We found this hotel in the Karen Brown guide and then proceeded to check reviews on Tripadvisor. We chose this hotel on the basis of the reviews, and because my husband band I were travelling with our daughter, we reserved the junior suite at what turned out to be a lovely hotel--a nineteenth century building that has been beautifully renovated. This is definitely a 4-star hotel, but because it does not have a restaurant, it is rated as a 3-star. I really don't know where to begin--our stay was very comfortable. The setting of the breakfast room and terrace provided a lovely space to begin our day. The buffet was tastefully presented in a buffet style. There was a choice of breads, sweet rolls, juices, capuccino, tea, a marvelous choice of fruits and yoghurt, ham, cheese etc. Our room was modern and had every ammenity we might have needed. The bed was comfortable and my daughter said the sofa bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was huge, with a separate shower space, a jacuzzi tub--plenty of hot water. I highly recommend the junior suite. It was pleasant to have so much space during our stay. In the evenings we enjoyed wine and hors d'oeuvres on the roof-top terrace. There were areas with lounge chairs and umbrellas for reading after a day of sight-seeing. The location of the hotel is close to the train station as others have mentioned, and close to major sights. We had a lovely stay at the Orto De Medici and would definitely stay at this hotel again. I would like to commend the members of an excellent staff. You made our stay in Florence even more memorable.
