Stunning peaceful and beautiful
Great place to stay. Well worth it for a treat. Junior suite was stunning and the bath a real highlight. So peaceful and away from the madding crowds of the ponte vecchio. Breakfast was fantastic and great value.

In The Thick of The Action.
La Scaletta is housed in a collection of beautiful old buildings right in the thick of the action between the Pitti Palace and the Ponte Vecchio. It couldn't be more conveniently situated. The staff in all areas were very friendly and efficient and the rooms are very spacious. The breakfast was very good and the coffee excellent and served with a lovely smile. There's a beautiful bar on the rooftop with the most amazing views...we went on a Monday evening and because the restaurant was closed, we had the place to ourselves. The only gripe I would have is the quality of the toiletries on offer, a very minor issue. Parking is expensive and not particularly convenient because you have to request your car to be delivered about an hour in advance...I would say book your own car park with easier access. I recommend La Scaletta if you want to be in a quirky historic building with interesting outlooks...a refreshing change from the bog standard cookie cutter American style hotels.

It's in a great location. It's an old building, so no so convenient to get around inside. The stairs were tedious on a day to day basis--but the views at the top were fabulous, so there's the trade off.

Easy walking distance to Uffizi, Ponte Vecchio, Pitti Palace, and about 15 minutes walk to train station. The hotel is on a busy, bustling street, so if traffic noise bothers you, this might not be your place! Room was spotless, bathroom was luxurious and modern. A word of advice: if you'd like to dine at the rooftop restaurant, reserve your table when you reserve your room--there are only a few tables and they book up fully. Wish I'd known that ahead of time! We still got to enjoy the view of Florence at the rooftop bar. Breakfast service was good--but does cost extra. Really good gelato place on the first floor.
