Loved staying here for a night. The 2 brothers that own it are incredibly friendly and helpful. The room are comfortable and clean though small as is the staircase. No elevators so prepare to climb some stairs. Worth it though. Breakfast was delicious. Woderfull stay. Plus it's walking distance to Palazzo Vecchio and all other attractions in Florence.

This is a great historic hotel right in the heart of Florence making it easy to walk to every major attraction. I stayed here on my first visit and decided to return for a second visit. The staff is very helpful and welcoming. The breakfast is simple but delicious. I highly recommend this hotel.

My family and I, (four adults) stayed here in late July 2016. This is a very well-run budget hotel in a great location for exploring Florence. The hotel is situated in a historic building near the house where Michelangelo lived. It is a small hotel, the rooms are compact to say the least but entirely adequate. The owner Gabriele and...

This was an amazing experience for our first time in Florence. From the minute we walked in, Mario was professional and kind. He gave us a warm welcome, gave us our room key, and immediately gave us detailed instructions regarding what attractions to see and when to see them. He was very helpful. Simone also worked at the front desk... More

The staff at the Santa Croce Hotel were amazing. My mother and I stayed in Florence for nine days and by the end of our trip, we felt very at home and were treated like family by the staff.

Turned up unannounced with sister... No problem... Asked for help on many fronts... No problem... No gluten breakfast... No problem... The owner and his team could not have been MORE helpful or welcoming. If you like 'small is beautiful' and the personal touch (like seeing the same faces welcome you each day) then this is for you.

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
