Hotel Orto De Medici
Ranked #38 of 410 Hotels in Florence
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 2, 2013

This was our second stay in Horto de Medici Firenze : great hotel and great location not far at all from the center of Florence. Very clean, well decorated, modern and relaxing. Super nice deco, retro and stylish. Decent breakfast and friendly and helpful staff. We loved the terrace and sun loungers and we are under the spell of the bathroom: Italian shower, bathroom spacious, clean and cozy.
For this second time, we note small things to care about : the double bed is actually two joined beds, and therefore not very comfortable especially when you have to stand on one side or the other to avoid the "hole" :). A very aggressive mosquitoes "tigers" have "eaten" us literally, so need to treat the rooms.

Otherwise, I highly recommend this quiet and charming hotel.

Room Tip: rooms at the ground floor, overlooking the garden, very quiet, modern, well decorated

Dear Nanon s.
Thank you for your review. It's always a pleasure to see our clients had a good stay in our hotel.
As regards to the ''tigers'' we have a mosquito machine in all the rooms, I'm sorry if you didn't see it. Next time tell us about it, so we will make sure to show it to you.
In Italy we say: ' Non c'è due senza tre' which literally means: there's no two without a three. So we hope to see you here for the third time!
Best regards,
Lucia Goanta.

We had a wonderful experience at this hotel. The hotel is amazing with so much history. Rooms, staff and breakfast was great. I will recommend to all of my friends. We had booked a deluxe room and they upgraded us to a junior suite. The room was huge with a wonderful bathroom and view.

We stayed for two nights here during a three week stay in Italy. Overall the hotel was very well designed, with modern decor and updated features. We had a complimentary upgrade to a junior suite, and the room was beautiful and spacious. The bathroom was the size of a bedroom.
The walk to the main sights is 10 minutes. Breakfast was European style with good assortment of choices- my kids loved the toaster machine and the outdoor patio was lovely. I've stayed in many hotels in Italy over the years and this was definitely one of the best, and very well-priced for its location! I highly recommend.

We liked this hotel friendly service not too far from the river, very close to the Academia. I think with two suitcases a bit a a walk to the station but the taxi was only 7 Euro's.
Breakfast similar to most although the fresh orange juice maker was novel, one tip if you eat out on the terrace the pigeons are very bold, do not leave your breakfast unattended.
There was a nice invite to a complimentary cocktail on the terrace which was nice, but slightly disappointed that you couldn't get a coffee at 4pm as the bar was not open. Having said that we would stay again an excellent base to explore Florence.
Remember when you check out you will have to pay city tax 3 Euro per person per day.
There is a little restaurant called Florens turn right out of the hotel, not much view but good service and nice fresh food at reasonable prices
25 Euro taxi to the airport

Lovely hotel in the center of the city, near all the attractions and yet just outside the tourist area. Wunderfull terrasse and splendid personale. No noise. The furnichure was a bit old-fashioned, but no problems.

This is a fabulous hotel, from the charm of it's design to the lovely garden at the back. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting out in the mornings having our breakfast. Speaking of the breakfast.....it was excellent. The location is great as you are close to the sites and far enough away from the busy city centre to relax.
Staff were very friendly and helpful.

From the first moment this was a wonderful experience. We had a garden view from a spacious, clean, comfortable and modern room. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfasts on the terrace were very good. The hotel is well located, close to all the tourist attractions but situated in a quiet part of the city. We were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and the hotel surprised us with a free bottle of wine. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.
