We strongly recommend the spectacular, modern yet timeless panoramic Consorti suite. Falling in love with Florence is natural, and the contemporary setting of the Consorti suite at the top of the medieval Consorti tower makes it happen. The uninterrupted views of River Arno and Ponte Vecchio make waking up an exciting part of your fun-filled day. For those who love sightseeing, the very popular spots around that you can explore during the day other than Ponte Vecchio are Piazza Della Signoria, Gallerie Degli Uffizi and Florence cathedral. Meanwhile, there’s no refuting that what you see inside the panoramic Consorti suite is also a sight to behold. The use of white all around contributes an ethereal milieu to this 46 sqm suite. So much so, the pared-down look and predominance of white on blond wood gives a profuse sense of space. The marvelous first level of the Panoramic Consorti Suite is especially captivating with its beautiful spacing. It possesses the most romantic setting, a canopied bed with gauzy white curtains that give you your very own love nest. Guests can revel in king-size bathtub on the second floor in complete relaxation, whilst savoring stunning views of the Florence Cathedral. The Bi-level suite with a four-poster bed also allows guests to breathe in some fresh Florence air on the Small terraces where sunbeds are provided. To make the most of your leisurely bath time, bring in a good book while you immerse in the goodness of some delicious Ferragamo toiletries while humming to some playful jazz on the Bose Bluetooth sound system.


The medieval Consorti tower also houses the very buzzing and magnificent “La Terrazza”, one of the best places to meet and greet your loved ones for a Negroni.
