Reviewed August 26, 2014

I stayed at this very nice hotel for 4 nights in Aug.2014. I could enjoy my stay well in the hotel. The room was clean and spacious. All staff members were very kindly, friendly, and well-trained. Breakfast was very delicious. The view from the terrace was splendid. I have stayed at many hotels in Europe before, and considering hotel prices, Hotel Orto De Medici is one of my best favorite hotels. The hotel has been built on the site of the academy school founded by Lorenzo il Magnifico. Young Michelangelo studied just there !! If you are interested in art and history, I’d like to recommend you this magnificent hotel. Ishii.

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights during our stay in Florence and we absolutely loved it! We obtained a free upgrade to a beautiful spacious room, newly renovated with a very big bathroom and shower. Our room opened up to a balcony on the garden terrasse where we enjoyed having a drink and relaxing. The staff was very friendly and helpful in helping us find various locations. The hotel is ideally located just a 5 minute walk from the main piazza where the Duomo is located and lots of shops and restaurants near by. The free breakfast was delicious with freshly squeezed orange juice. We definetely recommend this hotel for your next stay!

We had the perfect stay in this charming hotel. Location is excellent and beds comfortable. Additionally the hotel staff went above the beyond to make our trip to Florence most memorable. Before our arrival, I have communicated to Francesco about our early morning tour and was concerned about missing the breakfast ( it starts at 7:30am). Francesco offered to pack our breakfast ( 8 of us) and give them to us the night before so we would have something to eat on the tour bus. They are not fancy, but each one of us get a bottle water, a fruit, some cookies and crackers. We appreciated the gesture above all. Additionally Francesco also helped us reserve tickets for the Uffizi gallery just a week before our arrival. This helped a great deal, as we saw very long lines before the gallery when we went to visit and we're so glad we had a reservation. Overall our experience with this hotel is excellent and will love to go back soon!

The room was nice and clean, the location was a short walk to the Duomo and the city center and the breakfast was Fantastic (think fresh squeezed orange juice and all the cappuccinos you can drink!). I would Highly recommend Hotel Orto De Medici.

On our first full day there they had a complimentary drink in the patio. I met other travelers and got some great pointers about traveling in Italy.

Staff was friendly and helpful. Wifi worked great and there are to Apple computers in the lobby, one with a printer.

We absolutely LOVED this beautiful hotel! The location is terrific, the Duomo was a 10 minute ish stroll away, and the Ponte Vecchio was only about 20 mins, in our guidebook, the map made it look like we were far away, we were surprised to discover that everywhere in Florence is within walking distance, which was brilliant.
The first room that we had, there was a fault with the lock on the balcony doors, and when we mentioned it to the lovely (it has to be said, very handsome, George Clooneyesque) receptionist, he got someone to see if it could be repaired the next day. When it couldn't be fixed, he offered us a change of rooms. Which was very kind and unexpected.
The next room we had for 4 nights, and it was wonderful. Large bed, which was comfortable. A dressing area, and a lovely marble bathroom.Our room looked out on to the courtyard, and there is a cute little fountain there too. Truly, we didn't want to leave!
The breakfast on the terrace was gorgeous, typical Italian breakfast, consisting of Orange juice, coffees, rolls, hams, croissants, eggs, cakes, fruit salad and yogurts, etc.Very nice, and the staff were lovely in there too.
All of the staff were very helpful, kind and friendly. We loved our stay at the Orto di Medici, and would stay again in a heartbeat!

Room Tip: I would recommend a courtyard facing room, as it was so quiet and peaceful. We both slept really wel...

This hotel is very well situated for the city sights without being in the middle of the hustle and bustle. It is a three star hotel and that is what you get. It is a lovely building with high ceilings decorated in the Italian style. We had a quad room with a courtyard view which was spacious and clean with a beautiful view. Breakfast is continental and eat all you want buffet style. If you want four star then pay for it! This is a lovely hotel and we would come back again. Despite other reviews the staff are all very helpful and multilingual.

De orto de Medici is a gem. Very central for all the sites. A hotel that has kept it's historic charm after a modern makeover. Attentive staff, great breakfast and lovely terrace to enjoy a glass of proseco.
