The hotel’s white-and-gray exterior displays the sober style characterizing Florentine architecture. Inside, however, colorful modernity dominates, beginning with a horizontal mosaic-tile spiral by notable Italian tile-manufacturer Bisazza that swirls above the entrance and unfolds to the front desk. A quilted-leather settee under a violet neon chandelier heightens the ultra-contemporary effect.
Amenity highlights: In keeping with Tuscans’ pleasure in communal dining, the hotel’s restaurant features a huge S-shaped contemporary communal table. The hotel’s bar contains two 8-foot horizontal spirals of loops upholstered in plush fabric and colored in gradients of bright orange to brown, with the bottom of each loop forming two lounging seats. An interior grass courtyard provides bar seating in warm weather.
Insider tip: Displaying massive iron-studded doors, Porta San Frediano, 500 meters (547 yards) from the hotel, was the gate through which Charles VIII of France and his entourage entered Florence in 1494. From there, the city’s old walls extend 1 km (0.75 miles) to Porta Romana, which lay on the ancient “high road” to Rome and through which Pope Leo X and Emperor Charles V entered Florence in 1536.
