Type of rooms: Palazzo TolomeiSuperior Double:
These beautiful bedrooms retain the romantic atmosphere of the Baroque period: some of them have the particular, wooden coffered ceiling typical of the 1600's and extraordinarily elegant floors in original terracotta.
The antique charm is in perfect harmony with the contemporary furnishings. White, silver, gold, crystals, fine china, goblets, candlesticks, mirrors: elegance and romantic emotions pervade.
Every detail evokes the luxury of the Baroque period, but only the most modern comforts are available to the guests: air conditioning, TV, DVD player, safe, mini-bar and kettle with a selection of traditional and herbal teas.
A Nespresso coffee machine is available in the common rooms for relaxation breaks.
Deluxe Double Room:
The unmatched elegance of these bedrooms welcomes the guests from the first moment, transporting them into a special place composed of art, beauty, past and present, light and poetry.
This makes the experience of the "Florentine spirit" unique and genuine. Frescoes, statues, gold and colours, mirrors and crystals...
Comfort and charm unite to create a harmonious experience: hydro massage bathtub, exquisitely comfortable bed, a pull out sofa bed for a third guest, trays with delicacies, satellite TV, DVD player, mini bar with Chianti, luxuriously soft bathrobes, courtesy soaps perfumed with ebony and amber, and for coffee connoisseurs, a Nespresso machine in the room with a selection of delicious coffees.
Camera di Bacco e Arianna
It is not easy to describe the beauties of this spacious (45 sq m) and extraordinary Suite; from the magnificent ceiling fresco, a well-known work by the Baroque artist Nasini, to the transparent light and subtle gold tones of the whole room, and the large painted terracotta stove, all evidence of antique and aristocratic luxury. All of these elements impress and enchant on first sight. The colours on the ceiling are so vibrant they seem as if they were just painted and the faces of the female figures smile kindly and sweetly, ensuring that sleeping underneath them is a marvellous experience.
The poetry continues into the bathroom, which gives the impression of antique glories and gentle awakenings while having the latest shower hydro massage and Turkish bath.
Coffee connoisseurs will enjoy the Nespresso coffee maker, and a kettle with a selection of traditional and herbal teas is available for guests. Trays with fine china and crystals complete the table setting.
Satellite TV, DVD player, safe, air conditioning, luxuriously soft bathrobes, courtesy soaps perfumed with ebony and amber and an exquisitely comfortable bed all enrich this unique Suite. A comfortable pull out sofa bed can easily accommodate a third guest.
Suite Luxury Gold:
This marvellous and extremely spacious Suite ( 140 sq m) is named after its exquisite living room, the "Salotto D'Oro", "Golden Living Room", dating from the 1700's. Illuminated with gold and yellow colours, the Suite is entirely decorated with frescoes, a pink marble fireplace, fine china, crystals and mirrors.
It is difficult to describe the sensation that envelopes guests as soon as they step into this magical place; an area situated in the most private part of the Palazzo, destined for pleasures and luxuries. The very large and opulent bedroom testifies to this vocation: all of the senses are involved in the pure white of the fabrics, the gold of the mirrors, and the frescoes which accompany a deep and peaceful sleep.
Guests can relax in the double hydro massage tub, a modern feature which is greatly appreciated, especially in such an antique framework. Another surprise for guests is the "Cariatidi Alcove", a private and personal area decorated in the "Venetian" style with its large red and gold velvet bed.
Only the most modern conveniences are available: air conditioning, satellite TV, DVD player, safe, mini-bar, luxuriously soft bathrobes, courtesy soaps perfumed with ebony and amber, an electric kettle with a choice of traditional and herbal teas as well as a Nespresso coffee machine.
