Our rooms were huge with lots of windows to let in the light and the sound of the bells ringing. Everything was very clean and the bathroom had a rain shower which was great. The location was within walking distance of everything including the bus/train station. If you stay here have dinner on the terrace---food is delicious and the view... More

The La Scaletta is a wonderful hotel. Located on the south side of the Arno between the Piti Palace and the Ponte Veccio puts it in the perfect spot to see all the high lights of Florence. The rooftop restaurant should not be over looked. The million dollar view is spectacular and the food in the restaurant is as good... More

Hotel Scaletta is located near the center of Florence, all sightseeing places can be reached by feet. The rooms are very clean, the bathroom a little bit too small. Enjoying a dinner on the terrace is absolutely great, just as the meal. The stuff very friendly. There is only one very small elevator, so a stay for guests with handycap... More

We enjoyed our first stay here last year so much there was no question for our return trip where we would stay. Perfect location near the Ponte Vecchio and close to many gems on that side of the Arno. Comfortable rooms and friendly staff. If we travel to Florence again, we would definitely book here again.

What a wonderful spot from where everything in Firenze can be discovered and enjoyed. This is in part due to the fabulous position of La scaletta and in part, the really helpful and lovely staff.

Everyone was very welcoming and helpful. The front desk staff assisted us with booking tours and dinner reservations, and calling for taxis when we needed them. The hotel is in a great location, just across the Ponte Vecchio from the main tourist area of Firenze. Our room was very nice, with a view of Boboli Gardens. The breakfast buffet was... 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.
