Busses not allow to come near the hotel... Get ready to walk 250 feet with your luggages. Bathroom very old, not renovated are barely functional. The drain of the bath was plugged... So at the end of the shower, there was 8 inches of water in the bath... This problem seems to append in most rooms (speaking with other clients).... More

The hotel is not great inside. Old furniture, old bathrooms. However it is clean and warm and the staff is friendly. The location is definitely a plus as it is walkable distance from the dome and the main square. Althogh the quality is not the best, the price is in line wih the quality. Good bargain if you decide to... More

When I arrived, I was thinking to myself, what have I let myself in for. The room is dirty, bed clothes old, no lift, no breakfast included unlike ad, single pane glass in the window. Only positive is the lady in reception is helpful and its in a good location. Must remember not to stay here again, even if it... More

This place is well priced and in a good location but rough. I would stay here again but they could definitely clean the place up. Breakfast was simple. They helped us with parking for our car which was great. Abit of TLC and this place would be a real diamond

I have been several times to Florence: you can find much better value for this money. Stairs to steep, no carpeting, so a big noise whenever somebody dumps down his trolley. Room: ample. Windows and curtains, dirty. Bathroom very very tiny, to the extent that you have trouble sitting on the WC and fitting your knees to the wall in... More

I feel awful for this review, but honestly, I can't give it more than 2 stars. The front desk staff were WONDERFULLY helpful and very nice. I couldn't ask for better. They all spoke several languages very well. Location was great, very central and a short walking distance to everything. The main problem I had was with the condition of... More

The only positive thing I can say for this hotel is its location. Other than that, it's seriously over-priced and low in quality. We were 4 people divided into 2 separate double rooms, both of which didn't look anything like the pictures they have on their website. I've stayed in bare bones hotels plenty of times before, but this went... More

Good service, good size of room, great location, you can walk to the sight seeing stop bus, or walk to The Piazza del Duomo. Staff is very friendly. Good relation with price. Keep in mind this is a hotel to visit with friends, family or solo, I would not recommend for couples.

Saying it has what you need for the night is the nicest thing i can say. The best part was that there was warm water in the shower that, by the way, shares its space with the toilet. So, use the toilet before the shower so you don't slide off of it! Our toilet rarely flushed. We were too afraid... More

We chose this hotel (which is more like a hostel) for its closeness to the city centre. The Piazza del Duomo is maybe 500 metres from it. In writing this review I am in two minds what to write: on the one hand we had a nice time in Florence and did not experience any problems in the hotel. Since... 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.
