Hotel Cestelli is located close to the bridges on a narrow road. It is close to all of the important landmarks yet feels less touristy. Alessio provided a map with very detailed notations on where to go and areas to avoid. His suggestions allowed us to have the best Florence experience without getting caught up in the craziness of the tourist bus influx in the morning. The room was huge, comfortable and clean, however, there is a lot of street noise so if you are a light sleeper, you may want to request a room off the street.

The hosts are lovely, helpful, thoughtful!
Located close to the Arno, Ponte Vecchio, Ufizzi, shopping, but in a quiet (by Florence standards), back street. This isn't a luxury hotel the decor is plain. Our room was large, with a double and a single and still lots of space. Beds were comfortable.

We stayed here for 3 nights and absolutely loved it - they were so kind and helpful, and the room was large, elegant and comfortable. Would definitely stay here again - perfect location for exploring Florence but away from all the tourist noise.

This is an interesting "hotel". I say that, with the quotes, because in some respects it is more like a hostel than a hotel; perhaps I could have or should have done more research. I would rate it 3/5 or Average for the cons: At least five rooms share one bathroom, which is back behind reception next to, I think, two rooms, but there's another short hallway from there to rooms 5 to 8, I think it was. Room 5 has a little step up then down at the door. The bathroom has no shelf, cabinet, or table on which to set your things. The bathroom sink has no hot water tap. And the one time I don't take my travel hair dryer, there isn't a guest hair dryer. Lastly, the elevator was under construction, and one of the stair railings was loose. The stairs were not bad, the hotel being on the 1st floor, and I appreciate the issues of elevators in 12th century buildings, but it's not ideal when one is tired, with luggage. At the same time, I would rate 5/5 or excellent for the pros: Alessio and Asumi are friendly and attentive hosts. The main areas and room were spotless and welcoming. The location is excellent, and for what you get, the price cannot be beat.

I booked this hotel pretty last minute as my friend decided to join me on my trip and the hostel I had previously booked for myself had filled. I am surprised they had availability based on how great it was, the extremely reasonable price, and the prime location. You are less than a 20 minute walk to all the main attractions and minutes away from the ponte vechio.

This hotel is just 8 bedrooms but they are quite spacious, with ample cupboard space, a reasonable sized bed, and a mirror and sink. The bathroom is shared (not sure between how many rooms but I only had to wait once) and is extremely well maintained. I am fairly certain the owners went in and cleaned it after every use! You receive towels and I believe they change them every 3 days.There's no A/C in the rooms but they put a fan in so heat wasn't too big of an issue (even in the summer).

When we first arrived, Alessio spent at least 15 minutes giving us a detailed explanation of a map and the best attractions and food places and anytime we asked him about places to go, he always had recommendations.

When you leave everyday, they ask you to leave the keys so they can clean the room and as long as you are back before 8 it is not a problem getting back in. If you know you're going to stay out past 8, you can forgo the cleaning and take the keys so as long as you've planned your day this shouldn't be an issue.

My only complaint is the wifi only worked in part of the room but if anything this gave us incentive to go out and explore and waste less time on our phones. A fridge would also have been ideal.

Overall, a fantastic hotel for anyone on a budget who still wants a pleasant experience
