Refined opulence in the centre of historic Florence
City | City-break | Food & wine | History & culture | Honeymoon | Short break
This luxurious hotel is right in the heart of Florence’s historic delights with a refined nautical-style blue, white and leather interior that works wonderfully with the 400 pieces of art, some as old as the 900s, that adorn each corner, while the sophisticated living room that's suspended over the river is perfect for a drink looking over spectacular views.
Masterpieces lead up to rooms, many of which are themed in the style of a unique Italian artist, such as Venna or Francesconi. Doubles are smart and elegant with black marble worktops and plush blue furnishings, or spoil yourself and opt for a river view suite, where you’ll enjoy wonderful vistas of Florence.
Come evening, the hotel’s Michelin-starred restaurant Borgo San Jacopo is fantastically situated right on the banks of the river for fantastic views of the famous Ponte Vecchio bridge as you enjoy signature dishes such as Chef Peter Brunel's potato spaghetti, wild boar ravioli or Memory of Lofoten, accompanied, naturally, by an excellent Italian wine list. For something extra special, book an elegant terrace on the river Arno for private and romantic dining. The stunning lounge bar is a perfect place for pre-dinner drinks or nibbles.
You're within walking distance of Florence’s delights, from the frescoed ceilings of the Duomo to the boutiques of Ponte Vecchio right by your hotel – explore with a boat trip on the Arno or discover works of art by the likes of Michelangelo and Picasso in the countless museums that dot the city.
