Hotel Brunelleschi

  • City Breaks, Italy, Florence

Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Widely regarded as one of the best hotels in all of Florence, the Hotel Brunelleschi is a testament to Florentine architecture and history. Its formidable walls can be dated back to the sixth century and the interior is still formed of exposed stone, wooden beams, large arched windows and vaulted ceilings. Those interested in the building's history will be fascinated by its small private museum that shows the painstaking reconstruction process that took place before it became a hotel.

The owners of this superb four-star property have carefully and lovingly restored the rooms and created a luxurious space with Baroque furnishings, local artwork and sleek designer furniture all contributing to the seraphic views of the surrounding city. Breakfast is served in the large and airy dining room each morning and the gourmet restaurant Santa Elisabetta is one of Florence's finest. A choice of tasting menus are offered in an intimate setting with just seven tables. 

Hotel Brunelleschi is perfectly located for exploring this great city. Your first port of call should be the Via dei Calzaiuoli which is an expansive and pedestrianised district sat in the shadow of the Duomo and is home to both designer boutiques and local shops some of which are run by family names dating back to the 15th century. Some fantastic cafes such as Sebatino famed for their espressos and ice cream shops such as Gelateria dei Neri are firm local favourites and for good reason - the limoncello sorbet and honeycomb ice cream from the latter are exceptional!

Florence

The historic centre of Florence is small enough to explore on foot, but what a wealth of treasures are packed into it! Brunelleschi’s glorious dome floats above it all and a pleasant stroll through the narrow, pedestrianised streets will bring you to Piazza della Signoria with its marvelous Renaissance statues and the famous Uffizi art gallery. Florence has a unique style and elegance that permeates everything, from street market souvenirs to smart couture, from simple snack bars (offering an amazing range of delicious pizza and ice cream!) to the best Tuscan cuisine. Add a Tuscany or Umbria Mix & Match hotel to your City Stay (Apr-Oct). You can also add a few days in Florence onto our Treasures of Tuscany Explorer Holiday.
