My friend and I stayed here recently based on all the great reviews we read here and we weren't disappointed! The owners were sweethearts and very helpful about which restaurants to go to. The room was spacious and well-designed with high ceilings. We had a shared bathroom but it was always so clean this was never a problem! The location...

I recently stayed here with my family and we loved it. Our room was gorgeous and had lovely views from the windows. Alessio and Asumi, the owners, were very friendly and helpful and the hotel is in a wonderful location - near to both the station and the Ponte Vecchio. This probably isn't the best place to stay if modern...

We stayed at Hotel Cestelli for five days in Room 8, which was tremendously large, sparsely but beautifully decorated and the perfect quiet space to revive in after a long day walking around the city. There really is a homey feel to the place, and everything in the place was immaculately kept up and handled with care. I loved coming...

My wife and l just spent several nights at Hotel Cestelli at the end of March and absolutely loved our stay. We have traveled throughout Italy and this was by far our favorite place. From the ambience, energy, decor and most friendly and helpful owners, Alessio and Assumi, we could not have had a more enjoyable stay. The room was...

My fiance and I had a wonderful experience at Hotel Cestelli. Promptly greeted by the gracious hosts, we were led to a spotless & gorgeous authentic-style Italian room, with an extremely comfortable king size bed. Tastefully and minimally decorated it enabled us to be captivated by the complex beauty of Firenze (Florence). Hotel Cestelli's simple yet elegant accomodations were remarkable...

We, too, like other travellers chose this hotel based on the previous reviews. We were not dissapointed. It was a nice, clean cozy room within walking distance to all the sights. The price, 85 euro a night was also good. Also, be sure to ask the owners for their recomendations. We got great tips on restaurants and a great place...

We chose this due to the overwhelming positive reviews posted. The hotel is in a convenient part of town, near Ponte Vecchio. As we arrived by taxi and walked up the two flights of stairs, we noticed the moldy smell in the stairwell. The reception area was warm and welcoming with burning incense, and the room was large. However, the...

Staying in Uffizi

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
