Maze-like hallways make the hotel confusing to navigate
Steep fee for Wi-Fi
The Hotel Brunelleschi is a historic boutique property that's on the higher end of the price scale -- for good reason. The 95 rooms are of average size by Florence standards, and have lovely, classic decor -- wood floors, crisp white linens, wall panel molding, and in suites, four-poster canopy beds (though some rooms have contemporary touches, such as dramatic headboards). The hotel juxtaposes modern design elements such as glass staircases with historic elements such as old stone walls, and houses a private museum displaying ancient Roman artifacts found near the hotel. It's a convenient location for first-time visitors to Florence, just a short walk away from high-end shopping and popular museums, and the train station.
In a calm pedestrian plaza, surrounded by ancient Roman walls, and a very short walk to museums and shopping
Even for a comfortable luxury property like the Hotel Brunelleschi its solid location is still one of its strongest suits: It's situated near central Firenze facing a private cobbled street, offering a quiet locale close to many of the city's main draws. The Duomo and popular public squares (including the Piazza della Signora) are within walking distance.
Florence is extremely pedestrian-friendly, and is one of Italy's most beautiful cities -- it's more compact, and less gritty, than Rome. The Duomo is the most iconic sight here, but other popular attractions include Michelangelo's "David" at the Galleria dell'Accademia, the works of Botticelli and da Vinci at the Uffizi, and the Ponte Vecchio bridge, which dates back to the 1300s. The Piazza della Signora is a popular tourist hub, and many hotels are located near it.
