While holidaying in Italy we have used Rome as our base camp and spent short stays around the rest of Italy which brings us to the hotel Santa Croce in Florence. From the time we arrived they made us feel very welcome, explaining to us the history of the hotel and the local tourist highlights of the area. (As it... More

My fiancé and I stayed at this hotel for about 4 nights in November and enjoyed it so much we wanted to extend our stay however we already had other travel plans. The two owners were great during our stay, going out of their way to help us whenever possible. They helped us decide on a tour of Tuscany along... More

I initially booked a 3 night stay but due to trip complications, I had to reduce my stay to 2 nights at the last minute. I called the hotel and they were very gracious and told me it would be no problem. The hotel is owned and run by 2 brothers who work very hard at making sure the guests... More

Upon arrival Mario and Gabriele both welcomed us warmly. We were given drinks as soon as we walked in the door and shown on a map where everything was around the city. Whenever we asked the staff they were very helpful, two recommendations for restaurants were both appreciated. Would definitely recommend and stay here again.

Small and perfectly formed! Stayed for a short break to visit some of the wonderful sites in Florence. The room was small and at the top of the hotel with no lift but for the price and location it was perfect. It was clean (linen changed regularly) and nicely decorated. Small shower room which is typical for Italian hotels in... More

We only stayed for one night, but the staff was friendly, informative and helpful. The room, while small, was comfortable and the hotel is very close to all the major sightseeing destinations. The price was very good, including a breakfast with an excellent cappuccino!

Great location for a hotel and friendly people. We loved the owner/manager and the location. This was the perfect hotel for us. We spent most of our time outside touring the city, eating in a near by restaurant, or sitting in a piazza enjoying the view. The hotel was for sleeping and breakfast only. Fantastic historical gem in near all... 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.
