Living in Italy and being a lecturer on luxury cruise ships means I get rather spoiled.
When I go to Florence I like to have luxury surroundings but without 5 star prices. Orto dei Medici offers the best of both worlds: top level accomodations (large marble shower with powerful shower head, hip furnishings , comfy beds) set inside an elegant palazzo in central area close to San Marco (finally got to visit this time) . I've stayed in both the original building and the new annex overlooking the garden and Verrocchio fountain . Friendly breakfast staff and new lounges, free computer use are other pluses.

Room Tip: Garden view no. 80 absolute silence... only music of birds singing.

Thanks for sharing your experience at the hotel with all the travellers. It is especially precious from a returning client and a person who is into the travel business like you, and I am so glad to read how you enjoyed the atmosphere, the decoration, the staff and the breakfast of the hotel.
Grazie! Francesco Bini

Very good location, many tourist attractions just a short walking distance away. We never had to use a bus or a taxi except for the airport connection.
Nice historic building, very clean and elegant rooms (had to change the first one we've got, found it too drafty), unexpectedly wide food selection at the buffet breakfast, nice, friendly and helpful staff, very efficient breakfast team. We felt very well taken care of during the whole stay. Very nice reading room and breakfast room with a view to the wonderful garden.
On the negative side, the rooms were not very soundproof. Some of the doors were as old as the historic building itself and didn't close very well. Noises, a perfectly normal occurrence in every hotel, seemed to go through all but unfiltered.
But overall, a very pleasant stay in a wonderful city. I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Florence!

Dear Guest,
Thank you for your review. Hearing that you felt taken care of is very nice for us! Room changes or upgrades when possible is just one of our ways of trying to satisfy our clients needs. We are glad you were satisfied! As for the unexpected noise problems, we apologize. Unfortunately in a hotel sometimes there are noisy clients.

great hotel. We stayed in room 81 with a cute balcony overlooking the garden. The breakfast was great and the room was spacious with a lovely bathroom. The staff were extremely helpful .We highly recommend this hotel.

Room 81 is one of our best rooms, with "Deluxe" style decor and the cute balcony overlooking the garden. Thanks for leaving your appreciations about the breakfast, the room and the helpful staff.

Great location, only 4 minutes to the Duomo. Great lobby with free Wifi. Good size immaculate rooms. Friendly front desk people. When my wife took ill, they recommended a local doctor who spoke English and who was terrific to my wife. Good breakfast in a lovely setting. If I ever return to Florence, I would stay here again... thank you Hotel Orto De Medici....

Room Tip: Our 2 rooms were terrific so I suspect they all are there...
