Hotel Helvetia & Bristol is not only one of Florence's finest luxury hotels, but also part of the city's history. Situated in front of Palazzo Strozzi, in the centre of Florence, the hotel has been the 'home away from home' to many distinguished visitors to Florence for more than a century; from young aristocrats on their Grand Tour, to Pirandello and Montale, Stravinsky and Gorbachev. Owner Luigi de Simone Niquesa restored the historic mansion with meticulous care and respect using materials and furnishings that evoke a world of refined elegance, from the antique-filled guest rooms to the drawing rooms with their fine 17th-century paintings.

All the 67 sumptuous rooms and suites at Hotel Helvetia & Bristol, including non-smoking rooms, conjure up the grandeur of a bygone era. Each is different, offering its own history, colours and character, with every room an authentic private residence where you can live surrounded by all that is the noblest in Florentine tradition. All the hotel rooms are elegantly furnished with unique items such as inlaid armoires and antique tables, splendid lamps of Chinese porcelain and bronze, walls hung with artworks both great and small, a profusion of gossamer lace, silk and brocade, Carrara marble and whirlpool baths.

Guest room amenities include:
