A 19th-century palazzo in a posh Florence neighborhood, stuffed full of antiques and Renaissance artwork
Housed in a 19th-century palazzo, Hotel Regency is a beautiful marriage of Old World elegance and contemporary convenience. Stuffed full of original Second Empire furnishings and gilded Renaissance artwork good enough to merit museum status, it feels more like a private estate than a hotel. The public areas are a kaleidoscope of styles, colors and patterns. Think rose-colored walls, antique paintings, crème couches, patterned carpeting — and an antique piano forte thrown in for good measure.
Bed and Bath
The 32 guestrooms and nine suites all feature individually selected antique Italian furnishings, rich tapestries, upholstered headboards and silk drapes in a Tuscan color scheme. The bathrooms are equally opulent, with Carrara marble floors, heated towel racks, his and hers sinks and luxe products from 155 Via Veneto.
The Regency is located in a residential neighborhood of leafy sidewalks and posh parks, just a 15-minute walk from Florence’s historic heart. Take a stroll around the private gardens, or view them through the windows of the aptly named Relais le Jardin, a house restaurant that serves delightfully fresh Tuscan dishes. The grand old hotel is also within walking distance of the Santa Croce church and the acclaimed Accademia museum, and the green respite of Piazza Massimo d’Azeglio is across the street.
