A perfect location for our first visit to Florence. We loved lively Oltrarno as much as the beautiful historic city centre itself. The hotel is within easy walking distance of all the main sites on both sides of the Arno. Rooms quiet, comfortable, spacious, clean and good value for money. Staff friendly and welcoming. Star turn is the rooftop terrace... More

We loved our stay here. The location was absolutely perfect and it was so easy to walk to everything we wanted to see and do. The rooftop terrace has spectacular views and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We would definitely choose to stay at Hotel La Scaletta again!

We found it to be perfect for our first trip to Florence. Within walking distance of everything we wanted to see and do. Would stay there again without hesitation. A sundown dinner on the upper veranda was our perfect way to begin our stay in Florence.

Only one night here, but we were pleased. The main event for us is the amazing and tiny elevator that we had to take to get up three flights to the reception. So small that it only had room for me and my one bag, then it was my husband's turn. Then to get to our room we took the... More

Dear Mrs. M., Thank you for the nice review and for the time used to write it. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay in our Hotel and we understand your opinion about the elevator but unfortunately for a XV century building it's not possible to have a bigger one. Hope to welcome you again in the future. All... More

This is a review of only the restaurant! My wife and I were only in Florence for a day and wanted a nice but not too heavy lunch, we saw the Special Lunch Menu at just €15 per head (very cheap in Italy) and thought we'd give it a try, from the first step into the old building we were... More

When booking it is not so clear what you get. We have booked a superior room and we have got Room No. 40. It was nice (except the shower sink doesn't work well) but I got the impression that you should get - for the same or similar price we paid - nicer rooms (pictures on Scaletta's web site and... More

The location is perfect! It is just over the bridge and the room was huge we had two double beds and the rooms where spotless and really quiet. The staff where great and the roof top bar was amazing the views at night where lovely. We ate breakfast there and it was a steal in comparison to the breakfast prices... More

La Scaletta is a hidden gem in Florence. The location is perfect for all of the major attractions in Florence. The hotel service was excellent. The room was comfortable with plenty of space. The roof-top reference provided very good food with an excellent view of Florence. The only down-side is that there are 97 steps to the hotel lobby, but... More

I will start with the negatives. The air conditioner is very loud to a point that my friend asked me to turn it off while we slept. The air conditioner is also non adjustable, only the temperature but for some reason it would not heat the room when I tried to put it to 25 to dry my clothes. The... More

Dear Mr. S., Thanks for the review and for the time used to write it. It's such a pity that instead of advise the reception staff about the problems that you had during the stay you easily wrote them in your review. Everything can be explain and solved. Air conditioning system is totally new and the only "noise" that you... More

Great location and awesome roof-top restaurant. Extremely helpful staff. Rooms were small but AC worked great and bathroom/shower was terrific especially for a big person like me. The small elevator was challenging as were the stairs but for us added to the charm. Did I mention the roof-top?
