The location of this hotel was absolutely perfect to make the most of a few nights' stay in beautiful Florence with my daughter. Everything is within just a few minutes walk! Although the hotel does not impress from the exterior at the moment, due to renovation work, the standard of accommodation is high for a 3 star hotel: very comfortable bed, first-rate shower, efficient lift and delicious breakfast with plenty of options. For us, those were all the important factors! The staff were kind and helpful, and everything was clean.
I did not find the employees of local restaurants and shops that friendly, but any time in this hotel I felt extremely welcomed. Everyone that works here goes above and beyond to make your stay a great experience. If you grew up in Midwest America, you're home here.
Much of the hotel has recently been renovated with only really the main entrance and reception to go. Our room had been renovated and was great, especially the bathroom. Our room was slightly on the small side, and didn't have much space to put your clothes or hang anything, but it was perfectly fine for us for a couple of nights and we could see that other rooms were bigger than the one that we had. The reception and breakfast staff were really friendly and helpful and nothing was to much trouble for them, from giving advice on places and things to do, to printing off things for us, to helping us to contact our airline who cancelled our flight on us, they were happy to help. The breakfast selection was perfectly adequate, if not as large as some other places. The location is a major selling point, it is only a 5 minute walk from the main train station, just to the side of a beautiful Plazza and within walking distance of just about every attraction. There is a tourist information centre about 5 mins away near the train station and we took a city sightseeing bus which also goes from the train station. There are also lots and lots of places to eat to choose from near the hotel, and the markets (selling mainly bags and leather goods) are literally just outside the door. We enjoyed our stay both in the hotel and Florence!
We had a wonderful stay at Hotel Corte dei Medici! It was our favorite hotel of the 4 we stayed in for our trip to Italy. They upgraded our room at check-in and it was a beautiful, spacious room with a walk-in rain shower that I'm still dreaming of. The breakfast had a lot of options and offered made-to-order coffee, as well. The staff was incredibly friendly and we enjoyed talking with Nina on multiple occasions. We found the hotel to be well-located and an easy walk to the train station and all sights we wanted to visit. The only downside to our visit was that our room was a bit noisy at night (we were on the first floor, and I think there is a restaurant below, plus some street noise), so I'd request a higher floor if you are a light sleeper.
The hotel was easy to find even in the dark. It's undergoing renovation ATM but we did not have any disruption. When we arrived the man on the rest was very helpful, even printing out a timetable for trains to pisa, that we didn't even ask him to do. He showed us to the room and how things worked. When we walked in to the room it wasn't quite what we had expected and he informed us that he had given us a free upgrade to a deluxe room with a view, amazing. Breakfast was also lovely. Would recommend staying here to anyone.
My friends and I stayed here for one night and it was by far our favorite hotel during our 2 week trip in Italy. The room was clean and had everything we needed. The staff was incredibly kind and helpful, particularly Filippo who helped us check in. He gave us great recommendations of places to visit and made us feel very welcomed. We had such a pleasant stay because of him! We were so sad to leave the next morning, especially after trying their delicious breakfast. The hotel is in a convenient location near a lot of sights and the train station which helped us make the most of our short stay.
I stayed in this hotel for five night and all I can tell is that exceeded my expectations ! The best hotel i have ever been with the nicest staff the best breakfast, clean and nice rooms, everything five stars! Choose this hotel for your stay in Florence, worth every Penny . The view is Great, the location and everything is just perfect !!! Thank you Corte dei Medici for making my staying in Florence just perfect !!!
I've been to Florence 2 weeks ago with my sister and it was a pure leisure trip. We stayed at the Corte dei Medici hotel amazing hotel super friendly staff and excellent location. Attractive tourist areas are only Walking distance starting from food market Florence Duomo train station etc... worth noting that you feel at home with the great host we had Nina is a woman of a kind super helpful so gentle,Anna, Chiara , Rachel . We arrived at 2am in the morning and Erion the guy at the reception welcomed us and started explaining where to go on Sunday and what to do. I would highly recommend this hotel from all aspects I wish I can go back and stay longer Thank you lovely ladies !Ciao
This is a small super nice and friendly hotel with a walking distance to everything you want to see in Florence.. You got lots of restaurants in the area and the shopping streets are not to far away. This was my second stay and I will always stay here when in Florence!!! I arrived by car and please follow the instructions given from the hotel when you tell them you will arrive by car.. We got a really nice sightseeing of Florence extremely narrow streets because we didn´t from the start.. ;-).. They got a valet parking service so you don´t have to worry about finding your own parking space.
Even though this hotel is under renovation, the rooms are great, bathroom has an awesome shower and the huge bed so comfortable to sleep in. They even gave us complimentary bottle of sparkling wine! The breakfast is fantastic, can't say anything negative about the hotel. The renovations are in the main entrance only so it never bothered us. Would highly recommend it and would come back anytime. Thanks again!!
