Located in a petite piazza just steps from the scene-stealing Duomo cathedral, Hotel Brunelleschi is built around a medieval tower that once housed a women’s prison. Historical links extend to an on-site museum that displays archaeological discoveries uncovered during a recent renovation. In contrast, the public spaces are boutique chic with a hint of Italian bling.
Bed and Bath
The 96 guestrooms all come with marble bathrooms, soundproofed windows and air conditioning – all of which provide welcome respite from the crammed streets below. Pastel shades and deep purple color the rooms and shimmery floral fabrics dress the beds and sofas. The hotel has recently undergone a full refurbishment but it’s the views of the Duomo and Giotto’s campanile that really steal the show.
Restaurant, Osteria Della Pagliazza, serves traditional Tuscan specialties that capture the flavors and warmth of the region, while Santa Elisabetta has a seriously impressive wine list. Brush up on your history by heading to the hotel’s private museum, which contains a Calidarium from the Roman thermal baths and plenty of medieval artifacts. Guests can work off a proper Florentine meal in the on-site gym, though in such a walkable city, sightseeing will probably burn up all the calories you need. After all, a trip to Florence is about indulging the senses, not punishing the body.
How to Get There
This is an excellent hotel in an ideal, yet quiet location in the very heart of Florence. It is well appointed and very comfortable.
The buffet breakfast is particularly good with a huge choice of top quality food.
Staff are exceptional and can’t do enough to ensure your stay is perfect.
Would recommend it highly.
We just recently stayed here while in Florence and absolutely loved it. Our suite had great views of the city and The Duomo. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I really feel they tried to make our stay the best it could be. Thank you Hotel Brunelleschi for everything !
