Four Seasons Hotel Firenze Reviews and Four Seasons Hotel Firenze information.
The Four Seasons Hotel Firenze is located on the edge of Florence’s historic center and occupies two protected Renaissance palaces, the 15th-century Palazzo della Gherardesca and the Conventino, a 16th-century Palazzo, which was once a convent. Between them lies Florence’s largest private garden – the 11-acre Giardino della Gherardesca. The palace’s ornately painted and crafted interiors offer guests the unique opportunity to view 15th – 19th century artwork in their original context. Frescoes, bas-reliefs, stuccoes and silk wallpapers have been carefully restored to reveal vivid detail dating back over five centuries.
Four Seasons Firenze features 116 sun-filled guest rooms and suites – no two are alike. Reflecting their rich architectural history, many suites feature original frescoes, friezes and hand-painted sculptured reliefs, blending Renaissance artistry with high-tech comfort. Designed to feel welcoming and comfortably residential, the accommodations are bright and airy, warmed by a mélange of warm Tuscan yellows and greens. Picturesque views encompass the neighboring streets, the surrounding palazzos and gardens, and the hotel’s own central Giardino della Gherardesca.
