HOTEL BRUNELLESCHI FIRENZE
HOTEL BRUNELLESCHI FIRENZE is a four-star boutique hotel located in the historic city center of Florence. Once owned by Renaissance architect Filippo Brunelleschi, the property includes Pagliazza Tower, which is the oldest structure in Florence, and San Michele in Palchetto Church, which serves as the hotel’s entrance and reception. The result of renowned architect Benelli’s careful renovations, the buildings have been re-orchestrated into an enchanting set of lodgings that epitomize classic Florentine design. The rooms are especially charming, with their oak floors, tall ceilings, and luxurious beds outfitted with velvet headboards and canopies made from fine fabrics woven exclusively for the hotel. For a special treat, book the pool suite, with its Jacuzzi and amazing views of Giotto’s bell tower and the cathedral; or the deluxe executive, from which you can enjoy equally breathtaking panoramas right from bed.
The color theme of plum (the color of Florence), light green, and dove grey ties everything together into a harmonious and romantic whole. Indeed, romance is always in the air here, in every sense of the word—the hotel was even mentioned in the finale of Dan Brown’s book The Da Vinci Code. Few properties in the city allow guests to so easily immerse themselves in the Florentine experience, and you’re only a short walk from the Dome, the Piazza della Signoria, the Uffizi, and the amazing shopping along Ponte Vecchio. Once back home from your adventures, relax with a drink at the Florence Tower Bar, and then choose from among two restaurants that excel in the ambiance and flavors that have made Florence a destination for foodies from around the world: the Osteria della Pagliazza, with its comprehensive menu of traditional Tuscan fare, or Ristorante Santa Elisabetta, with its extensive regional offerings.
