Staff at the swanky Hotel Continentiale in the heart of Florence called the cops after the woman asked for help.
Medics rushed her to Careggi hospital where she’s said to be in a serious but stable condition, according to the Daily Mail.

The source said cops were also assess whether this was a case of domestic abuse, though the “general direction is that of an erotic game”.
They said: “The man was found with a series of cuts, bruises and other injuries on his body and so was the woman, although she was more seriously hurt and the man appears to have had some sort of seizure.
“There is blood in the room and the forensic teams are working there at the moment while the woman has been taken to hospital for treatment.
“Her current condition is serious but she is stable and her injuries are not life-threatening. We hope to question her at some point in the next few hours.”

Italian outlet Firenze Today claims staff found the woman covered in blood wondering the hotel hallway seeking help.
La Reppublica claims the woman told staff she saw the 41-year-old collapse to the ground.
It’s believed the man may have died from a heart attack, according to La Nazione.
The outlet also reported that 118 health professionals were present at the hotel.
They had arrived at the Continentale in vicolo dell’Oro – which a holiday guide revealed costs £350 a night to stay in – at around 2am in the morning.
It has a rooftop bar and spa and is the spot for “honeymooners and those looking for a romantic weekend”.
A source said: “The woman had raised the alarm after a chambermaid knocked on the door but some of the guests had already called reception to report shouting and banging coming from the room.”
