Owned by the Ferragamo family and the flagship property of the Lungarno Collection, Hotel Lungarno is a restoration of a 16th century grand residence and is located in one of the most extraordinary locations of Florence, with views that overlook the Arno River and the iconic Ponte Vecchio. A new chapter was added to the history of the property in 1995, the hotel stands out as one of the most desirable destinations in the city for international clientele, with a magical atmosphere of timeless hospitality and inviting charm. The interior design created by architect Michele Bönan is inspired by the nuova classicità, featuring a smart balance of ivory-toned fabrics and ocean blue carpets with elegant details and antique furnishings that create the ambience of an aristocratic Italian residence. 2017 marks the 50th anniversary of welcoming guests to the Hotel Lungarno, complete with a redevelopment of the entire hotel including new, exquisite details. Guests will now be able to admire this spectacular panorama in the elegant new Reception Area, and over 450 works of art including those by Cocteau, Picasso, Bueno and Rosai adorn the walls of public areas and each of the guest rooms and suites. A design by Picasso set above the central fireplace can also be found in guest room living areas. Guests enjoy privileged access to Borgo San Jacopo restaurant – the city’s “dining room on the river” – with seasonal menus that draw upon the tradition of the great Italian kitchen with a contemporary twist. Hotel Lungarno has 49 guest rooms and 14 luxury suites, as well as 2 Executive Floors for maximum privacy and large groups. Pampering and luxurious, all accommodations look out through large windows and individual terraces onto views of the Arno River and ancient Florence.
