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

This was our home base for our tour group during a tour of Tuscany. The rooms were pleasant and clean and the beds were comfortable. We could easily walk to shops and to the funicular. The dinners were average but the food was plentiful. The breakfasts were above average and the yogurt bread was delicious. We mistakenly thought the advertised pools were swimming pools but they are not. However the indoor one is a very relaxing spa pool. You have to make a reservation to use it and there is an additional fee unless you also book a spa treatment. The front desk staff was not particularly welcoming or helpful. Fortunately our tour guide buffered that one drawback for us.

This was the third stop we made on our tour in Europe, our travel agency Gate 1 Travel setup us in this hotel the second week in October. This was my wife’s and my favorite hotel on our journey hands down. When we checked in again our agency booked us in the smallest room with no view of anything in a twin bed. I explained to the young lady at the front desk this was our 10 Year Anniversary and Agency again put us in the wrong accommodations, she was Amazing and moved up to a wonderful room with a nice large bed and a great view of the court yard with a nice patio. This room was nice and spacious, and finally had a restroom that had a shower large enough that you could stand up in, the bed was perfect, the bedding and pillows were perfect, everything was perfect. The room was a bit warm, so I asked the young lady at the front desk if something could be done, and she immediately turned on the air so we could have a great nights rest. It was wonderful to finally be somewhere where the room and environment was PERFECT! The breakfast was fabulous, the in the evening there is a rooftop bar / seating area where we watched the sunset and relaxed. We were so happy with the location, in walking distance to the train station and all the local tourist attractions. If you are looking for a nice hotel in Florence, Italy look no further.

My husband and I booked to stay 5 nights at this hotel in October 2017, we cancelled due to change of plans. The hotel did a pre authorisation on our credit card and part of the conditions were no fees to cancel. We contacted the hotel and they canceled with no issues and would refund the pre authorisation security deposit. We were told this would be refunded in one week. It’s been now 22 days and we are still waiting for the refund to process. I have contacted the hotel and no response. This is really poor service considering we didn’t stay at the hotel. Please be warned about this. Bank advised hotels will now take 31 days to refund but, the hotel can process quicker providing they send all relevant details to the bank. Regards Tanya
