I loved this hotel and not only because they upgraded us to a Junior Suite from a Garden Room for our 25th anniversary.
The terrace where we had breakfast and where we enjoyed an evening beer was beautiful. There were jasmine vines growing everywhere and the smell was wonderful. The breakfast was typical and good and the cappuccino was great. They have a happy hour from 6 to 8 PM and a voucher for a free drink. Use it and sit on the lounge chairs and enjoy the roses and jasmine.
Our room was excellent. We were located just before the doors to the garden and we had a sitting area with a window that opened up to the garden. There does not seem to be an issue regarding bugs in Italy and windows can be left open for fresh air and to enjoy the jasmine fragrance.
We had a king size bed that was very comfortable. We had a walk-in closet and a huge bathroom. The bathroom was beautifully tilled with a shower, a toilet room, two sinks and a long soaker tub which I used every night as my feet were extremely sore.
We arrived mid morning from our overnight flight from Montreal, Canada and only had to wait a short time for our room to be available for us. This was wonderful and we are very grateful because we slept for a few hours and were able to do some site seeing on our very first day in Florence, Italy. Granted, we were asleep by 8:30 PM that night and slept soundly until 7:30 AM the next morning. But then we were over any jet lag.
The hotel is located close to Piazza San Marco where all the buses meet up for transfers. So if you have a Florence Card, you can walk to San Marco square and catch the correct bus.
Before we traveled to Italy, the Hotel Orto De Medici staff were very helpful via email. I was trying to figure out if we should purchase the Florence Card and they helped and were able to order cards to have waiting at the hotel for us.
