We found this hotel online and decided to give it a try. The last time we were in Florence we stayed near the Piazza della Repubblica, which was centrally located but hectic because of that. The La Scaletta is between the Pitti Palace and the Ponte Vecchio. Like other hotels in Florence, it is not a freestanding building, but is... More

My fiance and I loved Hotel La Scaletta. I did so much research on hotels for our trip and once we arrived the hotel surpassed our expectations. We received a very warm welcoming, a beautiful, modern, clean room and absolutely the perfect location. The icing on the top might have been our little coffee in the morning all the way... More

Hotel La Scaletta was a very pleasant surprise to find. I stayed in the off season so the price was very reasonable. It was located a few short blocks from the Ponte Vecchio Bridge just across the river from the tourist areas, near the Pitti, and a short walk to the Uffizi. The staff were very accommodating and the breakfast... More

The rooms were superb! Clean, neat, stylish and extremely comfortable. Everything you could have needed was there, and the location was perfect for exploring Florence, whatever the time of day. Their roof top bar offered superb 360 degree views across the city, perfect for a glass of your favourite beverage and watching the sun go down. Lots of tasty local... More

Located just a block south of Ponte Vecchio, it's close to all the action without being completely overrun by people. You pay a premium for this location but it's well worth it.

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

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.... More

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.
