Hotel

The eternal magic of Florence pervades every corner of Hotel Helvetia & Bristol – Starhotels Collezione, situated in the heart of the city's historical centre, just a short distance from the main attractions. Here, art, luxury and typically Italian hospitality are combined with upscale services and exceptional eating and drinking, with a view to ensuring that guests enjoy an unforgettable stay in what is, without doubt, Tuscany’s most resplendent jewel.


 

History

A 19th-century palazzo in the heart of Florence

Since the late 19th century, Hotel Helvetia & Bristol has been offering travellers from around the world a luxury bolt-hole in the heart of Florence. Staying at this historic palazzo, you can breathe in the heady atmosphere of the Renaissance – an ambience that was part-and-parcel of the journeys made to Italy by the international élite, and was nowhere more evident than at the get-togethers of the literati in our very own Winter Garden.

These, then, are high-class surroundings, and accordingly they have been the destination of choice for such illustrious Italian names as physicist Enrico Fermi, poets Eugenio Montale and Gabriele D’Annunzio, playwright Luigi Pirandello and actress Eleonora Duse, who chose the hotel as her Florentine residence for extended periods.


 

Elegance

Here, where art and history meet

Thanks to the legendary Florentine panorama, which provides the ever-stunning backdrop, with the timeless beauty of Brunelleschi's dome in the distance, Hotel Helvetia & Bristol is the perfect embodiment of the city that is known as the cradle of the Renaissance.

In this historic environment, you can experience first-hand the luxury of a warm welcome, the cordial, familiar atmosphere of a private residence, and the exclusivity of spaces rich in art and history.

Just a short stroll from Florence's famed Duomo (Cathedral), you will find an array of rooms and suites, each one different but all laden with evocative works of art, precious fabrics and fine furniture. The same elegant, opulent atmosphere fills the public areas, our Hostaria Bibendum Restaurant and our classically styled bar.

All around, the streets and squares epitomise Italy's ability to renew itself through art and culture, with this city serving as the epicentre of its re-birth.


 

Location

The magic of the heart of Florence

The Helvetia & Bristol is undoubtedly one of the most enchanting places to stay in Florence: it is located in the heart of the historical centre of the city – which has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site – just a short walk from Palazzo Strozzi and the Duomo.

The hotel is also close to Via de’ Tornabuoni, the most famous shopping street in Florence. As such, Hotel Helvetia & Bristol is the ideal starting point for visiting the city on foot, discovering its artistic and architectural treasures and immersing yourself in its society events and nightlife.
