Our favourite rooms
From the Rooftop Terrace Suite River View, feast your eyes on a 360-degree cityscape taking in the Duomo, Palazzo Pitti and the Ponte Vecchio; the interiors are dedicated to the abstract designs of Luciano Schifano.
In-room treatments can be arranged, or you can pop over to sister hotel, Continentale, for a session in their serene White Iris beauty spa. If you’re after a personal trainer, just ask the hotel staff. They can also provide yoga mats and training videos so you can work out in your own room.
A travel paint set, to capture (or at least try to capture) this capital of art on paper. Worst case, you can write your 5-year-old niece’s name on the bottom and stick it on your fridge – no one will ever know.
All public areas are accessible by wheelchair; some of the rooms have roll-in showers.
Critter companions are welcomed, as long as they don’t exceed the 10kg weight limit. There’s no extra charge, and a dog bed, bowl and a few pedigree snacks will be waiting in your room. See more pet-friendly hotels in Florence.
All ages welcome. Cots and baby bed linen can be added to all rooms. Babysitting is available for €30 an hour; book at least one day in advance. Highchairs and changing mats available. Crayons and paints provided on request.
