About Us

Fornace Suite – a small gem in the heart of Florence in an ambiance of contemporary elegance.

In an early-19th century edifice at the foot of Piazzale Michelangelo, Fornace Suite awaits, ready to immerse you in Florentine life in exclusive, elegant style. A small oasis, it has only six fully customized suites, each embodying part of Italian art history. Our six suites are named Donatello, Cellini, Bernini, Canova, Michelangelo, 
and Ghiberti. Featuring contemporary interior design, our suites are furnished with the utmost care for detail. Soon, an elegant spa will be available where guests can relax completely. The Florentine firm Archea Associati designed all furnishings, crafting custom-made interiors for each room, endowing each suite with vivid contrasts or soft tone-on-tone colors. Each apartment features fine contemporary works by Italian and international artists. Paintings, sculptures, and installations throughout Fornace Suite make for the contemporary atmosphere of a genuine boutique hotel. Fornace Suite makes the perfect home base for exploring Florence. Though it’s a stone’s throw from Ponte Vecchio, you can drive straight here, where you will be welcomed in style by our highly qualified staff, including a valet ready to respond to your every wish. A dream within a dream.
