Palazzo Strozzi: Helvetia and Bristol

Via dei Pescioni 2, Phone: 055.287814

Reviewed by: ashchapman from CA, review #386

When: September 2003

Fancy 5 star, great location, near Duomo etc. Just a bit stuffy.

The hotel and our room was beatifully decorated and furnished with a cozy feel. Our room had no view. The hotel is in a great location being walking distance to most of the "must see" sites which was very nice. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I just thought the hotel itself was a bit stuffy for my taste. The hotel bar was empty and the drinks were way over-priced. I would probably not stay here again for those reasons, but I would still strongly recommend this hotel for all of its other attributes. If you have specific questions, feel free to e-mail me at zen_zoe@hotmail.com.

While in Italy, we also stayed at Covo Dei Saraceni in Positano, Locando Orseolo in Venice and Boscolo Hotel Exedra in Rome. Exedra was our favorite hotel of them all.
