... drink cocktails and eat apperitivo snacks for next to nothing. The next day we had a late one, wandered down to the huge buffet the hotel put on for us and gorged. After that we went out walking around the city, went and got a closer look at the spectacular duomo in the middle of city, had some lunch time drinks and chilled out, which was nice because up until then it had been hectic! We returned back to the market for lunch where we chose pizzas. Again I think it was ...

... version of him. I think I spent forty five minutes circling at every angle possible and making visual stills in my head of what he looked like to me in that moment. And during that period I hummed Morgan's song "This I Give To You." Doing this completely silenced all of my technical thinking, all of the people around me and it materialized what I was feeling.
On this day something important was resolved within me but I can't define ...

So guess what he left on the Vespa tour!!! His glasses. Fortunately, Keith found them and said he'd leave them at our hotel in Florence.

So here we are in Florence, we walked to the hotel, no glasses. We finally reached Keith, he's on a tour and won't be back until 5. So, we're leaving Florence without the glasses. He's going to mail them home. Jim did learn a lesson ...

... a balcony and full wall sized glass windows overlooking the vineyard at the bottom of the hill. We were served a series of a 4 course meal each with a wine pairing made there at the vineyard. We had grilled bread for an appetizer with a white wine, then beef ragout pasta with a red Chianti wine, boar salami with bruschetta and salad paired with another red wine, and finally a desert wine with almond biscotti cookies for dessert. It was pretty awesome. We had ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Cellai Florence

    'perfectly acceptable'

    from

    We have just returned from a week in the Cellai, have found it comfortable, clean, no unwelcome insects. The staff were polite freindly and helpful, all you could want from a 3 star hotel in a busy city. Can't understand all the bad reviews, but note where they came from!!!

    We would stay again

    from

    We liked this hotel and thought it accurately priced for a fairly simple experience. It was refurbished and classy, although the room was a bit small and we did not realise it was air conditioned at first - probably why we left the window open and got bitten by the plentiful mosquitoes. The staff were perfectly courteous and helpful. The hotel is extremely well positioned halfway between the main rail station and the major sights of Florence - it's about half a mile from the Duomo, for example. The worst of the building work seems to be over (May 03) and it was quiet and easily accessible. Downsides minor - There was no chest of drawers in the room. The breakfast room filled up quickly and they ran out of food at one stage. Coffee is too watered down for our tastes. Entrance area always smoky as reception staff appeared to chain smoke.

    Fine for a short city break

    from

    We spent two nights at the Cellai and found it perfectly acceptable for the price. It was nicely decorated and clean, with good pictures on the walls. The roof terrace was pretty. Breakfast was OK but the staff were rather surly. Although our bedroom overlooked the street, the double glazing kept the noise out.

    Reason why this hotel is cheap...

    from

    Small rooms, Noisy. Not sure whether they were fleas or mosquitos, but something was biting us. There are much better hotels for the money.

    Clean comfy and quiet

    from

    We stayed in the Cellai for two nights earlier this week (Jan 2003). I read the reviews on this site after we booked so was a bit apprehensive but was pleasantly surprised by the hotel. Our room was quite small but was clean and quiet and the bed was comfy. There wasn't much space to sit in the room but as we were there to see Florence, not sit in a hotel, this wasn't a problem. There are several communal areas in the hotel where you can lounge if required. The bathroom was spotless and breakfast was great in a pleasant dining room. The roof terrace is nice though the view of the Duomo isn't immediately apparent! Out of season the hotel was excellent value, no mosquitoes either, and the location is good. I'd go back.

    Great inexpensive hotel

    from

    My mom and her friends stayed at this hotel when they came for my wedding. They got it as part of a package and so weren't sure what to expect. No mosquitos for them -- and friends who stayed at the most expensive hotel did have the mosquitos so I think that is just part of the Florence experience and bug spray is required! It is a wonderful inexpensive hotel with great art and different nooks and crannies throughout. There is a rooft terrace with roomy chairs and bar where you can see the cathedral. The rooms are not huge but very practical. The bathrooms were spotless. And, while I didn't sleep on the beds we did sit on them and they felt quite firm. My mom really enjoyed it. And it is only a few blocks to all the sites. Trattoria Guelfa one block away is great.

    Hotel Cellai

    from

    This hotel was disappointing. There was very major construction going on on the entire street/block in front of the hotel (we were there in Oct 2002 - but this construction looks like it will be going on awhile). The taxi had to drop us over one block away. The rooms are tiny, old, dark, not particularly clean. Honestly - kind of depressing. The bathrooms are tiny yet well maintained. The hotel was inexpensive though. And the location is relatively good.

    Ditto

    from

    We stayed there a in August and I agree with the first review. They weren't fleas however, they were mosquitoes. The staff was very rude.

    Not Bad At All!

    from

    Quite contrary to the other review - I found the Cellai perfectly acceptable. We stayed there one night and the hotel staff was very helpful in guiding us to restaurants, details around procedures in the hotel and so forth. While the hotel is not a five star property, the price was compatible with the look, features and quality of the rooms.

    The other very good thing about the Cellai is that it is perfectly located to see the sights in Florence. Blocks away from the major museums, good restaurants and the main cathedral in town.

    Donīt miss the Trattoria Theatro just down the street. By the way - no fleas or anything such as this!

    Stay away

    from

    Don't bother staying here. Rude hotel staff. Tiny flea infested rooms. Pictures look nice but deceiving. Very noisy.
