Hotel Bretagna is amazing, its like stepping into another century but in a nice way! It is very handy for the main station and is a only a few minutes walk from the centre of town. Florence is a beautiful city and if you like old buildings and are an art lover its a city you must visit.
I would recommend booking a ' superior bedroom' at the hotel as they are in the process of renovating the hotel and these rooms have been refurbished and are very nice. The first couple of nights we were put into a lovely room with a fantastic whirlpool bath and a view of the Ponte Veccio, this was done at no extra charge as I fancied a bath. We were then moved to another equally nice room with a power shower but unfortunately no bath. The only thing I would say is that my partner and I found the beds exceptionally hard, so if you like a soft bed this place is not for you!
The staff were friendly and helpful, the buffet breakfast was fine, again if you like a full English breakfast this hotel would not suit you.
On the whole everything was very good (apart from the bed) and I would certainly recommend this hotel.
