Hotel La Gemma is set to be Florence’s most talked about hotel opening in Spring 2023. This striking boutique property is located just moments from the famous Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore and Piazza della Repubblica.

Set within a stunning 18th-century palazzo, this stylish new 5* hotel will include a rather cool 1st-floor gourmet restaurant and a tranquil private spa located in the historic cellars of the palace. Most significantly, the striking interior design concept of this impressive new project looks set to attract guests who truly appreciate the art of contemporary design.

The interiors have been created to pay homage to the city’s stunning Cathedral, with the hotel’s eye-catching aesthetic drawing inspiration from the ’Duomo’s’ distinct colours and sculptural design elements. Hotel La Gemma’s interior reflects the beauty of the famous cathedral with a palette of vibrant greens, powder pinks, and gentle ivories alongside bold geometric patterns, opulent marbles, sumptuous textiles, and bespoke furnishings.

Rooms and suites give off an air of relaxed luxury which effortlessly exude old-school glamour. References to the Art-Deco era can be noted in the handcrafted king-size beds finished in muted shades of green and pink velvets, while a silk feature wall adds warmth and interest to the space. Ornate circular bedside tables provide a sense of contemporary opulence, while recessed backlit shelves add character and charm to the rooms.

Rooms are impeccably presented and finished with vibrant textiles, Italian bed linens, and bathrobes by Rivolta Carmignani. Marble bathrooms are furnished by Devon & Devon with ceramics by Gio Ponti. Complimentary products are by Votary whose Rosemary & Chia series is both elegant and naturally perfumed.
