8/10 Very good

Great location, hotel layout not the best
Pros: Excellent location, close to all the sights. Breakfast terrace was great with an amazing city view. Breakfast itself was also good. Bathroom was spacious and well designed. Hairdryer provided in bathroom. Cons: Had the small room which had a very odd configuration/weird layout. Main issue was with the two very narrow flights of stairs to reach the rooms. There is no lift. Would be difficult with large luggage. Hotel staff did not help with the bags. No kettle/teabags in the room.

Disappointing
Unfortunately we will not be returning to La Scaletta on our next visit to Florence. We had stayed previously and found it to be a charming and well-kept hotel; however this time we were very disappointed in the room and the staff. It would seem that as we were a last minute booking at a very good price, we did not deserve one of their better rooms. We thought we had upgraded to a Deluxe room but for some reason, those rooms are on the ground floor with windows high up in the wall that made it feel like a jail. The bed was hard as a rock, the pillows were almost non-existent they were so flat, and the shower in the bathroom, while very large, had a large crack in the wall. When we questioned the staff the answer was that was a very good, very large room and we should be happy with it for the price we paid. When we asked to be moved to what the Hotels.com website indicated was a lesser room, they grudgingly showed us their “last available room” on the 2nd floor which was a definite improvement to the room we were originally given as it had big windows and a very nice bathroom. All that aside, the second room still had a hard bed and non-existent pillows which is why we will not return.

The hotel location is perfect. The room is good and clean but the wifi during the time i was there was really bad. They put me in the basement and i seriously had no internet. 0 internet. The staff was trying to troubleshoot by reset the router but no hope. Yep, we all know it wont work just by reset on and off. They need to figure out how to make the wifi travel to the basement floor
