We stayed 2 nights in a top floor deluxe suite. The suite is huge by any standards and has everything you could need. The rooftop terrace has a bar and you can dine there with a few hours' notice. The meals are based on the extensive room service menu. If it gets a bit chilly, you can finish the meal in your suite if you wish. We dined this way both nights and it was a lovely experience, with views over Florence in all directions. Breakfast is in a large salon on the second floor and there is an excellent selection of fruit, breads, pastries, cereals, cheese, meat and cooked food.
The hotel is just south of the Arno, but only a 10 minute slow stroll to the Uffizi or the Pitti palace, so everything is very convenient, but you come back to a quiet area after sightseeing. We came by car and parked in the hotel garage which is just before the hotel on the narrow one-way street which leads to the hotel from the West. If, like us, you miss the garage just turn right at the traffic lights immediately after the hotel door and then take three further right turns to go round the back of the hotel and repeat the approach.
This is a high quality, very well run hotel which seems to me to provide everything you could need for a beautiful, comfortable stay in this lovely, overwhelmingly cultured city; and where the hotel itself adds considerably to the enjoyment of the experience of seeing the some of the world's greatest art treasures. However, what makes it particularly special is the way in which you are looked after by the excellent, friendly staff who are all such superb ambassadors for the hotel and the city. Highly recommended.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Palazzo Magnani Feroni is an historical home that for over five hundred years has been at the centre of Florence's aristocratic life: one of the oldest dwellings in the San Frediano neighbourhood, it has stood as an important symbol of the city's history and its artistic value. The class of this elegant renaissance palace, evident upon entering, finds its maximum expression in the sumptuous suites and the luxurious hospitality quarters, furnished with candelabra, statues, paintings and frescoes form the '500. Each suite reflects the refinement of the Renaissance style, with the subtle combination of comfort and modern technology and decorated with tasteful antique furnishings and materials originating from the owners' ancestors' antique collection. Spanning between 80- and 120-square meters (860- and 1300- square feet) in size, the 13 suites each comprise a large living room, bedroom(s) and master bathroom(s). Each includes all amenities expected of a five-star luxury hotel, including stereo, satellite television in both the living room and bedroom, internet port and self-regulating air conditioning units. An architectural jewel of the 16th century, the Palazzo Magnani Feroni belongs to the National Register of Historical Monuments of the State of Italy. Detail and ornamentation characterises the building throughout, surprising the wanderer with frescoes, vaulted ceilings and intricate wood-carvings. The Renaissance decor prevails in this palace of traditional Florentine lay-out. Breakfast, for instance, is served in a 160-square meter salon with hand-crafted wood ceilings illuminated by a large original Murano chandelier. In the winter evenings, this salon serves as an intimate, candle-lit Bar, accessible to Palazzo guests and their friends only. The same rules are applicable to the adjoining Billiard Room, as well as to the In-House Gym, so as to assure the guests with absolute privacy. The beautiful Roof-Top Terrace offers a breathtaking view of the city and houses the Palazzo Bar as soon as the temperature permits. Providing 24-hour Reception and Service, the Palazzo Magnani Feroni is run by a staff dedicated to meet your every need with efficiency and discretion, both prior, during and following your stay. Services include reservations to exclusive restaurants, recommendations of typical local eateries and trattorias, coordination of privileged entrance to the city's museums, airport / train station pick-up, private shopping tours, visits to the Ferrari Museum and private, chauffeured excursions to the beautiful Chianti valley.
