Stayed here for three nights and was so glad I did. Location is excellent. Near most major attractions. Easy walking distance from the Santa Maria Novella Station. Streets are very narrow in Florence, so the smaller amount of luggage you can bring, the better. This is also helpful when you arrive at the hotel. You have to go up many... More

My wife and I spent five nights at Hotel Alessandra, and really, we can heartily recommend it further if you are planning a trip to Florence. The room was nice and clean, as well as a toilet and a separate shower room had just been renovated. The breakfast was delicious and the service as a whole commendable. If ever we... More

And thank you for staying with us! We’re so glad you appreciated our new renovations (you should have seen the dust!) and thought our service and breakfast were great as well! Hopefully you’ll come back and stay with us before we’re forced to renovate this old 500 year old building again! More

You understood the added value of our stairs! Basically it means you can eat as many icecreams as you want! Delighted that you all three had a good stay in Florence and that we could be part of that experience. More

From previous reviews, emails with the owners and the fact, my granddaughter's name is Alessandra, I had been looking forward to my stay here beginning March 19 for 8 nights. It is everything everyone says and more. Andrea arranged for my day tour to Siena, wine country and the highlight of my trip, cooking classes at "InTavola," a brief walk... More

And we can only say that your granddaughter has an absolutely perfect name! Nothing makes us feel so good as when single travellers say how safe and cosy they feel when staying with us - we really take that as a big compliment. The countdown is on for your return in two years - looking forward to it already! More

I wish I could give this hotel six stars. It was wonderful. The location is perfect, right in the old town a quick walk from most of Florence's amazing sights. The hotel is run with efficiency and care. The family running the hotel provides warm hospitality and a quality experience. Our room was freshly renovated, spotless, and comfortable. The delicious...

My husband and I stayed for 4 days at this hotel in March. We had a very large room overlooking the river Arno and the neighbouring bell tower.

Towel rails (and a couple of other left-over details) coming up as we speak! If you follow our facebook page, you will know we totally traumatised ourselves with FIVE new bathrooms this winter, plus some other major rennonvations, and there are always some details to finish off. But we are well and truly done now! Glad you loved it, and... More

Myself, my friend and her daughter spent 4 nights at Hotel Alessandra beginning on March 13. I really can't add much to past reviews because they are all true.

This hotel was fantastic from check in to check out. The front desk staff was very informative and gave great recommendations for food (Guastas pizza!) and dinner (Desco), where to go, what to see, etc. The room was huge and exceptionally clean. The location cannot be beat, especially for the price. Five minutes walking distance to virtually everything we wanted... More

If anyone ever were to ask us if we would like to relocate our hotel to a ground floor site we would of course say no. We have grown to love our stairs, and when guests love them too, that makes our day. When you love our city, that makes our week! When you love our food, that makes our... More

Excellent location close to Ponte Vecchio (sic?, ha), Duomo, an excellent hike to Piazza Michelangelo.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Our family run hotel is right in the heart of Florence old town - near to the Uffizi Gallery and Ponte Vecchio. Without doubt, Hotel Alessandra is one of the most centrally located hotels in Florence. In this privileged position, Hotel Alessandra offers a home away from home, with our friendly team and extensive knowledge of the local area. The hotel entrance is situated on the second floor of the building. You can reach the reception floor using the lift, small but working fine (in the 1400s buildings hadn't been designed with this in mind!) but please note that there are around 30 steps from the entrance on the street level to the departure of the lift. We very much look forward to seeing you! Andrea and Anna ... more   less
