We visited this hotel early September 2016. Don’t let the vent smell in the building hallway get to you - once you enter and climb to the 2nd floor (no lift) you are greeted like family in a beautifully decorated hotel lobby (with no smell). Hosts Alessio & Asumi will show you everything you need to know on the map... More

Part of a Thirteenth Century castle, the Cestelli has few frills, but it's very clean and the owners are wonderful. It's centrally located, in the middle of everything. Step out the door and you'll walk where the Medici did.

This hotel has the perfect location. It is within a 10 minute walk of everything that you would ever want to see. It also off the beaten path of tourists which allows for a quiet retreat at the end of a long day. Check in was super easy. Both hosts were very friendly and knowledgable about the area. The only...

Staying in Uffizi

Neighbourhood Profile
Uffizi
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
