Inside, Francesca has beautifully decorated the bedrooms and communal spaces with tasteful mid-century furniture, incorporating classic pieces and vintage finds. Skilful retro touches mixed with military chic memorabilia combine to create an original atmosphere celebrating the industrial heritage of the area , and it’s exciting new future as a stylish home for cycling and design lovers visiting Florence. A personalised experience for each guest.
La Fonderia offers a ’rooms with breakfast’ concept – an experience somewhere between home stay (you will be warmly welcome by Francesca and Dina) and a boutique design hotel (the rooms are beautiful – a mid-Century aesthetic against Sandro’s minimalist backdrop) with the particular difference of a large, well equipped light repairs workshop on the ground floor and spacious secure rack storage for cycles. (Plus local expert guides).
The location, on the south bank of the Arno river, just beside the ancient San Frediano gate, is about ten minutes walk or a few minutes cycle, from the main Santa Maria Novella train station. From here, it’s the perfect quiet place to explore Florence on foot or on bike.
