Hotel Brunelleschi, Florence
Housed in a 6-century circular Byzantine tower and a medieval church in the heart of Florence, the 4-star Hotel Brunelleschi’s has the ultimate location, a stone’s throw from most of the city’s main attractions and just a short walk from the train station.
Throughout the hotel, original archways and stone walls are constant reminders of the hotel’s history and a private museum displays architectural ruins uncovered during the restoration of the hotel.
Bedrooms and suites
Bedrooms and bathrooms are contemporary with sumptuous fabrics, oak parquet flooring and marble bathrooms. Double rooms are located in the inner courtyard, with views over the Piazza del Giglio while the views from the Deluxe rooms are of the Duomo and Giotto’s Campanile or of Via dei Calzaiuoli, one of Florence’s principal shopping streets. Family rooms comprise two spacious interconnecting Deluxe rooms.
Suites range from Junior Suites with four-poster beds to larger suites with direct views of the Duomo but for that really special occasion, the Tower Suite at the top of the Pagliazza Tower is the ultimate room with a view.
Restaurants and bars
Choose from two restaurants, the Restaurant Santa Elisabetta and the less formal Osteria della Pagliazza which serves a traditional Tuscan menu. Breakfast is buffet style with the option of a more international à la carte menu – porridge, pancakes and omelettes - also available. Wine and ice-cream tasting sessions, and early evening aperitifs are all on offer in the Tower Bar.
The hotel offers 24-hour room service in addition to a full concierge service. There is also a fitness studio with Techno gym equipment.
If you are in Florence to see the sights, you would be hard pushed to find a better location. The Duomo, Baptistery and Giotto’s Campanile are on your doorstep and the glorious Piazza della Signoria and the Uffizi just a short stroll past the shops along the Via dei Calzaiuoli.
For those arriving in Florence by train, the hotel is a 5 to 10-minute walk from Santa Maria Novella station.
