Hotel la Scaletta is very conveniently located, just a short walk from all of the major attractions. My wife loves to shop which started as soon as we walked out the hotel door. The staff was very friendly and the room was modern and comfortable. We ate dinner there one night and the filets were as good as we have ever had. The only drawback was the fact that they are on various upper level floors and their lift only accommodates two people at a time (or one person and luggage). However, one of their staff will port your luggage for you which is well worth the one or two euro tip.

Dear Mr./Mrs. K.,

thanks for your kind review, we know our lift is not the most comfortable but it’s the max that we could have in a XV cent. palace we’ll try to improve our service.
We hope to welcome you back again in the future.
All the best!

I so enjoyed my stay at Hotel La Scaletta. My room was huge with a separate office/lounge room (I had booked a double room via booking.com). The king sized bed was the most comfortable of the 5 hotels I have stayed in in Italy this month. The American breakfast was very well done and eating up on the terrace with views to die for can't be beat. I was travelling alone and all the hotel staff were welcoming and helpful. The location, just a couple blocks from the Ponte Viecco in one direction and the Pitti Palace in the other was perfect. It is less than 5 minutes from the Ufizzi. I had a delicious dinner in the hotel La Scaletta. If you go be sure to visit some of the neighborhood sites and for sure eat and mingle away from the tourist hords in piazza Santo Spirito (Osteria Santo Spirito and Gusta Osteria were delicious!! I would stay no where else in Florence!! Thanks!!

Room Tip: My room was # 27 with a king bed and separate office/lounge room. It is on the corner with nice wind...

We booked one of the junior suites and the extra dollars were worth every penny! The room was very big (for american standard), with a lot of closet space and completely sound proof windows. The room was really well renovated / modern and had an awesome huge bathroom with a spa type tub. Location is excellent too because you are very close to the main attractions (5 minute walk) but on the other side of the bridge (more quiet)! Staff was great too, they all speak english and were quite nice and helpful.

Room Tip: Go for the junior suite if your wallet allows it, it's totally worth it !

My husband, mom and I stayed here sept 4 - 7 and we were really happy with our stay. The hotel is great, lots of charm and great location. Staff was really nice and all spoke good english, which we appreciated. We stayed in the triple room and loved it. More spacious than I thought it would be and comfortable beds. Pretty full length windows that opened to a pretty view. The bathroom was sufficient, a nice size but the shower didnt really have a door so the floor got pretty wet...not a big deal though. everything was clean and the free breakfast is a nice value added. We had dinner on the top terrace one night. food and service was good, but we thought it was pretty over-priced. It was by the most expensive dinner we had in Florence. The view is beautiful though, so I guess you pay for that. Would DEFINITELY recommend this hotel for the great location, staff, cleanliness, terraces and comfort!

Room Tip: The triple was great! Didn't really see any others.

Great location and absolutely great service. Wonderful matresses which are hard to find in Toscana! Fare value.
Nevermind the 94 stairs and the tiny elevator to reach the hotel as the location and service make up for it all.

Our stay at La Scaletta was amazing! Forget about smal elevators, that is all over Italy...the hotel was close too everything, the restaurant was outstanding and the view was incredible! Rooms were cozy and large, and had the old world charm we were looking for. The only thing that didnt get a 5 star rating (4 stars) was breakfast, but probably because I had already had meat and cheese for a week. In comparison to other breakfasts, it had everything you could want.

But most of all, the best thing about La Scaletta was the staff. Always patient, always helpful. I will look forward tonseeing my friends there again the next time we are in Firenze!
