OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

The hotel is a little removed from the main sights of central Florence, about a 15-minute walk from the Duomo. What you miss in centrality is compensated for by the 11-acre gardens, which are an oasis of tranquillity in the heat of summer. A shuttle bus runs regularly into the centre.

By plane: direct flights from London to Florence take over 2 hours. The hotel is a 20-minute drive from the airport. On-site parking costs €55 per day. Book flights to Florence.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

The hotel is packed with unique architectural features, including bas reliefs dating back to the 16th century in the central lobby. Original carvings, painted ceilings and stucco work are complemented by choice pieces of antique furniture. The interiors were styled by Pierre-Yves Rochon who also worked on the George V in Paris.

THE FACILITIES

You can't fault the professional and attentive service in all areas of the hotel, from the concierge who can make anything happen to the door porter who will arrange your complimentary transfer into town. The spa is a temple to beauty and the only spa in the world offering cosmetic treatments with the Italian brand Rephase.
