It is a good walk to center of Florence. The only negative I have to report (and I hate to do that) but the room we had the... More

Emmanuelle was warm and welcoming for tired travellers, who had not been sleeping well for a number of nights. The room was large and clean, with a good size bathroom, the towels are simply lovely. After four weeks of travel, the beds were comfortable and the room cosy against the cold nights. Breakfast is generous, with a wide range items... More

We escaped another hotel and checked in around 8:30 pm. Barbara was warm and welcoming and recommended an excellent restaurant nearby Baldovino. She also marked up a map showing us how to walk to see all the places we wanted to. Breakfast was plentiful, cappuccino excellent, rooms clean and spacious. The hotel is close enough to walk everywhere and quiet... More

We used his hotel as our hub for our stay in Florence. Our travel group told us we could easily walk here from the train station. Um. No. It is almost 3.5 KM from the train station. Toting luggage for 2 weeks in Italy, I just don't think so. The busses in Florence were impossible to figure out. Thankfully the... More

I am in Florence 6-9 times a year and this hotel is like home away from home. Always find a room for me and nothing is too much trouble. Centrally located and the hosts Emmanuele and Babara are immense and family friends now... Highly recommended - once you gave stayed you will keep coming back

Staying in Santa Croce

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night. Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the Central National Library. As a hub for young people, the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated by songs and dances.
