Hotel Lungarno

Classic style in Florence
VERIFIED LUXURY
Just steps from Florence’s famous Ponte Vecchio bridge sits Hotel Lungarno, the first of the Ferragamo family’s Lungarno Collection, a series of luxury hotels in Florence and Rome all with unique visions and identities. Hotel Lungarno is the most classic of the bunch, attracting honeymooners and Italians alike.

Coming off a recent renovation, the lobby now welcomes you with a comfortable lounge feel, new technology to expedite the check-in process and direct, breathtaking views of the Ponte Vecchio. The design reflects a subtle maritime theme with elegant river boat colors of white and blue. The light-filled spaces are enhanced by original art from several top names, including Picasso and Cocteau, and the hotel itself features more than 450 pieces of 20th-century works.

The picture-perfect Picteau Lounge encourages you to opt for an afternoon negroni and take in a little of Florence with each sip while gazing at incredible views of the Arno River.

Our Inspector's Highlights
  • The Florence hotel has possibly the best views in the city and definitely one of the best locations on the south banks of the Arno.
  • Each spacious accommodation offers stunning views of either the Ponte Vecchio or historic Florence. 
  • For those looking for something more medieval, book one of the rooms in the 13th-century Marsili Tower, which has exposed original bricks wall, floor-to-ceiling windows and canopy beds.
Things to Know
  • One of the perks of staying at a Ferragamo property is the ability to indulge in exclusive bath products by Tuscan Soul.
  • While the hotel itself does not have an onsite spa, White Iris Beauty Spa, located at nearby sister hotel Continentale, has a wide range of treatments and a serene atmosphere.
  • Free entrance to the Salvatore Ferragamo Museum (and a store discount) is also included in room rates.
The Rooms
  • All of the hotel's 64 rooms have been recently renovated, with 10 new suites specially designed for families, offering space for up to four guests.
  • Guest rooms are bright, filled with light and follow the blue-and-white theme in a sophisticated fashion.
  • Each room has unique touches — from antique hardwood furniture and different works of art, often featuring Renaissance greats, to varying views of the city and river below.
  • The beds are quite large, many with river views, Egyptian cotton sheets and cashmere throws; bathrooms are outfitted in Italian marble, of course.
  • Suites have fun named like Picasso or Cocteau and have an open-space layout with walls washed in light blue.

  • Enjoy your morning meal al fresco complete with views of the Arno River or in the redesigned light filled lobby.

  • The recently revitalized menu invites you to experience inventive Italian cuisine from various regions around the country, resulting in dishes like a delicious spaghetti alla carbonara made with potatoes and wild boar ravioli.
