A place to see and where to be seen.
The contemporary Gallery Hotel Art is a 4 star design and boutique hotel in Florence dreamed up by Michele Bönan, a refined Florentine architect, and offers a favorite local meeting place in the heart of Florence amongst fashion, art, and stylish people.
Set in a quiet courtyard near the Arno and Ponte Vecchio and close to Palazzo Strozzi, you may experience art and photography vernissages, enjoy a few quite moments in the inviting lounge-library, or indulge in culinary Eastern delights at the Fusion Bar & Restaurant.
The Gallery Hotel Art is bursting with so much creativity it has exploded outside. The hotel façade in Vicolo dell’Oro is bedecked with a changing exhibit of contemporary art, focused on a different theme each year. Come and marvel at our big, brave and bold installations.
It was a personal challenge to create Italy's first design hotel. I wanted to develop more than just a stylish hotel but a contemporary meeting place that always had a buzz about it.
