We stayed at La Scaletta for 4 days and everything was perfect. We had a large, cozy & clean room on the ground floor. Bathroom was very spacious. We discovered a lot of authentic bars & restaurants in the neighbourhood. Location is great, just some steps from Uffizi Palace, Ponte Vecchio and Piazza Santo Spirito, where you can find nice...

Just perfect. Oozing ambiance, a stones throw from the Otrarno side of the Ponte Vecchio it is silent and authentic. Barely five minutes to the Uffizi. Luxury comfort, boutique bathrooms. Rooftop terrace offers awesome views. Our only reservation was that given the room price breakfast could and should have been included. It costs 10Euro a head which, if you're a... More

Our third time in Florence we were seeking something convenient and walkable to most sights, yet not right in the center of it all where it would be too noisy. The hotel was perfectly situated with anything and everything you need within walking distance. The rooms are simple yet well sized for European standards and very clean. The staff was... More

We had a very good stay here. The layout is kinda odd but somehow adds to the charm of the hotel! We got a kick out of the small lift. Staff were friendly and helpful and our room was spacious and modern. Definitely get a drink at the rooftop bar during your stay. The location was great- a short walk... 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
