The atmosphere inside the hotel is ancient and evocative, from the impressive Parliament Hall recalling the glorious past of ancient Florence to the picturesque Tuscan style of the design, which perfectly merges with the modern style of the Lounge Bar and the lobby. Overlooking Palazzo Vecchio – at the center of Florentine as well as Italian art and history – and just a stone’s throw from the Arno river, the Bernini Palace is now one of the most exclusive lounges of the city. The Bernini Palace offers 74 rooms (20 Classic Double; 20 Superior Double; 24 Deluxe Double and Deluxe Tuscan; 8 Junior Suite and Tuscan Junior Suite; 2 Suites). They are all equipped with modern comforts, such as soft linen sheets, exclusive Simmons’ mattresses, anti-allergy duvets and soft, cotton satin duvet covers. The first floor is furnished in a picturesque Tuscan style, combining Renaissance and Oriental styles, with terracotta tile floors, warm-toned furnishings and textiles (red, amaranth, orange, gold), antique arrases, precious curtains and tapestries. The recently restored hotel’s restaurant La Chiostrina is located near the lobby, under a XVI century colonnade. Perfect for dinners, business meetings and light lunches, it is the right place to taste Tuscan typical cuisine and different kinds of dishes, thanks to a menu that changes according to the seasons. The Lounge Bar is an ideal haunt to drink a toast or arrange a romantic rendezvous. A professional barista and sommelier will serve you a wide range of cocktails and long drinks, including the Negroni, which was created in Florence by Count Camillo Negroni in 1919, and the Golden Martini, enriched with gold powder. The large hall at the first floor now known as Sala delle Colazioni (Breakfast Hall) was once called Buvette del Parlamento (Parliament’s Buvette). Its buffet offers a wide selection of homemade, organic and natural food, as well as baked products, and there is a dedicated area with gluten-free products. The Parliament hall is also available for private parties, special events, and weddings. The Garden Terrace is located on Bernini’s rooftop. Surrounded by the history of Florence, it overlooks the Palazzo Vecchio and is equipped with gazebos, pavilions and a solarium, as well as a call bar service. Perfect for enjoying a meeting, a cocktail, an aperitif or, why not, a refreshing bath in the four-place Jacuzzi, which makes the terrace even more exclusive.
