This place is very near perfection for a traveller not looking for a resort. The negatives are well promoted and not a big deal but worth a mention; - it has only one shared bathroom for those rooms without their own bathroom - it has no lift but is only on the 2nd floor - it has no TV -... More

My friend and I stayed here for 4 nights and we had a wonderful time - the room was immaculate, the location excellent, great value for money and most of all, the owners were so friendly and charming, and full of recommendations, we couldn't have asked for much more.

I've just returned from a 10 day stay at Hotel Cestelli. Alessio and Assumi, the owners, are as charming as their lovely hotel. Alessio speaks perfect English and Italian and generously answers any question one might have. This trip, I was able to navigate the Italian post office, after he explained exactly what I needed to do. It is a... More

We stayed at the Hotel Cestelli at the end of September. What a great experience! The hosts were welcoming and extremely helpful with restaurant and activity recommendations. The location couldn't be better -- located a ten minute walk from the train station, and five minutes from the Arno, the Uffizi, Palazzo Vecchio, Duomo and many other major Florence sites. The...

We have stayed here several times and enjoy every experience. The couple who run the hotel, Alessio and Asumi, are gracious and accommodating. The hotel is quiet and perfectly situated amidst the busyness of Florence -- truly a treat. Rates are reasonable, too. We are charmed by the Hotel Cestelli, which is a tribute to the owners.

Staying at Hotel Cestelli was a delight. After long days of walking around the city, it felt nice returning to our temporary home in the beautiful 12th century palace. We checked in at night, entering a dimly lit lobby full of antique furniture and a large stained glass window like you'd find in an old church. I must find out... More

We would definitely stay here again. The room was simple but comfortable and the location was excellent. The best part was the hosts, Alessio and Asumi. Allessio was so friendly and gave us great suggestions about where to eat and what to do in Florence. Florence is ridiculously crowded with tourists and it does get overwhelming at times. With his...

We booked based on the Lonely Planet listing and found that Cestelli exceeded our expectations. Only marginally more expensive than our 6 bed dorm at a hostel in Rome, this 1 star hotel in Florence, run by Italian-Japanese couple Alessio and Asumi, was excellent value. The first impression created by the hallway was lovely – the old palace has the... More

Upon my trip to Florence I had never stayed in anything close to a hostel, and must say I was a little nervous about having a one bedroom with a shared bathroom. Little did I know there was little to be worried about. Upon arrival Alessio and Asumi the two owners greeted me with open arms and big smiles. My... More
