A hidden gem in the heart of the city
- 96 rooms and suites
- Two restaurants and a bar
- Private museum
Tucked away down an alley in the heart of Florence, the Hotel Brunelleschi resides within a 6th century Byzantine tower and medieval church.
It’s a boutique gem, fittingly named after architect Filippo Brunelleschi who once owned this district, and it enjoys incredible views of his masterpiece, Florence’s ‘Duomo’ Cathedral, which sits just 50m (164 feet) away.
There are 96 rooms and suites, with interiors contrasting contemporary design and amenities with the historic building and views outside. Some of the suites enjoy their own private balconies, jacuzzis and terraces.
Downstairs, breakfast is served in the old medieval church and dinners at the award-winning Santa Elisabetta Restaurant make the most of the fine climate outside during the summer months. More rustic food can be had at the osteria and cocktails concocted at the bar.
There is also a gym and private museum which holds artefacts dating back to the Roman era.
