The location of this elegant hotel in Piazza della Repubblica is unbeatable—all the major Florentine landmarks are within five minutes on foot.

Once the family home of the aristocratic Feroni family, this hotel is composed of just 11 suites. Its grandiose 19thC décor is accentuated by the friendly, personalized attention of its staff, as well as the owners themselves.
