It's not every day I find an inexpensive small hotel with real quality. Too often, basic amenities, including service, are sacrificed to lower the room rate. The Santa Croce is the exception to this rule. Don't get me wrong. The hotel is as simple as you'd expect in this price range: rooms are basic, the bathrooms small, and the walk... More

My fiancé and I were in Florence visiting for 3 days and decided to stay here because of the great reviews. We have come to find that they are all true!

It is a little, cute hotel in a fantastic location between "piazza della Signoria" and Basilica of Santa Croce, in the historical center of Florence and not far from the train station. Probably, the best location you might think of. I and my girlfriend had a marvelous stay at Hotel Santa Croce. The room was clean and with all you... More

If you're looking for the best value in Florence then Hotel Santa Croce is your place. Located on a little cobblestone sidestreet in a historic picturesque neighborhood full of restaurants, bars, shops, and even a grocery store. Short walk to all major sights in Florence as well as train station. Rooms are small but clean, well-maintained and ours even had... More

Good value for a safe, clean, spare, well-lighted room and simple, fresh continental breakfast in the historic center of Florence, near Piazza di Santa Croce and a short walk from the Uffezi, the Duomo. I loved going out every day guided by the owners’ helpful suggestions, directions and information on sights and history of Florence and returning to their smiles... More

I stayed here for about 4 nights with my friend last month. The hotel is small but so cute! The 2 brothers that own and run the hotel are incredibly nice. While this hotel doesn't have a lift and the rooms are small, it's a great location and price point! Plus you don't spend that much time in your room... More

We were warmly welcomed by the staff when we arrived to the hotel. Rooms were nice and clean. Yes, rooms we quite small but you don't really need more space if you use the hotel only for sleeping and showering. Breakfast was also included, the selection wasn't that wide but it was good. Fresh coffee really made our day. Location... More

Dear Henri, thank you so much for this wonderful review.

The hotel is in an old building, very charming and perfectly placed in the historic center of Florence. The staff is welcoming. However due to location the hotel is very very small. We were on 4th floor without elevator, the room and the bathroom were tiny. I felt no confort. The breakfast was very very disappointing despite of very nice... More

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
