Bernini Palace Hotel, Florence

Piazza San Firenze, 29 - (Piazza della Signoria) , Florence, 50122, Italy

Love at First Sight

Hosted in a XV century building, the Bernini Palace hotel stands at the very heart of Florence, behind Piazza della Signoria and the Uffizi Gallery, just a stone’s throw from Palazzo Vecchio, the Michelangelo’s statue of David and the Porcellino market. It was the first building in Florence to be equipped with running water and a stable.

The five stars hotel boasts the presence of two concierges, belonging to the international association Les Clefs d’Or, who are ready to fulfil all the wishes of its guests. Formerly known as Hotel Parlamento, the Bernini Palace was the home and meeting place for many MPs of the time. There, the MPs continued their discussions after they went out of the Palazzo Vecchio or the Uffizi palace, which hosted the House of Deputies and the Senate of the old Kingdom of Italy.

Romance

The Renaissance ambience of Florence gives it a romantic storybook atmosphere, especially for lovers and lovers of art. This is a magical setting filled with works by Michelangelo and Botticelli, where you can admire fabulous views from the top of the Duomo or from the famous Piazzale Michelangelo. End with a kiss on the legendary Vecchio Bridge after a candlelit dinner of fine Italian cuisine and wine. The Bernini Palace is in the heart of this beauty and with its authentic and evocative atmosphere this iconic Palace is a romantic gem of Florence

Our Lounge Bar is an ideal haunt to drink a toast or arrange a romantic rendezvous. A professional barista and sommelier will serve you a wide range of cocktails and long drinks, including the Negroni, which was created in Florence by Count Camillo Negroni in 1919, and the Golden Martini, enriched with gold powder. At aperitif time, the drinks are paired with a selection of finger foods and cheeses. Open to the public from 10,30 a.m. till late night, the Lounge Bar is also an ideal location for gourmet after-dinner drinks, with a whiskey selection that includes about 50 fine blends.

And a favourite romantic place in our hotel is the Garden Terrace located on Bernini’s rooftop. Surrounded by the history of Florence, it overlooks the Palazzo Vecchio and is equipped with gazebos, pavilions and a solarium, as well as a call bar service. Perfect for enjoying romantic moments over a cocktail, an aperitif or, why not, a refreshing bath in the four-place Jacuzzi, which makes the terrace even more exclusive.

Your Stay

Bernini Palace Hotel is a prestigious 5 star in Florence, which is upgraded constantly to meet the needs of its luxury clientele seeking extreme attention to every detail and quality.

The rooms and suites can be considered as an excellent business card of the hotel: there is no “standard” room, each one is different from the others in its furnishings and atmosphere, each room exhibits antiques chosen one by one and has its own unique personality. Season after season, Bernini Palace renews some rooms so that its guests have a feeling of staying at a hotel that is always different, always “trendy”, always attentive to every detail, thus representing the concept of “Made in Italy” hospitality. The Bernini Palace offers 74 rooms (20 Classic Double; 20 Superior Double; 24 Deluxe Double and Deluxe Tuscan; 8 Junior Suite and Tuscan Junior Suite; 2 Suites). They are all equipped with modern comforts, such as soft linen sheets, exclusive Simmons’ mattresses, anti-allergy duvets and soft, cotton satin duvet covers.

The first floor is furnished in a picturesque Tuscan style, combining Renaissance and Oriental styles, with terracotta tile floors, warm-toned furnishings and textiles (red, amaranth, orange, gold), antique arrases, precious curtains and tapestries. All of them are unique pieces, which are in tone with the beamed ceilings and four-poster beds. All rooms overlook the inner yards, alleys and paths of Medieval Florence.

What to Do

We are in the cradle of the Renaissance, a few steps away from the Uffizi Art Gallery and David by Michelangelo. Make the most out of your stay in Florence, discover the city's most famous and unforgettable locations and surrounding areas. Savour the "Tuscan experience" and immerse yourself in the region's internationally renowned Renaissance culture.

Florence is also home to the most famous Italian designer brands, as well as a wide range of artisan products, such as gold jewellery, leather and hide clothing and accessories, making it renowned throughout the world for its arts and trades.

Or take a trip out to the gently rolling Tuscan hills - the perfect setting for nature and enjoying a tour of the vineyards. Tuscany is renowned as the birth place of world-acclaimed wines such as Chianti, the famous Brunello di Montalcino, Sangiovese and Morellino, to name but a few. Savour the inebriating perfume of must and breathtaking views of spectacular greenery, with hills covered by vineyards and olive groves for as far as the eye can see, dotted by Medieval hamlets.

The Food of Love

Flavour reigns supreme on this sensory journey of discovery through the aromas of Tuscan cuisine. From Florence to Chianti: every single part of the region is brimming with delicious discoveries of flavour and tradition. The food and wine tour begins in Florencea where you can discover the secrets of typical Tuscan recipes: crostini, ribollita, pappa al pomodoro, tripe and lampredotto.

At the hotel the large hall on the first floor now known as Sala delle Colazioni (‘Breakfast Hall’) was once called Buvette del Parlamento (Parliament’s Buvette). It is open to everyone, not just to the hotel guests. Its buffet offers a wide selection of homemade, organic and natural food, as well as baked products, and there is a dedicated area with gluten-free products. The Parliament hall is also available for private parties, special events and weddings.

The recently restored hotel’s restaurant La Chiostrina is located near the lobby, under a XVI century colonnade at the ground floor. Perfect for dinners, business meetings and light lunches, it is the right place to taste Tuscan typical cuisine and different kinds of dishes, thanks to a menu that changes according to the seasons.
