Helvetia & Bristol, 5-star hotel in Florence, near Palazzo Strozzi - photo 1

A luxurious historic residence in the heart of Florence that reinterprets the Italian "Great Beauty"

Hotel

The eternal magic of Florence pervades every corner of the Helvetia & Bristol Firenze - Starhotels Collezione, located in the heart of the historic center, just a short distance from the main attractions. The recent renovation of the hotel has returned one of its most refined and important historic buildings to Florence. Here history, art and great master craftsmen meet and reinterpret the "Great Beauty" of Italy, giving guests a memorable stay in the cradle of the Renaissance.


 

History

Since the late 19th century, Hotel Helvetia & Bristol has been offering travellers from around the world a luxury home in the heart of Florence. Staying at this historic palazzo, you can breathe all the charm of the Renaissance – the elegant atmosphere that accompanied the trips to Italy of the international elite during the Grand Tour and the literary encounters of the writers who loved to frequent the Winter Garden.
A refined setting that over the centuries has been chosen by illustrious personalities such as Enrico Fermi, Eugenio Montale, Gabriele D’Annunzio, Luigi Pirandello and Eleonora Duse, who chose the hotel as their long-term Florentine residence.


 

Incomparable location in the historic heart of the city

The Helvetia & Bristol is undoubtedly one of the most evocative places to stay in Florence: it is located in the heart of the historic center, a few steps from Palazzo Strozzi, the Duomo and via de 'Tornabuoni, the most famous shopping street in Florence. with its luxury boutiques.

The Hotel is the ideal starting point for visiting the city on foot, discovering not only its most famous artistic and architectural treasures, but also its most hidden secrets like real “city insiders”.


 

"Sense of place"

The hotel is a reassuring and intimate aristocratic residence, a reference point for sophisticated international guests who love to immerse themselves in Florentine beauty.

The "sense of place" is reflected in every detail and brings back the authentic way of experiencing the city.

 

 

An extraordinary renovation project

 Masterful renovation that has rewritten the history of Italian luxury hospitality with a perfect mix of careful restoration and a new contemporary touch, returning to Florence one of its most elegant and important residences.


 

Passion for high craftsmanship and Italian "The Great Beauty"

Selection of fine fabrics, antiques and precious Italian furnishings by the best Italian artisans such as Moleria Locchi, Murano glassmakers, Rubelli, Antico Setificio Fiorentino, Fiacchini, Anichini and il Bronzetto

 


 

New rooms and suites designed by Anouska Hempel

Anouska Hempel, who oversaw the design of the new “seductive” suites, is a reference name on the international scene already known for being the first in 1978 to launch the concept of a “boutique hotel” in London. For Starhotels, the designer has already taken care of the renovation of The Franklin in London in 2016, while the Helvetia & Bristol project marks its official debut in the hôtellerie in Italy. 

For the construction of the 25 new rooms and suites housed in the building adjacent to the historic hotel, formerly the headquarters of the Banco di Roma, Anouska Hempel fulfilled the desire of President Elisabetta Fabri to create a new, surprising and intriguing hotel, and to be lived as a second home by guests who will be able to enjoy, among other things, internal courtyards and terraces on the Florentine roofs.

Inspired by the seductive atmospheres of the sumptuous Florentine palaces of the past and reinterpreting the style with a contemporary touch.
