“The best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2012

In 1 years period I have visited this hotel four times.
It is unbeilivable how amaised I am every time I go.
Everytime my room is nicer than the previous time.
I am visiting Florence for the past 30 years at least twice a year.
Finally I found the best hotel to stay.
I am looking forward my next stay at the end of the month.

Room Tip: All rooms are exceptionally good

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2012

Spent a long weekend here with husband and another couple. On arrival we checked in quickly and were given rooms in the newly converted part of the hotel, unfortunately the heating system had broken down and the rooms were very very cold. Was allocated new rooms in a different part of the hotel which were smaller but furnished to a very high standard. The hotel staff were very helpful and very apologetic for the inconvenience. The breakfast buffet had alot of choice and the service was again really good. Would recommend this hotel as was located just a short walk from all the attractions Florence has to offer.

very good hotel, very friendly staff. It is a pity some rooms are very small and do not have shelfs to put your underwear,and this for a 4 star hotel. Do not stay in room 101, very small room for two people; We could have a larger room but we had to pay for it and we did not accept it. The staff was very helpfull for looking after my luggage that did not arrived at the airport when we arrived there. Very nice restaurant and very good breakfast

Room Tip: do not ask for room 101

We were living in an apartment in Florence for 3 months so only ate out once a week or so. We chose this for our Anniversary dinner and had a really special night. Service was 5 star and the food was sensational. Modern Italian, innovative and truly original.

We had a superior room at the top of the hotel view a fantastic view of the dome! The bed was round-shaped and everything was very romantic! The staff had serious problems and I heard people complaining about air-con that didn't work and things not being fixed. It's too bad because otherwise this hotel should deserve 5 stars.

Driving in to the hotel, we called reception from the outskirts of Florence and the concierge gave us detailed instructions, bringing us in a few roads at a time through the medieval labyrinth that is central Florence. A few streets away we suddenly found our way barred by roadworks "just move the cones" said the concierge - we explained that it wasn't the cones that were the problem, it was the 4' deep hole the width of the road! "Just wait there"... only minutes later, one of the hotel staff (slightly out of breath!) appeared, introduced himself then jumped in the back seat and guided us on an intricate diversion (I'm sure we actually drove through the cathedral at one point...) to the front door of the hotel and then whisked our bags from the boot.

Everything else at the hotel was equally effortless, the room was superb, the location brilliant and I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to experience Florence from the heart of the city.

The 5 night stay at the Hotel Brunelleschi was one of the highlights of our overseas trip. The service was consistently excellent with all staff very friendly, helpful but also very professional, their grooming was impeccable. Simone and David were very welcoming and made our stay very special at any time of the day or night. The staff at breakfast every day were happy, friendly and the service again was outstanding, we had breakfast daily and the range of food and presentation was very good. We only ate in one night downstairs, Simone and David waited on us and made it a wonderful experience with a taste of local foods and wine. Unfortunately the main restaurant was booked out both nights we tried. The rooms and bathrooms were spacious, clean and as luxurious as detailed in the photos. We walked to all local attractions easily. The Galleria dell'Accademia with the statue of David,Piazzale Michelangelo at sunset, San Minato al Monte, Ponte Vecchio by day and night, Duomo were just some of the attractions we visited and were all amazing. We took a guided one day bus trip to Siena, Pisa and lunch and free time at San Gimignano which was well worth the trip. It was a long day but it was good value for 95 Euro including lunch and local wines. I would highly recommend this hotel and will definitely return on our next trip to Florence.
