Hotel Scoti is in the very stylish Via De’ Tornabuone, one of the best shopping streets in Florence. Gucci, Pucci, Armani, Prada and many more iconic fashion houses will be your neighbours if you stay there.
The entrance is directly opposite Fendi.
A lift will take you up from the foyer.
The hotel is in a 16th century palazzo. The 17th century floor to ceiling frescoes have been retained in the living room.
All the rooms have been lovingly restored and the common rooms will make you want to stay for ever. There are single and double rooms, each with ensuites. Breakfast is available.
It is just around the corner from my favourite cafe in Florence, Giacosa, making it the perfect place for me to stay in the city. The charming owner speaks English and Italian and has an extensive knowledge of Florence which she is delighted to share.
Our stay at the Scoti was too short, but I know we will be back.
