Like many in Florence, this hotel is built into the shell of a former convent. Morandi alla Crocetta has retained the original layout, meaning some rooms are snug—though that does not apply to the 2 rooms added in 2014, ranged around the old cloister downstairs. Anyway, what you lose in size, you more than gain in character: Every single one oozes tipico fiorentino. Rooms have parquet flooring thrown with rugs and dressed with antique wooden furniture. Original Zocchi prints of Florence, made in 1744, are scattered around the place. It’s definitely worth upgrading to a Superior if you can: These have more space and either a private courtyard terrace or, in one, original frescoes decorating the entrance to the former convent chapel, now blocked-up into the wall. The hotel is on a quiet street.
