“Great, but doors not soundproof!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

This is a beautiful hotel, conveniently located in a quiet yet central part of town, but I was given a room in a corner, and when the guests next door trawled their trolleys in at midnight, then started unpacking and chatting away merrily till about one, I felt I really had to let them know I found their conversation rather uninteresting...!
The room itself, however, was nice and clean. As for the bathroom, I would have preferred a proper shower, instead of a square tub with no curtain around it, but that's just a detail.
Great breakfast, with real orange squash!

This hotel was the best we stayed at while in Italy. It is situated very close to the Duomo, the major museums, the food market and many wonderful restaurants. The room was very well maintained, spotless and quiet, and the bathroom was beautiful. Service was very good, and the hotel helped with dinner reservations. We certainly plan to return to this hotel when we travel back to Florence.

I stayed at Hotel Orto De Medici for 5 days. The room I stayed in was a very large, lovely european style room for a single traveler, reasonably priced for Florence. The rooms are very clean and the hotel is very modern, convenient and in San Marcos within walking distance to the central area. I felt very safe as a female solo traveler walking to and from my hotel at night after having dinner. The other things I enjoyed about the hotel were the free wi-fi, the Mac computers in the lobby for guest to use. There is even a nice library/lounge on the first floor with a large screen t.v. and magazines/books for guest to utilize. The breakfast lounge is good. The staff were all attentive, friendly and professional. There is even a lounge for outside but unfortunately due to the rain I was unable to sit outside. I highly recommend Hotel Orto De Medici to others and you will not be disappointed. Thanks again to the hotel employees of Orto De Medici for your excellent customer service.

We recently stayed at this hotel for 6 nights. All aspects of the hotel and the services are of a very good quality and excellent value. The staff were WONDERFUL! They provided us with excellent recommendations on restaurants; made phone calls to ensure that we were able to confirm our 2 tours; and exceeeded our expectations. Thank you Ricardo and all of the other staff for making this a spectacular trip! We will return!

Room Tip: We booked our rooms through Venere.com and I do not recall if we had the opportunity to select rooms...

My wife and I enjoyed staying at this hotel for six days recently. We agree that the next time we come to Florence, we are coming right back to this hotel. The location is quiet, but within a reasonably short walk to the city center. The staff are friendly and very helpful. We found all aspects of the hotel and its services to be of high quality and an excellent value. The hotel and its rooms/furnishings are clearly particular to Florence, which enhanced our experience.

My fiancee and I visited Florence in January of 2013 for a two-night break. This hotel provided an excellent base for exploring the city, being a short walk away from the majority of the sights. We encountered three or four of the staff at the hotel and all were extremely friendly, spoke excellent English and were happy to help us out (looking after bags post check-out etc).

The rooms are a little old-fashioned, but this lends itself to the vibe of the city itself. The garden/patio looked attractive, however since the rain was torrential for our entire stay we did not get to try them out! A mini-bar and TV are supplied.

Overall, a fantastic hotel for the price. I would recommend it throughly.
