“Value for money”
Reviewed October 19, 2011

Excellent location. You step outside the hotel and you're already inside the historical area of Florence and all the sites you intend to visit. The room was small and a bit dark, but clean, functional and comfortable. Breakfast was mostly continental with some additions. Fine, not more than that. Some of the staff were friendly and some less. There is a safe in the room. Over all the value for money was good.

As others state, the location is fantastic - walking distance to everything. We had a room at the back, so no issues with the street market. Room was fine & comfortable, but no soap or shampoos provided at all (what is it lately with no soap in hotels?). No "glass" glasses despite there being a fridge, just plastic cups and glasses provided somewhat reluctantly when requested. Agree with others re the breakfast room guy. We had read about him previously so were expecting it, but honestly what's his story? He's such a diva, it's laughable. It's not like he doesn't know people are going to turn up at breakfast time & want somewhere to sit and something to eat (you even have to tell them what time you're coming).

Free internet acces is available in a conference room, but don't know about Wi-fi.

Room Tip: The market in the front of the hotel operates from 8am to 8pm and they will be setting up for at lea...

We have just arrived from Florence, and we can say that we were lucky to stay there in Hotel Corte dei Medici, located in center of tourist zone - some 50 m from Duomo! Also it is very near (some 400m) from buss and railway station, which is very convenient if you want to travel around Tuscany or to Rome, Venice (or/and other places).
It is just opposite of Medici Chapel of Basilica San Lorenzo. It is little bit hardly to find since it is sharing entrance with Hotel Giada and although we knew that, we lost some 2-3 minutes standing in front of the hotel not being sure where exactly is the entrance and wandering are we on the right place. Plate with name of the hotel is small and just beside the door and reception is on the first floor!
This area is very lively since it is during the day full of tourist that wants to shop various kinds of leather products and souvenirs on open market with street stalls. Stalls continue towards Mercato Centrale which is just arround the corner, were you can buy and eat on the spot fantastic Italian food. In the evening this area of San Lorenzo is place where many tourists and lot of locals come in order to take tasty dinner...
Stuff is friendly and willing to help. Ciao Eva, Simona, Giuseppe and Maurizio!! Thank you on your kind hospitality and assistance!

Not impressed with entrance and lift, we were pleasantly surprised with the rest. Room was clean, very spatious, walls of the room very nicely painted, high ceiling, with 2 windows on the opposite sides of the room, very good sound-isolation of outer noise, air-condition, very specious twin bed with comfortable mattress (we slept very well), clean and functional bathroom, plasma TV, free Wi-Fi, safety-box, small refrigerator with bottle of cold sparkling wine and bottle of mineral water. These and fruit basket were courtesy of the hotel to welcome us.
Breakfest was tasty and emple (buffet), but little-bit monotinious. Since the Hotel Medici is sharing breakfest room with Hotel Giada, it is strongly recomended to book the time for next breakfest in advance, since breakfest room is rather small and all in order not to wait untill the table is free, ready and food re-fillled. But in breight mornng having the breakfest looking through the window on Medici Chapel and drinking real Italian espesso made by Maurizio or Eva you find out how the life is good to you.
We have stayed 7 days in the hotel and sure we will return back on our next visit to Florence!

Room Tip: Room no. 108 is spacious, large and excelent mattress, everything is very decent, it is noise part o...

We could not.find this hotel because it only meant for those who are searching some hotel through online booking. There was no visible notice that this is th hotel you're looking for. I bet the owner had fooled the tax guy good enough by hiding this hotel presence. We were lucky at the breakfast time we just arrived at the dining area which was only 6 table got an empty table. We felt so sorry that the couple behind us had to wait for 20 minutes before they could had their bfast with dissapointment. Try other hotel. In addition when you sleep use a pair of heavy duty earplug. Hundreds of people are pulling their trolley on bouncy alleyway beside this building since and every 4:30am. They all came from every part of this city to set their goods in the area of san lorenzo and piazza duomo.

Perfect location, but the wifi didn't work (part of the reason why we booked this hotel), the t.v didn't work, the hair dryer didn't work and the bedroom was dusty and smelt very stale. very average, although the breakfast and service was fine.

It's right in the middle of the city. You're everywhere within a walking distance of just 5 or 10 minutes. Just a 10 minute walk from the trainstation. 5 Minutes to the Duomo. The rooms are spacious and clean. I read people who are disappointed about breakfast, but breakfast in Italy is never a big deal. Italians hardly take any breakfast themselves, that's probably the reason, that there is not enough attention for a lot of people. But - compared to other hotels that I've been - this breakfast is great. You just have to ask if there's nothing left of the ham and cheese for instance. I stayed here 3 times now and surely will come back next year!

Very central hotel 2 minutes walk to the duomo, 5 to the central station. Hotel is very clean, rooms are spacious, air conditioned, very clean and newly renovated. Staff was great and very helpful even guy with glasses that everyone seems to complain about was very helpful to say the least. Breakfast was good, not excellent they could do better. Overall, the hotel surpassed all my expectations and is one of the best hotels we ever stayed in, I would definitely return.
