History & Philosophy

The Italian hotel group Starhotels was founded in 1980 by Ferruccio Fabri. Originally based in Florence, the Starhotels luxury hotel chain has expanded over the years throughout Italy as well as New York, Paris and London. Today, the family owns 29 four and five star hotels, welcoming everyone from leisure to business travellers. 

Starhotels aims to share “la dolce vita”, as you would say in Italy.  Owner Ferruccio Fabri has always been inspired by the Italian hospitality, family values, and cosmopolitan style. And it is these principles that have come to define the independent hotel group. Each property shares the core values and remains dedicated to providing genuine, personal services that will surprise and delight the guests. Wherever you travel, you can depend on Italian style, warmth and hospitality.

Over the past decade, the hotel group has been run by Ferruccio’s daughter Elisabetta Fabri. The family spirit and sustainable values have been passed on to the next generation and continue to guide the provided service, the served food and the extended thoughtful little touches. 

Starhotels E.c.ho. is the first ecological hotel of the group that brings eco-chic to Italy’s fashion capital. The hotel is the best example of the group's effort to reduce its environmental impact and provide guests with an unforgettable and natural experience of eco-responsibility.
