Very helpful staff, pleasant & welcoming. The hotel is a few meters from Ponte Vecchio & have affordable prices. Great value for money. Have passed the address on & will surely stay there next time I'll be in Firenze.

Considering the price of the hotel, what you get is fantastic: a perfectly good breakfast, the best location imaginable, excellent friendly staff, and quite good accommodations. It's true that this is not the Four Seasons but that isn't what you're paying either, and even though we are fairly choosy about hotels, we really enjoyed our stay at this one and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. As others have noted, the lift is tiny and slow and the common areas are more akin to a pensione; however, the room was enormous and extremely comfortable. During our weeklong stay, we saw many of the other hotels we had considered and not a single one was better located than this one - it is one small block from the Ponte Vecchio!

We arrived in Florence and after a long plane ride from America we were welcomed to Hotel Scaletta. Sara is very nice and friendly! She showed us to our room and made us feel welcomed. Our room is large with a nice bathroom. It is clean and simply decorated. The location is ideal. We walked to all the museums and to the bus station. The walk from the bus station is about 20 minutes, but it isn't hard to find. Breakfast offered a wide variety of foods. The rooftop terrace has a magnificent view of Florence! It was beautiful in the morning. We were very glad to get rested for the rest of our trip in Italy.

first of all - the amazing view from terrace!
our time in florence was great! The location of the hotel is less than 5 min. from the ponto vecchio and less than 10 min. from Piazza del Duomo and is far enough from big streets so it was nice quiet in the evening and the night.
Closely to the hotel are many cafés, restaurants, bakery, souvenir shops and some supermarkets. we had small fridge in our room with free welcome drinks - great!
Staff was very friendly and cool.
At this time - end of february is florence not overcrowded and sunshine invites to spend some time taking espresso.

What an interesting place to stay! Went at the beginning of February and it was gorgeous. The room was perfect with great water pressure and plenty of hot water. Double pained windows so the outside noise was low. Couldn't hear people walking above us but could hear noise from the hallway and room next door but put in ear plugs and was fine. There are stairs leading all over the hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I rated cleanliness a four because the day we wanted our towels cleaned the service man came into our bathroom and picked them off the floor and hung them up for us to use again. However, the other staff gave us clean towels. It was the only day of three days the cleaning people did not come to our room and they must have been extremely busy....not a big deal as we are not dirty people but we did like the clean towels.
The American bar has an incredible view of Florence and the Pitti Palace and Boboli Gardens. Access to Florence is right out the front door. The location is between the Ponte Vecchio and Pitti Palace and so convenient. Lots of great restaurants near by and because we stayed four nights, they gave us a free lunch at a wonderful local trattoria. Loved the place and am looking forward to returning.

We had a wonderful stay in the Hotel La Scaletta, welcoming and helpful Team. The location is very central. The view from the Terrasse were you can have breakfast is amazing. We really would like to recommend this nice hotel. The Staff speaks english and french very well. There are a lot of cafés and restaurants near the hotel and also a little supermarket.

The hotel itself is very interesting - old historical building with excellent location, very close to the Ponte Vecchio and to the most interesting sightseeing places in the city. The reception staff is very friendly and did their best to help us.

Small disadvantages: the room was not well planned enough - a very big area, which cannot be used by guests very efficiently, and difficult access to very small (max 2 persons only) elevator if you are traveling with a lot of luggage. But the price was reasonable.
