Don’t think that the hotel just threw “1874” in its name to sound cooler. It is the first impression will you get upon first glimpse of its façade. What was happening at that time? Italy was just unified as a country, Napoleon III was defeated, and Rome was taken back to Italy. Precise is Palazzo Castri 1874 in the heart of Florence to capture the complexity of the time.
Sophistication and fragrance never go out of style. At Palazzo Castri 1874, you can easily find both. Maroon, matcha, and ivory, the play with colours in the room is in itself a form of art. Harmonious was the collision between the minimalistic interior design with churchlike ceilings, wooden floor, and impressionistic artworks on the wall.
The fragrance “Limonaia di Firenze” was designed by Florence’s own Dr. Vranjes just for Palazzo Castri 1874, and is available in the courtesy set in each room and suite. Also exclusive are the views outside your window that just cannot possibly fail you. “The Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, the La Limonaia interior garden, Piazza Indipendenza, Brunelleschi’s Dome or Giotto’s Tower?” Now that’s a question you should really ask yourself before booking your room.
Staying at Palazzo Castri 1874, you are entitled to hotel services such as a spa, a Finnish sauna, a small fitness lounge, and a 30 square-metre hydromassage pool that extends into the garden.
If you like waking up to the oven-baked smell of pastries, you are in much luck. At the Florentia Café, only pastries from the local bakeries as well as produce by Tuscan meat and cheese artisans will be served on your table.
