The hotel itself is wonderful. The staff was amazing and very helpful in everything we did. You MUST let them make a reservation at La Tagliata on a night that you are there. This is the best restaurant experience I've ever had. I can't say enough about the staff at the hotel. They were wonderful and very easy to talk... More

My best friend and I stayed at this hotel for two nights. It is in a great location right down the street from the Ponte Vecchio. The lobby is on the second floor but there is a tiny elevator if you don't want to take the 96 steps (yep...96...we climbed them one day and were tired!). The rooms are a... More

Hotel LaScaletta was wonderful! Friendly & helpful staff. Rooms were beautifully decorated and some of the largest rooms & bathrooms I've ever seen in Europe. We were upgraded to the Bed & Breakfast section of the hotel which was magnificent. We had the "Brown" suite (no view but amazing room). Our children had rooms in the regular section which were...

We loved staying at hotel la scaletta. The location is GREAT--two minute walk from the Ponte Vecchio. It is a very quiet hotel, and we did not hear any cars or people on the street. Only drawback is the air conditioning does not really work -- much of Italy is this way though. Great central location to stay at in... More

La Scaletta is centrally situated between the Pitti Palace and the Ponte Vecchio. The staff at reception, in the bar and at breakfast were unfailingly helpful and friendly. Our room was clean, spacious and well maintained, and the cleaning staff kept it spick and span throughout our stay. A highlight of the trip was the breakfasts on the terrace overlooking... 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.
