Walking up several flights of stairs with heavy luggage is not my idea of convenience. The elevator does not go all the way to the ground floor so some heavy climbing is inevitable. Our room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the air conditioning worked well. But we were greeted by one of the house cleaning staff who spoke... More

We stayed in Florence for 3 nights on our honeymoon and after much research we chose Black 5 Florence for location and price. We were very pleasantly surprised. It is on the top floor of a building and there is an elevator from the 1st floor up. From the warm welcome we got along with a map and personalized spots... More

The rooms are spotless, the staff are unfaultable and the San Croce Cathedral is only a minute's walk away. ** for those who can't do stairs the lift/elevator does not go to street level and to reach the lowest lift level you cannot avoid over thirty stairs from the street.

Great experience at Black 5 B&B. My friend and I stayed here, as our other accommodation in Florence had given away our room. And for a last minute booking it was a great stay. Rooms were very clean - bathroom was lovely, service was amazing (very friendly staff) and breakfast in the morning was fantastic. Ideal location too!

We had booked the economy double room but because we were on our honeymoon they upgraded us to a superior suite!! What a beautiful and spacious room! The linen was crisp and clean and the bathroom was elegant and the toilet white and clean with no stains. The room had a lovely little breakfast available which they restocked every night.... More

Staff was very sweet, we arrived a bit early and they allowed us to check our bags until our room was ready. Very good location, both places across the street are fantastic. We spent a good amount of time at Piazza di Santa Croce which was lovely, particularly in the evening. All of the shops/ cafes in the area are... More

Staying in Santa Croce

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night. Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the Central National Library. As a hub for young people, the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated by songs and dances.
