We stayed for two nights at the Hotel Alessandra in September 2014 to kick-off a 16 day tour of Italy. The Hotel Alessandra is a family operated, centrally located (very near the Ponte Vecchio and Uffizi), hotel featuring pleasant rooms and excellent service. We have been travelling to Europe for 50 years, and the Hotel Alessandra is a modern example... More

Wow. What an amazingly detailed review. Thank you so much. We are sure that future travellers to Florence will much appreciate it. Your excellent info about driving a car to Florence are spot on. Although we would still advise everyone NOT to bring a car to Florence (it worked for you, but we have seen several guests close to mental... More

We stayed at the hotel Alessandra from 1st to 5th September 2014. The location is fantastic - minutes from the centre of Florence with everything within easy walking distance. The service was outstanding and we felt immediately relaxed and very well looked after. Andrea gave us some great tips for the better trips and excursions which we really enjoyed. Breakfast... More

We arrived in Florence with high expectations and they were met beautifully during our stay at the Hotel Alessandra; Andrea, his mother and Monte did everything possible to make it so. The location is superb - within minutes of the Ponte Vecchio and the Uffizi with no shortage of wonderful restaurants within walking distance. Andrea and Monte went out of... More

This is a warm and wonderful place to stay in Florence. The family is kind and generous with their knowledge, and if you have the pleasure of meeting Monte (truly one of a kind!) you won't want to stay anywhere else. Be sure to ask him how to get to Zio Gigi to experience a true Firenze neighborhood restaurant. Great... More

We spent one night in Florence at Hotel Alessandra and were very happy with the location and especially the service provided by Andrea, his mother and the night manager. We had an early morning flight and missed the regular breakfast; each of us received a bag with yogurt, juice, rolls when we checked out in the morning. Our room was... More

Situated in a quiet, narrow street within a stone's throw of the River Arno and about 100 yards from the Ponte Vecchio, the hotel is superbly positioned within easy walking distance of all of the major tourist sites. Family run with friendly, helpful staff throughout, the hotel rooms are on the third and fourth floors of an old building; there... More

Great location, great hosts..what more could you want? Breakfasts are superb.., the view is terrific, and within few minutes walk for all the sights and all the restaurants. Finding the hotel is simple, the inner lift is quaint.

We loved this hotel! The location was great near the Ponte Vecchio and within walking distance of all major attractions. Lots of cafes in the area also. The service was exceptional. Even before our trip, Andrea was emailing about tours and reservations. They went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. And they were friendly... More

This hotel is terrific. It is located within walking distance to most of the major attractions with plenty of restaurants and cafes close by. We stayed in one of the rooms with a view of the Arno River which was lovely with a big modern bathroom. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Highly recommend this hotel.
