Mariangela was a very warm and welcoming host. She spends breakfast at the B&B every morning and is very helpful with any questions and or recommendations. The breakfast itself was the best we had during our 3 week trip in italy and provided a variety of options, not just the usually meat, cheese and pastry that most places offer. We took a cooking class with her and enjoyed it very much (both the interactive shopping for ingredients as well as the cooking of the ingredients).

Concerning the physical location, how "good" it is will vary with the traveler. It is in an area with a large student population and on weekends they can be loud and rowdy. This did not bother us as we tend to stay out later and didn't leave our windows open. This b&b is very close to a large market and is within walking distance to all of the main attractions in the city center. I would recommend a cab to and from the main train station though.

Three of the rooms are very cute and well put together and spacious enough for anyone who doesn't plan on spending a lot of time in their room. The fourth room is on the "top" floor and has a very steep stairwell between the bathroom and the bedroom as well as very low ceilings. This is the room we stayed in. My wife and I are both about 5'8" and could only stand up straight in the center of the room. So if you are tall, claustrophobic, or have trouble with steep stairs, make sure to request one of the 3 other rooms.

We took a cooking class and it was a wonderful! We strolled through the market and had appetizers. The sights and smells were awesome. The bed and breakfast was located in a great area of town. Really close to everywhere you need to go. The owners were very accommodating and very genuine. It was overall a fantastic experience!

I was looking for a one day cooking class in Florence-Firenze when I discovered this B&B.
Mariangela was v accommodating with my last minute request and we arranged to meet the next day at her B&B in the morning. I met two lovely sisters from South Africa and proceeded to discuss the menu and away we went on our adventure to find the best ingredients for our meal.

Mariangela has been doing this for the last 12 years and she is v knowledgeable on Florence, the food, culture and it helps she is Italian. Her English was perfect and she even printed the receipes in English at the end of the course. She plans on doing a cookbook but is in the process of writing all of the receipes down as they are in her head. = ) The food, class, wine and company were fantastic! The class is great and if you stay the B&B you probably gain alot more. It def felt like home away rom home.

My family and I stayed at Mariangela's Le Stanze di Santa Groce during our vacation in June to Italy. I would say that the place was one of the best we had in Italy with the owner Mariangela being so warm, courteous, helpful and pleasant; it really was one of the best experiences we had. The room provided to us was exactly what was shown wonderful, with a nice bed for our daughter, air-condition, attached / ensuite Bathroom. We were also given access to her wonderful balcony / terrace garden in the evenings ( where breakfast which was awesome was served every morning). Our trip to Florence would never ever had been this enjoyable had it not been for Mariangela, and her very well located Santa Croce apartment, which was very comfortable and highly recommended. We met atleast 3other guests, some of whom had stayed at other places, but swore that they shared our views that this place was indeed the best. Highly recommended to travellers who want an excellent place to stay.

Room Tip: Please ask Mariangela for the room with an attached balcony. Very good for couples.

My sister and I recently did the Florentine Flavours course through Epiculinary. We stayed in Le Stanze di Santa Croce in Florence with Mariangela. It is a lovely B & B and we felt right at home. The dinner on the day of our arrival, guided walk through Florence as well as the cooking class with Mariangela was an unforgettable experience. The B & B is clean and cosy and breakfasts were lovely with great Italian coffee, cheeses, meats, freshly baked bread and homemade jams. We will definitely stay there again when we visit Florence.

The location, the rooms, the decoration, the details, the breakfast, the service and the owner (Mariangela) make this romantic B&B an amazing experience. Every detail from the reservation to the check-out, makes one feel welcomed and well treated. Breakfast is delicious! In our opinion, the rates for high season are a little bit over-priced. But this is definetely a place worth staying at.

La ubicación, las habitaciones, la decoración, los detalles, el desayuno, el servicio y la dueña Mariangela), hacen de este romántico B&B una experiencia extraordinaria. Cada detalle desde la reservación hasta el momento del chek-out, lo hacen a uno sentir bienvenido y muy bien tratado. El desayuno es delicioso! En nuestra opinión, las tarifas de temporada alta son un poco costosas. Pero, este es un sitio en el que definitivamente vale la pena quedarse.

Room Tip: The rooms on the second floor are the best. Los cuartos en el segundo piso son los mejores.
