My partner and I stayed in a standard double-room (possibly the other more expensive options have bigger rooms, so please note that my review is only relevant to the double-room, and not the suites or larger rooms for families). The room is extremely small. In fact, the bed (a King-sized bed) made up the entirety of the room. We had... More

Dear Mr. P., Thanks for your review, I remind you that you booked and stayed in an economy double room not in a standard room that it's bigger than the economy one and has a different rate. Anyway the economy rooms are smaller than the other rooms type available in our Hotel. We don't use the toilet rolls not to... More

I spent around 5 hours solid searching for a hotel that had a balcony/ was close to the buzz of the city/ was in the taste of the great Italian architecture and style and reasonably priced and Hotel La Scaletta has it all in droves.

If you are coming to Florence, I couldn't recommend this hotel enough. My partner and I have stayed in hotels all over the world - London, Dubai, Perth (Australia), Baku etc etc but this really did top it. The hotel is 2 minutes walk from the old bridge and 10 minute walk from any of the important sites in Florence... More

We love this hotel. We prefer the rooms that are not modern in design but both rooms we have stayed in were comfortable and functional. The rooftop bar is wonderful. The staff is friendly and very helpful before via email and during our stay. Highly recommend.

Hotel La Scaletta is full of charm and character. Reception is on the third floor which is reached by a small lift or lots of steps. This may be a consideration for those who are less mobile but we found climbing the steps each day a good way to work off the gelato! We were upgraded to a luxury room... More

Staying in Pitti

Neighborhood Profile
Pitti
Pitti is a neighborhood characterized by art and history. Renaissance architecture such as Pitti Palace, which houses five museums alone, introduces visitors to the green lungs of spectacular Boboli Gardens. Any visitor can wander through statues, fountains, and panoramic viewpoints. Around the garden, treasures like the Museum of Natural History of the Specola and Villa Bardini guide guests through Florence as the cradle of the Renaissance. End the day with an aperitif in Piazza della Passera or the more romantic Forte di Belvedere, which offers an amazing panoramic view of the entire city.
