About Hotel Brunelleschi
Located in the heart of Florence, only a few minutes away from the Duomo, the Brunelleschi Hotel has been completely renovated in 2012. The works have brought to light the unique stylistic features of each of the Hotel's various buildings, dating from the 1st century AD to the 19th, and including the remains of a Roman calidarium and of the Byzantine tower that was incorporated in the façade.
The classical feel to the property is complimented by a melange of the different ages which have shaped the history of the building. The rooms are marked by a composite style: modern features, such as the glass stairway, blend with the ancient cocciopesto floor. The dominant colours are the white and grey of the Florentine Renaissance.
Osteria della Pagliazza chef Simone Bertaccini offers typical Tuscan dishes based on local produce. In the summer guests can enjoy an aperitif or dine in the open air in the small piazza opposite the tavern. The exclusive Santa Elisabetta Restaurant, with just seven tables in the round hall of the tower, is a fantastic location for a special dinner, don't miss their tasting menu.
The rooms and suites speak for themselves: views overlook Brunelleschi's imposing dome, the Via de Calzaiuoli or the Giglio square. The furnishings all give a sense of lightness and feature parquet floors, Travertine marble bathrooms and accent colours of violet, green and brown. Superior Executive rooms boast four-poster beds whilst the Deluxe have great views especially the Deluxe Panorama. The Pool Suite, on two floors, showcases a jacuzzi on the panoramic terrace.
