We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay at Hotel La Scaletta. The room was beautiful, modern style with respect to the old charm of the building and with a lovely view of the garden. We woke up to church bells and sweet singing birds. Breakfast, that was included in our room rate, was delicious and a full spread. The roof... More

Perfectly located for exploring Florence but quiet enough that you can get a good nights sleep. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Breakfast could maybe have a few more options but the view from the terrace makes your morning coffee. Stairs as noted may be tough on some but great way to work off a little bit of the night...

Excellent room, nice bed, very comfortable. Just a few steps from the ponte vechio and the palacio Pitti. The best of the hotel os their personal, they resolve all our request, including a bouquet of flores in the room, a tour reservation and the next hotel conection.

Couldn't fault the hotel, great location and we loved everything about it. We would definitely visit again. Staff were friendly and efficient. Only small disappointment was the bar wasn't open in winter

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
