We had a great stay at this hotel! Location is absolutely terrific, staff is very friendly! Gabriele and Mario are wonderful people, they were always very helpful. We lost our luggage for 5 days, and every day they would call the airline to inquire about our luggage. We really appreciated it. Breakfast there was wonderful, great coffee and hot chocolate :) Room was good and clean. The bathroom a little on the small side (not for me, but for my husband who is 6 ft 5), but that is a very minor thing. Considering how old the building was, it was very well kept, beautiful and clean. Overall, we were very lucky to stay at this hotel, would definitely recommend staying and if we are ever in Florence again, we would consider to stay at Hotel Santa Croce again without the second thought!
- 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
