For me, the Hotel Helvetia & Bristol means a central Florence location, a boutique-hotel atmosphere and the attention of a truly spectacular staff. Artfully restored to its original brilliance, the hotel now offers the conveniences of the 21st century. The accommodations feature beautiful antiques, yards and yards of lush silks and gorgeous artwork. We so enjoyed the Winter Garden bar and could easily envision the various artists and international notables who have gathered there. The food is sensational, from the sumptuous breakfast buffet to the delicious dinner we savored at the Hostaria Bibendum.

Dating to the late 19th-century, Hotel Helvetia & Bristol is located in the very heart of Florence's historical center, between Piazza della Repubblica and Via Tornabuoni, the city's most exclusive shopping street. The Ponte Vecchio, Il Duomo and Piazza della Signoria are only a short walk away.

The Helvetia & Bristol Hotel has existed since the late 19th century in the very same building in which it resides today. The entrance can be found in Via de' Pescioni, however the main facade overlooks Piazza Strozzi. The Hotel is situated in the very heart of Florence's historical center, between Piazza della Repubblica and Via Tornabuoni, Florence's most exclusive shopping street. The Ponte Vecchio, Il Duomo and Piazza della Signoria are only a few minutes walk away. In 1990, the Helvetia & Bristol underwent a careful and detailed renovation returning it to its original splendour and timeless charm, offering its clientele elegant surroundings and refined atmosphere combined with today's modern technology.

The property has 67 guestrooms and suites with marble bathrooms, some with Jacuzzi tubs.

In the exclusive Winter Garden, with its ever discreet and attentive staff, artists, writers, leading figures in international cultural life, mix with the Florentine nobility. The Winter Garden casts a magical spell, its long silence underscored by the play of water in the fountain that greets you at the entrance. Enjoy the new fascinating bar & restaurant "Hostaria Bibendum" with its alfresco terrace. It opens its doors for lunch, afternoon tea or a candlelit dinner. Fresh Italian cuisine and Tuscan secialities, transforming each dish into an authentic master work.
