Opened in 2008 by the well-known Canadian luxury hotel chain which owns some 85 hotels all over the world. It occupies the splendid Palazzo della Gherardesca surrounded by the largest private garden in Florence. The entire property, including a former 16th-century convent in the garden (with an entrance on Via Gino Capponi), has been spectacularly restored and the lovely 11-acre garden still has the aspect of romantic 19th-century parkland, supplied with a swimming pool and spa building. Restaurant Il Pelagio also has tables outside; in summer you can have a light meal by the pool. Nicely central; under 10mins walk from Piazza San Marco. A night in the Royal Suite may cost you some f15,000, but if that does not surprise you then this is the place for you.
Number of rooms: 117
