We had a lovely three days stay at this hotel. Very clean, a spacious room. All the front desk staff were excellent. All the requests we had asked they were so efficient. Restaurants recommendations were great also.

We enjoyed very much our visit at this beautiful and old town of Toscane - Italy and one of the reasons was our stay at hotel Bretagna, not only because of the very expert staff but because of the grate location of the hotel, also (historical center and facing the Arno river). We never used transporation, except from and to the airport (for 23-25 euros), so we walked on foot to all the important places as far as, Uffizi Gallery, Palazzo Piti, Ponte Vecvhio, e.t.c., you see the weather (end of November) was very nice for that time, only some cold but very sunny. The local cusine is very tastefull and the "trattorias" have very good service, we enjoyed very much local Toscane red wine. We have travelled Europre more than 20 times, 3 to Italy, our travell experience was one of the best and also our stay at hotel Bretagna was one of the best.
E.K. Greece

Room Tip: A room facing the Arno river is the best I beleive and choosing a junior suite is a grate choise because of the more than 30 sm you can enjoy and feel comfortable (and the jacuzzi also).

This is the best hotel for the price at which this comes to customers.My family has been coming to Europe for a long time and this is our third trip to Italy, the second to Florence in five years. We compare this hotel to our stays in Italy so far and our experience at Bretagna trumps all.
This is definitely a five-star plus hotel!!!!!

Room Tip: Hotel Bretagna is located in the middle of the most visited tourists attractions in Florence-a stone throw from the 'old Bridge' the Uffizi, the Dome ann the Cathedrals. The hotel is surrounded by great eateries. Bretagna is also staffed by women and man who treat guests as royalties, who speak good English. The breakfast is buffet like with choices that rival any first class restaurant! The rooms are spacious, clean and with bathrooms that are clean and where water runs so well. All of this at a pittance! We got the best value in hotel for the price we payed.

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.

Dear Mr. Gatineau,

Grazie mille for this amazing review on tripadviosr!
We are proud to know that you enjoyed very much your stay with us.
We are glad to discover that even if your room had the external bathroom you loved it!
As you mentioned only one room in the entire hotel has the external bathroom and this is the main aspect of this typology. Of course the bathroom is for private use and is well furnished.
We would like to thank you for your kind compliments for our staff. It is very important to know that our team do their best.

We are waiting to see you soon!

Warmest regards from all of us,

Fabrizio

This hotel is intended to be set in old Florentine aristocratic architecture, ie large rooms high ceilings big open unscreened windows. Few modern upgrades. In November it was surprisingly warm 18degC outside but sadly 26deg C inside. The hotel owner has a policy of turning off all a/c systems permanently until spring at the first of November. So we baked in our room until the night cooled off. The biggest redeeming feature however is the support staff. The front desk Italian staff were consistently very friendly and helpful which is unusual in Florence. Front line staff in the Italian tourist business are generally very mechanical, much like airport staff. You get used to it. The breakfast supervisor was exceptional and the breakfast included was excellent, although they have put too many tables into one room. I would go back because of the staff, not because of the hotel. The price does not match the amenities. Perhaps this is because it is a short walk to the main squares and museums. You will have to prioritize what you need when you visit.

Room Tip: The main reception is up a two flights of stairs. Don't be surprised when you arrive. Just push the call buttons to get into the building. Once you are in its fine. Moderate walk from the train about 1K. Easy to find though right on the river.

We are very sorry if the a/c upset you so much.
We would like to inform you that in Italy, in Florence from 1st November starts the period of heating system and the city turn off the air conditionning. Usually in November the average temperature is 10,5 °C: 6°C minimum and 15 °C maximum.
