IL Tornabuoni, Florence’s newest five-star independent luxury hotel has opened in the heart of the Italian Renaissance city. Located along Via Tornabuoni in the historic XII century Palazzo Minerbetti, the elegant and stylish property features 62 rooms and suites in the heart of Florence.
AG Group’s newest five-star luxury lifestyle hotel signifies the debut of The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand in Italy, known for its independent, one-of-a-kind hotels, and marks the first Hyatt hotel in Tuscany.
The historic building of IL Tornabuoni, one of the most prestigious in Via Tornabuoni, dates back to the XII Century and spans over six floors, one destined for retail and five dedicated to the luxury lifestyle hotel.
The restored Palazzo Minerbetti has retained much of its Florentine heritage with state-of-the-art avant-garde interiors and the property’s opulent look and feel perfectly blends historic prestige with modern-day beauty.
Each of the hotel’s five floors offers a distinct colour scheme as a nod to the Renaissance period, embodying the city’s rich history and artistic magnificence by incorporating distinct regal and bold gem colours including vibrant teals, deep blues, sunny yellows, energetic vermillion and soft greys. The wallpaper was custom designed and lush fabrics including silk, rich velvet and wool were used for the furnishings.
Most rooms and suites provide two double beds for guests, a rarity found in much of Italy and Europe, along with grandiose bathrooms which recall the lavishness of ancient spas. Many rooms and suites offer stunning views of some of the city’s most famous sites including the Duomo’s famous Cupola del Brunelleschi and Giotto Bell Tower, the façade of the Church of Santa Maria Novella, the Church of San Frediano in Cestello and the splendid panorama of Villa Bardini in the Bardini Gardens, to name a few.
Owned by AG Group, IL Tornabuoni is part of the AG Hotels collection, a portfolio created in 2011 which includes eleven five-star and four-star boutique hotels in Florence and Rome.
