My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Orto de Medici in mid March of 2012. We really enjoyed the room, especially the nice firm bed with Frette linens and the marble bathroom with a huge bathtub. Breakfast was in a lovely, light-filled room with beautiful floral murals. Our room overlooked the courtyard and the peaceful fountain there. We loved...

Stayed here for 3 lovely days, to celebrate my partner's birthday. The room was spacious and spotless. Staff were very friendly and helpful - they spotted the birthday cards in our room and when we returned later, we had some free chocolates and a note from the manager wishing my partner a happy birthday. Breakfast was good - nice selection...

First you're 10-15 mins from the centre of florence, in a nice neighbourhood. It's 15 minutes walk from the train station and where the Pisa airport shuttle bus drops you off. The road it's on it fairly quiet, so there isn't a constant sound of traffic, give that a main road is only just around the corner. We had a...

My boyfriend and I stayed at the hotel for about a week. The ideal hotel should be simply a place where you can get the rest you need for another day of exploring a fantastic city.

Good hotel. Cold staff. Well located, just a 5-10 min walk to the Duomo and city center. Free wifi with two iMacs in the lobby. Good breakfast. Expensive parking.

We spent 3 nights at Hotel Orto de Medici in early March. The hotel was lovely. Our room was huge, and even had a little balcony. We had a view of the little courtyard area. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars was because of the shower--it was very odd to me (maybe typical Italian??), but it had no...

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
