“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

The best hotel in Florence. Right in the centre and next to the duomo. Lovely breakfast, loads of choice. We are picky hotel guests and this place is amazing! The rooms are so clean and nice with plenty of space and good size bathroom. Would make the perfect honeymoon hotel, Florence was brilliant! Staff were great and told us the best places to go.

Room Tip: Get breakfast in the hotel as Florence is expensive and it Is a lovely buffet

We've stayed here twice, and this is a beautiful hotel located in the center of Florence. Close and convenient to pretty much everything. The rooms (at least the ones we stayed in) were large and comfortable with expensive furnishings. The lobby is beautiful, and the included breakfast was a real feast. The service is wonderful, the staff very attentive and they clearly understand that most of the guests are tourists from outside Italy and thus may need some additional patience and assistance. The front desk staff was super helpful in finding us a voltage adapter for my lap top when I lost the one I had brought with me. All in all a great hotel, but note it is very pricey $$$$$$$$. Even so, I still give it a 5 star rating.

We loved the Hotel Brunelleschi. It is in its own, tiny little piazza next to the only round tower in Florence. Perfectly located around the corner from the Duomo, the staff was superb, the room beautiful, tasteful, modern and clean, the bathroom - stunning! It was beautifully decorated, with every amenity (except a dresser of drawers -- and when we asked about that, one appeared within ten minutes!). It has its own tiny little museum underground as the tower was once a prison for women. I can't BELIEVE how lucky we were to end up at this hotel and I can't imagine staying anywhere else when we return. And I'm a Four Seasons person! LOVED IT!

My first visit to Florence was made all the more wonderful by our stay in the Hotel Brunelleschi which we sourced via the internet. Such a perfect place to stay! We were made to feel very welcome by all the staff we met, nothing was too much trouble. Our room was stylish, extremely comfortable and very well equipped, especially the bathroom. We couldn't have asked for more and, despite our room facing onto a pedestrianised road, was very quiet. Breakfast was all one would hope for! Altogether a beautiful hotel full of history in a tiny courtyard just a few minutes from the Duomo with excellent staff....perfect! We look forward to returning some day.

The hotel was beautiful and well situated in the city. The only problem was since it is on a small street the day we arrived after a long day of air and train travel with our luggage and family we found the road to the hotel blocked by construction / the bellman, our driver and my sons had to take our 10 pcs of luggage by hand to the hotel. Also note clear glass doors on the bathrooms made it a bit less comfortable . Rooms were nice clean and luxurious but a little on the small side and because the streets are small and city tight they don't get a lot of natural light. The hotel is beautiful and very florentine 2 old buildings completely connected remodeled on the inside all exposed brick and modern glass staircases. Our stay was enjoyable.

Loved the Brunelleschi it is an extremely stylish hotel. Lots of pleasures for the eye such as large, beautiful chandeliers and mirrors. The colour theme throughout is grey.

The Brunelleschi is a 'stone's throw' from the Duomo in the centre of Florence but is very quiet.

The bedrooms have a large TV and are likewise very stylish. They are quite small but they are very comfortable and warm.

My husband would have liked wifi but I was really glad it was not available otherwise he would have been on his computer all the time!

The staff are charming and the breakfast fine but if you like strong coffee make sure you request it.

In these times when so many hotels look the same across Europe and indeed the rest of the world, the Brunelleschi has character and you will not forget it.

We stayed at Hotel Brunelleschi in July 2012. The hotel is located in the best part of Florence only a couple of blocks from the Duomo but is on a quiet and narrow alley so you do not feel overwhelmed by tourists once at the Hotel. We booked a superior room but for some reason we were upgraded to their "Pool Suite". Let me just say AMAZING!! The two story suite had a private balcony with the most amazing view of the Duomo (especially at night when the Duomo is all lit up) it's own jacuzzi tub and comfortable lounge chairs. I got to peek in at some of the other rooms and they were all very pretty and beautifully decorated. This is one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed at in Europe or the US. We did not eat at the hotel restaurant so I can not comment on that but I highly recommend this hotel!
