After a long renovation started a few years ago, Hotel Orto de’ Medici in Florence is now a luxury 4-star hotel with exclusive facilities
Hotel Orto de’ Medici in Florence is located in the city center, precisely in the historical street via San Gallo, close to the Galleria dell’Accademia and the Cathedral. It is hosted in a special Renaissance building hiding a unique place – the garden where the Medici family created their Art School. According to the legend, Lorenzo il Magnifico first met Michelangelo here, while he was just a kid and was starting sculpting marble.
After a complex renovation and the recognition of the 4th star in 2018, now Hotel Orto de’ Medici is one of the best luxury hotels in Florence. The atmosphere featured in every room and suite is sophisticated and stylish. Textiles and materials have precious colors, going from pearl white and silver to light brown. The furniture is modern and essential, bright and airy. An inimitable good taste remains the main characteristic of the hotel.
Hotel Orto de’ Medici distinguishes for its Superior Rooms with a view, which offers some of the most stunning views of Florence. From there, you can admire an impressive Florentine skyline, ranging from the Cathedral’s Dome and the Medici Chapels up to the legendary hills surrounding the city.
Most of the rooms and suites of the 4-star hotel overlook the delightful inner garden, a quiet and special place to relax outdoors after a day of sightseeing Florence. It is a rare and delicate ambience, mood is soft and perfect. Hard to find in such a central location… so really precious!
In order to escape from ordinary and take refuge in a dreamy island, every room boasts on the walls black and white photos by Lucia Baldini, a photographer that immortalized some Florence artworks usually not displayed to the public. Unique details of a worldwide famous city, one of the most visited in Italy.
In the bathrooms, guests can treat themselves with biological products for hands and body made with organic olive oil 100% made in Italy. To have some fun or quiet time during the stay, the Hotel Orto de’ Medici also features a beautiful terrace with free wi-fi connection, where you can sit and order drinks and aperitifs. And 2019 news is just in: the terrace and garden recently changed their look – and the brand new look is amazing! It perfectly combines bright light with a sophisticated mood and luxury details.
This last renovation works well, in fact, it has completely transformed the garden and the terrace, adding a touch of extreme elegance to the whole property. The open-air terrace where breakfast is usually served in the summer morning, now appears wider and brighter.
A veranda extending the breakfast hall outside and a brand new gazebo with a bar service are the latest innovations of the 4-star hotel in the center of Florence.
Together with the terrace, the garden underwent some changes, especially in plants and flowers: now some Tuscan cypress trees adorn the ambience, giving a typical and suggestive touch.
