    Location is very good, but not reachable by car.

    Small shower and no heating..

    What a charming, quirky hotel! The floor plan is odd, but the views on the terrace were superb. It was clean, the concierge staff was always available and helpful.

    There is a whole lotta climbing going on... I had sprained my foot so it was not easy to get around the hotel. You need to walk 20 or so steps just to get to the (tiny) elevator, then take it or hike another 96 steps to get to reception; from there, no matter what room you are in, you will be climbing up and down. With an intact foot it would have been great. Handrail up to the terrace needs to be secured.

    Location, staff, history, rooms filled with antiques. The view from the restaruant one of the best in the world. Florence skyline laid out like a dream postcard. Food was good too.

    Definitely needs extra staff to help arriving customers. Too many stairs and hard to find. I found it by sheer luck. Need someone to help +50 guests with luggage. Or a notice that the hotel is NOT senior citizen/handicap friendly.

    Amazing views from terrace, friendly staff, lovely sized modern room.

    I liked everything but if I had to find two things I would say the shower wasn't very hot and it would have been great to have some tea or coffee making facilities in the room.

    Central location. One minute walk - and you are on Ponte Vecchio.

    The hotel has got lots of staircases everywhere. The only elevator that can bring you up is tiny. It was VERY cold in the room (middle of October). Breakfast costs €7 and was ok, but for €10 in the cafe next door you get a better quality. Would not come back to stay there unless in summer and with no luggage.

    We stayed in room 24 which was large compared to most of the hotels we stay at in Europe. There wasn't a view but then we were gone most of the day and night seeing the city. There is a nice terrace area were dinner and drinks are served.

    The restaurant's terrace, on the very top, gives a wonderful view of Florence lit up at night. WE ordered a plate of pasta with clams which was absolutely delicious and their house wine was excellent as well. The close proximity to the Pont Vechio was excellent. The service staff seemed very helpful as well. The hotel's accomodation with a local parking garage is very helpful as well. Since you can't park the car near the hotel, the parking attendant comes out to picks up the car from you after you drop of your luggage. Similarly they bring it to you when you are ready to leae.

    The rooms were really cavernous and seemed like they were way oversized. It smelled and was very dark. Since we were on the floor below the reception desk, lugging the luggage up and down the stairs was not very comforatable. it seemed like it needed a major remodeling. It kind of gae a depressign feel.

    Localização maravilhosa, funcionários amáveis e prestativos, quarto amplo, café da manhã bom, terraço com vista da cidade de Florença (magnífica!)!!

    No contras!!! The fact that the elevator is tiny didn't bother me because they are usually like that in Europe. I was glad that there was an elevator! :)

    The location is awesome...just one block from the Ponte Vechio on the opposite side of the river from town center. Absolutely love the roof top terrace. A great place to have a glass of wine and enjoy the view of downtown Florence. Rooms are spacious and clean but most importantly the beds are comfortable. This was our second stay at La Scaletta in two years. The hotel staff speak wonderful English and are very helpful and accomodating. There is a great grocery store just around the corner if you'd rather pick up breakfast or a light dinner. The hotel staff also gave us an excellent recommendation on a wonderful restaurant. They will keep suitcases if you need to check in early or leave later than checkout.

    Be warned that this hotel is on the top floor of the building (thus the great views of the city) but there are some 93 steps to the top. Depending upon which room you stay in, there are more steps within the hotel. There is a lift but like most of Europe, it is very small. We did not have a problem but it is something to keep in mind if you are elderly or have problems with stairs.

    Excellent and helpful reception staff

    La Scaletta (italian for stairs is right). Not a real problem for us but might present issues for older / less healthy clients or those with very large luggage.

    Very friendly and helpful staff and lots of hot water! Brilliant location (so close to Ponte Vecchio and Pitti palace) spectacular views from the roof terrace.

    Breakfast was not very good so we ate out in a cafe as it worked out cheaper and better.

    The room is incredibly huge!! I was really surprised by the suite with its price! Besides, the view is reeeally beautiful from the hotel restaurant on the terrace!

    Excellent location. Two blocks from Vechia Bridge, castle, restaurants, and shopping. Walking distance from the Duomo and market.

    Not very well sign posted. The hotel is on a one way road, was difficult to find. We parked a few blocks away and had to ask for directions even though we were on the right street but couldn't find the building with the address. We had to walk down another 200 meeters and on left through an archway you could see hotel entrance. This was minor though, overall we really liked the hotel and location.

  • Family with children

    The view from the top of the hotel was definitely the best thing about this hotel. Also it was in an excellent location. The room was large enough and the tv had a couple of english-speaking channels, which was nice for a change. We had a hard time finding the hotel, but by chance we stopped in front of their garage when we called for directions, and the garage folks drove us to the hotel then returned the car to the garage.

    I didn't like that we had to navigate several staircases to get to our room. Although the hotel boasts a lift, it is only a lift to the lobby. Our room was down 2 flights of stairs, and then up 3-4 more steps to get to our room. There were not enough outlets in the room for us to charge all our electronics - phones, cameras, IPad etc. We missed breakfast, so I can't comment on that. I expected the hotel to be overall nicer than it was.
