Our Story

The Starhotels story began in 1980 with our founder Ferruccio Fabri. From day one, he was inspired by our nation’s culture of Italian hospitality, family values, and cosmopolitan style. And it’s these principles that have come to define our four and five star hotel group.

From our base in Florence, the Starhotels luxury hotel chain has grown to span Italy and we’ve established world-class properties in Paris and New York. As we have broken new ground, the leadership of the group has passed from one generation to another. And, over the past decade, we have been led by Mr Fabri’s daughter, Elisabetta Fabri. 

Today, we own and run 22 four and five star hotels, welcoming everyone from leisure travellers and brides-to-be to corporate delegates and business leaders. But, as an independent group, each of our hotels remains dedicated to providing a genuine, personal service. We know that, by keeping our family values close to our heart, our guests will always receive the kind of welcome and professional service that will surprise and delight. And that, in essence, is what we believe makes authentic, Italian hospitality so special.
