This is a nice urban bed and breakfast. I wished I had taken the time to read the wall plaques about some of the common rooms when I first came; to appreciate the very interesting history of the setting. We stayed 3 days and liked the place better every day. We were in a large newly renovated modern room, simply... More

Very nice hotel, especially for the value. The room was much bigger than I expected. I asked for a high floor with a view and we got that. We had the best room we ever had at a hotel in Europe. The room was clean and had a nice, large balcony with a nice view of the yard. The front... More

Orto De Medici is a very comfortable hotel in the heart of the historic old town of Florence. It's very conveniently located next to Piazza San Marco and therefore 5-10 mins on foot from all the sights & sounds. The hotel is very old school and has limited facilities other than the comfort of the room (no iron in room,... More

We very much enjoyed this hotel. It is beautiful, in a good location and the staff was very nice. The breakfast buffet was incredible with fresh squeezed orange juice. Our room was spacious and modern.

We loved being within easy walking distance of all major historical attractions. The room was comfortable and we loved sitting out on our private balcony in the evenings. Breakfast buffet is complimentary and there is a beautiful outdoor terrace to enjoy breakfast.

Unless you are used to Italian service then you could find any hotel in Florence or Rome a bit impersonal. It seems they won't offer any more 'help' than is specifically asked for. Having said that the staff at this hotel do everything for you that you do ask for. The 6pm to 8pm drinks on the terrace are lovely... More

We returned here after a previous trip 9 or 10 years ago. The facility is nice and the people are great, very accommodating. A couple of things could be improved imho but the first one pretty much refers to Florence s a whole. Their continental breakfast is pretty god fare, with hard-boiled eggs, great bread, fresh OJ, yogurt and more... More

My husband and I had a wonderful time during our recent trip to Florence and a large part of this enjoyment can be attributed to the Hotel Orto De Medici. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. It was my birthday while there and I received a very pleasant greeting letter as well as the front desk remembered and wished... More

Staying in San Marco

Neighborhood 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
