Croce Di Malta Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Spent five nights at this nice hotel. Friendly, personable staff. Comfortable rooms.. ask for a garden facing room to avoid street noise. Rooms are well appointed, baths decently size. Hotel is 3 blocks from the train station and a 20-30 minute taxi ride (fixed price 24 Euros) from the airport. Plenty to see and do within easy walking distance. Hotel has a rooftop bar that operates from 4-? daily. Breakfast was included in room rate.. both European and American foods available.

The hotel is more classic than modern but set in an excellent location not far from the station. Easy to walk into Florence and see the sights. Room was a good size and overlooked the swimming pool. There was a good selection at breakfast but some things ran out quite early and the scrambled eggs were rather congealed. Staff helpful and tri-lingual. Would probably stay there again.

This hotel is in a great central location in Florence and with lots of eateries nearby. I did not eat in the restaurant but had room service and it was really nice. The room was beautiful and the bed and pillows were sooooo comfy. The bathroom was spacious and lots of shelf space for toiletries. The laundry service is VERY expensive but I had already sent it off before I realised there was a laundromat just up the street !! I found the staff to be quite stand offish and although helpful when asked they did not go out of their way to accommodate you or be friendly. Breakfast was OK ... about what I think is the usual Italian hotel breakfast. The pastries were probably a bit above average. I came in and out of Florence on the train and with Santa Maria Novella station being literally just around the corner it was perfect. I would stay here again.

Things change in old hotels. I have stayed here about 20 times and things always change. This time we were treated to wonderful new comfy beds, walls redecorated, and a large flat screen magnificent TV. The owners are a family of wonderful people. One of them asked my opinion and I told him the renovations were magnificent!!!!! Breakfast is now served in an more open, lighted area at the back, but that had been that way for a while now, but I really appreciated it more for some reason. Hey, folks, I love this hotel, the lounge areas, the friendly knowledgable reception staff, the entrance, now the rooms are even better, the breakfast is superb. I would never stay anywhere else in Florence which I have visited yearly for the past decade.

Quality hotel right in the city centre. Clean rooms, helpful and efficient staff, comfy beds all topped off with a wide range of breakfast choices. Roof terrace affords a great view of the cityscape... excellent value for money. Florence in January means that you can visit all the sights, most within walking distance from the hotel, without the clamour of thousands of people hampering your view or creating long queues to access the best renaissance paintings, architecture and fresco's. There are also an abundance of excellent restaurants with good food and fine wine to finish each day all within a few minutes of the hotel. Stayed for four days and covered a lot of miles and attractions. This is not enough time to appreciate all that Florence offers so we will return for another short break some time soon.

The hotel is renovated recently and located perfectly in the historic Center of Florence. The price is good although the first three days it was overpriced due to men fashion week. The room is clean but no coffee or tea nor water were provided. The breakfast is a bit poor. But the overall experience was very good.

The Croce di Malta hotel was quaint and friendly. Excellent service and food at the hotel was good. Walking around the city is very easy and the train station was less then 5 minutes away. Nestled on a semi-quiet street, there are many stores and restaurants near by and the Ponte Vecchio is about a 10 minute walk. Hotel was in a good location and lots to see and do in Florence.

We travelled as a family of 6. We stayed in a family room - it was very comfortable and the hotel accommodated us with an extra bed. I appreciated the very clean bathrooms! Food was delicious but I thought a bit on the expensive side. No facilities to make your own tea/coffee. We had a pleasant stay and will stay there again.

We stayed here during the New Year holiday and we really enjoyed it. The rooms are really large; ours was arranged on two floors-a living room downstairs and a bedroom and a bathroom upstairs and it had a certain coziness to it. We really appreciate the fact that the room has its own heating/ventilation system so the room was warm enough). The breakfast has plenty of choices, so they fit any taste. The staff was very nice and helpful, we really liked that. I also have to say that the hotel is situated near the city centre so one can easily reach the main objectives of the city. All in all, we had a really pleasant stay here and we would definitely come back.

We stayed two night in Hotel. It is located at the center of everything it is walking distance to most of the attractions and to the railway station. The service was just good and was simple. The hotel in general is clean
