“Real find. Terrific value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012 via mobile

Referred to this hotel by friends. It really made a difference during our stay in Florence. All is unique there: the atmosphere, the staff, many small attentions provided. We very much liked this place because it is like being in a large Florentine home of the past where we could continue the experience of all the beautiful historic sites of the city. The room was very comfortable indeed, equipped with all the amenities of an expensive hotel , including fresh flowers and a basket of fruit with a welcome card, good speed wi-fi,. We enjoyed good hot water, good air conditioning and the room was absolutely quiet. We felt well taken care of. The staff was always happy to answer all our questions and did provide an invaluable help in arranging our visits to the various sites, including placing all the reservations we needed. I remember Riccardo for the good restaurant suggestions, joyful Rolando’s assistance in sorting out our tours and getting our trains and busses sorted out and delightful Maurizio and Ertol for their courtesy and attentions throughout. Antique furniture everywhere, even tea-pots and coffee jugs at breakfast were antique silverware. I couldn’t imagine, in Florence, sating anywhere else.

We loved our time in Florence, what a city! Our accomodation at hotel morandi was very good, our room was quite big by european hotel standards( although our shower was definitely the smallest of the trip... But still worked fine!). Our travelling companions had some difficulties with their bank and the hotel team were really helpful. We also booked a tour of tuscany through them and it was easy and the trip was great. The breakfast was nice and the little dining room really cute. Most nights we had little chocolates on our bedside table, fresh flowers and fresh fruit which we have not got anywhere else. The staff are very professional and friendly... Highly recommend.

This was a very good choice. This small hotel provided excellent accommodation and very valuable assistance. Right from making our booking the hotel was exhaustive of our request of information and took care of our museum entrance reservations. The hotel is filled with original antiques and the atmosphere is that of an old gentile Italian home, which very much added to our visit to Florence. Our room was facing the street, but was quiet and we slept very well. We had all we could possibly need, including free wi-fi at a reasonable speed. Breakfast was good and served from antique silverware. If was intriguing being served coffee one morning from the art deco coffee pot, the other morning from the Georgian one and so on. The staff is delightful and efficient. My wife and myself both agreed that this hotel will certainly be our first choice in a future trip to Florence.

We had only one night in Florence at the historic Hotel Morandi Alla Crocetta and it was a fine choice for us. The location is great - - really could not be better - - just a short walk to all of the major interest areas. The hotel is unique - historic, quiet and interesting to explore. The breakfast service was excellent; and the staff offered us a fabulous off-the-beaten-track suggestion for dinner. Our room was small - and adjacent to the lobby – so not exactly a choice location - but it did have windows overlooking the street. If we had been staying longer, I would have upgraded to a larger room - - but for one-night – considering the character and perks – it was good!

I would love to give this hotel a better review because the staff was wonderful and the location was fabulous! However, the smell in this building is so bad my sinuses were a mess -- and I never have allergy problems! We were given what looked like the worst room location they had despite paying the higher rate, with the bedroom door right off the lobby. Certainly no sign of a patio and no screens on window so we could not leave the window open because of mosquitoes. They issued us a mosquito coil to burn in our room at night because there were some inside the room already when we arrived but I didn't use it because you had to pour a toxic gel over a burning coil -- not exactly the welcome you want at a nice hotel! The bedding and pillows were old and dirty and the first thing I did was strip off the dingy bedspread. It is a very well located hotel and very quaint in and old world way, but fresh air and new fresh clean bedding would go a long way to improve this place. I would not stay here again for sure, but my husband, who loves to camp, thought it was a cool experience -- although he also felt it needed a bedding update for sure. Overall a cool monastery building, but they could easily do just a little more to make it a lot better.

Room Tip: Request to NOT have one of the two tiny rooms that open into the front lobby and have their window o...

Excellent hotel on all accounts. Large comfortable rooms, meticulously clean, lovely sitting areas and courtyard. Unbeatable location - 5 minutes from the Duomo but on a very quiet street. Staff was lovely and helpful. We would love to come back again!

Room Tip: Near the lobby.

I am a bit late on this reveiw. We stayed at Hotel Morandi Alla Crocetta in Spetember 2011. We were lucky enough to have the "chapel room". The staff was very personable, breakfast was wonderful, the room was quiet and cool in spite of 90 degree F temps during the day. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Florence
