Great value and only 10 minutes walk to the duomo. The free breakfast is really good and the staff was very helpful. Parking is a minor inconvience because the lot is not right next to the hotel. Also very close to the academia museum.

We are so happy with our experience here. The location is superb- an easy 15 minute walk from the train station (we just brought carryons- wouldn't be that easy with big bags). It's a stunner when you enter- a lovely reception with a library/lounge downstairs. Staff is wonderfully accomodating- providing a converter so I could plug in my computer, umbrella...

We stayed at Orto de Medici for one one night in October. The hotel is lovely - big, clean, modern rooms with very comfortable beds.

I have stayed here twice and have enjoyed it both times. It has modern conveniences and old world charm. Both times I had a large group of college art students in tow and the hotel welcomed all of us warmly. It is located within easy walking distance of most of the main attractions.

Nice hotel, modern rooms but old-world ambience. Good location in florence, excellent breakfast. All staff were very helpful. We had two different rooms - one was perfect and the other was shabby, so just be aware of an inconsistency in the rooms.

This was the quintessential Italian experience here. It is beautiful, quiet and perfectly located in a wonderful area. Would love to stay here again. The only negative was they don't have a hotel bar and the "cocktail party" bar maid serves you one welcome mimosa out on the patio from the laundry room or something - that seemed a bit...

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
