“Very Central location”
Reviewed 11 February 2014

Hotel Scoti is very centrally located for all touring of FLorence. The property has some fabulous and spacious reception rooms with fabulour wall hangings. You will need to use these rooms if you wish to access the internet. I have asthma and found there was a smell of tobacco which I did not think came from guests. My room was fine and bathroom was not en-suite. Would look at other venues before staying here again.

First time in Florence, first time overseas! My wife and I chose hotel scoti based on lonely planet recommendation. A wise decision . A great place to stay in the very heart of Florence. Doreen was the consummate host attending to all our needs, giving great advise on local attractions. Clean comfortable rooms, would highly recommend .

This was probably the best value B&B during our week in Italy. Hotel Scoti is located in on Florence's main shopping street in the middle of high-end retail stores. When you arrive at the hotel, the first thing that strikes you is the fantastic wall coverings and amazing view of Florence. From our room, we had a breathtaking view of terra-cotta tiled roofs with church bells that chimed each hour.

Enjoyed our stay here. It really is the best value place in the most ritzy street in Florence! It is on the street of all of the fabulous shops such as Armani,Gucci ,Tiffany and Co. ...etc.
Also close to Ponte Vecchio and the River and not too far to Uffitzi Gallery.
Having said that I would probably stay in a more vibrant area, say near Sante Croce area next time. It's quite dead around the hotel street at night with not many nearby bars, restaurants. The rooms are noisy, not from the street but from the other rooms. The Internet is quite slow in the lovely lounge /sitting room and non existent in the rooms.

Flanked by Prada and Alexander McQueen, facing Fendi and Armani, #7 Via Tornabuoni right in the heart of Florence is a most unlikely place to find budget accommodation. Yet Florence is full of surprises. Hidden behind a daunting doorway and secluded on the second floor of this historic building is the charming Hotel Scoti. Rooms are airy and comfortable, the sitting area (with free WiFi) inviting, and the bubbly vivaciousness of Doreeen the proprietress a pleasant contrast to the stony unresponsiveness of Italian waiters and museum attendants.

We were very happy to have been able to stay at Hotel Scoti in Florence. We stayed for 6 nights and the location was such that we could walk everywhere we wanted to go without any trouble. In fact we could walk from the train station when we arrived from Rome. The Duomo is around the corner, as is the Ponte Vecchio, Uffizi Gallery and not much further the L'Accademia. Doreen was really professional and friendly. The room was comfortable with a well-equipped bathroom. Unfortunately no hair dryer is available in the room. Some hairdryers are put in the dining room for guests to use, however we weren't always able to get a dryer that worked. A sweet breakfast is available at a small charge and it is served in the room. The wi-fi was not working in the room and we had to sit in the lounge to be able to get on line. What we missed most was the unavailability of a kettle. There is no facility available to guests for making coffee or tea in the Hotel and this would have been a huge plus point. On the whole a pleasant stay.

We stayed here for 3 nights last week. It was a return visit having stayed here previously 6 years ago. It is as charming as ever and the owner, Doreen was extremely welcoming and helpful. The location is fantastic, 5 mins to Ponte Vecchio, Piazza del Republica, Duomo, etc and the hotel is on a very fashionable street with Prada as its next door neighbour! Our room was spotless and the whole place is full of character. We look forward to returning to Florence and will most definitely be staying at Hotel Scoti again.
