“Great hotel in florence”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

We had a lovely 3 days in this hotel. Perfect location on the river just a few mins walk from the Ponte Vecchio. Wonderful front desk staff who were such a help and nothing too much trouble. breakfast good and car parking easily arranged from here. Close walk to all the points of interest in Florence. Dont miss the fabulous cakes at tea time! And for sure the most comfortable beds throughout our Italy adventure.

Room Tip: For superior double for best value and comfort

We were staying for 2 days on 25th & 26th December and definitely got a good deal for these dates. The location of the hotel was absolutely fantastic making the popular tourist destinations as well as the S.M Novella station easily accessible by walk. The hotel receptionists were extremely helpful and passionate in providing information about Florence itself as well as warning us about planning the trip to Pisa on the holiday. While, we had booked a standard economy double room for the 2 of us, the room size was small but neat and clean. We were happy with the bathroom as it was spacious, clean and had modern sanitary fixtures. Breakfast was basic and sufficient.

Our extended family stayed here during the Christmas holidays and found it perfect. Quad rooms were huge and easily accommodated parents and two teenagers. Staff was very welcoming and helpful; breakfast lovely (even decaf cappuccino). Only negative is no availability of food (purchase, eat-in or take-out) close by; front desk staff did help with obtaining a pizza delivery, however.

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.

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!!!!!

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
