The creative brains behind the impossibly stylish SoprArno Suites made an extraordinary, 10-suite urban sanctuary near the Ponte Vecchio in Florence.
The team behind the SoprArno Suites included an architect, a furniture-obsessed lawyer, an artisan carpenter, and a graphic designer.
Their collaboration resulted in unique spaces decked out with distressed stripped floorboards, unique modern art pieces, and ornately painted ceilings.
Each of the 10 guestrooms has been individually designed with stylish furniture, quirky artwork, and indulgent, deep freestanding baths. Original frescoes and gold leaf-covered tables add a splash of Italian opulence.
The rooms are so chic you’ll hesitate to venture past the door, but the design credentials aside, one of the main selling points of SoprArno Suites is the laid-back location of the hotel, across the river from the crowds and close to the Pitti Palace.
In the Area
The Boboli Gardens are a short stroll from the property. Laid out in the 15th and 16th centuries, they’re dotted with Renaissance statues and ornate fountains and serve as a good introduction to Italy’s formal gardens. Nearby is La Specola, an 18th-century natural history museum where you can admire fossilized skeletons and explore the botanical garden.
And just around the corner, the 15th-century Pitti Palace is a vast Renaissance palace that was once home to the Medici family and served as Napoleon’s power base. It’s now the largest museum complex in Florence.
