La Scaletta is a hidden gem in Florence. The location is perfect for all of the major attractions in Florence. The hotel service was excellent. The room was comfortable with plenty of space. The roof-top reference provided very good food with an excellent view of Florence. The only down-side is that there are 97 steps to the hotel lobby, but...

I will start with the negatives. The air conditioner is very loud to a point that my friend asked me to turn it off while we slept. The air conditioner is also non adjustable, only the temperature but for some reason it would not heat the room when I tried to put it to 25 to dry my clothes. The...

Dear Mr. S., Thanks for the review and for the time used to write it. It's such a pity that instead of advise the reception staff about the problems that you had during the stay you easily wrote them in your review. Everything can be explain and solved. Air conditioning system is totally new and the only "noise" that you...

Great location and awesome roof-top restaurant. Extremely helpful staff. Rooms were small but AC worked great and bathroom/shower was terrific especially for a big person like me. The small elevator was challenging as were the stairs but for us added to the charm. Did I mention the roof-top?

Fantastic location for exploring the old part of Florence, many of the best restaurants and boutique shops are on this side of the river! A great hotel with very friendly and helpful staff.

I'm not going to tell you about the excellent service, fantastic location and beautiful room, and I'm definitely not going to mention the rooftop breakfast and dinner (book it!), just in case this hotel gets really popular and is full next time I want to stay. Highly recommended! One note of caution - there are lots of steps up to...

Absolutely beautiful rooftop patio. Recommend heading to the top level for the best experience. Fabulous staff that was fun to chat with. Close to all major destinations. Head to Piazzale Michelangelo for the best view of the city. Only knock was that the internet was sporadic. Had to keep asking the staff to reset the router. Only issue because we...

This hotel has a great setting right in the old city located between the Pitti Palace and the Ponte Vecchiao. The rooftop terrace offers great views over the Boboli Gardens and over the river to Il Duomo.

All communications with the staff were prompt and courteous. My family was meeting there from two different directions and times and they were very helpful and accommodating. Finding reception in the building was confusing at first since I wasn't expecting to find it on the third floor. The new sign (being installed the day we arrived) definitely helped directing us....

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.
