"Best Cheap and Charming Hotel in Florence" Hotel Cestelli Tip by pieces

Hotel Cestelli, Florence: 226 reviews and 1 photos

  Our room at Hotel Cestelli in Florence
by pieces

We stayed in this wonderful hotel for 6 nights and we doubt there would be any competition in Florence at the price we payed. The room was large and superbly and subtly decorated, it had a big sofa in the corner and a wash basin behind a privacy screen. Accessing the shared bathroom involved walking past the quiet reception desk but it was constantly cleaned and fresh. This hotel receives the strongest recommendation of any from our 2005 Europe trip. It would be even better if the rooms had TV to help you chill out and keep up with the news.

Unique Qualities: The wonderful friendly and tranquil atmosphere in this hotel is because it is run by a stylish young couple. They take pride in the hotel which they also live in. Their english (and Japanese, I believe) was above average for Italy and enables them to show their guests fantastic hospitality in Florence.

Address: Borgo SS. Apostoli, 25, 50123 Firenze - Italy
Price Comparison: less expensive than average
Directions: Very central, 2 minutes from the Ponte Vecchio and alongside much more expensive hotels. You can easily walk everywhere in Florence from here.
