We arrived by car but you can walk everywhere and it's around the corner from San Marco Square to catch a bus. The front desk people were very nice and helpful. We walked everywhere. 5 minute walk to Duomo, same with Uffitzi Gallery. The breakfast oread was very nice. Eggs, pancakes, bread, juices, coffee (all types) and service was nice....

This is my second stay here and my hubby's first - he got the recommendation from a co-worker and for the past 5 years we've recommended it to our daughter, cousin and friends. It does not disappoint! The staff is friendly and helpful, and will make dinner and museum reservations. There are Mac computers in the lobby, free to use....

The staff booked our tours, gave excellent recommendations, and were extremely friendly. The room was very nice with a king size bed. Breakfast was incredible, with fresh squeezed orange juice, superb coffee/espresso, and a great view. This hotel made our trip to Florence!

We stayed at this centrally located, historic hotel for 5 wonderful nights. Breakfast on the outdoor terrace was superb, after a very quiet, restful sleep in our room, and the front desk staff were always friendly and helpful, especially in their recommendations for nearby restaurants or when directions were needed. Highly recommended.

We are a couple in our 70's from Texas and this was our second stay at this wonderful hotel. We can't imagine a better place to stay in Florence. It is beautiful, very quiet, and comfortable in every way. Most of the rooms have views of the "Garden of the Medici" which is delightful. The staff and breakfast are first...

It is hard to find something, to complain about. The only (small) thing, is that the chairs at the breakfastroom could be better. May be one or two chairs at the room. Everything else was as expected, super. It is both quiet and central placed, couldn't be better.

The Orto de Medici is a good hotel to use as a base for touring Firenze / Florence: the staff are friendly and helpful, and the breakfast is fine. It is a pleasant walk from the heart of Florence along interesting streets and it may even be historic, if their claims about being the place where Michelangelo learned some of...

Dear Guest, Thanks for your beautiful review. Yes, the Michelangelo story is totally true, there are some Wikipedia articles about it too, if you look for "Giardino di San Marco". Francesco

The hotel was beautifully furnished with a very modern, spacious feel to it. However it was the staff that made this hotel amazing - they were so kind and attentive to our every need. They have made me sure I will return to Florence, and specifically the Hotel Orto de Medici!

We traveled Europe for two weeks and spend 4 of those nights at this hotel. It was our favorite because of the clean rooms, the garden/terrace area, and the wonderful continental breakfast. It was also located close to the big attractions, but far enough away to give you a little peace and quiet.

Staying in San Marco

Neighbourhood Profile
San Marco
The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a stone’s throw away from the Duomo of Florence, surprises everyone. A continuous flow of backpacking students provides the tranquil surroundings for the elderly residents who sit in Piazza San Marco to read the daily newspaper. Home to several universities, including the Academy of Fine Arts, San Marco is one of the most vibrant cultural centers in the city. A bridge connecting the modern cultural activity of Florence to its classic art, represented by the everlasting magnificence of the original David, resonates as a symbol of Florence and of Italy as a whole. Get lost in a Neoclassic world, a journey back in time through historic buildings like Spedale degli Innocenti (Hospital of the Innocents), San Marco church, Basilica della Santissima Annunziata, and natural jewels like the Botanical Gardens.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Florence Hotel Orto de' Medici’s location is ideal because while located in the “historic center” of Florence it is just outside the noisy hustle and bustle…which is only a short walk away. When walking through our hotel in Florence, you really do feel like you are in a classic and upscale historic building. The front desk staff is very helpful and friendly, and from the moment you arrive you are made to feel very welcome. Each room is uniquely and elegantly appointed, a restful oasis for the busy traveler. The bathroom is very spacious and the shower is wonderful after a long day of sightseeing. Breakfast, with plenty to select from, is served in a cozy room that spills out into a welcoming patio and a beautiful little garden. The hotel lobby and reading rooms are a nice place to relax after a full day of sightseeing (plus free internet - either wifi or with brand new Apple computers). ... more   less
