Hotel Astro Mediceo is in Florence in Via Fra' Bartolommeo, 56, a few steps far from the central Piazza della Libertà, in the elegant avenue district, only a fifteen minute walk from the historical center of Florence. From the Hotel you can easily reach the train station Firenze Campo di Marte and the Football Stadium Artemio Franchi.
The Hotel is served very well by public transport and with a short walk you can arrive at the Galleria dell'Accademia that conserve the Michelangelo's David and the architectural complex formed by the majestic Duomo, the Battistero and the Campanile di Giotto.
The hotel fits into an historical context. It is close to the Porta San Gallo that was a part of the ancient walls of Florence and the Arco di Trionfo that celebrates the Lorena's dynasty.
The building, formerly called Villino Ortigia, was built in the second half of the eighteenth century and preserves the typical architectural details of the Florence's lord houses. Right in 2015 the building has been restored to make it modern and functional, although the elegant characteristics of the ancient palace have been maintained.
The Hotel presents the passage through the centuries: eighteenth (the time when it was built) and nineteenth, given by the furniture revisited in a modern key.
In the reception you can admire a long and elegant glass table and impressive falling chandeliers that will accompany you on the staircase up tho the upper floors.
Moreover, there is an elegant reading room with a rich library that leads to the breakfast room through a bright passage with contemporary glass chandeliers.
Astro Mediceo encloses the neoclassical style of a Florence's building and the deigno of a contemporary hotel.
These are just some of the many beauties and attractions that guests can visit during their stay.
