BERNINI PALACE HOTEL

Hosted in a XV century building, the Bernini Palace hotel stands at the very heart of Florence, behind Piazza della Signoria and the Uffizi Gallery, just a stone’s throw from Palazzo Vecchio, the Michelangelo’s statue of David and the Porcellino market. It was the first building in Florence to be equipped with running water and a stable. The hotel boasts the presence of two Concierges, belonging to the international association Les Clefs d’Or, who are ready to fulfil all the wishes of its guests. Formerly known as Hotel Parlamento, the Bernini Palace was the home and meeting place for many MPs of the time. There, the MPs continued their discussions after they went out of the Palazzo Vecchio or the Uffizi palace, which hosted the House of Deputies and the Senate of the old Kingdom of Italy.

The large hall at the first floor now known as Sala delle Colazioni (‘Breakfast Hall’) was once called Buvette del Parlamento (Parliament’s Buvette). It is open to everyone, not just to the hotel guests. Its buffet offers a wide selection of homemade, organic and natural food, as well as baked products, and there is a dedicated area with gluten-free products. The Parliament hall is also available for private parties, special events and weddings. The Bernini Palace offers 74 rooms (20 Classic Double; 20 Superior Double; 24 Deluxe Double and Deluxe Tuscan; 8 Junior Suite and Tuscan Junior Suite; 2 Suites). They are all equipped with modern comforts, such as soft linen sheets, exclusive Simmons’ mattresses, anti-allergy duvets and soft, cotton satin duvet covers.

The first floor is furnished in a picturesque Tuscan style, combining Renaissance and Oriental styles, with terracotta tile floors, warm-toned furnishings and textiles (red, amaranth, orange, gold), antique arrases, precious curtains and tapestries. All of them are unique pieces, which are in tone with the beamed ceilings and four-poster beds. All rooms overlook the inner yards, alleys and paths of Medieval Florence.

The recently restored hotel’s restaurant La Chiostrina is located near the lobby, under a XVI century colonnade at the ground floor. Perfect for dinners, business meetings and light lunches, it is the right place to taste Tuscan typical cuisine and different kinds of dishes, thanks to a menu that changes according to the seasons.

The Lounge Bar is an ideal haunt to drink a toast or arrange a romantic rendezvous. A professional barista and sommelier will serve you a wide range of cocktails and long drinks, including the Negroni, which was created in Florence by Count Camillo Negroni in 1919, and the Golden Martini, enriched with gold powder. At aperitif time, the drinks are paired with a selection of finger foods and cheeses. Open to the public from 10,30 a.m. till late night, the Lounge Bar is also an ideal location for gourmet after-dinner drinks, with a whiskey selection that includes about 50 fine blends. 

The Garden Terrace is located on Bernini’s rooftop. Surrounded by the history of Florence, it overlooks the Palazzo Vecchio and is equipped with gazebos, pavilions and a solarium, as well as a call bar service. Perfect for enjoying a meeting, a cocktail, an aperitif or, why not, a refreshing bath in the four-place Jacuzzi, which makes the terrace even more exclusive.
