“Nice hotel with wonderful terrace”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014 via mobile

Hotel is nice and rooms are ok . Room 501 has a great private terrace over viewing the city!
Minus that you have to walk from 4th floor to 5th
On top there is a terrace open to all guests with a bar with 360 degrees view !

Stayed 3 nights during may 2014. Room adequately furnished for an old world hotel. Very noisy road to frontage, traffic and public disturbance all night.
Nice garden to the rear of hotel, quiet and secluded.
Breakfast was a problem every day, too many guests and not enough staff. Had to grab what was left while it was available.

Room Tip: Select a room at the rear if you want a good nights sleep.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

Croce di Malta is very convenient to the Santa Maria Novella train station; that's why we chose it. We only stayed one night, as planned. The hotel ambiance is very pleasant; and the hotel is conveniently located close to the touristic center of Florence. There was no air conditioning; and opening the windows let in mosquitoes almost immediately. Mosquito repelling devices were available from the reception desk; but they didn't work so well. The breakfast area is totally inadequate for the number of guests. It's crowded; and nothing seemed to work sufficiently quick enough to handle the demand. The staff was quite kind; but over-worked. No complaints about any of the staff workers we encountered anywhere.

Room Tip: Try a room off the main street--in the inner court. Ours was on the street and noisy.

The Croce di Malta Hotel is conveniently located near the train station and behind the Santa Maria Novella. It is ideally situated and within walking distance of all the great monuments and museums. There is just so much to see in Florence and suggest you take the time to relax and visit the Florence Market and admire the gardens of the Palazzo Pitti.

The Croce di Malta Hotel staff is most courteous and professional and have nothing but compliments to shower on them. The room was large and clean and gave right away on Via della Scala. Internet service was probably one of the best and fastest connections that I experienced during my trip in Italy. However, since I was on vacation, I was not too keen to check my emails frequently.

The only regret I have is that I did not have a chance to experience the roof top terrace and admire the view, as the terrace is only open during the summer. Perhaps next time...

This hotel is very conveniently located. Just one block from Santa Maria Novella. It is near all major attractions in Florence. The breakfast is good, the staff is very polite and the restaurant offers very nice dishes at night. I would recommend it because it was never necessary to take a taxi or a bus to move around Florence!

Quaint rooms, great central location, friendly service. Incredible happy hours in the hotel bar, and the adjacent restaurant has some delicious dishes. I've stayed here more than 10 times over the past 20 years and am never disappointed.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2014

Stayed for 4 nights on a business trip.

Room was clean and amenities of good quality but rather basic and certainly not luxurious.
Rather noisy in the night mainly because of some 'very happy' tourists walking the streets in the early hours of the morning.
Location to explore Florence historic centre is excellent and convenient to visit the region via bus or train.
The only disappointing aspect was the breakfast offered, which I found below average in terms of variety and quality of ingredients.
On the plus side room size was above average compared to other similar price hotels in Florence.
Staff always very friendly and happy to help and answer any queries.
