Building of great historical and architectural value, with interiors frescoed by the painter Federico Andreotti, its origin is rooted in Florentine Impressionism. Built between 1843 and 1855 as a residence and excellently positioned, very close to the Duomo of Florence, in 1920 it became a hotel. A careful renovation completed in 2015 brings it up to date by combining nineteenthcentury elements with contemporary design and comfort features.
