Hotel Brunelleschi

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 May 2014

Hotel Brunelleschi is a fantastic city centre hotel. We stayed two nights for our wedding anniversary and would struggle to find fault. We'd stayed at the Hotel Santa Maria Novella on a previous visit which was also wonderful, but for no specific reason decided to try somewhere else this time. The Brunelleschi seemed like good value compared with other 4-5* alternatives so we gave it a shot.

The hotel's slogan is 'The Heart of Florence' which is entirely appropriate - it's absolutely in the middle of the histroric centre: 2 minutes stroll to Duomo, 2 minutes to Palazzo Vecchio, 4 minutes to Effizi, 5 minutes to the river, 1 minute to Piazza Repubblica etc etc. It's. the. perfect. base. for all the major sights.

The hotel is beautifully designed - a combination of boutique chic and refurbished historic building - and immediately feels like a quality hotel. Our room was not particularly spacious but perfectly presented with high ceilings, super-comfy king size bed and a large flat screen tv. WiFi (free to guests) worked fine. Breakfast was superb with a wide choice at the buffet and fantastic cappuccinos delivered on demand. The service at the hotel was faultless and courteous.

I'd rate it as a genuine 5* experience that (when we booked at least) offered excellent value compared with some of the other 5* options. It's certainly no compromise: book it and be delighted!

This was a special break made even more special by the quality of the hotel. It had everythinf from a great location, top class service and excellent food.

The only thong that stopped me giving it a rating of excellent was the price of drinks which were excessive in my view. I would still go back though if in Florence

It was apleasure to stay in such a well-run, friendly and beautifully appointed hote. Excellent location close to all the main sights with a great view of the Duomo from the bedroom yet quiet at night if the room is off the main street. Excepytionally friendly and efficient staff. A very good breakfast in a calm and elegant atmosphere. I would certainly return.

Room Tip: Choose a room not facing the main street

We stayed at the hotel with a group of friend with whom we toured the city and the surrounding areas. The hotel itself is absolutely charming, the interior design is elegant, sophisticated and thoroughly thought through. People at the reception are very genuinely friendly. The concierge services are impeccable! One of the evenings we wanted to go out but did not know where the restaurant was, not only did the concierge help us choose the restaurant but he personally walked us to the restaurant holding an umbrella above our heads as it was drizzling.
The rooms are comfortable, cozy and very stylish. The rooms are cleaned twice a day which is rare. The stuff is very diligent, attentive and very respectful of personal privacy and safety of personal belongings of the guests of the hotel.
On one of the days my friend put all her jewelry (very valuable) and cash she had on her (it was a big amount) in the safe in her room and she forgot to close it in a hurry. When she was back late in the evening she found all her belongings safe and sound.
The location is great. The management is very friendly and attentive to all clients. It is a real personalized approach towards each customer.
In a word, amazing hotel, amazing service, amazing stuff, very safe, very elegant. Definitely to be recommended.

Anyone staying in Florence should not quibble about the extra cost -- stay in what is truly the heart of this impressive city and enjoy modern comfort! Live entertainment in the piazza at night, views of the Duomo from the bedroom and the best gelato shop in the city around the corner.

The hotel is stunning and looks stunning! Has history. Rooms were spacious and clean. Location of the hotel is very central and therefore easy to get to e.g. the Uffizi (5 minute walk), Ponte Vecchio (approx 10 mins walk) and Accademia Gallery (approx 15 mins walk). Service at reception and concierge polite, professional, courteous, welcoming. Ambience superb. Breakfast extensive variety of foods. Did not eat at hotel's restaurants so cannot comment. Would stay here again.
