Hotel Lungarno reopens after six-month renovation

Italy: Hotel Lungarno, in Florence has welcomed its first guests after closing for six months for a major renovation.

The hotel, part of the Ferragamo family-owned Lungarno Collection, has been remodelled by interior designer Michele Bonan, who has designed all Lungarno Collection properties. Hotel Lungarno now features 64 guest rooms, including 10 new family rooms and suites, a new lobby lounge and a renewed emphasis on culinary and art programming reflective of the destination. Hotel Lungarno was the first hotel designed by Michele Bonan, and this renovation project reflects his passion for this ‘Grand Dame’ hotel and its significance to the city of Florence. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the legendary hotel, having opened as a boutique luxury hotel in 1967, and eventually becoming Lungarno Collection’s flagship hotel in 1995.

“We are delighted to welcome guests back to the iconic Hotel Lungarno,” said Valeriano Antonioli, CEO of Lungarno Collection. “This year marks 50 years that this building has served as a luxury hotel for Florence travellers, and 22 years since unveiling Hotel Lungarno as the first hotel from Lungarno Collection. Mixing Michele Bonan’s style and design with Hotel Lungarno’s history of true Italian hospitality, this next chapter will be even more successful than the last.”
