Hotel L'Orologio Florence



Orologio means 'watch' in Italian so it will come as no surprise that the theme at this luxury boutique hotel is watches and is inspired by the international Haute Horlogerie, in particular vintage watches. Hotel L'Orologio Florence is in Piazza Santa Maria Novella, one of the prettiest squares in Florence and just a short walk from the famous Duomo, Bapistry and San Lorenzo market. Architect Marianna Gagliardi has overseen the interior design of this luxury hotel and sister boutique hotel Santa Maria Novella which is just a few steps away. Masculine materials and colours have been used here and the use of leather, dark wood, parchment paper and brass has resulted in a warm, smoky and sensory experience, perfect for cosy winter evenings.


A stay in Florence can be filled with visits to museums and galleries and during the summer it is lovely to take a walk to the Boboli Gardens a park home to a collection of sculptures dating from the 16th to the 18th-century and dotted with Roman antiquities. There is no better way to explore and experience the flavour of Florence than by foot when you can feel like a local wandering the streets, exploring the markets and stopping for a glass of Tuscan wine. Day trips, wine tastings, hot air ballooning and guided tours can all be arranged. For a little retail therapy why not pop into the hotel's own boutique where you can find beautiful leather products, scented candles and beautiful hand-painted quartz watches.


Hotel L'Orologio Florence has a beautiful bar called L'O, which is entirely covered in parchment. It features a large mahogany desk and a large pool of water lit by natural light. Smokers have their own room with a stunning illuminated floor. Some of the best restaurants in Florence (for relaxed and fine dining) are within a short walk of Hotel Orologio including L'Osteria di Giovanni, an informal restaurant with creative, Tuscan food. Expect pear and ricotta tortelli, chickpea soup and traditional coccoli (Florentine salted fritters). Restaurant Il Fiesolano serves some of the best bistecca fiorentina (served with flair on a wooden board) and porcini mushrooms, and is filled with loyal Florentines which is always a good sign. Do order a bottle of the house wine Il Re delle Carni, a Chianti Classico, as it compliments the delicious Tuscan dishes on the menu.
