Relais Santa Croce
(5 Star Hotels) Firenze
A stunning 5 star hotel situated in the immediate vicinity of the Basilica of Santa Croce, on Florence's Via Ghibellini, Relais Santa Croce occupies one of the city's most prestigious historic buildings: the 18th century Palazzo Cioffi-Jacometti, edifice originally commissioned by the Pope's treasurer, the Marquis Baldinucci.
During the extensive restoration work carried out prior to the building's transformation in luxury hotel, a great number of precious artworks were uncovered, artworks which now grace the elegant public rooms and guest bedrooms characterised by wood panelling, lavish textiles, and unique items of period furniture. The "Da Verrazzano" and "Dei Pepi" Royal Suites, complete with marble bathrooms with Jacuzzi tub and private, in-suite fitness zone, feature magnificent high ceilings embellished with beautifully restored frescoes dating back to the period in which Palazzo Cioffi-Jacometti was built.
Excellent Tuscan cuisine is served at Relais Santa Croce's restaurant, offering guests the opportunity to savour the finest seasonal dishes, prepared using only the very freshest, locally sourced produce. One of the most appealing features of Relais Santa Croce has to be the wonderful 18th century "Music Room" complete with a small stage, still used for intimate theatrical and musical performances. Tobacco aficionados, are able to indulge in some of the world's finest cigars in the hotel's exclusive "Smoking Room".
With its central location within easy walking distance of many of Florence's principal sites of historic and artistic interest, Relais Santa Croce is a much requested venue for high profile meetings and social gatherings hosted in the Tuscan capital. Two elegant function rooms, equipped with state-of-the-art meeting room technology, offer a total seating capacity for 140 people.
