We stayed at this hotel for 6 nights. The location is great; 5 min walk to the Duomo, tucked away from the noisier streets. Great to use as a home base, while walking around the city.
The rooms are spacious, quiet and meticulously clean. They offer complimentary breaksfasts between 7-9am, and you should make a point out of taking advantage of it. (fresh squeeze OJ, pastries, toast, cheese, slice meats, all coffee/exresso options, yogurts, jams, fruits... one morning, they even had champagne.) Free WiFi in room, room safe, bathroom with bathtub and shower.
The entire hotel is spotless, the housekeeping staff is amazing, quiet,(we were never woken up) and obviously take pride in their jobs.
The only reason I don't give this hotel 5 stars, is the staff at the front desk. They are fluent in many languages, polite, and attentive.... just not all that helpful. It made us think that perhaps the owner had just hired them?
Overall, it's a good place to stay, good location, but if you're a hesitant traveller, don't depend on the efficiency of the front staff.
- 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
