The rooftop view is magnificent. The hotel staff very helpful and friendly. Our family room was large and clean. Scaletta means steps and there are lots of them throughout the hotel - it is a very quirky shape and despite a very small lift at the entrance which barely takes 2 people plus luggage, I have no complaints. The location...

Dear Mr. G., Thank you very much for the nice review. Well the Hotel is in a XV cent. palace and for this reason we have some "restrictions" but we work everyday to offer the best service in order to let our guest live a perfect stay. After the works that we did the family room is one of my...

La Scaletta is one of the nicest hotel from Florence. The location where it is situated makes it to be a best choice to stay either if you are visiting or if you are in a business trip. The staff is joyful and full of passion. The rooms are great, they are cosy and have a gorgeous view.

Wonderful hotel in a fantastic location, just next to the Ponte Vecchio. The reception staff pre-booked us a time to visit both the Uffizi Gallery and Accademia Gallery so we were able to go straight in and not queue for hours. The city is buzzing and busy, but our room (Blue room) was peaceful and quiet. The weather during our...

Hotel La Scaletta is conveniently located two blocks from the Ponte Vecchio and down the street from the Pitti Palace and Boboli Gardens. Restaurants, museums, and gardens are very close and walkable, and I even walked to the train station once in only 20 minutes! Despite being on a busy street, the nights were quiet, and the air-conditioning was wonderful....

Dear Mr. R., Thanks for your kind review and I confirm you that making a direct booking with the Hotel web site or by email is cheaper and give you more facilities. Well we don't have a real gym but the 97 steps from the ground floor to the 3rd floor are a good exercise and are included in the...

Friendly and helpful staff, great location and variety of unusual and great food at breakfast with view on the gardens! I warmly recommend it! Might be difficult for elderly and pregnant women as well as physically impaired because there are lots of stairs though.

When we return to Florence, we'll return to Hotel La Scaletta! La Scaletta is close to everything but not in the middle of it. It was perfect for us.

This is a great location. Close to everything, yet just a little off the main fare to give a quiet nights sleep. Breakfast was outstanding. Stayed in the Brown suite. Lots of room and great bathroom with walk in shower. Would recommend to anyone!

Amazing view from the top terace; nice staff, great breakfast and perfect location in the historical-center of the city. We went with our 2 and a half daughter and the food was also suitable for her. We asked for a quiet room and we received a good one, with a very nice view facing Belvedere Fort. We loved the experience!...

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.
