Guest reviews for Hotel La Scaletta Al Ponte Vecchio

4 out of 5
Easy walking distance to Uffizi, Ponte Vecchio, Pitti Palace, and about 15 minutes walk to train station. The hotel is on a busy, bustling street, so if traffic noise bothers you, this might not be your place! Room was spotless, bathroom was luxurious and modern. A word of advice: if you'd like to dine at the rooftop restaurant, reserve your table when you reserve your room--there are only a few tables and they book up fully. Wish I'd known that ahead of time! We still got to enjoy the view of Florence at the rooftop bar. Breakfast service was good--but does cost extra. Really good gelato place on the first floor.
