More Room Types

The 5-star boutique Hotel Ville sull'Arno is a 15th-century villa on the banks of the River Arno in the historic Tuscan city of Florence. The property, which is set in walled landscaped gardens, draws on the city's strong affiliation with Italian art, and is particularly associated with the late 19th-century Macchiaioli painters (early Italian Impressionists).

Ponte Vecchio -- a mediaeval arch bridge over the Arno that's lined with shops and bars -- is a 32-minute walk from the hotel. Piazza della Repubblica and Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore are both approximately 36 minutes by foot. You can also borrow a bike from the hotel and cycle in to the city, which takes around 10 minutes and is a good choice on a hot day, or alternatively you take a taxi to the city, which will cost around 8.50€ each way.

The hotel's Flora & Fauno restaurant and accompanying Dante's Bar are "well-geared to all-year dining: in summer, tables spill out into the garden, while a fireplace keeps things cosy in winter" (The Daily Telegraph). The restaurant serves Italian cuisine and Tuscan specialties with a contemporary twist, and both it and the far offer a good selection of Tuscan wines. There’s also a heated outdoor swimming pool in the grounds, a spa and a wellness centre with an indoor heated pool, a fitness centre, and various health and beauty treatments on offer (charges apply).

The villa features 45 guest rooms, with types ranging from Superior, Deluxe and Executive to Junior Suites and Family Rooms. Most rooms have river views and private balconies, and all are individually decorated in a Florentine style with marble fittings. Upgrade to a Junior Suite, located in the loft, which features Jacuzzi hot tubs on the private river-facing balconies. Wi-Fi is included in all rates.
