Croce Di Malta Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Would really give it a 3.5 stars but the location gets a 4. The breakfast is average but sufficient with some some hot food. The pool area is small but nice enough. All a bit rustic and dated. However it is also charming in parts. The rooms are large and tidy enough. The service is very good and staff are all friendly and particularly at reception. The breakfast ladies seem a little stressed at times. Convenient location near station and right next to the centre. The best thing about the hotel is without doubt the rooftop terrace bar with great views and a lovely cooling breeze in the summer heat.

After 4 nights in typical European small room hotels on our tour, this place was paradise. Large rooms (with air conditioning in May before it is officially allowed), full bathtub and shower. The hotel restaurant has good food and service. pool is available as is a bar with a separate quiet room with TV. Rooftop bar early evening for a look across/over Florence and a drink. Fantastic place to stay.

THe Hotel was great the perfect location, easy access to the major tourist attractions, easy access to the central train station has some great restaurants near by that are not the usual tourist trap. The hotel staff were polite, hard working and always available to help. The breakfast was basic but always plentiful and never of low quality. They did a basic breakfast well. The pool wait was not over crowed on my stay. The roof top Bar offered great via of the city and really captured the romance of the city. The local area was alive at night with the people relaxing into the evening at the local square, with live music and very welcoming locals. I loved my staff and would defiantly return again.

This hotel had all the necessary amenities for our stay, the best part was it was very close to the train station and was walking distance from lots of restaurants, bars, shops, and attractions. The only downside was that the internet connection wasn't always great but the staff is lovely and very helpful

My wife and I spent a week at this hotel. The first few days were so hot (96f) but the pool was an oasis. Drinks delivered with style. The room had air conditioning and a comfortable bed. The hotel staff were very helpful ( Federica was tops), suggesting dinner and sightseeing options that turned out great! I love the location of the hotel for walking the city. And the sunset from the hotel rooftop is magical.

Quite an expensive hotel - still airconditioning not working for the first 3 days and found the plumber in our room without a notice from the Reception. With a price more than 200 euros a night, you expect more. Nice Staff and a quiet room😊.

We had a fantastic time in Florence! Croce Di Malta Hotel is very clean, comfortable, near the best sites in Florence and near the central railway station. Really good breakfast. After long walks and sightseeing we enjoyed relaxing in the swimming pool having cold drinks. Very friendly and helpful hotel staff. We have to thank mainly Valentino who is such a professional and gentleman.

We had booked for june 10th and they cancelled our reservation 10 days before we arrived for what reason, we don't know. They said there was an issue with the credit card, which there wasnt and gave me 2 days to respond. I didnt see the email until it was too late. My guess is they overbooked the rooms or were really full and they realized they could sell the rooms again and not pay their commission. Either way it really screwed us.

Hotel just a short walk from Florence railway station easily found with phone GPS takes about 10-15 minutes. Hotel itself has an old fashioned feel and this is not a bad thing, our room was on 4th floor and had a balcony overlooking Florence absolutely lovely. Room itself had quaint touches old fashioned night stands and trouser trays which only added to the room, spacious wardrobes and plenty of storage. Bed comfortable and there was a small fridge. Bathroom had shower no bath but not an issue for us, a hair dryer is supplied but is old and fixed to the wall so not ideal and also girlfriend commented that mirror isn't by plugpoint which apparently isn't great for straighteners.. Roof terrace is amazing open from 6pm-9pm and has 360 view of Florence breathtaking. Drinks are reasonably priced at hotel and food also good value. Our long weekend was amazing and cannot recommend this hotel highly enough for its location to everything..will be back.

Unfortunately, we had a short 2-night stay, so we didn't have time to enjoy a swimming area, but I would like to come back and try it. The hotel looked very nice. The room was nice and comfy. The breakfast room was spacious and had a nice view. And the food variety was big. I would like to come back.
