My husband and I stayed here last week for three nights. Gabriele and Mario welcomed us to their hotel at check in. Gabriele brought us some juice and Mario took our two pieces of luggage to our room all the way to the 4th floor without us even requesting it. We knew right away that we made the right choice...

If you laid out a map of Florence and put your finger on the perfect place for a three-day stay, your finger might be on this hotel. It is within 10 minutes' walk of every major sight on the downtown side of the river, yet on a quiet street with countless restaurants close by. The proprietors were extremely friendly and... More

Great Location... great Service, Great Price. For a family of 4, it is difficult to find hotel rooms in Florence where we could all stay. This hotel is comfortable, and the staff is very personable and helpful to their guests. Nice little breakfast in the morning to start our day (Coffee, croissants, yogurt, cereal, juice, etc..) The only caveat that... More

Everything was mostly good except: I payed more on the first night because I went to the hotel's website using their wifi after I checked in and they had a better deal there. They also have a lot of rules. For example you cannot bring anyone to your room who isn't registered to their hotel. I guess if you meet... More

Stayed here in September with my girlfriend. The Hotel is well situated close to Santa Croce. The room was small but clean. We found the breakfasts to be good. Our room was on the top floor and there is no elevator, so it was wuite a walk up the stairs. We found the staff to be very helpful.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
STAYING AT HOTEL SANTA CROCE gives the possibility to live a unique experience in the magical atmosphere of Florence. Small but welcoming, Hotel Santa Croce is immersed in the marvellous historical centre, right in the heart of the artistic, cultural and commercial life of the city. The Hotel is situated in an historical building dating back to the 600s and stands on the remains of an ancient Roman amphitheatre. The illustrious Michelangelo Buonarroti spent his childhood years in the adjoining house (there is a marble plaque showing evidence of this on the wall of the first floor). While just a few metres away you can find all of the most important monuments and museums, as well as the most renowned bars for those who would like a taste of the Florentine night-life. Situated only 100 metres from Piazza della Signoria, the Uffizi Gallery and Piazza Santa Croce (from where the Hotel's name derives), you can admire the enchanting Basilica where the remains of the greatest artists, writers, poets and scientists in Italian history are buried; we are also just a few steps away from il Duomo, il Battistero, the magnificent Campanile di Giotto and the Basilica of Santa Maria del Fiore and Santa Maria Novella, not to mention the precious Ponte Vecchio, under which Florence's rushing River Arno flows. Or if you would prefer to dedicate some of your free-time to shopping, you can spend hours walking up and down Via Tornabuoni or Via De Calzaiuoli discovering the best names in Italian, and international fashion. The breakfast room, cosy, warm and welcoming, will help you wake up in the best of moods. There is a 24-hour reception service and staff are always willing to help wherever possible. Enjoy your stay at Hotel Santa Croce ! ... more   less
