Very nice hotel, which personally should be a 4-Star and not 3! The reception staff at this hotel are very helpful & always available. The room is very nice and different than norm. Bathroom amazing! Lots of TV channels, well really nothing to complain. Location is just perfect, just few metres away after crossing Ponte Vecchio and few meters away...

Very nice restaurant, just after Casa Rocca Piccola at the end of Republic Street, Valletta. Good starters offered and a fantastic "pasta con i ricci" with all the taste of the sea. Good cake with ricotta from Sicily and very good espresso. All for a very good price

Dear Mrs. L., Thank you for your review but probably you wrote it for the wrong restaurant since we are located between the Pitti Palace and Ponte Vecchio but we hope that next time that you'll be in Florence you'll come to visit us and taste our food, location and service. All the Best!

This is a great location. Staff was friendly. Amazing view from the top of the hotel. But if you can't do or don't like stairs, this is NOT the hotel for you. Tiniest elevator I've ever seen which doesn't actually go to all the floors. We had to go up and then down two staircases to get to our room....

Dear Mrs. Z., Thanks for your review, as written in most of the review and in our web site as well the Hotel name means stairs and that's why it's full of it. It's also our characteristics, the difference between a standard Hotel and an Hotel like ours located in a XV century palace. Anyway We are glad that you...

We had a great stay at Hotel La Scaletta. We stayed here for two nights on a mother-daughter trip in October. The hotel was VERY easy to find, it's almost next to the Palazzo Pitti (also really close to Ponte Vecchio). We really liked its location. The staff was nice and helpful. Our rooms weren't ready when we arrived so...

Florence was our second stop on our honeymoon. Not only did we fall in love with the city, but we also fell in love with La Scaletta. As other reviewers mentioned, the location is perfect!!

This is a brilliant hotel - fantastic location. Wonderful terrace for drinks or breakfast looking over the city. Only a 7 minute walk from the Uffizi, and the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious and very comfortable. Couldn't fault it.

The room was spacious and modern with a great shower. The top terrace at the restaurant offers excellent views of Florence. Second only to the view was the food and service. Raf, the waiter and sommelier, was an absolute pleasure. Thank you Raf!

A block from the Ponte Vecchio makes this hotel a perfect location. A quick walk to the Ufizzi and other museums. Shopping all around you and a terrific market with wonderful leather handbags. Gelato stops on every corner and lots of good restaurants. The price was good.

The hotel is right in the center of Florence and perfect for exploring the city. But given the price of the hotel, the check-in staff was rude and unhelpful. Also, they charge extra for a mediocre breakfast buffet. The room was spacious but very basic.

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.
