Hotel Lungarno, Florence

Bursting with classical elegance and works of art; Hotel Lungarno is Florence in a hotel. Perched over the glistening waters of the Arno River, its chic design is reminiscent of a classic boat floating down the river, with the Ponte Vecchio providing an iconic backdrop. The 65 luxurious guest rooms and suites are a window onto the city with sweeping views, encompassing everything from the River below to Brunelleschi’s famous dome standing out amongst the skyline. A picture-perfect hotel in a picture-perfect city; be prepared to fall in love with Florence.


Hotel Lungarno easily has the most enviable address in Florence. It is the only hotel to literally sit on the banks of the River Arno with a graceful reception room that seems to float just so over its shimmering waters. Steps away from the Ponte Vecchio, the wonders of Florence are quite literally on your doorstep. From the flagship Ferragamo boutique to the awe-inspiring Duomo and the masterpieces of the Uffizi, Florence is yours to explore. Thirty minutes from the airport and the Tuscan countryside; you’ll be strolling those cobbled streets with a gelato in no time.

Your Room

Classic Italian elegance is given a contemporary twist in the 65 rooms and suites at Hotel Lungarno. Bathed in natural light, soft tones create that romantic atmosphere Italy is so famous for, whilst splashes of colour introduce a more playful side. The walls are adorned with works of art from the likes of Picasso and Cocteau whilst windows and private terraces look out over the river and the city. We particularly loved the Rooftop Terrace Suite with its panoramic views over Florence.

Why we like it

Without a doubt, one of our favourite things about travelling to Italy is the food – and dining at Hotel Lungarno never disappoints. From gourmet cuisine in the Michelin-starred Borgo San Jacopo to an apertivo over the river at Picteau Cocktail Bar, your taste buds will never be disappointed here.


The Lungarno Collection has collaborated with Clean The World to recycle unused soaps, encouraging other hospitality establishments to get involved in the programme. The collected shampoos and soaps are distributed to those around the world who do not have access to basic hygiene supplies. The group also takes on a plastic-free approach, replacing single-use plastics with biodegradable alternatives.
