Alessio and Azumi were brilliant hosts. Alessio loves Florence and gave us all the information we needed to make the most of our time there. Our room was spacious,well furnished and spotlessly clean with our own bathroom. Location was perfect.

Hotel Cestelli has an advantageous location. It's not far from the main train station (SMN) and a block away from the Arno, which allowed us to explore both sides of the river by foot. The room was charming with a view to the street. Finally, we can't say enough about Alessio and Asumi's hospitality. They gave us a very warm... More

Alessio and Asumi were such gracious hosts! Our room was enormous, and although we had a shared bathroom never had to wait to use it. The internet worked well. Alessio gave us a map and pointed out some sites to see. We asked for restaurant recommendations and ended up going twice to a restaurant they recommended. We would definitely stay... More

This hotel is at good location, only 3-5 min. walk to Ponte Vecchio and around 10 min. to S.M.N. station, but only tak it if you are not considered good facility, it's ok to have bathroom shared but water runs small, you have to take shower fast than get a cold. If you plan to stay days, they only change... More

No breakfast, no soap, they don't clean the room every day. It's more like a hostel but with private bathroom. Good location.—----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi, i stayed there for 2 days, it is a kind of small hotel on second floor of a building.. the rooms are a bit old fashioned and they lack in the amenities which are a must today like drinking water, wifi etc. Also the timings system was a bit odd. We were asked to submit the keys in case... More

Our room was huge and had a very pretty chandelier hanging from the ceiling. After many days of sharing bathrooms in Switzerland, I was happy to get our own private bathroom. The shower area was really small though; I kept feeling the shower curtain on my back while showering. The owners were nice and friendly. They gave us a map... More

The selling point on this hotel is the location. The hotel is maybe 5 minutes walking from the Ufizzi, and 10 minutes max from the Duomo, with easy access to the river as well. The owner was extremely nice and helpful, and the room was nice and the place was very clean and safe. The hotel is a relatively cheap... More

Hotel Cestelli is a small 8 room hotel in downtown Florence, just a two minute walk from the Ponte Vecchio. Off on a small side street, the hotel is on the second floor of an apartment building. The small lobby is very elegant and inviting and the couple who run the hotel are very nice and inviting. I was in... More

Great location near Ponte Vecchio ( 5 mins walk) and right next to piazza trinita which is entry point to the street with all the high end labels eg ferragamo, omega etc. It is also only 10 mins to the main train station and if you have carry on luggage, it's an easy walk. the room was large with ensuite...
