“stay at Cellai”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

The double room was nice, but a little bit small. For two people it would be far too tight.
For one person the price was too high, Next time I would definitely not choose this hotel, but I was tighed to a meeting at the sight.
Courtains are difficult to handle.
Had a number of moquitoes in the night.
The lounges are very nice.

A myriad of sitting rooms throughout the hotel where guests can gather to talk or read. Beautiful music piped in and an honesty bar with a variety of wines and liquors. The breakfast is delicious and full of healthy as well as decadent choices. I highly recommend this hotel.

Close to all attraction in walking distance. Hotel had some challenges room was like a shoe box, it took two days for hotel to fix shower hose that was to short to fit in its wall holder, in other words I had to hold the shower head while my wife washed her hair, different but fun too. No info in room for guest services and the door needed to be secured a couple of time before locking. Bed was very hard.
Breakfast was simple...and service was a challenge. We often felt like we were bothering them.

Dear Sir,

We apology for delay in fixing your shower with our usual speed. Getting mantainance on sunday is very difficult in Italy, and expecially in Florence. The shower of your room is now perfectly working.

The size of your room was perfectly described in your reservation as you booked one of the less expensive ones. We only got 3 rooms on this category. Of course all the other rooms have a different size and can be booked adding a little difference.

We look forward seeing you at Cellai Hotel again in order to enjoy a stay in one of our new luxurious suites.

Best regards,

Fiammetta Cellai

This charming hotel is located only 10 minutes away walking distance from the main attractions. It's very stylish, with a vintage touch and really cosy. Rooms are having a good size and a lovely decoration and amenities and the hotel staff is willing to help with every detail. I recommend this hotel 100%.

We booked this hotel for 3 nights on special offer through conde nast traveller secret escapes and as such were given a superior double room with complimentary fruit and wine (we later discovered that this is offered to all superior room guests and is not a conde nast special). The room was a good size (though I wouldn't want to stay in a standard room if it was smaller!) and very modern decor. the bathroom was also big with full length mirror doors and a bathtub with great shower pressure. The best thing I liked about this hotel was the electic decor and the small thoughtful touches everywhere. The hotel is located in a very old period building which has been gorgeously restored and around the lobby there is has a maze of interconnecting salons done in different styles and if Florence wasn't such a great city to explore you can imagine yourself spending a quite day in a salon with a good book and a drink. The hotel also had a good selection of breakfast which was beautifully presented and there are complimentary pitchers of 2 types of juices, water and a bucket of ice to welcome you at the reception. We did not have the complimentary afternoon tea offered because we were never at the hotel at the time. The hotel also offers complimentary bikes if you wish to cycle around and Florence is quite bicycle friendly if you are a comfortable rider.
Now the downside: from the reviews, we gathered that the hotel is very centrally located but we did not find this to be the case. The hotel is about 10 min walk (with suitcases) from the main train station and is about 15 minutes walking to the central (walking) part of Florence where the duomo and most of the attractions and nightlife is located. We felt that if we wanted to return to our hotel for a rest between tours (and there is a lot of walking in Florence!), it was a little out of the way to make the trek back and forth 3-4 times a day.
Although we loved the hotel itself and all the thoughtful touches, we would have preferred to be more centrally located for our short and action packed tour of Florence. Our family was staying right in the center in hotel calzaiuoli and we even though their hotel was not as beautiful, we preferred it due to the location!
