Hotel Scoti is not a great place to stay in Florence. Firstly the name is misleading - its not a hotel at all the place is really a hostel. It was obviously the apartment of a very rich family at one time and the decor has the depressing air of faded grandeur about it. The rooms very basic and are not the kind you would want to spend any time relaxing in.The bed sheets were not changed once during our 4 day stay and neither were the towels Every day we came back to find our used towels which we had left on the floor carefully replaced on the radiators! The first morning we all woke up having been bitten during the night - we searched high and low for mosquitos but did not see or hear any -i have never experienced bed bugs before so I can't be sure what it was that was biting us but it was not mossies
The location is not great really either -there are no cafes or restaurants on the street but granted there are plenty within a 10 minute walk. The street is all very expensive designer shops and lets face it if you are staying at Hotel Scoti you probably cannot afford to shop here. We stayed in an expensive hotel for 6 days in Rome and decided to economise by staying some where cheaper in Florence - big mistake!!
Sure the family who run the place are friendly but we did not see them from the time we checked in til we left 4 days later
Florence is a beautiful city so do not ruin your experience of it by staying at the Hostel Scoti you could probably find somewhere much better for very little more cash
