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.

The 4-star Brunelleschi Hotel originates from the recovered invaluable historic structures of the ancient tower named 'Pagliazza' and the medieval church of San Michele in Palchetto.
