I have been to Florence a dozen times and have always stayed in the same hotel. Not this time, we decided to stay here! What a Gem, located right by Santa Croce church it was perfect. The staff was very friendly and helpful-especially Gabriel. The included breakfast is good and simple. The only negative I could come up with the... More

I was surprised this was a "2*". It was great. On reception had a lovely greeting and lots of helpful tips about the attractions in Florence. There were also some good recommendations for local restaurants and the staff willingly made bookings on our behalf when requested. My husband had stayed here 3 years ago and described a dish he really... More

This family run intimate hotel was an excellent choice for us. The staff was very welcoming, friendly and helpful. It is located very close to the heart of Florence on a small side street that Michelangelo lived on as a child. It is surrounded by many small leather shops and close to the Leather Workshop behind the Sante Croce Chuch... More

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.

We booked this hotel while on the road in Italy and liked the reviews. We weren't disappointed. We had a great welcome and the position of the hotel was just perfect.

Dear Michael, we are so happy you had a very great time here. Thank you for your review and for appreciating, as rightly you have understood, that a stay in a hotel situated in the heart of art and history may naturally be accompanied by some little, background "inconveniences", typical of all listed buildings in the Historical Centre of Florence....

Very welcoming and helpful. As everyone has said - the room was small and not loads of space, but it's an old building, and having read all the other reviews you know to expect that! Nevertheless it was very comfortable. Good location 20 mins walk (with our bags) from the station and at the heart of Florence.

We had an amazing time in Florence and Gabriele was so helpful in getting us to places while we were there! Breakfast was delicious and we just felt like we were at home! We had a girls trip and this hotel is centrally located and within walking distance of many local sights. We will definitely be back! 😉😀

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
