“Great spot!”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

Wonderful boutique hotel within easy walking distance to many Florence tourist sites, seems small at first, then you follow a warren of hallways to multiple floors and rooms, all uniquely decorated with antiques, books, quirky paintings and prints, etc. Varied breakfast with an assortment or meats, cheeses, yogurt, fruit, breads and croissants, eggs, baked dishes. Don't miss the gelato shop across the street! Rooms are quiet in spite of the noisy street. Yes, bathrooms are small, but typical for Europe. Attentive staff. Clean. Nice offering of juices in the late PM. Fun to sit and visit with friends in the "honor bar".

I have returned to this hotel again. The first time I stayed here was for a business trip and now I have just stopped for 3 nights for leisure. I must say that this is a great place - but let's keep it as a secret! The staff are fantastic, so friendly and highly professional, the rooms are fabulous. You can sleep into a charming hotel, in the city center, where you breathe a wonderful atmosphere. The lounge room is comfortable and nice and you can often see the owner, who usually enjoys some time with you and makes you feel at home.
Congratulations!

I am a repeater guest of the hotel Cellai, and every time i go to Florence I stay in this beautifully decorated and centrally located hotel.
The staff and management are both incredibly helpful and full of ideas if you ask any of them what to do in Florence.
The room I had was a large family room with 2 king size beds. The bathroom quite large and nicely decorated.
The cleanliness, although expected, was impeccable.
bedsheets and towels were all of high quality and I really enjoyed the room set up.
I was there in business and as the hotel is very central I have had the opportunity to walk in all the appointments I had.
I will book again when I have to visit this wonderful city again

Room Tip: I always ask in my reservation what do i like and what type of room i have. This has always help me...

We traveled to Firenze for 12 days, and stayed the entire time at Hotel Cellai. The staff was friendly and accommodating! The many rooms to hang out in downstairs were a big plus, and breakfast was great. I especially loved the decor!! The rooftop patio is magnificent! The location was great--only a ten minute walk to The Duomo and the middle of town. I expected a few quirky things since it was an older building, so our shower was tiny and the water pressure was not good, but our daughters' room next door had a great shower. And the internet was not available in our rooms most of the time. There was a noisy dance group of teenagers staying so night was kind of loud--we had to ask them to keep it down. That was our only real complaint, but aside from that everything was perfect! We will definitely be back next year!

Room Tip: Not all rooms have safes or refrigerators, and we had to request a non-smoking room.

I recently stayed in this hotel and was very pleased with it. Ideally situated, tons of museums and restaurants within walking distance. Nice continental breakfast with lots of variety. The room was percfectly fine as well, even though the second time we were there we did not have a bath in the room, only a standing shower. The main downside was that the service was kinda cold. Polite and respectful, but nothing out of the ordinary. Overall I would still reccoment this hotel.

Room Tip: The rooms with view on the street are a lot nosier, to avoid for calm and quiet!

I stayed at Hotel Cellai with my girlfriend for 3 nights last February. Our room was really nice and well decorated as was the whole hotel. Only 10 minutes walk from Ponte Vecchio and Uffizi Museum. 5 minutes walk from the Duomo and only 2 minutes walk from the Central Train Station. Their impeccable staff will make your stay comfortable and special. Breakfast were delicious.
I really enjoyed our staying at Hotel Cellai and I would recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Florence for business or traveling as a couple.

This lovely old hotel is a short walk from everything. If you want a big fancy new hotel, this is not it! We had a beautiful room with a velvet sofa and chair, nice bathroom and huge closet. The breakfast is delicious with homemade cakes, croissants, etc. and they have tea available in the afternoons. There are several charming rooms on the first floor for sitting, reading or having a drink and the staff were very accomodating.You feel as if you stepped into a someone's gracious home. If you like old world charm, then this is the hotel for you.

Room Tip: Try room 401. In Italy generally any room at the back of a hotel will be quieter!
