Florence's cathedral, river and portfolio of modern art galleries lay within one kilometer of this top class, 1894-built residence restored to its nineteenth century grandeur in the 1990s. Individually designed guestrooms share eclecticism as a theme, boasting as they do fusions of fabric and furnishings: Chinese porcelain, bronze and oak period pieces combine with gossamer lace, brocades and silk. Padded fabric wall coverings dotted with 17th century artworks coordinate with draperies, upholstered chairs and bed spreads. Contemporary touches have been introduced to guestrooms in the form of cable television, minibars and Internet ports. Marble bathroom suites offer equally modern conveniences including telephones and a full range of complimentary toiletries.
Between taking breakfast and a dinner of Tuscan specialties in the foliage-heavy, chandelier and candle- lit Winter Garden, guests lunch in the Sapor di V, where a selected wine list complements the Italian-themed menu. Outside mealtimes, guests may take tea and pastries in the library. Concierge, 24-hour room service and a selection of small to medium sized conference rooms are offered for guests' use. Massage treatments can be taken in guestrooms or specially designated therapy zones. A range of recreational activities including swimming and tennis are available in the property's vicinity. Guests find the city's railway, coach and bus stations less than one kilometer from the hotel's doorstep. Florence airport is ten kilometers, or around a 20-minute drive from the hotel. A typical taxi fare from the airport terminal to the hotel should cost in the region of 20 EUR. Alternatively, there is a half-hourly bus, which takes passengers to Santa Maria Novella Station in the center of Florence.
