Other than a problem with the lift on the last day I can only praise this hotel. I got a very good deal through British Airways so it was excellent value for money. It could not have been more centrally located being just around the corner from the Duomo, easy walking distance from all the major sites and 10 minutes walk from the railway station.
Staff were unfailingly polite and always took the time to greet me. The room had all the facilities I needed and the fittings were extremely high quality. There was no bath and only a shower but this was not a problem for me personally. Water pressure was excellent and there was both an overhead and a hand held shower which was a nice touch.
Another nice touch was the turndown service in the evening including the TV (which had a music facility) being switched to play relaxing classical music. This was a very pleasant surprise after an evening out. The room I was in was probably one of the cheapest in the hotel but even so it was a reasonable size by italian standards. However the price meant that it faced onto the main shopping street so it was necessary to keep the window closed at night due to the noise. Florence was full of American teenagers during my visit and being teenagers they do like to party! There are quieter rooms but these are more expensive I believe.
The breakfast buffet (included in the price) was very high quality and there was a good range including some cooked items.
All in all I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Brunelleschi and would definitely stay there again if in Florence.
