Ferragamo-owned hotel, with luxe-level service and the most enviable location in the city, on the banks of the Arno

The Lowdown

Ferragamo means shoes, but in Italy it also means hotels—the family owns a handful of luxury spots that are as covetable as their stilettos. A refurbishment in 2017 means everything at the Lungarno is shiny and bright, but the navel theme designed by Michele Bonan sticks to blues and whites and dark wood paneling, which creates the impression that you’re sailing down the Arno on a (fabulously chic) boat. Its riverside perch means not only proximity to the top sightseeing spots and unbeatable views, but fresh air in a city that’s got more than its fair share of smog. Rooms are smart and kitted out with espresso makers and Bose speakers, but you might end up spending more time in the public areas, either checking out the museum-worthy art collection, having a “Venice mule” cocktail at the riverfront Picteau bar, or diving into the 900-strong wine collection and a plate of risotto or wild boar at the Michelin-starred Borgo San Jacopo restaurant.

In the Area

Practically on top of the River Arno, and just a minute from the Ponte Vecchio bridge, the Lungarno might be the best-located hotel in the entire city. Florence is easily walkable, so making this your base means you can stroll over to the Duomo in ten minutes and the Uffizi Gallery in two. The Boboli public gardens, with their manicured lawns, fountains, and sculpture collection, are a 15-minute walk. The concierge service at the hotel is second-to-none: ask for tips on where to go and what to eat—the hotel can usually get guests exclusive access and hard-to-get reservations.

The only negative aspect of this Hotel (Ferragamo Collection) is the fact that the Hotel just offers a Michelin star Restaurant for diner.Alternatively you can have your dinner in the Lounge,but the offer is very limited!We had to eat outside most of the time.Check-in was perfect.Very professionnel Team.All these guys are very kind,polite and helpfull.Congratulations to all.Perfect Service.The best view on Arno and the Ponte Vecchio from the bar,the outside terrace as well as from our Deluxe Double River View with Balcony!The room was clean,not very large but ok.The marble bathroom was quite small!!with a shower in bathtube .VERY BASIC for the rate they apply.(885euro)The Garage is just beside the Hotel.Perfect Location but not easy to Access.Fortunately a member of the hotel staff did come to our rescue when we were lost 300m away!Greetings to that tough Indian guy!Breakfast ok but not worse a 5 star.

the Hotel Lungarno was amazing overall. The service was great from the moment we walked in and extremely quick. The two bedroom family room we booked was elegant and it was child friendly. The hotel was walking distance from the Ponte Vecchio and lots of fabulous restaurants ,Gelateria's and many shops and markets.

Outstanding 5 star experience
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

When it come to 5 star hotels this place delivers! Location cannot be beaten. Decor and details are outstanding, classy and elegant. Beautifully appointed rooms and suites, every detail is perfect. The Picteau Bar and lounge is beautiful and the cocktails amazing. But the real detail that makes this place superb is the staff. They are amazing. From the wonderful lady cleaning who made up our room morning and evening to the outstanding concierge (the lady with the short hair- I cannot remember her name but she is so professional and friendly- she actually asked how our meal had been when we met her on her way home!). The bar staff and the breakfast waiters/waitresses, and The lovely welcome on arrival from Imran. I cannot praise this hotel highly enough and it’s wonderful staff. It is the bar to which all luxury hotels should aspire to. Thanks to all. Stay here...You will not be disappointed!

The Hotel Lungarno lived up to its reputation for us. The family suite we booked was perfect and we were upgraded to a beautiful room overlooking the Ponte Vecchio. The staff was so kind and helpful. The breakfast was delicious, abundant, and a peaceful way to start the day. Views for days and walkable to everything.
