“Gorgeous, modern, luxury”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights, following a night in Pisa. The hotel is beautiful, and in a great location, a short stroll away from everything.Our room was very large with plenty of room for all of our belongings, it was very tastefully decorated and felt very luxurious. They seem to have managed to marry the old with the new perfectly The staff were helpful and accomodatiing. The breakfast had a wide selection of choice and was lovely. I would highly reccommend this hotel to anyone looking for luxury and indulgence, I have no idea why it is only 4 star and not 5!

We stayed at Hotel Brunelleschi for two nights. Wow really worth the splurge would highly recommend it for a special occasion. Service was excellent as was the location. We had a junior suite with a additional roll away bed and it worked for our family of four. The decor was beautiful, bed amazing, bathroom, wow. Our only complaint was after spending so much on the room we had to pay an additional 22 Euro for internet. We had a car but parked outside of the city and took a Taxi into the Historic Center.

The hotel is completed renovated and beautiful. The location cannot be beat - it's important to stay close to major sights (rather than far away) for two reasons: 1. you don't wear yourself out just walking to see the sights and 2. you can come back to the hotel, shower and take a short nap during the hot, hot summer months. The other great thing about this hotel is that the breakfast buffet (included with our room, check first to be sure) was a huge spread: scrambled eggs, fresh fruit, cheese, lots of pastry, orange juice, and much more. This way you don't have to pay a fortune for breakfast elsewhere. The only downside is that the wifi is very expensive (8 euro an hour or 22 euro for a day). It would be nice if there was free wifi in a lounge somewhere in the hotel, for even a limited amount of time. When you are trying to book train tickets for day excursions to Tuscany, it would be helpful to have some free wifi. Otherwise, a really wonderful hotel!

We stayed at the historic Hotel Brunelleschi for three nights in June 2012. The hotel dates from 1150. Yes 1150. 900 years ago! Fortunately it was recently re-opened. This small-ish hotel was beautifully and tastefully done. The service was impeccable. The breakfast buffet was fantastic. They had a full American style breakfast with eggs, smoked salmon, meats, croissants and even Proseco. The room was very nice and the bathroom was great with a huge shower rather than the tiny ones you often see in Europe. It was walking distance to Repubblica and just about everything downtown. Close to the Duomo, Uffutzi etc. Everything is right out the door. I would highly recommend this hotel!

Stayed at the Brunelleschi for 3 nights/4 days. The hotel is ideally located in central Florence, a stone's throw away from the cathedral and our room sported a view of the cathedral. Ask for room 405, the shower is really big and if you want a sexy shower with your partner under a rain shower. Lovely! Plus room 405 is located far away from the elevator...very good!
The staff is very friendly and the breakfast buffet is very varied and well stocked. We had dinner outside on the piazza in front of the hotel, one evening, and were also very satisfied with the quality of the dishes. I am hoping to return to Florence and will definitely try to stay at this hotel again, provided I find the same kind of internet deal on the internet as just now. Yes, prices at the Brunelleschi are not cheap and the rooms are on the smallish side, but they are modern and well furnished. Enjoy your stay in Florence!

The service was excellent by the front desk and the staff. The rooms were really comfortable and had nice space. The rooms were quiet as the hotel is tucked away from traffic. The hotel was a great place to stay in Florence and the location could not be beat. Great location to walk everywhere!

Room Tip: One of our showers was very small but the other was perfect.So you may want to specify that in your...

We stayed for 3 nights. Our room was clean, tasteful modern decoration, except to small for our taste (4 pieces of luggage). In the bathroom not much space to accomodate the toiletries of two people. This was our last leg of our tuscany trip so we had to ask for refills of the hotel's shampoo, soap and gel, because at first non were provided, and don't wait for some kind of lotion, non was provided, best to bring some from a nice tuscany store. The temperature of the room too warm for our taste, we ask reception to lower the temperature several times. Location of the hotel is prime and the staff very helpful. We had a great lunch and breakfast was good.
