My friend and I spent about a day in Florence. Our stay at La Scaletta was wonderful. They graciously kept our bags as we explored the city the next day. The porter was awesome and helped us carry around our very heavy backpacks. They have heated towel racks (it was awesome). We wished we could've stayed for longer. The hotel...

My daughter and I traveled to Italy to see my brother who lives outside Venice and to attend a wedding for my daughter's friend. Since we were there for 10 days my brother and his wife took us to Florence. We stayed at Hotel La Scaletta and were not disappointed. The view from the upstairs terrace is beautiful! We also...

Traveled here with a group of 10, 6 adults and 4 kids. We LOVED this place. The staff was helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the location, well, the location is ideal. Steps away from the Arno and the famous jewelers bridge. Breakfast on the terrace is a thing of dreams. The view! The view! We...

The location is amazing, a quick walk from all the sights and some great restaurants. But don't miss their rooftop restaurant, the views are phenomenal and the food as well! The room was lovely and spacious overlooking the Bobali Gardens.

Room is nice, location is great, people on reception are cool and helpfull. They will help you with luggage - just ask (you will need it, trust me). View from the roof is amazing! Navigation in hotel between floors is not very simple - many tourists write it and this is true. My only advice - do not eat breakfast...

Dear Mr. M., Thanks for your review, we are glad that you enjoyed our services, view from the terraces and location. We agree with you about the navigation inside the Hotel but that's the characteristics of a XV century palace. We are sorry about breakfast and we'll work on it to improve it. Hope to welcome you again in the...

Hotel has a really good location just a few minutes along from the ponte vecchio. Staff are friendly when approached and helpful. Nice outdoor terrace with rooftop views. Only complaint is that on day two my room was cleaned and restaurant wasn't open (seasonally open) which was ashame. I would recommend a stay here. Be prepared to climb stairs or...

We were able to find this charming hotel with only vague directions. It's easy to find, just off the Ponte Vecchio in Oltarno. First impressions of the staff held through our 4-night stay. They were helpful, accommodating and welcoming with every interaction. Unasked, they even provided a surprise birthday cake for my friend's birthday while we were there. They gave...
