Usually you're use to tiny hotels with really small rooms in Europe but this hotel was such a wonderful exception! From the moment we arrived, the front desk was helpful and kind. The rooms were huge and great for myself and a girl friend for a weekend away. And the location is spectacular! 50m from ponte vecchio meaning you are... More

Hotel is less than 1 minute from the Ponte Vecchio bridge, a little bit of a trek from the train station (35 mins), but once you are there, perfect for site seeing and restaurants.

We stayed at La Scaletta for five days in September, on our first visit to Firenze. The location of the hotel is excellent, in a short walking distance from everything.

We had a short, 2 night but very pleasing stay at LaScaletta.

Staying in Pitti

Neighbourhood Profile
Pitti
Pitti is a neighborhood characterized by art and history. Renaissance architecture such as Pitti Palace, which houses five museums alone, introduces visitors to the green lungs of spectacular Boboli Gardens. Any visitor can wander through statues, fountains, and panoramic viewpoints. Around the garden, treasures like the Museum of Natural History of the Specola and Villa Bardini guide guests through Florence as the cradle of the Renaissance. End the day with an aperitif in Piazza della Passera or the more romantic Forte di Belvedere, which offers an amazing panoramic view of the entire city.
