Hotel Helvetia & Bristol in Florence, Italy
Set in the center of Florence, the fantastic Hotel Helvetia & Bristol is an essential component of the city's magnificent architectural history. This restored building retains a period feel in rooms awash in lush silks, figured-tile flooring and 17th-century Florentine paintings. Visit the Hostaria Bibendum restaurant, where Chef Roberto Cordisco deliciously interprets Tuscan cuisine, while the sweeping windows of the fifth floor suite make guests feel as if the Duomo is right in their own back yard.
When it comes to exploring the city, there is no better place to begin than at this popular gathering place for artists, celebrities and aristocracy. Pay a visit to the renowned Uffizi Gallery, take in Michelangelo's wondrous statue of David, shop on the Via Dei Tornabuoni, and wander picturesque streets that have changed little since the 15th century. Sunsets are a particular delight, especially when paired with a view of the Ponte Vecchio and the Arno River.

Reviews for Hotel Helvetia & Bristol
I visited the Bristol with my best friend for a little girls trip. We came to visit two close friends who live in Florence. Every single time my friends visited me at the hotel they were essentially harrased and given a limit of time they could visit as well as having their ids taken from them. The experience was beyond unpleasant, one night they came to get ready for a night on the town all together and the receptionist aggressively knocked on my door to demand their ids and a time frame for their "visit". I feel insulted and embarrassed by the treatment this hotel gave to my closest friends, specially at the price one pays. I would absolutely not recommend. I have never heard of hotels having visiting hours or receptionists banging on your door to bother you and your guests. Absolutely terrible.

This is truly a stunning hotel. The location is perfect, just off the Piazza della Signoria, and the rooms are simply opulence in furniture form! The suite we stayed in was bigger than our flat! The interior is exquisite, absolutely what you would want and hope for from a 5 star hotel in Florence; the staff attentive, helpful, professional but never intrusive, and the breakfasts must be seen to be believed. This is a once in a lifetime place that I intend to visit much more than once.

Great location in the centre, so able to walk everywhere, although some outside noise at night. Very comfortable & elegant hotel. Staff friendly & very helpful. Good selection on offer for breakfast, but didn't dine there.
