We were able to find this charming hotel with only vague directions. It's easy to find, just off the Ponte Vecchio in Oltarno. First impressions of the staff held through our 4-night stay. They were helpful, accommodating and welcoming with every interaction. Unasked, they even provided a surprise birthday cake for my friend's birthday while we were there. They gave...

We are staying here for 4 nights, im writing this on the third night. Hotel is a bit different; reception is on the top floor. You get up by taking 97 steps or the smallest lift you ever saw. It takes 2 persons at a time, but I would say its romantic; you are so close you can spend time...

Hotel La Scaletta is in the Oltrarano district of Firenze, just a few steps off of the Ponte Vecchio. I have stayed here every December for many years. The rooms are very clean, comfortable and roomy. The hotel is situated in a large building on many different levels. The very small elevator/lift is a bit slow and antiquated, but serves...

Excellent all round, really --- with the addition of fantastic terraces with views over the Boboli grardens and Florence more generally. If you have the good-value-for-Florence breakfast be sure to ask for a double espresso americano from the kitchens if you are used to decent morning coffee. (Don't be led astray by any waiterly assumptions that non-Italians might prefer the...

We found this hotel online and decided to give it a try. The last time we were in Florence we stayed near the Piazza della Repubblica, which was centrally located but hectic because of that. The La Scaletta is between the Pitti Palace and the Ponte Vecchio. Like other hotels in Florence, it is not a freestanding building, but is...

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.
