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

This little hotel was absolutely wonderful. Although it is a "one star" hotel, it definitely has the service, cleanliness, and coziness of a 5 star! We only got to interact with one of the owners, and she was amazing. She was so helpful in suggesting things to do in Florence and she was very friendly, always welcoming you with a... More

Alessio and Asumi are the friendliest hotel proprietors that we have ever come across. Gracious and kind, full of helpful suggestions and great restaurant recommendations that really helped us to get off the beaten tourist track a little, we couldn't thank them enough at the end of our four night stay over the Easter weekend. The hotel is very clean,... More

We stayed here for 3 nights during our trip to Italy. The hotel is in a great location, close to the historical heart of Florence but away from the busy and noisy area. Alessio and Asumi are gracious, kind and accomodating hosts, always willing to help. We stayed in a huge bedroom, with a shared bathroom. The bedroom was spacious.... More

I stayed by myself in this delightful small hotel, located between the Ponte Vecchio and Ponte Santa Trinita. The street it's on--Borgo S. Apostoli--is one which radiates from the Piazza Santa Trinita . . . a lovely, narrow, winding street lined with a variety of interesting shops and restaurants. The owners, Alessio and Asumi, speak fluent English and Japanese, and... More

I've been staying in this charming, wonderful hotel for 10 years. Owners, Alessio and Asumi, are fantastic. You will be treated just as if you were visiting familty. They speak English as well as Japanese. They can, if you want, give you suggestions of places to visit and local events. The entire hotel is sparkling clean. The beds are super... More

Stayed here for three nights in the height of summer. The couple who operate this hotel are incredibly helpful and polite, they cannot do enough to help you. The property itself is immaculately maintained and very clean. The rooms are gorgeous, we had the suite room overlooking the street with a small bathroom attached which is above the laneway that...

We loved staying at this small, delightful hotel in the heart of Firenze. Our hosts were very welcoming and lovely and told us where to find the best gelato in town (which we promptly did). My room was light, charming and comfortable, though my friend's was a bit darker. We used a shared bathroom, which was kept meticulously clean and... More

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Cestelli in early November. Our stay there was one of the highlights of our trip. The owners/hosts, Alessio and Asumi, are delightful -- warm and welcoming, and such fun to talk with -- and also so helpful with our dinner decisions! The location is perfect, on a narrow street near the Ponte Vecchio,... More
