"Family run hotel near the Arno River."
We had a lovely time during our week long stay. We checked in after a weekend on the coast so we were a little late in the evening. The owners were not available so we were checked in by the owner's mother whose English was as good as our Italian (which means, almost non-existent.) That said, she was gracious and made us welcome despite our lack of […] Italian. Both owners, Alessio & Asumi, were friendly and happy to help us find our way around Florence. Asumi is originally from Japan (they met as college students in California) so this is a great hotel for Japanese tourists as well as English speakers. The location is just around the block from the Ponte Santa Trinita where we had many great sunsets over the Arno. The hotel is walking distance from most attractions which made it a great home base. High end fashion house Ferragamo is just doors away as are other designers like Dior, which makes window shopping great fun. Delicious gelato is just across the river in the Oltrarno at the south side of the Ponte Alla Carraia. It's worth the walk! We definitely recommend this hotel for the more flexible traveler.

Really enjoyed our stay there! The husband and wife who run the place were excellent hosts and were so helpful in figuring out what to do in Florence! It had a very B & B feel to it!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"No AC plenty of rules"
Reserved for 3 nights but left after 2. Room was hot @ uncomfortable. 0 amenities but many rules. Opted to leave knowing a refund was unlikely. Would have been more acceptable at lower price point: I.e 2 towels for 3 days for 2 people, expected to leave keys with staff even though they stop work at 8 & without keys you can't get in the building. Lots […] of steps, no elevator & must carry own bags. No hairdryer, no shampoo, no tv, wifi did not work in our room, had to sit in hall to get internet. All could be ignored if room had been 70 euros rather than 100. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Amazing city, amazing location. That's it"
This is my first time to Florence so I only have this hotel as my reference. The location was key with this hotel. Couldn't have been much better. Great location however the hotel itself was not much else. The hallway smelled like stale air. The room had a window that looked at a interior brick wall with bars and didn't open. There is no air condition […] in the room at all. ITS A SHARED BATHROOM. You have to share with 8 other tenets. There is NO parking if you are driving. None. The owners are fantastic. Very nice and helpful. The bed was old and decor was old. Lots of picture frames with no pictures. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful people, safe convenient location"
I am an 18 year old female traveling alone from the U.S. I was quite nervous to stay in a foreign city alone for several nights and safety was very important to me. Not once did I feel uncomfortable or unsafe staying at Hotel Cestelli. It is located very close to the Arno river to it is easy to find your way back to the hotel if you get lost. The surrounding […] area is all high end luxury stores that is extremely well lit at night. The hotel itself was very nice and charming. The owners were always available and very accommodating. They gave me advice on where to go and held my bags for several hours after my check out time. The room was plain but had everything necessary and a window that provided a nice breeze. Over all, Hotel Cestelli made my trip to Florence extremely enjoyable! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect little hotel 10 seconds from Ponte Vecchio"
This hotel was one of the highlights of my 8 week backpacking trip! Location couldn't be better - within 5 minutes walking from everywhere (15 to David) and out the door to Ponte Vecchio. Tons of great shopping, sights and gelato nearby! Hotel was spotlessly clean, beds were comfy, and the price was a steal for being this close to everything. But the […] best part by far of my stay was the lovely couple who own the hotel! So so so friendly and accommodating and spent so much time giving recommendations and making sure I loved Florence as much as they do. Can't speak more highly of them - even when the hotel was full with people coming and going they remembered my name. You just don't find people and service like this anymore. Stay here! Perfect for solo female travelers - extremely safe at all hours. Seriously, stay here! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Location can not be more than perfect - right in the heart of everything and about 15 min walk from train and bus station. the owners are lovely couple (italian married with a japanese lady) who gave very good suggestions on local restaurants that aren't crammed with tourists. Shared bathroom but very clean (i think they clean it right after they hear […] anybody using it!) - water is a little small but works fine in summer times I'm sure. For the price you pay, it's definitely value for money. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Stay here in Florence"
The owner is incredibly friendly. As soon as you enter, he sits down with you and goes over the map to help you identify what you want to do in Florence and how you can best manage your time/interests. The wifi works great, unlikely many hotels in Italy. The facilities and rooms are clean and nicely decorated. It's right next to the Uffizi, which should […] be on anyone's stay in Florence, a 15 minute walk from the Academie (Michaelangelo's David) and the main train station. Close to everything. Great and friendly service, clean and lovely accomodations...what's not to like? Stay here. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect Visit to Florence"
I was traveling alone to Florence to visit my sister. I picked this hotel because of the positive reviews and because it was a five minute walk from my sister's apartment. The one star didn't really concern me because the price and location were perfect, but I was so very pleasantly surprised to find the hotel exceeding all of my expectations! My room […] (#3) was immaculate, quiet, and just right for my four nights away. If you're looking for a hotel chock-full of amenities, perhaps look elsewhere. You won't have the basket of shampoos, blow dryer, mounted TV, or jacuzzi you'd see in many American hotels, but with a city like Florence right outside your window, you really shouldn't be spending too much time in your room anyhow! Alessio and Asumi were wonderful hosts, greeting me each time I came and left the hotel and helping me figure out the logistics of getting to the airport at the crack of dawn on a Sunday. They even let my sister come check out the room I'd be staying in prior to my arrival. If I ever have the opportunity to return to Florence, this is exactly where I'll stay and I will recommend it to anyone looking for a no-frills, home-away-from-home hotel in the heart of that incredible city.

