First time in florence. Location to us was extremely important and did not disappoint. Was in the heart of things and price for us in the off season was good. Would not hesitate to recommend. Staff was friendly and breakfast was more than good. Typical Italian breakfast.

Great hotel in a very nice location, less than 10 minutes walk from the main museums and other points of interest. Room was very comfortable with a huge and impeccable bathroom. All staff were helpful with particular attention to detail; everyone making an effort to allow us a most pleasant stay. In spite of having read previously very favorable recommendations for Hotel La Scaletta, I must say we were very much surprised as our expectations were exceeded.

Stayed in this hotel with my wife for a few days. I found the hotel in the book "1000 places to see before you die" . It was in there I believe for its 360 view and location. I agree with the book, it is a great hotel. The location was perfect (blocks from the ponte vecchio). The Food was great (ate dinner up where you could view the city 360 degrees). The staff were very nice, and the Rooms were huge! The rooms were really great . Loved this hotel, would definitely recommend it .

The hotel is perfectly located within easy walking distance from all the major sites and museums. Restaurants and shopping opportunities are also close by - For example, the hotel is situated on the same street as one of the best glove makers in Florence (Madova). Our renovated room (no.38) was quiet and spacious (20 - 25 sqm) with good lighting, although the beds and pillows are quite hard. Bathroom was perfect and the shower was quite large. The hotel has an excellent rooftop terrace with great views across Florence.

We arrived by car and hotel provided several parking options paid and free. Free parking is available at the Piazza Michelangelo about 15 mins walk away from the hotel which we opted for. The hotel breakfast is quite basic and does not offer good value - it could be improved, particularly with a better espresso coffee maker, but there other cafes just down the street that provide an alternative. Overall, the hotel was a good choice.

Our family of five spent 5 nights in the family suite. With three bedrroms and two full baths this was perfect for us. The rooms are a bit rustic, but filled with character. Large windows that can be opened and let in lots of natural light. The bathrooms are modern and the master bath is very luxurious with a nice shower and a large jetted tub. We had no difficulty transporting our luggage in the small elevator. I didnt mind taking the stairs as it allowed me to work off all of the pasta and gelato. The location is ideal. Our room was very quiet with no street noise. The staff was friendlyband helpful.The breakfast room was charming. We ate breakfast in the hotel twice. It was fine, but there are much better options close to the hotel. The rooftop terrace is spectacular. If I return to Florence and I certainly hope I will, I will definitrly return to La Scaletta. It was cold while we were there and it would have been nice to have some rugs on the floor.

When you visit Florence location must be your first priority. Hotel La Scaletta is one minutes walk to Ponte Vecchio and this means you are able to visit whole Florence on foot and when you want to have a rest, your hotel is just near. We had a good price deal but price wasn't covering the breakfast. If you are expecting a good breakfast with that price you won't be happy. Room, bathroom, sleeping quality and cleaning was perfect at all. We had free drinks, kettle and tea in the room as welcome gifts. I can easily suggest this hotel. Just want to write that hotel is not an independent building, it is at the top floor of a building with 24 hours open reception.

We are a family of four. The staff and location make this a very enjoyable stay. When we first arrived they recommended the free walking tour (tip of ten euros) that went for over two hours. They also recommend ed to us the best pizza restaurant that we went to in Italy. Hotel had lots of stairs but small elevator. Room and bathroom were small but there was four us. We would definitely stay there again.
