Best hotel in Florence
The H&B was one of the most beautiful hotels we ever stayed at. Located in the center of everything you’d want to see in Florence and all within walking distance. We were upgraded to a suite upon check in. The room was HUGE and gorgeously decorated. The bed was large and comfortable and they offer a pillow menu to make sure you get the exact kind of pillow you’re used to! The bathroom was soooo spacious. It was heavenly. The concierge team was incredibly friendly and helpful! You leave the key at the front desk upon leaving and it’s a seamless transition upon returning to the hotel- 24/7 concierge team. The breakfast spread was immense and delicious. The whole experience seemed very luxurious. We needed to buy train tickets from Florence to Rome and Alessandro was so helpful in facilitating that for us. The hotel is amazing. The staff is amazing. Definitely returning to H&B on our next trip to Florence. So sad to leave after 4 days!

I was here for work. It's a small wonderful boutique hotel in the city. The gentleman in the front, I cant recall his name, was excellent! He knew my name every-time I came in the door. I lover wonderful charming service. I got a room upgrade as well. I work in the travel industry and I'll be sending my clients here.

Historically beautiful hotel with high quality service (especially Sabrina!) and a perfect location in the heart of Florence. I loved the hotel's old-world charm and our comfortable and cozy two floor hotel room. My mother and I had a memorable stay at Helvetia & Bristol Firenze and will be sure to return the next time we are in Florence.
