This is a lovely hotel in the old section of Florence. The rooms are very cleam and the atmosphere is welcoming. On arrival we were shown all the key places to see, eat and avoid which helped greatly with our stay in Florence. Our room was large and airy and was very comfortable. I would recommend anybody to stay here.

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Cestelli for 6 nights during the last week of September, 2006. I don't have much to add to the previous reviews. Alessio and Asumi are indeed gracious hosts. We stayed in room 5, which was a large room with it's own bathroom. The street noise, in my opinion, was a bit much...

We stayed at Hotel Cestelli for 4 nights and really loved it. The location is terrific, the owners are fantastic and friendly, and the room had a wonderful antique look and feel to it. Highly recommended.

Staying in the Hotel Cestelli is a unique esperience, taking the traveler back in time to a previous era when one stayed in small family style hotels and felt like a person and not a number. This is not an experience for a person who is expecting four star service for two star prices. There is no TV, phone, or...

There are already a lot a reviews, so I'll keep it brief. The owners are very nice and friendly, very helpful, youthful, and both enthusiastic and discreet. (Perfect!) The hotel is "old fashioned" in that it is like small European hotels from days past -- a big old building where you need to get buzzed in and go up some...

We were delighted that all reviews for Hotel Cestelli came true and we enjoyed a pleasurable few nights stay there recently. The hotel exudes a sense of calmness and tranquility which we felt was vital after a day of walking/queuing and sightseeing! The owners, a friendly italian/Japanese couple were always willing to share their thoughts on where best to go...

My husband and I decided to stay at Hotel Cestelli for 4 nights in September after reading excellent reviews on the Lonely Planet and tripadvisor websites. Not only did it live up to all the great reviews, we felt it was the best hotel we stayed at in Italy even though we paid twice as much for others in Rome...

Myself and two other women shared a large room at this hotel in June. Overall it was an excellent experience and I would stay here again.

The owners were great and really nice. They had great recommendations for restaurants and things to do around the city. I loved the location. Very close to the main attractions, but just far enough away from the crowds. The room was huge, sparsly decorated, but extremely clean. The bathroom was ok. The clingy shower curtain drove me nuts. It would...

My partner and I spent five wonderful days in Florence. Our trip was enhanced by the oasis of the Hotel Cesteli. Hosts Alessio and Asumi, are attentive and ever present. They gave great advice to us; we really had done almost no research on what to do while we were in Florence. The hotel is well located, quiet but convenient....

Staying in Uffizi

Neighbourhood Profile
Uffizi
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
