Alessio and Asumi are wonderful, helpful, friendly people. The hotel is really good value considering the high prices in Florence. It's basic but very clean and is in a fantastic location, walking distance to everywhere you want to go.

I paid 90 euros a night for this hotel. It had no air-conditioning and it was 40 degrees outside. There was just a small fan by the side of the bed. Just one small soap in the bathroom. No shampoo etc. or hairdryer. The wi-fi doesn't work in the bedrooms. You have to sit in a dark corner near the...

Hotel Cestelli is a really good place to stay in Florence. The location is excellent, very close to the Rialto bridge, and the rooms are nice and spacious. The owners (Alessio and Asumi) are very friendly and helpful, and gave us lots of good recommendations for places to eat etc. The value for money is also very good, and the...

Alessio and Azumi were brilliant hosts. Alessio loves Florence and gave us all the information we needed to make the most of our time there. Our room was spacious,well furnished and spotlessly clean with our own bathroom. Location was perfect.

Hotel Cestelli has an advantageous location. It's not far from the main train station (SMN) and a block away from the Arno, which allowed us to explore both sides of the river by foot. The room was charming with a view to the street. Finally, we can't say enough about Alessio and Asumi's hospitality. They gave us a very warm...

Alessio and Asumi were such gracious hosts! Our room was enormous, and although we had a shared bathroom never had to wait to use it. The internet worked well. Alessio gave us a map and pointed out some sites to see. We asked for restaurant recommendations and ended up going twice to a restaurant they recommended. We would definitely stay...

No breakfast, no soap, they don't clean the room every day. It's more like a hostel but with private bathroom. Good location.—----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Our room was huge and had a very pretty chandelier hanging from the ceiling. After many days of sharing bathrooms in Switzerland, I was happy to get our own private bathroom. The shower area was really small though; I kept feeling the shower curtain on my back while showering. The owners were nice and friendly. They gave us a map...

Staying in Uffizi

Neighbourhood Profile
Uffizi
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
