Lodging Details

Royal Junior Suite
The world famous Uffizi Gallery is just a few minutes’ walk from the Hotel Helvetia & Bristol and was without a doubt the inspiration for the interior designer who planned the Royal Junior suites. Their fine antique furniture, Murano glass chandeliers and paintings will imbue you with a sense of awe as they set a new standard for luxury… a luxury that enthralls.

Our Royal Junior Suites are 40 square meters (431 square feet) and have a spacious parlour, marble bathroom, bedroom with either a double bed or twin beds, flat screen TV and high speed internet connection and a safe for your valuables. All of these suites give onto the grand Piazza Strozzi and one even has its own private balcony.
