This three-star hotel in San Marco redefines elegance with its majestic ceilings, chic oyster-grey colour scheme and contemporary furnishings, set off to perfection by the historic palazzo in which it languishes. Hunt down the odd remaining 19th-century fresco, and don't miss the garden with lemon trees in terracotta pots and rambling ivy. To splurge, go for a room with its own flowery terrace.
Hotel Orto de' Medici features free WiFi, a charming internal garden from the 16th century, and a panoramic terrace with views of Florence. It is a 10-minute walk from the Duomo. Guests can relax in the lounge, decorated with original frescoes and antique furniture. This historic building also boasts a Tuscan stone staircase and a suggestive corridor with vaulted ceilings. All air-conditioned rooms are decorated in modern style. Some offer views of the medieval roofs, or of the garden. They provide satellite channels, a minibar and a private bathroom. The hotel is 1 km from Santa Maria Novella Train Station, and has good public transport connections. A pleasant 20-minute stroll through the historic centre leads to Ponte Vecchio.
