This 4-star property in the heart of Florence brings together an excellence in hospitality with the magical heritage of the “Renaissance Capital” of Italy. Hotel Brunelleschi is a historical pearl right in the city center, located just a few steps from the Duomo, Piazza della Signoria, the Uffizi Gallery, Ponte Vecchio and the main shopping streets. The property developed around and inside the Byzantine Pagliazza Tower, a symbolic structure. Adjacent to it, the Church of San Michele is now home to the hotel’s grand hall.
However magnificent its original built, Hotel Brunelleschi was completely restored with a keen attention-to-detail in 2013. The renovation allowed the property to offer sophisticated interiors designed to satisfy contemporary tastes. An eclectic modern style, the property features handpicked antiques, mixed with contemporary materials, such as glass and metal. The hotel also features Murano chandeliers hung from beautifully restored wooden ceilings, paired with voluptuous fabrics, stone steps and marble bathrooms.
The 96 elegant bedrooms and unique suites of the Brunelleschi each come with their own charms. Some accommodations offer the chance to admire spectacular views of the city historical centre, as they overlook the Duomo, Giotto’s Bell Tower, the Bargello Museum, Palazzo Vecchio or the Basilica of San Miniato a Monte perched on the hills surrounding Florence. Other rooms face the renowned shopping street Via de’ Calzaiuoli, while others look out on the quiet inside courtyard Piazzetta del Giglio or Piazza Sant’Elisabetta.
The Brunelleschi provides all guests with the latest range of services, like 24-hour room service, twice-daily housekeeping service with turndown and valet parking. Additionally, suite guests are privy to special amenities such as a devoted Suite Ambassador, shoe-shine and ironing service upon arrival, as well as packing/unpacking service, a personal Chef for breakfast à la carte, favorite flowers, daily newspapers and daily sweet treats delivered to the room.
Among the suites, the signature Pagliazza Tower suite is a luxurious accommodation on the two top levels of the most ancient building in Florence. It boasts a direct view of Brunelleschi’s Dome and a round custom-made bed set among stone walls for a magical and unforgettable experience. If breathtaking views are what you are looking for, the Pool Suite offers nearly 360-degree on the city’s landscape – either from the comfort of your bedroom or from the Jacuzzi-equipped balcony.
The fitness center comes equipped with state-of-the-art Technogym machinery including treadmills, a stair stepper and stationary bike. Plus, there is a multipurpose machine for both legs and arms, weights, barbells, mats and balls for floor exercise. Also, a locker room with lockers and showers is at guests’ disposal, complete with bottled water and cool towels.
When seeking a culinary experience in Florence, a dinner at Restaurant Santa Elisabetta is not to be missed. Reservations are recommended as only seven exclusive tables make up this enchanting dining hall, located on the first floor of Torre della Pagliazza. Ristorante Santa Elisabetta was awarded with 1-Plate of Distinction and 3 Forks by the Michelin Guide 2019 and it is a Maison Recommandée Perrier-Jouët. Young and creative, Chef Rocco De Santis will delight you with artistic creations and Mediterranean ingredients.
Osteria della Pagliazza offers the best of traditional Tuscan cuisine in the relaxed yet sophisticated area on the tower’s ground floor. In the warmer seasons, the Osteria has outdoor seating perfectly situated in the quiet patio of Piazza Sant’Elisabetta.
The Tower Bar, located on the ground floor of Torre della Pagliazza, is a celebration of contemporary and antique design coming together. In the sophisticated atmosphere of the bar you will be able to enjoy your favorite drink or a genuine glass of Chianti while admiring the original painting “Flying Golden Lady” by artist Massimo Barzagli. In the afternoons, sandwiches, salads and snacks are on the menu.
The property is ideal for families, couples and even solo travelers, as its boutique feel gives guests a chance to soak up a pampered holiday experience. We especially love the two-bedrooms suite for families. These accommodations are spacious with the interconnecting suites totaling 968 square feet, giving ample space for everyone to relax.
The hotel is on Piazza Santa Elisabetta, just steps from The Duomo, the famous Uffizi Gallery, Piazza della Signoria and all other famous landmarks, as well as main shopping streets, are well within walking distance. The Hotel is also easily reached from the main train station and from Florence Airport.
