Fantastic location with 5* service from Mario & Gabriele.
We arrived in Florence by car & our GPS couldn't find the hotel location. We called them & despite their good explanation of directions we still couldn't find the correct street - Gabriele came running from the hotel to find us, stopped the traffic so we could reverse back & directed us to the hotel. They instantly arranged for our car to be picked up & taken to a safe & secure garage ($25 for 24hrs) as parking in Florence is a nightmare.
Drinks on arrival were a lovely welcome & they provided us with a helpful map & gave us some great recommendations & information.
The room & bathroom were super clean & comfortable with good AC & decent shower. The room & bathroom are small but that's because they are in a wonderful old building in an excellent location & walking distance to all the main sights.
Breakfast starts at 7am which was helpful if you want to get going early to beat the masses of tourists.
Cheap beer, water & other drinks available to buy & they gave us some complementary drinks as we left.
Reception is 24hrs so you don't have to worry about numerous keys or door codes.
Great value for money & would highly recommend.
Thanks Mario & Gabriele for a memorable stay.
- 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
