“Nice hotel in a central location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

Stayed there for 3 nights recently and I really enjoyed my stay.

Staff are super friendly and helpful. I needed to print out a confirmation email for museum, they did it without any questions. They have 24/7 reception, and staff speak good English. They can also book tickets for you to Uffizi or Gallery Academy (Michelangelo's David) too.

Room is nice and clean (I stayed in room 39, so it is separated from other rooms), and hence it is quiet on the 3rd floor.

the hotel itself is situated along the river, and 5 minutes walk to Ponte Vecchio. I walked everywhere in Florence, and they can call a taxi for you, and it will arrive within 5 minutes.

The breakfast is good too, but I would say don't stuff yourself at the breakfast, but go out to eat pasta, pizza and gelato, and there are lots of good restaurants in Florence! All within walking distance from the hotel!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

A quirky hotel set up, not traditional but very charming. Walk into what looks like a private apartment block and go up to level 2, walk out into the reception and look out off the little balcony of the river and the Ponte Vecchio you are that close.
The reception staff were very friendly and efficient. I had an issue with the bed being hard and uncomfortable but they offered a solution and followed through.
The reception will also recommend local eateries that are off the beaten track of tourists so you have a real taste of Florence - it is obvious that they are proud of Florence.
The room was a little small but seems to be the way in Italy for single travellers but it had everything you needed. The shower was one of the best I experienced while on holidays, powerful and hot.
The breakfast was ok, nothing special but it got the day off to a good start. I was surprised the coffee was not better being in Italy but you cant have everything.
I would recommend it to anyone travelling as it is a little unusual, the staff are friendly and make good recommendations but over all the location was the best, right on the river front and a short walk to all the sights, shopping and eateries.
Like most of what I experiences in Italy, it was expensive which questions the value for money.

The Bretagna combines the old world charm of a former private palazzo (frescoed ceilings in the public areas) with a front desk staffed by the most charming and helpful young women. The bedrooms are freshly done and attractive. The location is near the Santa Trinita bridge and an easy walk to major museums and the train station. The breakfast room and reception are particularly appealing with the view of the river.

Very nice hotel, we had a room at the river, in the new building. Not cheap but worth its price. Good breakfast, central location, not far from the station, were we took a bus to the airport of Pisa (5Euro).

Room Tip: Best, but most expensive, is a room at the Riverside, but the view is very nice. Many restaurants n...
