"Another Ferragamo designer hotel, great position, zen-like Japanese feel, though no views"

Gallery Hotel Art

Japanese minimalism may sound odd in the middle of medieval Florence, but in these cramped Florentine town palazzos it works extremely well. The idea in this hotel is to have a constantly changing art exhibition on the ground floor, a library of art books, and fusion cooking (thai/Japanese), with minimalist décor in beige and cream colour tones, using grey stone and dark wood. The elevators and corridors are tiny, which helps the rooms themselves feel generous, cool havens from the heat of the street outside. Floors are of dark stained African wood, bedheads of Florentine leather, doors thick and chunky and painted in cream. The art theme continues, with monochrome prints of architectural detail on the walls. You feel that if Brunelleschi had been a hotel designer, and alive today, this is what he would have come up with, as the grey and cream remind you of the Pazzi Chapel. Bathrooms are cool and modern, with free standing sinks (two in the deluxe rooms). At the top of the hotel, the penthouse has a terrace where you can sleep out at night under the stars - now that is what we call romantic. There are also several duplexes and ten junior suites with little sitting areas. The hotel is perfectly positioned, a few steps from the Piazza Republica on one side and the Ponte Vecchio on the other, and just far enough off the main drag to make it relatively quiet at night. Open just two years, the Gallery Art is owned by Ferragamo.
