Hotel Orto De Medici
Ranked #42 of 411 Hotels in Florence
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 1, 2014 via mobile

We loved our rooms. Location near the Market and Academy was a bit quieter than ground zero of the Pont V or Duomo but still convenient.

Breakfast was very good.

WiFi was a little spotty but we found easy places to use it.

Staff was great and helpful and patient.

Do not hesitate to register. IMO a four star experience, hands down.

Stayed: December 2013, traveled with family

My family (4 of us) stayed at the hotel Orto de Medici during the week prior to Christmas. Highly recommend this time of year (minimal lines, good value, beautiful, etc). The room was better than the pictures (we stayed in a quad). We were on a top floor and there was a nice albeit indirect view of towers, etc out the window and overlooked the garden courtyard. The room was well heated, quiet and clean. We had internet access that worked well. Ask for adapters at the front desk (we had 4 people's devices...). We had sparkling wine waiting for us in our room and a small fridge. Our room had high ceilings. The beds were ok, the pillows were fine.

There was a nice room to go to on the 2nd floor for reading. The breakfasts were perfect for our family -- simple crescents, muffins, granola, yogurt, great cappacinos, fresh squeezed OJ and pretty good fruit. There were hot things too, but we didn't go that route. The breakfast room had high ceilings and a nice view of the garden. I could imagine how nice this must be in warmer weather. The breakfast saved us a lot of money and was really good.

The staff was friendly and helpful. We arrived earlier than our check in and they stored our luggage, had a map and directed us to where we wanted to go. We stayed for 3 days, then left for Rome to return several days later -- we were able to store some luggage at the hotel. It was waiting for us in our room when we came back. The front desk staff remembered us. It was nice.

I would definitely stay in this hotel again. The only reason I gave it a 4 (instead of a 5) is that the restaurants we wanted to go to were on the other side of the river. This hotel is north of the Duomo and everything is a little bit of a walk. This was not an issue for us, and not really an issue with the hotel. They were great. We enjoyed staying at this hotel over the others on our trip.

Recommended.

Our hotel was located in a great area which was close to restaurants, the street markets, the sites. The staff was very helpful and willing to go beyond their "job descriptions". The reception staff recognized us each time we entered and even held our packages for us while we continued our trips. The room was quiet, the beds were comfortable, the buffet breakfast was filling. Great hotel and we would stay there again if we travel to Florence. We loved Florence. Enjoy yourselves.

We arrived by rail from Venice, and an easy 10 minute walk with our luggage saw us at our hotel, so it's easily located and accessible. The convenient location extends to local tourist sights, and the hotel reception staff are great at giving local advice, maps and information.

The room was very well appointed, with a super sized bed, and kept clean and tidy throughout our stay. Free buffet breakfast (wide variety of choice available), free WIFI at a good speed, make this a boutique hotel worth staying at.

my 4 nights at the Orto del Medici were enjoyable . The reception was helpful. The room is comfortable and quiet . The buffet breakfast was more than I needed . The fresh orange juice was excellent helping me to have a happy morning before going to the meeting . The hotel is situated very near the Duomo and not far from Ponte Vecchio. The WI FI was connected directly in my room and I really appreciated it because I worked late in the night . In a word, I recommend this hotel to all my friends who want to visit FLORENCE . I will surely come back for my next trip to Florence .

It was a very nice place for the price! The beds were pretty comfy, room was adorable (very old, with big window, bathroom was updated and top-notch), pretty wide selection for breakfast, nice, helpful staff, pretty good location, good wifi. Overall…I'd say, book it! :)

This is a boutique hotel, & very special in every way. The room is simply perfect, large by any standards, huge by Italy standards. The bathroom has everything you could think of & more. A heated floor, a heated towel rack, & a large tub. The breakfast bar is amazing, fresh squeezed OJ, just to start. We are already looking forward to returning here. The staff is gracious, & helpful. Everyone is proud to work here & their smiles show it.

Room Tip: Get a garden suite!
