Hotel Brunelleschi is a luxurious and legendary Florentine landmark, situated in a prime spot in Florence’s historical centre, just a few steps from major sights such as the Duomo and Uffizi Gallery, as well as museums and shopping streets.

The luxury property is located inside the oldest building in town, the Byzantine Pagliazza Tower, and inside the former medieval St. Michael’s Church. The hotel has its own museum in its building, too, where architectural remains of original Roman baths are housed.

Following a 2013 renovation, Hotel Brunelleschi is now fitted out with modern furnishings and conveniences, which sit harmoniously alongside the building’s historical features.
The hotel’s service is a match for its decor. Everything inside Hotel Brunelleschi has been created to ensure guests enjoy the perfect stay, with the highest standards of comfort.

The 96 elegant rooms — most offering stunning views over the heart of Florence — include family suites with interconnecting doors. Having the chance to admire views of the famous Brunelleschi’s Cupola from one of the rooms or suites is a unique and unforgettable experience.

The unique Pagliazza Tower Suite, spread over two floors in the historical tower, has charm, history and outstanding views. The Pool Suite will leave guests speechless, thanks to its private whirlpool bath-equipped terrace, which offers priceless vistas of Brunelleschi’s Cupola and the world-famous Piazza della Signoria.

The Suite&More programme is an exclusive scheme that includes complimentary benefits, offers suite guests transfers to or from Florence station and airport, packing and unpacking services and laundry pressing. A personal suite ambassador is at the disposal of guests for advice, requests or reservations, while a personal chef prepares a full a la carte breakfast served in the exclusive Santa Elisabetta Restaurant.

On the first floor of the Pagliazza Tower, the Ristorante Santa Elisabetta is a fine-dining temple listed in the Michelin Guide, with just seven tables and a charming atmosphere, helmed by chef Rocco De Santis.
