“Great stay in Florence at Hotel Orchidea”
Reviewed May 25, 2014

What a lovely, peaceful and friendly place. Miranda and her colleagues looked after us very well. The Orchidea is right in the heart of Florence and no distance from all the major places for visitors.
We stayed in the back of the hotel and we could have been in the countryside for the lack of noise. (The front is noisier!) We will definitely stay there again next time we visit.

Room Tip: Book early! Ask for a room at the back.

I'll start by saying this is where I will stay in Florence when traveling alone. It's clean, it's centrally and conveniently located, it's off the beaten path just enough to be quiet but safe, and the staff is accommodating, attentive, and friendly. You can't beat it for the price.

One thing to mention- it was a bit chilly in my room (I stayed in late November). To be fair, I didn't bring it up with the staff, and based on their service with other things (I borrowed a blow dryer, needed to purchase shampoo nearby, etc.), I'm sure they would've provided another blanket or heating solution.

we got to locanda orchidea because we were in a hurry, and had to find a hotel quickly.
overall, the staff was very nice and helpful! room was very clean and beautifully decorated. the bed was ok for one night, but i wouldnt buy one like this to my home...
there was alot of noise from the street at night - the windows didnt seem to be helpful in blocking noises.
breakfast coupon for the near bar is good value for money!
if we had more time to choose - i would choose a different hotel, with private bathrooms.

Located at the central area of the city. One of the prettiest room I have ever stayed at. Everything was very clean including the shared bathroom. Free tea and coffee whenever I want. The only problem was the noise of drunkards from the street at night. (So they provide ear plugs)

Hotel's location is its strongest point. It's only a few minutes' walk from Duomo and other historical sites and museums - the thing I apreciated the most. The room was quite comfortable and well designed what added a lot to the exceptional atmosphere of the city.The hosts were very helpful and the most welcoming.The unique drawback in my case was the noise coming from the nearby street that did not finish until 3-4 a.m. Notwithstanding I am left with really fabulous memories of my stay at the hotel.

Room Tip: "A street room would not be recomened"

This hotel may not have many stars but it won our hearts and help make our visit to Florence very special. It 7 rooms occupies the second floor of a 12th century building previously occupied by Dante's wife and it's location on a narrow street full of interesting shops close to the Duomo is hard to beat. It is also next door to a great sandwich place and 2 doors down from La Loggia Degli Albizi, a brilliant cafe where we breakfasted every morning. The comfort, cleanliness and friendly service more than makes up for the lack of ensuite facilities. The shared bathrooms were spotless and the showers were great. Not for those who crave luxury but definitely for those travellers on a budget with a sense of history.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the hotel are quieter.

Miranda, the owner was so helpful. She keeps a really clean hotel. The price is very affordable also. There is an Irish pub right across the street from the hotel that is a lot of fun. You are less than 5 minutes walking distance to almost everything in Florence. I had a wonderful time staying there. Can't wait to go back and I will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are very nice. Just depends on how many people in the group.