"Amazing location. Downtown and close to everything"
We really enjoyed our stay here and plan to return at the end of our stay. Great food and walking recommendation from the cheerful hosts. This is a definite recommendation especially for the price.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Felt like home"
A very good location, with very good service. This guest house was like staying with family in their home. The couple who run this spot were very friendly, and helpful with information on Florence and Tuscany, also helping arrange my tours. The only negative was the bed was really soft. However I will stay here again on my next visit.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and lovely staff.... but.."
Expectations were not met, but this was entirely my fault. I was in a rush to book and needed a room quickly. My original booking meant I had no bathroom en suite - but this was changed and for 2 of the 3 nights I was with an en suite. Alessio and his lovely wife Asumi are really very nice people and are trying very very hard to make things work..... […] If I had a spare 200,000 Euros to invest in a hotel, I would seriously look at working on something with them. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Handy to train station"
I picked this hotel because it was close to the train station and the reviews said the neighborhood was not scary. This was correct. They seem to be doing lots of renovations and our bathroom was quite large and fairly new and nice. It even had a bathtub! Room smelled like an old ashtray, but not too bad with the window open. Beds were some kind of […] hard foam with a rubber sheet on top! Reception guy was not friendly or particularly helpful, but each time we saw him he seemed to brighten up. Fairly smiley the 3rd time we saw him! Neighborhood is quite noisy and really smelly with urine on the sidewalks, but we found a great restaurant 1 block away with friendly service and the room itself was quiet as it faced a little courtyard.

"I can't recommend this place enough"
For a start, this hotel is in the centre of Florence. The room is beautiful, quiet, clean and relaxed. The place is run by Riccardo and his Japanese wife. Riccardo gave us brilliant advise on where was worth visiting and the best time to do so. We went to him at various times for different problems and he immediately pointed us in the right direction. […] His wife left origami at various points in the hotel which was a brilliant touch. My stay in Florence, a wonderful city, was hugely enhanced by where we stayed.

"가격 만큼인 호텔"
페레가모 박물관 바로 옆이고 베키오 다리 및 베키오 궁전 등 피렌체 주요 관광지랑 접근성이 매우 좋아요. 그런데 주요 상점들 주변이다 보니 가끔 저녁에 시끄럽더라고요. 3일 머무는 동안 수건을 바꿔주시지 않았고 방에서 와이파이가 잘 안 돼서 불편했어요. 그런데 피렌체가 다른 지역보다 물가가 비싼 것 같더라고요. 가격 대비 괜찮은 것 같아요.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

가장 좋았던 점은 친절함과 역과의 거리입니다. 아침 식사는 없어서 개인적으로 해결해야하며 화장실이 공용이라 몰리는 시간(아침타임)은 불편합니다. 하지만 가격대비 전체적으로 만족합니다.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"They are kind of impolite, I'm afraid."
一人旅でイギリスから行ったのですが、到着当日に日本人スタッフがおらずメモ書きだけが残っており後を頼まれたイタリア人の女性(英語、日本語共に離せず)から身振り手振りでの案内があっただけでした。これなら、英語が通じるイタリアのホテルに行った方がよかったと思いました。 次の日日本人の女性オーナーが対応してくださいましたが、話し方が「～だよね」「何か聞きたいことあるかな？」などかなりfrankで「お客様に対する態度なの？」と思ってしまいました。 外国で暮らしていると敬語の概念がなくなるのかもしれませんが、日本人どうしが接する時には重要なことだと思います。 部屋やロビーには折り紙で作ったさまざまな細工が置いてありましたが、旅行する時にはそんなものは求めていないしほかの部分をもう少し注意すべきかと思われ […] ます。 ついでに、朝ご飯がついていないということも当日まで知りませんでした。単に私が知らなかっただけかもしれませんが… イタリアのホテルにはよくあることなのですが、liftがないため荷物をひきずって２階まで階段を上らないといけず、不便です。 Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Super-sauberes Zimmer, unschlagbare Lage"
Die beiden Betreiber des kleinen Hotel Cestelli sind extrem freundlich und zuvorkommend.

"Super nice hotel in the center of Florence!"
Hotel Cestelli is one of the nicest hotels I have ever visited. It was right in the heart of Florence, close to Ponte Vecchio and all the sightseeing. The hotel provides with free wi-fi and good-sized rooms. All the rooms share a bathroom, but while I stayed there, you never had to wait long in line. My room was facing the street, but I rarely heard […] any noise. At most, it was a loud group of friends who were SO excited to go to dinner. Other than that, it is a very quiet and safe street. And just 5 minutes away you had everything - shopping, sightseeing, groceries store and the river Arno. And just around the corner you had Piazza Santa Trinita with more expensive stores and the Salvatore Ferragamo shoe museum. And if you walk across the bridge Ponte Santa Trinita you have the best gelateria in Florence! The staff - Alessio and Asumi was so sweet and nice. You could talk to them about anything. I used to live in Florence and we propably talked about that for a good 10 minutes! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
