Rough Guide
In business since 1894 and favoured by such luminaries as Pirandello. Stravinsky and Gary Cooper, this is undoubtedly Florence's finest small five-star hotel.
DK Eyewitness
With five-star traditions but a more boutique feel, this hotel is full of pieces from the owner’s art collection – you might find a 17th- or 18th-century painting above your bed.
One of central Florence's best small hotels, the Helvetia & Bristol has had a distinguished history, with Stravinsky, Gabriele d'Annunzio, Pirandello, and Bertrand Russell among its past guests.
