Lovely place and fabulous service!
The hotel was in a great location, walkable to all the museums that we were interested in. The room was great and Bijan at the front desk was very helpful. The breakfast was wonderful. Whenever a hotel offers a free breakfast it’s usually just minimal. This was really fantastic- fresh croissants, jams, scrambled eggs, cheeses and meats, freshly squeezed orange and grapefruit juice and fantastic coffees! Lovely place!

It is closed to the train station, walking distance and easy to find. It is closed to all the important sight seeing. Is also closed to the train that is going to the airport. It only takes about 20 minutes to get to the airport.

Lo único por mejorar es el ascensor que es muy lento, pero no es solo del hotel si no de la propiedad completa entiendo que no pueda ser mejor por única disposición del hotel.

Great accommodation at a reasonable price
We really enjoyed our stay at Hôtel La Scala. It is conveniently located near the Florence SMN station. Very easy to walk to major sites. Staff was very friendly and welcoming. Not the most luxurious accommodations but the positives far outweigh any negatives. Bathrooms were very updated and better than most 4 star hotels. A great place to stay for a quick visit to Florence!
