I liked this hotel from the first minute when I came inside. The staff is very pleasant and helpful. One problem is that reception is situated on the second froor and nobody invites you near the main entrance, you should guess where the reception is. All the rest is perfect-breakfast, restaurant, rooms, sleeping conditions, silence and of course, location! I... More

We stayed at this hotel for my birthday weekend in March and it was brilliant. The hotel is in a small side street but once inside the place is stunning, the staff were attentive, charming and discreet. The interior is like staying in a large private house and I would recommend the Santa Croce to anyone visiting Florence. Convenient location... More

Upon arrival we were greeted by a wonderful and friendly doorman. BUT then the experience changed! I came with two girlfriends and reserved a room. When we arrived we were told that it was impossible for the three of us to share a hotel room. And had to pay for another room! We booked the hotel for three nights and... More

An extremely historic property in a central setting, Relais Santa Croce was an incredible stay. I loved the way the hotel was furnished, the way the room was historic but with modern comfortable touches, and the staff were perfect.

Accustomed to staying in Piazza Santa Maria Novella, the location at first was a stretch for us. However we were quickly won over by the warmth of welcome, the relaxed luxury of the lounge, cleanliness of the rooms - and after one night - quality of the beds and the resulting sleep. Had a room overlooking the front street -... More

With only one block away from Santa Croce, you will easily find your way back when you go out wandering on your own, with the Duomo not far away. I was whisked up to the check-in desk and sat down with a glass of Prosecco and sweets. The public areas were resplendent and reminded you that you were in an... More

I spent 4 nights at the Relais Santa Croce in early January . We had a lovely room with views across the rooftops to the Duomo , it had character and comfort. Probably not quite as luxurious as some 5 star hotels but with real charm. The staff are very helpful and made us feel very welcome, we asked for... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the elegance and comfort of this once historic palace. Our stay was from Dec. 3 to Dec.8. Knowing this is a Releais/ Baglionni property assured us that this hotel would be special. We had the room with the Duomo view; it was like looking at a postcard shot. The staff was great and friendly. Breakfast... More

This is a 24 room hotel nested in an old mansion. We stayed Nov 25 - 29. We booked this hotel because the famous 3-star restaurant is in the hotel and we can conveniently go back to room after dinner. It is typical of a mansion-converted hotel where rooms are all differently decorated. Front office staff toured us around the... More

We got a special deal for a junior suite which was really nice. The hotel is a refurbished Palazzo with all the amenities of a boutique hotel. The rooms are big and the views are over the city roofs. Good, comfortable beds and very quiet location, although in the middle of the old town. The breakfast buffet is exceptional and... More
