It's right next to most of the tourist attractions, but not to the railway terminal - so my advice is to email the staff in advance and ask for directions (local buses to take), a taxi might be an overkill. It's a bit old-fashioned, the hotel, but cozy - a very small elevator takes one to the reception desk on... More

Good quality hotel. We stayed in one of the top spec luxury rooms. Would definitely stay there again. Very well located being only a few minutes walk from the famous Pont de Vecchico bridge. The roof top view is excellent over looking the Palace of Pitti.

La Scaletta ... brilliant hotel in every way. I basically needed it for a place to sleep when I was visiting Florence for around 12hours on the way to Rome. Brilliant location (there's a rather famous bridge just next door ;) ) wonderful staff in every way, dealing with everything from printing requests to when I blew the fuses in... More

This was my second stay at Hotel La Scaletta. I've stayed once with my family of 6 (the family suites are very nicely organized) and once with just my daughter. The location is great, just across the Ponte Vecchio, a 15 minute walk to the train station, 5-7 minute walk to the Duomo. Had coffee/breakfast at Le Rivoire a few... More

Great location just '2 steps' from the Ponte Vecchio. We got a good deal on a cash payment booking. Nice spacious room with big comfy bed, very clean new bathroom, tea-making stuff, 1 free breakfast and professional helpful staff. The station is walkable too. This is our third visit and we wouldn't stay anywhere else in Florence. Highly recommended if... More

This is a perfect boutique hotel for a florentine visit. It is welcoming and homely with exquisite rooms in the tuscan style, simple and luscious. Our large room has a balcony and a contemporary ensuite bathroom, along with a dressing room. The bed was comfortable and generous and the lightening was great. The staff were friendly, helpful and courteous. Not... More

My family and I stayed at this modest, yet elegant hotel just across the Ponte Vecchio on Via de’ Guicciardini. It may not be located in the city center among the bustling tourists and those convenient, yet ruthless selfie-stick vendors – but it certainly provides a comfortable stay with an authentic Italian vibe. From the outside, the entrance is rather... More

The hotel was very well located and a comfortable 12 minutes walk from the train station. We took a cab from the train station as we are not sure which direction to walk or take the bus, it cost us EUR9.

The Hotel La Scarletta was an awesome hotel. Our room was a very very clean and comfortable bed and ensuite. The hotel was ideally located over the Arno River, but close enough to be immersed in the hype of everything. The hotel staff were very helpful and friendly and ensured that our stay was memorable.

Staying in Pitti

Neighborhood Profile
Pitti
Pitti is a neighborhood characterized by art and history. Renaissance architecture such as Pitti Palace, which houses five museums alone, introduces visitors to the green lungs of spectacular Boboli Gardens. Any visitor can wander through statues, fountains, and panoramic viewpoints. Around the garden, treasures like the Museum of Natural History of the Specola and Villa Bardini guide guests through Florence as the cradle of the Renaissance. End the day with an aperitif in Piazza della Passera or the more romantic Forte di Belvedere, which offers an amazing panoramic view of the entire city.
