Our Favourite Art Hotels in Florence

Florence is the capital of Tuscany and one of central Italy’s largest cities. A great centre of medieval Europe, it is considered by some to be the home of the Italian Renaissance. Its sights include the Duomo, with its famed terracotta dome, and its beautiful city centre including the Piazza della Signoria. Views from the Piazzale Michelangelo are considered some of the best cityscapes in all of Italy. Florence also hosts one of the world’s largest fashion fairs each year, meaning the city caters to every taste: you’ll find a mix of high-end 5-star hotels, modern design apartments, or smaller boutique hotels with pools and rooftop bars to liven up your visit. Florence has it all.

Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, please check local regulations before booking.

Villa Cora

“An impressive place to enjoy the magnificence of Florence. This hotel offers luxury in every sense of the word. A proof of this is the chauffeur who will be waiting to take you on a tour of the city.”

 

The breathtaking epitome of Florentine splendour, this is Villa Cora. Gilded mirrors, frescoes and silk curtains adorn the interiors. You might also be impressed by the gardens with fountains, a white stone pool surrounded by marble statues and plush white lounge sofas. The subterranean spa with hammam and the fine-dining restaurant, Il Pacha, are skillfully lined up, and a private chauffeur will drive you around Tuscany if you wish. Any other wishes?

The Place Firenze

“Ideal setting for a romantic getaway. Beautifully designed interiors lend themselves to honeymooners' trips. Sunset views from the terrace are not to be missed.”

 

More of a private townhouse than a hotel, the romantic The Place captivated us with details like a cosy library and freshly baked cakes for afternoon tea. The three rooms of the Lounge, a pink basement bar and the terrace, which extends onto the Piazza Santa Maria Novella, are the focus of the spacious house. But the jewel in the crown, we think, is the rooftop terrace with its loungers. Newlyweds and romantics appreciate this place for its legendary sunsets with a view of the impressive cathedral – and now, we do too. Fancy a sundowner?

Soprarno Suites

Soprarno Suites

“Exclusive residence for a quiet and peaceful stay in Florence. Away from the tourists but with an unbeatable location, it invites travellers who are looking for relaxation during their visit.”

 

With only 10 suites, the Soprarno is known for its contemporary style. Whimsical works of art adorn the rooms. While the classic floors are convincing, the designer furniture and free-standing bathtubs are all the more exclusive. The modern painted ceilings and the original frescoes on the walls blend together. An extensive breakfast awaits you, and its location – away from the tourist crowds, close to the Pitti Palace and the Boboli Gardens – allows for relaxed days in Florence. Who doesn't dream of that?

Gallery Hotel Art

“This hotel is for the demanding taste connoisseur. Its cocktails and fusion menu offer an extra point for visiting this great Italian city.”

 

As the birthplace of the Renaissance, Florence is the cradle of art and design. The Gallery Hotel Art embraces this, with contemporary black and white photographs of the city. New artists are always featured in the guest rooms and lobby, with changing exhibitions of modern art. We recommend a visit to the in-house Fusion Bar and Restaurant. Here, Peruvian and Japanese Nikkei cuisine are combined, a rather rare concept in Florence, and the creative cocktails also border on a fusion between the arts – our favourite is the Fusion 75, a mix of gin, lemongrass, lime juice and champagne. Delicious!

The St. Regis Florence

“The Florence experience doubles its bet if you choose to stay in this Renaissance-style hotel. Stay like a royal family with 24-hour butler service. Highly recommended.”

 

Extraordinary stays are yours at the St. Regis Florence Hotel, housed in a 15th-century palace designed by Brunelleschi himself. Everything here is pure opulence. Stained glass ceilings, hand-carved woodwork and antique furniture adorn the spacious guest rooms and suites, which are decorated in Renaissance Medici style. Coffered ceilings, massive frescoes and burgundy brocades tell the tale. Our tip: enjoy the 24-hour butler service and Bentley fleet at your disposal for a truly royal flair.

Continentale Hotel Florence

Continentale

“An inviting refuge for relaxation and the chance to mingle with the locals in its spectacularly designed bar. Hollywood glamour of the 1950s offers a different perspective about Florence.”

 

The cool retro-design hotel Continentale is first class. Period. The lobby, inspired by the 1950s, with photos of Audrey Hepburn and accents of powder pink, exudes Hollywood glamour. The Relax Room, with comfortable daybeds, offers grand views of the Ponte Vecchio for those seeking retreat. The oversized elevator, stocked with sofas, feels more like a living room, and the lively rooftop bar attracts both locals and guests, but especially lovers of impeccable style. Need we say more?

Portrait Firenze

“Excellent location, clean design and the view of the Arno river, make this hotel a place to stay.”

 

Fresh flowers, lovely details, free bikes to explore the area, a chic restaurant with a direct view of the Ponte Vecchio. This is the boutique hotel Portrait Firenze, located directly on the Arno River. To us, it looks like a private designer house. The interior is expectedly elegant with silver, gold, cream and grey tones, Danish Modern chairs, cashmere blankets and framed fashion prints. The excellent brunch at Caffe dell'Oro gets an extra star from us.

UNAHOTELS Vittoria Firenze

“This hotel is for the adventurous. Vibrant colours everywhere and a rebellious design invite you to an extravagant stay. A place to be surprised.”

 

A classic Tuscan façade houses the extraordinary UNAHOTELS Vittoria Firenze in Florence. Postmodern design is the theme. Walls covered and paneled with black leather and fuchsia felt await you. The bathrooms beguile with black and white tiles, purple washbasins and doors. Life-size silkscreen portraits of the most prominent personalities of the Renaissance are emblazoned everywhere. It’s an aesthetic continued in the in-house restaurant, whose eye-catcher is a cool S-shaped communal table. The more, the merrier.

Hotel Lungarno

“Breathtaking views to enjoy the freshly brewed coffee as well as a Michelin-starred restaurant. This hotel is for the most discerning guests.”

 

The Hotel Lungarno is one of Florence's most sophisticated establishments. With classic décor and stunning views from the room balconies, the house offers unique comfort. Fresh coffee is served in the bright living room lounge. The walls are lined with over 400 original works from Cocteau, to Picasso, to Bueno. The Michelin-starred restaurant Borgo San Jacopo offers pure excellence, and if you get a seat on the terrace along the river, you've hit the jackpot.
