We stayed a couple of nights during a long weekend in Florence. 
LOCATION

 The hotel is located oltrarno, meaning on the other side of Florence, a bit away from the more touristy sites, such as il Duomo and gli Uffici. However, it is steps away from the Ponte Vecchio and you can easily walk to the main areas of Florence....

Room was clean, comfortable, quiet - nothing to improve upon or wish for. Location can't be beat, right between the Pitti Palace and Ponte Vecchio. A quick walk over the bridge to city center, or a stroll down the street to so many artisans on that side of the river. What was unexpected was the rooftop restaurant. Not only was...

The hotel is amazing. Beautiful location and view from the room. The staff was amazing. My girlfriend and I stayed for a total of 6 nights. At one point we misplaced our passports and the hotel went above and beyond to help us with the replacement process. I felt at home. La Scaletta definitely enhanced my florence experience. I will...

I (and five other ladies) had the opportunity of staying here in October, 2014, and it is exactly as their website describes: "Charming 3 stars hotel in historical center of Florence".

Getting to the hotel is not easy as you are very limited on what strees you can use and when. Also, when you get to the hotel you have to musle you luggage up stairs to get to the tiny elevator. That said, the location is great, the rooms are quite nice, free good Wifi, and a roof top restaurant...

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.
