This hotel in Florence has fantastic service. The staff are so obliging without being gushing. They offered my wife and I so much generous hospitality over our 3 night stay; including the use of a balcony on an adjoining property (they also own) to enjoy a bottle of champagne, as it was my wife's birthday. The rooms are clean and... More

This is a brilliantly located hotel, right by the Arno and very close to where you want to be in Florence (station, Uffizi, Pitti Palace, Boboli Gardens etc.) Staff are so friendly, the hotel was warm (important in February) and the staff were extremely courteous - willing to speak Italian if desired (unusual in tourist places) or perfectly competent in...

... it is the best kept secret in Florence. Just spent 4 nights here (Feb 2015) and we were really pleased with our choice. The hotel only has 20 or so rooms and, unusually, can be found on the 2nd to 4th floor of an historic building. We chose a "junior suite" overlooking the river. More a big room with... More

The hotels location is perfect you can walk everywhere from here. Florence is small so its pretty easy anyway. The hotel itself is very old fashioned, its beautiful inside with high ceilings and massive rooms. when we arrived we got lost in the hotel its all over the place. once we got to reception the girls were very helpful, they...

Pros: Location, location, location. A historical setting, period furniture, large suites, large bathrooms with jaccuzzi tubs, breathtaking views over the Arno and an amazing and professional staff. Cons: None that would be of bother to me. I am probably going to regret making this public!!!!

I stayed one night only so it was a short trip but I enjoyed my stay at Hotel Bretagna. I had seen it when I had last stayed in Florence and so when I was planning this trip and saw this hotel on a booking website I didn't hesitate. Great communication pre my stay. The early check in I had... More

The view and location were amazing, the breakfast was decent, and the staff was friendly and really helpful with finding things to do. We had a junior suite with a rivew view. The bed was AWFUL. It was comparable to sleeping on a rock. The shower and separate tub were both small, definitely not big enough for two people which... More

Our family stayed at the Hotel Bretagna in October 2014 and were eaten alive by mosquitoes, all over our entire bodies, the first night we stayed there. Disappointing there was no insect repellent in the rooms or warnings of how bad the mosquitoes were. Unfortunately our insect bites became badly infected as they were so red, large, itchy and nasty... More

What a great surprise this hotel was, the location was perfect just right by the river Arno and within walking distance of all of Venice's main attractions. The hotel is and old palazzo with beautiful big rooms, high ceilings and a beautiful decorated fresco in one of the reception rooms. The room we got had a fantastic view of the... More

We stopped just one night here - we had a standard room (room #2) which was actually one of the original large reception rooms of the palazzo - so it was huge with a fantastic decorated ceiling. Staff were very helpful and efficient, breakfast was excellent and the location, on the lung'arno was just perfect - a couple of hundred... More
