Enjoy spectacular city views on our Rooftop Pool Bar & Terrace

Florence at your feet

Our scenic rooftop terrace and pool-bar are located on the sixth floor, but they are truly “seventh heaven!” The terrace is open all year round. The pool is heated to 28°C (83 F°) and is open from April to October. The pool-bar is open from May to October.

A lovely scenic terrace from which to enjoy one of the most beautiful views in the world — the façade of the Church of Santa Maria Novella, the Duomo, Giotto’s bell tower and the Palazzo Vecchio are spread out before you in this sweeping view sure to take your breath away.

To make sure you have peace and quiet, the use of our  swimming pool with Jacuzzi is reserved - from 9am to 7pm - for hotel guests only. Pool size: length: 11 m / 36 ft; width: 4.5 m / 15ft; depth: 1.3 m / 40 ft. Considering its location on the rooftop, please expect limited space around the pool. 

At the pool bar, enjoy some snacks, refreshing drinks, ice cream, salads, fruit or vegetable smoothies, and cold dishes. 

At 7:30 pm, hotel guests and the locals can mingle on our rooftop terrace for an Italian-style happy hour or to enjoy a romantic sunset while sipping a glass of Prosecco or one of our bartender’s specialties. 

From 7 pm until midnight, anyone wishing to have an area for their exclusive use can reserve our Private Sky Lounge just above the pool. Enjoy excellent drinks while admiring an amazing view from all sides.
