Eclectic Art-Inspired Design

Originally built in the 19th century and located in the heart of the popular Tuscany region, Anglo American Hotel Florence, Curio Collection by Hilton is now open following an intensive renovation project curated by Italian architect Chiara Caberlon, after the acquisition in 2021 by the Fund Star II. Fund Star II is an alternative real estate investment fund reserved for professional investors and managed by Castello sgr, an Italian company specialising in the promotion and management of alternative investment products with a specific focus on real estate. With a focus on preserving key historical features while introducing a modern and elegant design, the newly opened hotel features guest rooms with a distinctive palette made of rich, vibrant colours to create an eclectic, unconventional atmosphere. Celebrating artwork from the 1920s, intriguing details and furnishings can be found throughout the hotel. Catering to a variety of guest needs, the hotel also features a modern gym as well as two meeting rooms able to accommodate up to 70 people.

Whisper Wine Bar and Courtyard

Playing jazz and soul music, Whisper Wine Bar and Courtyard was the cultural salon where the British ladies’ community “Scorpions” used to meet during the 1930s and gossip on Florentine life with biting criticism. This community of British women expatriates served as the muse for the film Tea with Mussolini. Whisper sits at the centre of the hotel serving a plethora of drinks including signature cocktails and Tuscan wines. The open-air courtyard houses a serene inner garden encouraging visitors to bask in the Tuscan sun or take cover in the shade under one of the many parasols. The multi-purpose space seamlessly transforms to a venue capable of hosting a diverse range of gatherings, from thoughtfully curated events on literature, poetry and art exhibitions to vibrate live music and performances.

Vivi Bistro

Offering local and international cuisine using local and seasonal ingredients, Vivi Bistro serves a morning buffet breakfast offering, lunch and dinner. The restaurant’s soft colour palette and refined design is the perfect location to enjoy a curated selection of charcuterie and cheeses, Italian pasta and traditional local desserts.
