    Great location right in the heart of Florence with the Duomo seconds away.Very quiet considering the location. The reception manager Stefano was excellent...great customer service.

    Hotel does not have an iron in the room so bring your own travel iron to avoid paying 5 euros per item for in-house ironing service!

    Great

    The room with the panoramic view was perfect. Enjoyed both jacuzzi's, especially the one on the terrace looking at the duomo! Very spacious and comfortable. Excellent breakfast. Friendly personnel.

    It was difficult to find by car due to lack of GPS signals...

    Perfect

    Restaurant Santa Elisabetta was excellent. Must try! Perfect location in the city centre for sight seeing & shopping. Silent.

    do not take room in the last (4th) floor. You hear constant noice from air condition on top of the house.

    Perfect

    The location was fantastic. 100 yards from the Duomo and all the other museums are well within walking distance. The staff are friendly and very helpful. The buffet breakfast is very good and the room we had was ideal and very clean.

    The only small critism I have with the hotel was that our room was on the 4th floor and we had a constant noise above us which we did not notice the first night as we arrived late and went straight to sleep after a long hard day travelling with a 5 hour delay. The noise seemed to be an engine or pump working above us somewhere. We did not complain or ask to be moved because the room was fantastic and the noise could be more or less eradicated using ear plugs. But it may upset some people

    I stayed at the Hotel Brunelleschi about 15 years ago and remembered that the location was excellent because we could step out the door and be in the heart of Florence yet the hotel is tucked away in a quiet street. This time (Nov 2010) once again I was happy with the accomodations as the hotel has and is in the process of up-grading the rooms and the restaurant. Our room was fabulous and so up-dated we did not want to leave the room.

    Since the hotel is maybe two buildings and an old jail tower it was somewhat confusing to find our way around, but that only lasted a day. But that also added to the charm of the old and the new.

    Perfect

    I was a single traveller staying at the hotel Brunelleschi and the staff were outstanding in every way. The location just behind the Duomo has to be one of the best in Florence this hotel li eds up to one's expectations.

    Great

    Newly refurbished rooms are very tastefully decorated, beds and linen top-class. Windows also sound-proof, so even though our windows faced a busy street, the room was quiet.

    Original room given to us (for same price) was small and had a window facing a dirty alley and looking onto a wall (very claustrophobic); be aware that you can get a much better room for the same price, by arriving early and asking. Staff were helpful in arranging an alternative room, though. Reception area and lifts are tired and need an upgrade.

    Perfect

    Cleansliness of room,very good breakfast bufett and a very helpful front desk and its prime location in the city centre

    did not receive a wake up call that I confirmed. Hotel could use one more person at reception

    Perfect

    It was centrally located, with very efficient, helpful, professional, caring reception staff. I can't speak highly enough of them especially Paulus. Nothing was a problem to him and he looked after us and problems we had else where with humour and professionalism.

    There wasn't anything about the hotel I did not like.

    Perfect

    Had requested room with Duomo view but was upgraded to a suite. Got a peek at regular rooms as we walked in and out of the hotel and those were beautiful as well. Staff was impecable. Most spoke excellent English. Were able to help us with every request. Hotel was absolutely beautiful. Beds were most comfortable we had during our trip in Italy. Location was perfect.

    Was a long walk from reception to our rooms, was a slight problem for my mother who has problems walking long distances. Would otherwise not be a problem. Workout room was undergoing renovation.
