Hotel Brunelleschi 

Atmospheric and luxurious hideaway

A historic and romantic hotel in the heart of Florence.

This unique boutique hotel is named after Florence’s most revered architect and the genius behind the city’s beautiful cathedral, the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore, which it overlooks. Built around a 6th-century Byzantine tower, this attractive hotel’s historic façade is complemented by a sophisticated early 20th-century interior design and décor. The location is perfect for the exploration of the city’s main attractions. You’re a stone’s throw from Brunelleschi’s magnificent Renaissance dome, and the Ponte Vecchio, world-renowned Uffizi Gallery and Leonardo da Vinci Museum are just a short stroll away. The surrounding narrow streets are lined with restaurants and shops so everything is right on your doorstep.
