Almost perfect. Location, service, and the jacuzzi in the family room, not to mention the dinner under the star with the panorama of Florence. The only little improvement to make is at the breakfast, maybe you could have better quality bread and pastries.. Thank you for a very nice stay in Florence. This is truly a magnificent experience.

The Scalleta Hotel Restaurant is located 50 meters from Pitti palace and ponte vecchio. We had an excellent lunch and dinner at their rooftop/terrace with the view of entire Florence and the Palazzo Pitti. Reservation is recommended to select the perfect post and view. Come back again at scalleta soon......! Highly recommended.

I chose this hotel after I red about it on tripadvisor, but this time I was not entirely satisfied. Hotel itself is quite nice (there is a lot of stairs everywhere),the room was nice as well- quite comfortable and wide bad. Unfortunately I was not happy with our breakfast.There is quite small choice of everything.I think they could do better.

Dear Mrs. A., Thanks for the kind review, stairs are a characteristic of our Hotel, as you read on the others reviews, and make our Hotel special and not a standard Hotel. We'll try to improve breakfast as well. Anyway hope to welcome you again in the future. All the Best! More

I was glad I stayed at the La Scaletta. It's very close to all the tourist sites, but in a slightly more relaxed neighborhood. There were lots more locals and students (Florence is overrun with midwestern American college kids) in this neighborhood. It was a great value. Hotels in Florence are very expensive compared to similar-sized cites in the rest... More

While not in the city center, it is a very short walk. The price was excellent and the rooms were comfortable and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooftop bar was a great place to start your evening with nice views and a drink. The air conditioner worked, but the beds were a little to firm for me.... More

As a family of 4 with college and high school aged sons, we chose Hotel La Scaletta for both the location and the Family Room. This room is incredible. Getting to it is like nothing I have experienced in a hotel. As long as you are able to use stairs, this is an amazing hotel. 97 steps up to reception... More

Location was great. The room was very nice and spacious. The front desk staff was extremely helpful. As with most boutique hotels I've stayed at in Europe, the elevator is very small, so if traveling with a large group and multiple suitcases, expect to make several trips in the elevator, some of the trips with just the luggage in the...

We had the most wonderful dinner on the rooftop of La Scaletta. Options are for the set menu for €50 per head which includes 4 courses, water, coffee and a liquor. Or choose off the menu which we did. It sounded like at certain times of the year there is no choice on this and you will have to have... More

Wonderful hotel. Great location. Room was clean and very comfortable and we had a room with a view, which made the morning start in a great way. The staff was very nice and helpful. They have a beautiful terrace. Recommended to anyone traveling to Florence. Wish I could still be there now!

Excellent location, great staff, very clean and air conditioned. Be warned there are a lot of stairs, but that was part of the charm for us. The rooftop terrace restaurant was an added bonus, we had a great meal on the very top terrace.
