Beautiful Hotel in a 15th Century Palace

Stay in a Luxury Hotel in a Convenient Location

The Bernini Palace is a five star hotel located in a 15th century palazzo, or palace. The interior blends the original architectural elements such as the interior arches and columns in the lobby, period frescoes on the ceiling and walls, and a Juliet balcony inside. The nearby Hotel Lugarno is also a five star property, but it doesn't have the same convenience of being near the famous destinations found in the old city of Florence.

Walk to Famous Destinations 

The Bernini Palace is only a few minutes walk to destinations like the Uffizi Gallery, Badia Fiorentino, Fountain of Neptune, Bargello Museum, Ponte Vecchio, and more. Art lovers and historians alike can see famous works of art that include Michelangelo's David at the Accademia, then go to the Uffizi Gallery to see more famous paintings and sculptures. Also nearby is the Duomo, or Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore, an impressive Renaissance-era cathedral designed by Fillippo Brunelleschi, a famous architect and engineer of his time.

Food options near the hotel are plentiful. One such is Trattoria Mario, a family owned restaurant that offers hearty meals. Experience a multi-course dinner at Ristorante Il Latini to get a sampling of local dishes. Eat in at the hotel restaurant, La Chiostrina, for nouvelle cuisine based on traditional dishes.

Relax in Beautifully Appointed Rooms

The Bernini Palace offers rooms in Classic, Superior, Deluxe, Junior Suite and Suite. All rooms are furnished with antiques but include modern conveniences such as flat-screen TVs and free WiFi connections. Bedding includes pure linen bed sheets and hypoallergenic duvet covers or light cotton quilted satin covers. Classic and Superior rooms feature exclusive textiles and elegant lighting. Deluxe rooms are larger and have huge closets for hanging clothes. Junior Suites have a separate sitting area, and Suites boast the most space out of all the options.

The Bottom Line

The hotel offers quality accommodations and strives to meet guests' needs. Staff members are friendly and attentive to guests, whether they have accommodation questions or desire concierge services. Rooms offer plenty of space, and they certainly won't make guests feel like they're sleeping in a closet. Housekeeping services turn down the bedding and leave chocolates on the bed nightly, a nice touch to return to after a day seeing the sights.

An ideal choice if easy access to the main sights is a priority.
An upscale property in the historic center of Florence, conveniently located close to many restaurants, bars, shops, and top attractions.
