I have greatly enjoyed my stay at Hotel Bretagna. By booking the hotel's smallest room, I was able to afford the experience of this historical building (700 years old) even though I was travelling on a budget. My room was comfortable and nicely appointed, the view of the courtyard beautiful (ancient church tower) and even though I had to walk down the hall to access the private bathroom, the hallway like everything else was charming and impeccably clean. (Note that only one room in the hotel has this feature which I opted for since I was in Florence overnight and though I could save... I did not regret.) This room was perfectly find and the bathroom was all marble, new fixtures, high ceilings...). This historical hotel is not in the shabby quaintness category.
The staff at the reception were exceptionally helpful, friendly and welcoming. I have traveled quite a bit in the last few years, and this was by far the best hotel reception that I have had. The staff is exceptional.
The breakfast provided a lot of options and everything was very good, except the cappuccino machine... it just can't compete with the real thing. The breakfast room is so nice that my friends compared it to a wedding reception when they saw the pictures.
Overall, the hotel is charming and nicely located. I was able to take great river pictures from the reception balcony.
I highly recommend this hotel and hope to be back again in the future.
