The room was very comfortable and spotless, everything was organized at perfection.
There were beautiful high quality amenities in the bathroom.
A nice hand written welcome card and some fresh delicious complimentary petit four were delivered at our room.
We had breakfast included in our room rate and it was amazing – breakfasts in Italian hotels are not usually the high point of the day but this breakfast buffet was so diverse and fresh that I cannot imagine anyone being disappointed. You can special order items too – Eggs Benedict for example – if you wish. Prosecco is on the buffet and we loved starting the day with a glass of that.
We ate dinner there one night and had a delicious meal, beautifully served. One of the dishes I had was the risotto al Lampredotto. It was wonderful but about twice what I could eat. Suggest asking for a half portion!!
We will definitely go back to the Relais Santa Croce the next time we go to Florence and cannot recommend it highly enough.
