The Hotel Helvetia & Bristol – Starhotels collection is a wonderful 19th-century palazzo that, with its refined elegance and enviable location, wins over even the most demanding guests, delighting them with its timeless charm and impeccable service. Built in 1894, over the century the hotel has welcomed the leading names on the international scene, to mention a few: Luigi Pirandello, Eugenio Montale and more recently, Tom Ford and Tom Hanks. The views over Piazza Strozzi or the roofs of the heart of the city – including the breathtaking view of the Duomo from the windows of the fifth-floor suite – will let you see a priceless, exclusive Florence. Staying at this historic palazzo, guests can breathe in the heady atmosphere of the Renaissance. Every room encapsulates a different aspect of the history of Florence and of Italy as a whole, with period furnishings, priceless works of art and warm, welcoming colour schemes. Here, art, luxury and typically Italian hospitality are combined with the best service and fine dining at the Hostaria Bibendum Restaurant.
