We just came back from a 4 night stay in Hotel Privilege, Florence. The location was just perfect. It's in the historical center but away from the noise and congestion. Our room had a view of Piazza Michaelangelo over the Arno. Hotel Privilege is in the Santa Croce area and within walking distance of both sides of the river, Santa...

Pros: A very nice breakfast spread. A friendly staff. Free wifi (although the connection isn't great). The rooms are large and well put together. There are plenty of chairs and couches throughout the hotel to sit and wait for your friends to get ready. There is a back garden and sitting area. Cons: No iron in the room. The aforementioned...

The staff was ok, not very friendly. The breakfast wasn't that great. Money went missing from our room when the maid came (we didn't want our room to be cleaned in the first place) and the managers didn't do anything about it. The rooms were a good size and it was kind of close to city center. Definitely not the...

So, if you like cosy and friendly atmosphere, I...

Very personable service and warm accommodations. Manuel and Barbara were TOPS in our books. The breakfast accompanied by the Latin music in the morning made our hearts happy. Best yogurt and healthy options We have encountered of all the hotels we stayed in Italy. Lots of ambiance and care from the owners. We would definitely stay there again upon our...

Easily accessible by car, staff was ok, rooms fairly large and clean. Breakfast was ok-ish, but nothing exceptional I would say. Coffee quality way below what one could expect in Italy. We reserved, quoting, "room with patio access", but as it turned out, there is no patio access from the rooms and additionally, its closed because of winter. Rooms were...

Very pleasant hotel. Don't expect anything fancy, but expect: a big, room with comfortable bed, nice bathroom, breakfast with products of good quality and great cakes (obviously home-made, some still warm in the morning). Bedclothes, towels - clean and frequently changed. Tea-making facilities. Good wifi. Good air-conditioning. Great location, five minutes walk to Santa Croce and numerous bars, pubs and...

Stayed here for 4 nights. I wish I would have caught the couples name that worked there, very friendly and so helpful. I thought breakfast was great with a lot of selection. It is a good walk to center of Florence. The only negative I have to report (and I hate to do that) but the room we had the...

Staying in Santa Croce

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night. Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the Central National Library. As a hub for young people, the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated by songs and dances.

“Some rooms offer great view on the river, but may be a bit noisy, as they overlook a rather busy street.”
