We spend a long weekend in Florence and stayed 4 nights in wonderful hotel La Scaletta. We selected this hotel carefully and were not disappointed. We arrived late at the Peretola Airport of Florence and took a taxi to the hotel. It is a 20 minutes drive and there is a fixed rate of 25 euro's. You can also take... More

Our four nights at Hotel La Scaletta were ideal. The hotel is located in an area that is within easy walking distance of all of the major sites, it's incredibly quiet at night, the view from the upper terrace is spectacular and there are many great restaurants nearby. La Scaletta provided a terrific complimentary breakfast that had a lot of... More

The hotel is situated next to the Pitti palace with its beautiful boboli gardens. The hotel itself is a hidden gem - non discript entrance foyer that during a Florence rain storm can be difficult to find as it is crowded with tourists escaping the rain. The breakfast buffet is first class and an be taken on the rooftop terrace... More

The rooftop view is magnificent. The hotel staff very helpful and friendly. Our family room was large and clean. Scaletta means steps and there are lots of them throughout the hotel - it is a very quirky shape and despite a very small lift at the entrance which barely takes 2 people plus luggage, I have no complaints. The location... More

Dear Mr. G., Thank you very much for the nice review. Well the Hotel is in a XV cent. palace and for this reason we have some "restrictions" but we work everyday to offer the best service in order to let our guest live a perfect stay. After the works that we did the family room is one of my... More

La Scaletta is one of the nicest hotel from Florence. The location where it is situated makes it to be a best choice to stay either if you are visiting or if you are in a business trip. The staff is joyful and full of passion. The rooms are great, they are cosy and have a gorgeous view.

Wonderful hotel in a fantastic location, just next to the Ponte Vecchio. The reception staff pre-booked us a time to visit both the Uffizi Gallery and Accademia Gallery so we were able to go straight in and not queue for hours. The city is buzzing and busy, but our room (Blue room) was peaceful and quiet. The weather during our... More

Hotel La Scaletta is conveniently located two blocks from the Ponte Vecchio and down the street from the Pitti Palace and Boboli Gardens. Restaurants, museums, and gardens are very close and walkable, and I even walked to the train station once in only 20 minutes! Despite being on a busy street, the nights were quiet, and the air-conditioning was wonderful.... More

Dear Mr. R., Thanks for your kind review and I confirm you that making a direct booking with the Hotel web site or by email is cheaper and give you more facilities.

Friendly and helpful staff, great location and variety of unusual and great food at breakfast with view on the gardens! I warmly recommend it! Might be difficult for elderly and pregnant women as well as physically impaired because there are lots of stairs though.

When we return to Florence, we'll return to Hotel La Scaletta! La Scaletta is close to everything but not in the middle of it. It was perfect for us.
