Fine in Firenze
Excellent location - walkable to everything. Classic old building that’s been nicely and elegantly renovated.

Very Good8.0
All good, except for a solid 'Soufflé'!
Charming, helpful staff. My 'Junior Suite' was less of a suite than the one booked for my mother, but with spectacular views nonetheless. More of a large room really, but my mother loved hers. Dinner in Dinner in the Guelfi & Ghibellini (we were the only two) was sensationally good at the first and main course stage, with desert a frankly crashing disappointment. We suspect the chef had gone home after our main course, as a supposed Raspberry Soufflé turned out to be a 'unique to Santa Croce', stodgy pudding accompanied by an overly-complex explanation from an embarrassed Maître d'. Anyway, 1st World problems. The hotel is beautiful, and ideally located.

Amazing experience!
The hotel was an amazing experience and one of our highlights of Florence. They gave us a tour of the hotel at check-in and the service only got better from there. The service is exceptional and the concierge was always available and very helpful. The hotel itself is beautiful and truly feels luxurious. Our only small complaint is that the beds were pretty hard.
