Travellers' Choice
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).

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Our stay at the Hotel Orto De Medici in Florence was fantastic. Staff was very pleasant and helpful. Rooms were very nice and comfortable. We spent the day in Cinque Terra and our bus back to the hotel was running late, we had reservations for dinner and were going to be about 1/2 hour late for dinner. When we arrived back at the hotel I asked if they could call the restaurant and let them know we would be running late so we could get ready. They readily agreed to call for us. By the time we got ready and passed by the front desk they told us they had spoken with the restaurant and that everything was fine and the restaurant was expecting us. Checking in was a breeze. We were early for check in. They stored our bags so we could go tour Florence. When we returned the room was ready and our bags were already in the room. I highly recommend if you are staying in Florence to stay at the Hotel Orto De Medici. Breakfast was also great.

Hotel's Favourite
My husband and I stayed in a few very nice hotels during our recent tour of Italy, but this place was our favorite. Be sure to read your packet from the hotel when you arrive in your room; you'll discover you are staying in the footprint of Bertoldo's former school for young artists - attended by a teenage Michelangelo. Every aspect of our stay was delightful. The front desk staff were very kind and helpful, as were the very sweet and swift breakfast attendants and the bartender, who offered us a complimentary welcome drink on the raised porch overlooking the lovely courtyard. Our room was comfortable and quiet, despite its location on a main thoroughfare of the city that led to many famous attractions and wonderful eateries. We thought the place was just beautiful, and made many indelible memories there.

Our hotel was the perfect spot to stay during our trip to Florence. Centrally located so we were able to enjoy the entire city. Reception was very welcoming and even had champagne waiting for us as it was our honeymoon. The breakfast is unbelievable and the staff is so friendly as well. Would stay here again!

The location is perfect!! It’s steps away from st mark’s square but on a quiet square. The breakfast was great and the AC worked like a charm. We stayed in the large room at the top and it was gorgeous with a stunning view of the church across the street. The shower was tiny bit totally manageable. We made the mistake of taking a crowded vaporetto - do yourself a favor and take a private water taxi straight to the hotel door!! It’s expensive but with a family (or luggage) it’s worth skipping the crowded public transportation.

The Orto De Medici is a beautifully renovated historic property, with well appointed bedrooms facing onto the garden. It is close to the centre, and there are several restaurants just a couple of streets away, whilst the hotel itself is a haven of quiet and cool in the summer heat. The delicious breakfast is served in the bar and terrace area. All the staff were exceptionally helpful and welcoming. This was our fourth visit to Florence and the Orto De Medici is without doubt the hotel to which we hope to return. The best way of summing up this review is to say that there is nothing which we would want to change.

Wonderful property, close location to city centre. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and the staff was quite friendly and responsive. The afternoon popsicles were a nice treat, too! Our family had two rooms which also made it a pleasure.
