An aristocratic mansion set in a magnificent private garden, Ad Astra offers 16 beautiful rooms filled with antiques, up-cycled retro pieces and quirky design touches.

High ceilings, plaster mouldings and frescoes, chandeliers, a wrap-around terrace for breakfasts and aperitivi combine with the atmosphere of an elegant private home to make one of Florence’s most captivating hotels.

It is located on a quiet street in the Oltrarno, south of the river, and mere steps from the buzzy nightlife, independent boutiques, artisan workshops and many small restaurants and bars that characterise this intriguing neighbourhood. The Ponte Vecchio is a 10-minute walk away.

Surrounding area

The Oltrarno is a mix of quiet residential streets and small squares and busier thoroughfares. Here, elegant mansions rub shoulders with more modest apartment buildings, antique shops stand shoulder-to-shoulder with artisan studios and neighbourhood grocery stores, traditional trattorias cohabit with hip restaurants and aperitivo spots.

The entrance to the hotel is off a quiet, unassuming street, but it overlooks the largest privately-owned garden within the old city walls. Traffic noise is not a problem.
