My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Brunelleschi for two nights in February 2011 during a trip through Italy. The hotel is exactly as pictured on the website, and it definitely lives up to the excellent reviews. The location is perfect - about midway between the Duomo and the Uffizi, tucked in to a quiet courtyard. The reception was very friendly and they even allowed us to check in early. The room was very nicely appointed. Comfy bed linens and pillows, a new good-quality mattress, good storage space for the luggage (but we travel lightly), large flat screen TV, and a very nice bathroom. We booked the cheapest, lowest-level room. The room was a tad small by American standards, but it was plenty big enough for what we needed. The decor was very chic and tasteful. The bathroom had a nice rain shower with a handheld shower head. The sinks were beautiful silver glass bowls. Mirrors everywhere and plenty of light. There was even a separate second sink area that I used to put my makeup on while the hubby was showering. The room was quiet and had nice blackout shutters. When you opened the windows, though, you could hear the sounds of the city - buzzing vespas, church bells, and laughing tourists along the Via De Calzaioli. The toiletries were very nice, as well - the VRAI line from Fragonard in France (smells wonderful!!). The hotel breakfast (included in the rate I booked on hotels.com) was splendid. Cold cuts with cheese, plenty of cereals to choose from, hot eggs and bacon, fresh and dried fruits, prosecco and juices, and lots of different pastries. All buffet style. They bring you hot drinks as well - cappuccino, tea, coffee, etc. There is a hotel bar and restaurant, but we didn't try those. They did look nice, though.
You really can't go wrong with this hotel! I loved it and would definitely return here. Only criticism is that the WiFi is too expensive - but this was the case in all the other hotels we stayed in as well (in Rome and Venice).
