Imagine a tiny, utterly stylish boutique hotel with four suites located in the heart of Florence, just a few steps away from the river Arno and the city centre.
The suites boast a contemporary, elegant and sumptuous look encased in animal prints, jungle-echoing fabrics and refined pieces of furniture.
The suites boast a contemporary, elegant and sumptuous look encased in animal prints, jungle-echoing fabrics and refined pieces of furniture. The family’s antique collection forms the heart of the luxurious interiors, with pieces dating from the 17th to 20th centuries, alongside timeless artworks.
Equipped with high-end amenities, the quaint suites feature different themes and a comfortable design bathroom, immaculately clean and with plants falling down the ceiling. Simply the quintessence of uniqueness. An unusual feeling of discovery distinguishes this jewel: the guests are surrounded by beauty, both inside and outside, and seduced by the flair of this wonderful place. But it feels like home just from the first step you jump in.
The Velona’s Jungle is the perfect example of harmony between the local and the international community. The guests are mainly from Europe, but also from Asia and America, with a large number of Italians: they all look for attention to details, kindness and professionalism. The hotel’s location and size are suited to this kind of hospitality. Veronica is a passionate host, who welcomes the guests in a friendly and warm atmosphere and is always happy to recommend them nearby restaurants, shops, markets and monuments, as an expert local guide, just to let discover the authentic Florentine way of life.

The guest house’s sustainability side reflects itself in many different aspects: the vegan courtesy set, the choice of recycling and being a plastic free accommodation. Moreover, you could not expect more from the gorgeous vegan friendly breakfast, served from 8 to 12 am and composed of locally-sourced and organic products: delicious jams, freshly-mixed muesli, juices and smoothies, vegan tarts, cakes and biscuits so that you are ready to start the day in the best way. Little details make the difference for an unforgettable experience.
In keeping with its sustainable ethos, the guests are encouraged to explore the city by bicycle or on foot, to breathe the ancient atmosphere in the streets or the fresh air on the hills of the countryside. Bikers are welcome in this charming hotel that offers free of charge special services to them. Particular care is also dedicated to your pets, from the bed and food provided in the room up to the additional assistance that may be needed, like grooming or dogsitting, arranged by the amazing staff of the hotel upon request.
Every traveler has a story and our story began in the majestic main city of Tuscany, in a historical building where Velona’s Jungle is magnificently and strategically positioned. It is here that the guests learn to take pleasure from the simple things, let go of unnecessary stress, and share time with family and friends by enjoying unforgettable moments. This rare gem is focused on one thing: you. All you need to do is pack your bags and come experience it for yourself…
