I like the supser central location, the nice elegant building and the retro flare of the place, a real home a little bit old but overall well kept Nice, essential bedroom, old bathroom, very nice and welcoming staff. Reasonable prices. There is no breakfast room, so they try their best: breakfast on a tray, you can ask for what you like and have a good breakfast in your room looking at the beautiful Via Tornabuoni.
I was first stunned by the beauty and location . First through the door next to Prada in the main shopping street. Upstairs I was welcomed into the salon with better ancient wallmurals than the museums. My room was warm and comfortable . Perfect location and helpful experienced hostess.. but the freedom to come and go day and night..like a home from home.
The Hotel Scoti is a charming old Pensione in the heart of Florence. The rooms feature chandeliers, candelabra, stained glass and plush period furniture, all a little faded but elegant still. What it lacks in mod cons, it makes up for in Florentine ambience. The location in a narrow cobbled street in the midst of the fashion district is fabulous.
I would highly recommend anybody travelling to Florence to stay in the Hotel Scoti. The building was amazing, perfectly located in the centre of Florence & such a gorgeous historical building. Doreen the host was very helpful and friendly and a lovely person.
If you judge this property by "McHotels", you will be sadly disappointed. Plus: the location! It is the ideal location in Florence with all of the major sites/sights within a short walk. The building is a former palace from the 15th c. You can see the "bones" of its former glory. The owner/host is very efficient, gracious, and helpful. She makes herself available whenever needed. The rooms have the minimum of what you need for comfort. Word of "warning": Italians do not sleep with windows open at night. The idea is to open the windows in the cool morning air and at the end of the day but not at dusk. Florence has a lot of mosquitoes. There is no A/C, and for centuries, this has worked for Florentines. Minus: When we made our reservation, we were not told that breakfast was not included in the price, and more importantly, that the offer we responded to meant rooms facing the street. There is a lot of noise from people talking, street musicians, and general revelry rather late into the night, even with the window closed. If you want lots of fancy furniture and other amenities, you will be disappointed. If you are looking for a clean bed and bath, just large enough for two, this is ok. I do agree that walking up the steps, one could smell cooking from other people not in the hotel but in the building. That day, it smelled like cabbage, of all things. If you want an authentic experience which is increasingly harder to find, you will like this place. The price for this location is unbeatable.…
Hotel Scoti is located in the heart of beautiful Florence. It is amazingly easy to get around on foot and our hostess, “Doreen” was so very helpful. She suggested the best times to go to various sights and recommended great vistas and restaurants. She was always available for questions, the source for Florence sight seeing hacks! The rooms were clean and the building (which is 400 years old) has great character. We definitely recommend this Hotel!
Doreen is a great charming hostess and never held back to give us advice about where to go and what to see. She's brilliant as the person running the place. The location is great... Always a few 100 meters away from any important tourist place in Florence and all the big brands are just downstairs on the street below, in case you are looking at shopping at Fendi, Prada, Gucci et al. We always had fresh towels, beds made every day, room was heated well in advance of our arrival etc. Housekeeping was excellent! Large wardrobes and chest of drawers for storage. Very spacious rooms and the place has charm. Wish we had few more plug points to charge more than one laptop and an option for brighter lights in the room. The entry by lift, since the hotel is shared with some other apartments on the same floor and in the same building, seems a bit of a maze to enter and exit. If the club downstairs doesn't have a party, then you could hear a pin drop, but otherwise, would be a good idea to carry some earplugs for you to have a good night's sleep. Also, would've been great to have a holder for soaps and shampoo bottles in the shower. Overall, great place. Great location. Great hostess. Great housekeeping and cleanliness.…
500 old building perfectly maintained, keeping the royal majestic look with high thick walls and vintage furniture. The common living room is amazing, like in a palace. We really felt like living in The Medici's time. The bedroom is just as in the pictures, simple and cozy, just what we needed. If you're looking for a fancy place with many facilities, then this is not suitable for you. Internet was problematic, and it doesn't even have a TV. However this would only affect the vintage atmosphere, so for us it was the perfect sweet escape from the consumerism era. Cozy and clean, in a perfect top central location, close to everything. Most importantly, Doreen is a wonderful host, always there to help with best local tips and anything.
We booked this hotel because one of our travel guidebooks recommended it. The hotel shares with other residents on the same floor and the proprietor used air refresher heavily in order to cover up tobacco smoke from one of their neighbours. The air was awful. When we arrived and noticed the bad smell, we asked why it was like that. The proprietor told us it was from the street and it’d be cleared if we kept the window closed. It was only after a bad night’s sleep with a lot of coughing, the proprietor revealed that the smokiness was from their neighbour. As they couldn’t improve the air quality in the hotel, we had to leave. The proprietor overcharged us with threats that they’d make sure we couldn’t stay elsewhere if we didn’t pay the higher rate they demanded. This experience ruined the first two days of our holiday.…
A beautiful hotel on the second floor of a Florentine palace. Guests get shared use of the landscape-painted room in the photos, and it is as stylish as the photos suggest. Rooms are our sort of old-fashioned: no television (use the wifi), minibar (real bars nearby) or air-conditioning (peace!), but spacious and elegant. Welcoming owner, with helpful local information. Ideal location: A-list frescos in the nearby Santa Trinita, short-walk to the river. All major attractions were within walking distance.
