In beautiful Florence and Rome, visitors have a fine choice of top hotels. But the properties of the Lungarno Collection catch the eye for their unique locations and their artistic, elegant and intimate design. When you take a look at any one of the six properties in Italy owned by the fashionable Ferragamo family, it becomes clear that they are the careful work of someone with an eye for beauty and detail.
All the properties number among the best 5-star hotels Florence offers visitors. It is easy to see why. While it would be relatively easy to find a beautiful hotel with view away from Florence and Rome crowds, the Lungarno Collection is special because of the dreamy intimacy the properties provide right in the heart of the two Italian cities. These hotels are icons of luxury and elegance, where the stylish, artistic and fashionable people of Florence and Rome meet. There is the added attraction of a Michelin-starred chef Peter Brunel overseeing all culinary concepts for the collection.
Romantic Boutique Hotels in Florence
The Lungarno Collection includes the romantic boutique hotels Continentale and Gallery Hotel Art Florence. When it comes to 4-star design hotels, Florence has plenty of them. These two properties, however, are set in quiet courtyards at enviable locations.
The Continentale Hotel is situated in the popular Ponte Vecchio area, and features an iconic rooftop bar on a medieval tower. Views of the Arno river and the surrounding city are big hotel attractions. The hotel interiors are in welcoming white colours harmonized with simple and elegant accents. Guests find unique little details in their rooms, such as handmade leather trunks as desks and clocks as side tables.
The Gallery Hotel Art is a design hotel in Florence located in the proximity of Ponte Vecchio, set in a quiet courtyard, and features simple and elegant interiors. The stylish hotel showcases the touch of Italian designer Michele Bönan. The atmosphere is light and an artistic throwback to the 1950s. The hotel frequently houses exhibitions of modern artists. The Fusion Bar & Restaurant is arguably the best cocktail bar in town featuring a fusion-nikkei cuisine.
Timeless Luxury and Style in Florence
The Portrait Firenze draws its inspiration from haute couture and timeless luxury, and seeks to be something more than a hotel. The property features 34 elegantly outfitted suites. The Portrait Firenze is personal, intimate and designed to be exclusive. It has an off-street address in an otherwise popular location, at a premium spot overhanging the Arno river, and an Italian bistrot Caffè dell’Oro that offers exclusive views of the Ponte Vecchio just yards away. Italian design that blends contemporary sophistication and timeless elegance gives the suites elusive charm and intimacy that appeal to discerning guests.
Exclusive Setting along the Arno in Florence
Lungarno is the name for the cobbled streets that once stretched along the Arno river. The Lungarno Collection’s Hotel Lungarno is the only 5-star hotel Florence offers right along the Arno. This signature luxury hotel features plush interiors with luxurious touches, and a 1-Michelin star restaurant Borgo San Jacopo serving Italian and Tuscan gourmet delicacies. The Uffizi Gallery is a short walk away, but the hotel features its own art collection with works by Picasso, Cocteau and other twentieth-century artists. Like the other Ferragamo hotels, Hotel Lungarno is also designed by Architect Michele Bönan and boasts its own distinct, classic Italian style. The rooms are special for their intimate views of the Arno, an exclusivity that no other Florence hotel can offer.
Luxurious Exclusivity and Personalization in Rome
The Portrait Roma in Rome is designed with a similar aesthetic as Portrait Firenze. The concept behind the two Portrait hotels is bespoke, personalized stay that goes beyond the uniform luxury of other 5-star hotels abounding in Rome. The exclusivity of these properties comes partly from their off-street locations and settings in private mansions. Services at the Portrait hotels are those of a 5-star property. The two Portrait hotels in Florence and Rome have won the 5-star Forbes award that recognizes only 26 hotels in Europe.
Portrait Roma’s suites display images of Rome from the 1950s, as well as sketches, drawings and even original shoe designs that Salvatore Ferragamo realized for great actresses. Nearby is the Trinità dei Monti looming above the Spanish Steps, and the famous and fashionable shopping street of Via Condotti.
Each of the properties of the Lungarno Collection is an icon of elegance, style and luxury, and full of personality. Little unique touches of design and decor show the attention to detail that has gone into the building and design of the properties. If you’re looking for a memorable stay in a luxury hotel in Rome or Florence, you’ll find that the Lungarno hotels offer a home away from home. Discerning guests will discover that no other hotels in either of the two Italian cities can rival the impressive settings, impeccable style, and 5-star offerings of the fabulous Lungarno properties.
