Reviewed 21 July 2012

We stayed for 5 nights at HB in Juy 2012. We were very happy with the location - close to the main square and on the right side of Florence. The hotel is a little more boutique than a brand name so that has both it's positives and negatives. Recent renovation means the hotel was well appointed with very good size rooms. Breakfast was good quality. We were disappointed with the expensive rates for wifi. My opinion is a boutique five star hotel should provide wifi as an additional bonus to their packages as an advantage to the main stream hotels. I also found the front desk staff to be unfriendly and lacked warmth (except one). We paid extra for a delux executive suite only to find out the hotel had contemplated this during the renovation, advertised accordingly but did not actually offer such a room after completion of the works. As such the hotel is yet to update its wholesellers (expediaetc) and this was not the hotel's issue - weak argument in an otherwise beautiful city.

We have stayed there on previous occasions and although it was comfortable then we were not prepared for the huge make over. They upgraded us to a junior suite which was fabulous. The bathroom was great as were the amenities there ,the bed linen ver luxurious.
The position of the hotel is perfect ,on a small square near to everything. The staff were very welcoming and helpful, breakfast was very good. We would not stay anywhere else in Florence.

We spent 3 lovely days in Florence in July at the Brunelleschi. The hotel is situated in a quiet back street yet only a couple of minutes away from the Duomo. An ideal setting. We booked our room as part of a package with Citalia and being in July we got 3 nights for the price of 2 and a dinner at the hotel's Tower restaurant included. As mentioned in other reports the wine is very expensive, We also noted from the menu that the pasta 'first courses' were also expensive.although the food was very good.
The bedroom was very well appointed and the bath room spacious and modern. The air conditioning certainly worked well which was a good thing as the temperatiures in the city were in the mid to high 30's.There was an exceent choice of food at the buffet breakfast. The reception staff were very helpful. All in all an excellent stay.
When in Florence a visit to Santa Maria Novella is a must and in my opinion if you haven't time to visit The Uffizi and the Accademia go for the Accademia. Also anyone over the age of 65 take some photgraphic ID with you( I had a copy of my passport) as many of the galleries are
.free to the over 65's. The Brunelleschi is an ideal choice if staying in Florence.

We had seen a review of the hotel in a Sunday paper and decided it was the place to stay. Great mix of old and new. The reception is massive and sets the scene well. I couldn't stop smelling the room diffusers in reception! I did find the layout of the hotel difficult to follow and we were forever getting lost. The rooms were very sharp, crsip and modern. The bed was one of the best I have slept in. The breakfast selection was excellent and staff helpful. One downside was the price of wine (per bottle) which was very expensive in the Tower restaurant. We had a great stay though and if you want somewhere a little different then this is the place to stay.

Room Tip: Go for the best that you can afford. Ask for a high floor.

Fantastic hotel in the heart of Florence, loved the interior and the location of the hotel.
Parking was overpriced and we had some trouble with the A/C, not so nice with when its 36C outside but apart from that YES.

We will absolutely come back here

I made the reservation for the Hotel Brunelleschi quite blindly. I picked it for the location (near the Duomo) and found no bad reviews. Somehow we ended up with an exceptional room (only 2) in a rather exceptional hotel. To get to our room, we went up 1 elevator and down a hall to another elevator which we took to the top and then walked up a flight of stairs. The room had 2 levels: the entry, closet and very modern bath. Up the stairs was a round room with a huge round bed - tv etc - and the room was surrounded by windows...simply astounding. Out the windows, so close we felt we could almost touch it, was the Duomo. The ceiling was made of open beams - beautiful. The next pleasant surprise was the breakfast (included). It had a wonderfully grand variety of foods. I have never had such a sumptuous included breakfast before. I would highly recommend it - AND ask for one of the 2 top rooms.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the 2 top rooms
