“A lovely hotel in an excellent location!!”
Reviewed March 16, 2012

The first thing to say about this hotel is the excellent staff - willing to help you with whatever you need. The location is also brilliant, as it is right in the historical centre, walking distance from all the main attractions. The rooms are obviously basic, but have everything you need - tv, hairdryer etc. I couldn't fault the place and would definitely return!!! It made my stay in Florence even more special.

Very good location, walking distance from all major sights. A room on ground floor available (which exactly we received), the closest to breakfast place :) Pretty chocolates presented for Befana day :)

Towels were not supplied in full from the beginning (appeared next day :)) Breakfast is quite poor and standard from day to day. Only 1 euro-socket available in the room (taken from the air-conditioner).

This place recently transferred ownership to two brothers who are two of the nicest people you'll ever meet. They are the kind of Italians that are very warm and welcoming and will go out of their way to accommodate you. I had an issue (that had nothing to do with the hotel) and one of them was really so kind to me and completely went out of his way to help me out. The world needs more people like this! A very excellent price for a hotel in Florence. The rooms are basic and very clean. The hot water lasted (and I take long showers) and the water pressure was excellent. The breakfast is coffee, croissant and yogurt. We never made it down in time, but they still happily provided it. Once they even brought it up to our room, which I thought was so nice, esp. as we were on the last floor and they don't have an elevator. They keep cost down by only having maid service every 3 nights. But if you ask nicely for an extra pillow or towel, they will likely give it to you. They speak good English. The location is excellent, 3 min. walking distance to the Ufizzi and Accademia museums and main squares. There are tons of restaurants nearby as well. There's also a butcher shop where you can get a panino (great fresh sandwich) for about 3 euros down the street they can direct you to. And a vintage shop around the corner. If your into history, definitely check out the Santa Croce Church in the nearby plaza. It's basically a burial site for famous/important Italians like Galileo, Machiavelli, and Rossini, with an adjoining museum. There are also at least 3-4 clubs/lounges around the corner that seemed pretty active at night. But the street noise didn't reach the hotel. I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to friends!

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
