An important acknowledgement is due to Hotel Bernini Palace, situated in the main centre of Florence: on its sign has appeared the fifth star. This news has been welcomed with great enthusiasm by the staff, starting from the Director of the facility, Davide Foschi: “We are very proud of this prestigious acknowledgement”, he claimed, “A collective satisfaction because it is the result of the work of all our team. For me it is also a personal satisfaction because I have been part of story of our hotel for 28 years. Having earned the fifth star is the demonstration of the excellent work carried out even by the new proprietors, the Duetorrihotels group, who, in just three years, made possible a dream that all of us here at Bernini have had for a long time. This moment also marks a new departure point for us because we want to grow further.”

“We are very glad to see the value and the commitment of our group being recognised”, added Franco Vanetti, CEO of Duetorrihotels, “The passage to 5 start of the Bernini Palace Hotel is a fundamental step both for the placement of a building of such high value in the hotel panorama, as well as that in 2015, for the 150 years of Florence as Capital celebrations, the Bernini will represent at its best a unique reference point for this important event.”

The hotel is hosted in a historic 15th century Palazzo, and is found about 100m away from Piazza della Signoria and the Uffizi Museum. It was the first “hotel” of Florence, in the 17th century, to have running water and the service of a stable for its guests horses. Within its premises it has welcomed the “Parliament Refreshment room”, now Breakfast Hall, in which, the main actors of the Italian Risorgimento, above all Garibaldi and Cavour, met during the years of Florence as Capital (1865 – 1870).

Nowadays the building which has undergone various phases of restyling, offers a variety of 74 rooms and a famous restaurant, La Chiostrina, cut-out of a colonnaded 16th century Porch that has been recently restored. For meetings there are two equipped rooms, of 40 and 80 places each respectively, served by the restaurant and the “Il Parlamento” lounge where it is possible to organise highly atmospheric banquets and cocktails.
