Croce Di Malta Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

While there are fancier places to stay in Florence, this was a decent place to stay for the price. The room we had could have benefited from an updating, it was large and had a nice balcony overlooking the pool.

A short walk from the main station. I did this during all times of the day and it was safe. There's many hotels along this street + a few restaurants. The room was good, close to the elevator. Only two issues were the european plug would only work in one powerpoint next to the minibar fridge, anywhere else meant that when you turned the lights off to go to sleep, the powerpoint would be off too - so that was a little inconvenient when theres 2 people's phone's to be charged. Also the curtains would make a awful screech noise when they were drawn. So just don't pull the curtains 😂 Breakfast was continental style with lots of seating area indoors and outdoors. Must mention the rooftop view which is fantastic with a glass of prosecco! We wish it would stay open longer to see the sun set

i love going to old hotels that were converted from another use at some point in the past. Croce di Malta was a convent up until the mid 1,800's and they did a fabulous job on the re-do. For me it's the little things like making sure that i don't hear all the partiers on the street level while trying to sleep. To that end they actually installed 2 sets of dual glazed windows on the street side. Nobody, but nobody does this because it's super expensive to do! (We're talking about 4 panes of glass The fact that they do this speaks volumes for them. Nothing but good things to say for their excellent staff.

Central location, splendid view from the roof terrace (pity they close it at night, would make for interesting photography or a romantic date). Rooms are simple but adequate and cosy, not more and not less than one needs after an exhausting day rambling through Firenze. Free wifi was a plus. The breakfast was surprisingly sumptuous (full English + all kinds of cakes, yoghurts, fruits, breads etc.), enabling us to get through the day with only a light lunch.

This was an excellent hotel ... comfortable rooms, lovely garden and wonderful breakfast! Staff very friendly ... but best of all was its location. All the main sites of interest are just a walk away. Just off a pretty square with good restaurants, yet very handy for railway station, too.

I arrived at this hotel after a terrible experience at Minerva Hotel and I was very welcomed there. Without a reservation they offered me a triple room, very traditional, Florence style. They have a beautiful terrace and I imagine it might be nice during summer time. I have been there February 2016, during the chocolate fair. I did not like the breakfast tough. Very nice staff makes a stay so pleasant!

Be sure to get on that rooftop terrace! Best views of Florence are there, What an amazing time! It is also a great value for money and how easy it is to walk to the train station and to downtown makes it really the ideal place to stay. Far enough from the center not to feel suffocated by tourists but close enough to walk to it within 5minutes. Ask for Silvia, she was an angel taking care of us! Our room was spacious and clean and nicely decorated. Had a lovely balcony and a very comfortable bed. They also automatically provided extra covers and pillows, which somehow always seems to be tricky to find in Europe. I forgot my toothbrush and in under a minute they had one at my doorstep. The breakfast was great and plenty and their restaurant amazing. I must say, hands down, best Carbonara pasta I have had in my life! so simple yet so unique. I say try their restaurants for sure.

Front desk staff were helpful and kind. Rooftop view was very nice and got some great photos. Would be very nice when the bar is open in summer. However, rooms are extraordinarily dated and stuffy. not many amenities available in the room (ie. could not iron clothes), bathrooms extremely small, few towels. Design not great.

Having selected this hotel for its proximity to the Railway Station, we were pleasantly surprised with the quality and service that the hotel offered. It is in a great location (the Uffizi Galleries were only 15 mnutes away on foot), and the view across the Piazza was really good. The breakfast buffet was as you would expect, but the highlight for us was the rooftop bar. Its a great spot to enjoy a glass or two of Proseccon whist looking over at the Duomo and Palazzo Pitti whilst watching the sul go down behind the Tuscan Hills. The staff were very helpful and we found this to be a good place to relax in between taking in all the tourist attraction Florence has to offer.

This is a good 3 - 4 Star Hotel in a great location just off the Piazza Santa Maria Novella. Less that 10 mins walk to the train station. 10 minutes walk to the Florence Cathedral. 15 minutes walk to Michelangelo's David. 20 minutes walk to the Ponte Vecchio. The room rates were reasonable for Winter in Italy. The rooms themselves were a little tired, however we didn't mind as our holiday hotel requirements are pretty basic as we don't spend much time there. ie. 1. Great bed. 2. Quiet & Safe location. 3. Close to the attractions. 4, Reasonable price. The Croce di Malta Hotel met all of these perfectly.
