We are glad we weren't deterred by the dark, musty smelling entrance as a gem awaited us up three flights of stairs. Alessio, one of the owners of Hotel Cestelli welcomed us and couldn't have been more helpful helping us plan our time in Florence. With just eight rooms this hotel occupies one floor of the building it's in. We chose a room with a shared bathroom to keep cost down (70 Euros per night) and were pleasantly surprised by our very large room with wonderful period furniture. The shared bathroom was equally spacious and we appeared to be the only ones using it. We used the sink, mirror and towels in our room for basic grooming. The location of this hotel is fantastic - less than a block from the Arno River and only a 5-10 minute walk to the Uffizi museum, the designer shops and the Duomo. Exceptional value!
