We booked Hotel Bretagna as a budget hotel, and were hoping for the best after reading that they were doing renovations. The people in the reception were very friendly and put us in one of the renovated rooms, although they explained it had no bath as it had been advertised (they wouldn't refund for this though). The room itself was...

You stay in this hotel for the atmosphere of staying in a period style old world residences. The hotel is a converted mansion and consequently has loads of character! The room itself (standard double with bathroom) was large and full of period furniture. However as this is an old residence, the hot water in the bathroom took some time to...

I read all of the reviews on Trip Advisor and was leery of booking at this hotel. Lots of people complained of the service and room quality. But this hotel was the only one with a river view room that we could afford so I took the plunge and reserved a Junior Suite with river view. We were not disappointed....

Great location, in front of the Arno river and very near the Ponte Vecchio, the Uffizzi galleries, the Pallazzo Pitti, etc. Warm staff and huge rooms very comfortables.

We stayed at the Hotel Bretagna in a superior room with a view. The room was really big, nicely decorated and had a beautiful view of the Arno river. The air conditioning was OK, the bathroom was clean and had a Jacuzzi, which was much appreciated by my two kids. The location of the hotel is very convenient. Florence is...

I stayed at the Hotel Bretagna in a superior room with a view. It was a wonderful room with a gorgeous view of the Arno river. The staff was very attentive and helpful. Plus, the breakfast was simple but filling. I would absolutely stay here again if I return to Florence. The location was also superb.

Hotel looks clean enough and it is basic, but then again you dont pay a lot to be in a good location. However we are pretty sure that the bites we got (and we all got over 20!) were bed bugs. I wouldnt recommend this place purely for that reason.

We are very sorry for stapling she has received during the stay with us. We did check the room from a company specializing in pest control and found no harmful insects. However we arranged to disinfect the room. Best regards Fabrizio Botticelli Hotel Manager

All I know is, when I left the hotel I had over 20 bites all over my body. I had stayed at Bretagna 7 years ago, and LOVED it, but this time I was bitten to the quick, and the staff was surly. Not recommended by me

Until the day of publication of his commentary on this site, had no complaints about bedbugs stapler. We were not informed in good time otherwise we would have done so to disinfect the room immediately. Unfortunately this did not happen and disinfection was carried out only after the next client was probably also a pinched by the same insects. As...

We stayed in a double room, shared bath at Hotel Bretagna in Sep 2009. This was the 'basic' room, and payed 65 euro/night. Apparently, the rave reviews for this hotel are for the 'superior' rooms which are significantly more expensive. The 'basic' room was overall just OK. It was fairly clean, except for the dead mosquitos stuck to the walls....

Staying in Uffizi

Neighbourhood Profile
Uffizi
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
