Florence would not be Florence without the Hotel Helvetia & Bristol. It is, in fact, not just one of the most luxurious and prestigious hotels of the city but an important symbol of the history of Florence.
Since the second half of the 1800s, Helvetia and Bristol’s refined and elegant rooms have welcomed illustrious members of the international elite and celebrities from all over the world, who have also chosen the hotel as their Florentine residence, not just for its wonderful location and but also for its superb service.
The building that houses the hotel, which dates to the 1800s, has been meticulously renovated and once again glows with its original splendour. The décor and furniture have been beautifully chosen and the ambience reflects the Florentine aristocracy in its most elegant period.
The rooms boast antiques, the halls proudly display their 17th century paintings and the panoramic suites give onto the timeless beauty of the cupola of the Brunelleschi duomo. With 66 antique filled bedrooms and suites, exclusive fine dining restaurant, Hostaria Bibendum and intimate bar, the hotel makes an excellent base from which to explore the treasures of Florence and the surrounding area
