Nice room, bathroom, and shower. Wonderful breakfast each morning on the rooftop terrace with amazing views of Florence. Terrific location near the Ponte Vecchio and major sights to see. Staff was very nice and helpful. Wi-fi was not working much of the time, but it seemed to be a problem in much of the city and was being worked on.

Waiters are very friendly and explained everythg in details esp the origin of the wine.. If u r a wine lover,... More

This hotel is right in the middle of bustling shopping and restaurants. However, you either have to take 97 (yes, 97) steps up to register and haul suitcases or take the teeny, tiny elevator which is very slow. The rooms are quite sparse. No frills of any kind here. My biggest complaint was I never could make the room a... More

Walk over the Ponte Vecchio to this wonderful location for a hotel ! We were right in the center of the town so walking every alley and street was simple and fun. The rooftop balcony for breakfast overlooked the Boboli Palace and the Duomo - stunning views while you had your morning cappuccino !

The hotel overall was fine, but we felt our room, the Junior Suite with Boboli Garden View was ultimately a little overpriced and impractical. There was very minimal storage space for unpacking clothes, a number of the plug sockets didn't work and one of the bathroom sliding doors was jammed and didn't close at all offering a partial lack of...

In a city with expensive accommodation, this was a great find. Nothing too fancy but the hotel is quirky and full of character and the staff lovely. Our room was really spacious and the wifi worked perfectly. The best thing is definitely location. We were at the heart of everything without feeling too claustrophobic. Staff also gave us three great... More

We loved the location of this hotel - right across the Ponte Vechhio ! You are within walking distance to everything you wish to see in the city. And the views from the rooftop for breakfast were priceless ! We had a great breakfast selection.

Didn't stay at the hotel, but ate at the lovely terrace restaurant overlooking the Boboli Gardens. I suppose you are paying for the wonderful view, and it is amazing, the service was very good, and the food ok. Relatively good value for money.

It's mid-June and 90 degrees Fahrenheit (app 30 C) but the the central HVAC makes it cool and refreshing in the hotel (combined properties of La Scaletta Hotel and Uffizi Guesthouse). The room in the Uffizi Guesthouse has a window on Via Guiccardini but you can hardly hear any sound from the street except for a beeping horn and infrequently... More

I have stayed at la Scaletta many times since 2001 and was amazed at the renovations and improvements that have been made. As always, the staff is amazing, so friendly and helpful; the hotel is charming, the rooms are gorgeous, the amenities are numerous, the breakfast has become outstanding and the restaurant with the view is superb!
