Excellent hotel

Cellai is very nice and room were quite spacios for Europe standard. It's well located close to Mercato Centrale and San Lorenzo and about 10 minutes walking to the Duomo. Staff was very receptive and breakfast excelent. The street is a little busy with local buses during the night.

Great find!!!

I have stayed many times in Florence for business, this was my first time on vacation. Even though this hotel was not the 5 star I usually stay at, it was a wonderful experience. The staff was gracious, the hotel is beautiful and location can't be beat. Enjoy the sunset with a bottle of wine on the roof terrace. For the price it's a little jewel!

hotel cellai

My wife and I were pleasantly surprised by the hospitality, cleanliness, and excellent location of our hotel in Florence. We were able to walk into the heart of historical Florence. Bus stops were also conveniently located near the hotel if one needs such means of transportation. The breakfast was sufficient composed of croissants meat and cheese, fruit, milk and cereal. The room was very comfortable and adequate with our personal bath/shower. Despite the cool weather we also utilized the upper floor outside and covered deck which was a great spot for a night cap drink and to process the day. The staff was helpful with directions and wake up calls. My only complaint is the lack of access to a computer and the internet at the hotel for customer use. I did not bring a lab top and would have liked to use a computer to check email and reserve seats on the plane home.

Think Again...

I am very disappointed and regret that I booked this hotel for my 30th birthday trip. \nReading the other people?s reviews, I can?t believe that we stayed at the same hotel! I would never stay here again. \n\nFrom the pictures here and on their web site, it looks like a VERY nice hotel. The room they checked us into on the first night was horrific. Dingy room with cracked wall and broken molding. Nothing looked like those ?photos?! The headboard was old & dirty, and you could see the oily head marks. (if you know what I mean) The bathroom was very, VERY small that one person could barely move around. It seriously made me feel suffocated. Plus it was on the 4th floor, so absolutely, no water pressure. Throughout the hotel, there was this strange musty smell?even the (thin) towels smelled funny. We paid over $200 for the first night!\n\nSince it was the New Year?s Eve and sold out, they gave us another room (happened to be on the 2nd floor) the next day. It sure was better than the first room, but it was just okay. We had a good water pressure, though! It definitely was not a 3-star hotel room either. Construction was going on, so if you are lucky, you may get to stay at a newly renovated room. Then you could be a happy customer?! \n\nLocation was good. About 10 min walk to Duomo. The hotel staff were okay. They wouldn?t greet you when you come in/out of the hotel, though. \n\nPlease don?t be fooled by the ?nice lighting? pictures! \n

Great Hotel

We enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Cellai very much. It was clean, the staff was friendly, helpful, and informative. It was at the center of everthing, we walked everywhere. I would definitely go back to this hotel if ever in Florence again.

Great Hotel

Cellai is a wonderful place to stay. The location is perfect--in walking distance to all the Florence attractions. There's a store across the street for necessities, if you've forgotten something or are there for an extended stay. The rooftop garden was very relaxing and cozy. When I was there, I missed my outgoing flight (perhaps because subconsciously I couldn't bear to leave Florence!), and couldn't get a flight out until the next day. Unfortunately, Cellai was booked that night because that was a long weekend for Italians and many were coming to spend it in Florence, but the desk clerk kindly offered to find me other accomodations. She called three other hotels before she found one with a vacancy, made sure it was of good quality, got a price quote, and drew out a map for me to get there (it was just around the corner, but she did offer to call me a cab if I wanted). She did not have to do that, and I really appreciated it. I will definitely be staying here for what I hope will be many more trips to Florence in the future.

Great find

We were very happy at Hotel Cellai. The location was walking distance from almost everything we wanted to see. The staff was helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean and the beds fairly comfortable. The roof deck was a great welcoming place to enjoy a drink after a long day. It was also a great place to meet new people.
