Hotel Scoti is a small, family-run 'pensione' opened at the end of the 1800s on the second floor of 'Palazzo Corsi', an elegant 16th century building in the heart of the historical centre of Florence. The 18th century floor-to-ceiling frescoes in the spacious living room create a very special atmosphere. The eleven recently-refurbished rooms with private en suite bathrooms offer well-priced comfort. Its location on Via Tornabuoni, the smartest shopping street in town, make it a very desirable choice. Just a few minutes on foot from the Ponte Vecchio, the Uffizi Gallery and the Duomo. Directions to walk to our hotel from the Santa Maria Novella railway station in about ten minutes are as follows: take Via Panzani and turn right into Via Rondinelli, which then becomes Via Tornabuoni. Number 7 (blue) is on the right after the traffic lights and just after the second Prada boutique. Directions to drive here from the motorway: take the 'Firenze Certosa' exit and follow directions for 'Centro' and 'Lungarni' (riverside roads); from Porta Romana take Via Romana and then Via Maggio; turn left at the river, turn right onto the bridge Ponte alla Carraia, turn right onto Lungarno Corsini and then turn left onto Via Tornabuoni. Number 7 (blue) on Via Tornabuoni is on the west side of the street between Via del Parione and Via della Vigna Nuova and it is next to Prada. 72 hrs cancellation policy, check in 2pm, check out 10.30am, breakfast 5eu daily, on request.
