Good service, good choice of local food for breakfast and dinner. Staff are well trained and attentive. Public areas have original style floors and decor but our suite renovated in a more modern decor which is not our taste in firenze. Building is a bit of a labyrinth and some public rooms are more for show than useful Good small... More

This hotel is truly 5 stars. Service is excellent. You are greeted with a glass of prosecco and a tour of the former palace. It is a gorgeous hotel. The rooms were spacious and very nice. Large bathrooms and in room bar. The breakfast does not offer a huge selection, but a very nice one, and you can order eggs... More

My husband and I booked this hotel for our 25th anniversary. It was our first time in Italy and we arrived at the Relais Santa Croce after a fabulous 6 night stay at the Waldorf in Rome. We had high hopes upon arriving as the reception and sitting areas were very nice, but it all went downhill after our initial... More

Two weeks, four cities, and this was our one hotel for the entire trip (the rest were Airbnb rentals). Carefully selected, expecting a lot---we are formerly from New York city and San Francisco proper---and it exceeded our expectations. Relais Santa Croce is class, comfort, and style wrapped up in a lovely, friendly package. From the moment we arrived to the... More

I felt a bit deceived by the information about the room I booked. According to this hotel's standards a junior suite is no more than an ordinary double room with a veranda which, by the way, had not been cleaned once during my stay. The flower pots were littered with cigarette butts (I don't smoke) and dusty. The TV set... More

I had high expectations for this property given the price and reviews.
