Hotel Description

We’re well aware that you come here to see the sights, and that the crowds are part of the experience; but in Florence, perhaps even more than any other town, the highest form of luxury is an escape from the often-overwhelming city outside. And it’s hard to think of a hotel that more perfectly fits that bill than the Relais Santa Croce, a discreetly elegant 17th-century palazzo adjacent to the Basilica Santa Croce.

The old house is meticulously preserved, and still period-correct in its style and atmosphere — though beneath that antique surface it’s as contemporary a luxury hotel as any in town. That, along with the Relais’s intimate vibe and professional service, would be more than enough for most guests, but the Santa Croce has another ace up its sleeve in the form of Guelfi e Ghibellini, one of Florence’s most highly regarded restaurants.

In the better rooms you’ll have a terrace, possibly with a view over the rooftops of Florence; and while none of them are enormously oversized, they’re more than spacious enough for a bit of lounging when the streets have grown too busy. Meanwhile, when it’s time to hit the pavement, you’re essentially right at the heart of it all, on the eastern end of Florence’s ancient center, walking distance from everything you came here to see.
