Hotel Orto de Medici is away from the touristy areas of Florence, but in walking distance to all the top sites. No real need to use public transportation as the city is quite compact and easily walkable. The hotel front desk staff was very helpful and the rooms are clean and efficient. The hotel also provides free wifi. There is...

I found this hotel via tripadvisor and from the time I book my reservations to the last minute I spent at Orto, all the staff were extremely helpful. My room was quite beyond my expectations. Very large and with a view to the main street. To start my day, breakfast is very good indeed with plenty of food. The staff...

Florence is a nice compact city, and this hotel is located just outside of the centre in a relatively quiet street. Our room was on the front with an enormous bed and a well equipped bathroom plus a chandelier! Breakfast was very good with plenty of choice, toast, boiled eggs, hams, cheeses, croissants and coffee, all served in a frescoed...

We stayed at the Hotel Orto De Medici between Christmas and New Year's Eve 2012.

This hotel was beautiful and my family of four was very comfortable. Very helpful staff and a good breakfast buffett.

During our vacation in Italy, we stayed, among other hotels, at the Hotel Orto de 'Medici in Florence. This is an excellent hotel in a building of the sixteenth century super maintained, clean and warm. The hotel staff is very helpful and considerate. And finally, there is a great breakfast.

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
