The Hotel La Scaletta is a fabulous hotel. Great location, quiet and huge, recently updated rooms, excellent breakfast, and what a view from the rooftop terrace! The staff could not have been more helpful! What else can I say. I would definitely book this hotel again. It is an excellent value. The elevator is fine. It is just not huge.... More

With this well-positioned, friendly hotel you have a great operation that is a lttle unsure how to position itself..which leads potentially to some frustrations & confusions. Created out of a veritable rabbit-warren of buildings co-joined & interconnected on many different levels, luggage management is definitely one hurdle--but that can be overcome with patience & goodwill. YOU lug it upstairs to... More

Dear Mr. J., Thanks for your review and for the time used to write it. We understand that our Hotel has not a big lift and has different floors where the rooms are located and is not always easy to go on the 3rd floor with bags to then go downstairs to get the room. Originally our Hotel was composed... More

I recently stayed in Firenze for 4 nights, and for the past 4 years I have returned to "Hotel La Scaletta".

The hotel has been recently upgraded, and all rooms are newly remodeled. The rooms are big, nicely... More

We stayed a couple of nights during a long weekend in Florence. 
LOCATION

 The hotel is located oltrarno, meaning on the other side of Florence, a bit away from the more touristy sites, such as il Duomo and gli Uffici. However, it is steps away from the Ponte Vecchio and you can easily walk to the main areas of Florence.... More

Room was clean, comfortable, quiet - nothing to improve upon or wish for. Location can't be beat, right between the Pitti Palace and Ponte Vecchio. A quick walk over the bridge to city center, or a stroll down the street to so many artisans on that side of the river. What was unexpected was the rooftop restaurant. Not only was... More
