to deluxe garden room. It is modern and spacious. It is also quite and clean. This hotel offered more than 3 star service and have a mixed of classic and modern interior. The wi-fi speed is fast.

Room Tip: Choose a deluxe room facing the garden.

Foggy December mornings became charged with anticipation as we stepped out on the balcony for a stunning view on the cupola of the Duomo, our bodies energized with delicious and healthy breakfasts, our feet racing out to get us lost in the streets of Florence. We had a fantastic weekend thanks to the very accomodating and supportive staff, and our stay at Orto de Medici was worthwhile in every way. We'll be coming back for sure, thank you so much!

Room Tip: Every level is filled with unique artworks from local artists. Spend a while and browse the colourfu...

Our stay in early December 2013 was a treat:
Pros:
+ Money's worth --> €370 for 5 nights including breakfast
+ Friendly staff --> Helpful for restaurant bookings, extras in the room
+ Huge Room --> approx 60sqm, vast bathroom
+ Good breakfast
+ Central Location --> 10 min to Duomo, 5 mins to Statue of David
+ Historical background --> Souvenir booklet in room

Cons:
- Ants in room --> Might bother some travellers, didn't bother us
- No extra thrills such as Fitness or pool.

Fantastic hotel, would go back without hesitation

Room Tip: "Ask for a room in the courtyard"

Dear KonanXXL,
Nice to read your scheme. If you have a garden you know how easy if to get in contact with ants when a room overlooks a garden. But if you tell our house keepers they can solve the problem in one minute.
Thank you
