Very good hotel in a historic building. Basilica Santa Croce is just round the corner, and Piazza Della Signoria and the Bargello are a stone's throw away. Short walk to the Duomo and the Accademia. A big thank you to Gabrielle and Mario for making my stay such a comfortable one (to Gabrielle - the smiley face in the morning cappuccino is a very nice touch!). Comfortable rooms with, among other things, air-conditioning (of utmost importance in the sweltering Firenze summer heat) and LCD TV. Breakfast is very European - not lavish but serves the purpose. In summary, this is a great place in a truly lovely city. If and when I return to Firenze, I will not hesitate one bit to book this place again.
- 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
