Excellence all over!

I can not recommend this property more! There are not a lot of hotels where everything is at the highest level but Helvetia&Bristol Florence exceeded all my expectations. In terms of service, ambiance, food quality, breakfast variety and attention to details, location - at the very top! A must while visiting Florence.

Small details that make a difference

Without a doubt, a 5 star hotel
Small details, like attention to Your needs, preparation of the perfect sleep, a smile - make a difference!
The hotel itself is very boutique and luxurious at the same time. You can feel that is newly renovated and the rooms are so beautiful!
To have a breakfast in a winter garden that they have is something amazing. You just cannot wait to wake up and go there!
Staff, especially the doorman always good-natured!

Had the best cocktail from our new friend Dario. The service and the drink were just amazing. His enthusiasm and attention to detail when making drinks were just great. Well done Dario, and we look forward to getting more in the future!
