Ciao! My girlfriend and I stayed at Hotel Alessandra in October of 2008 for three nights. We could not have been more pleased. The hotel is located about five minutes by cab from the train station. It was bustling in the hotel office when we arrived in the early morning. Andrea and his mother have been running this hotel for... More

Great location ... room was big - very high ceiling and a great view of the Arno River; however, the traffic was noisy .... take earplugs for a good night's sleep!

We were totally delighted with this beautifully furnished and extremely clean hotel, with its attention to its long history as well as to the comfort of its guests. Andrea provided us with genuinely welcoming, personal and friendly service during our entire four-day stay (marking locations on maps, recommending restaurants, etc.), and really made it one of our most memorable stays...

Thank you for your review, I'm happy to hear that you had an enjoyable stay. Nowadays people not easily enjoy the clip-clop sound of the horses on the cobblestone street, people may find these sounds to be just noise I look forward to welcome you back to the hotel in the future.

Wonderful find in Florence. Quiet hotel on pleasant street within easy walking distance of all the sights. Especially loved the room with the view of the Arno. Rooms are large, pleasantly decorated and beds were wonderful. Sitting area with online access was a pleasant surprise. I will stay here again!

Our room was spacious and elegant, with a small balcony overlooking the street below. Breakfasts were good; service was excellent, and the location couldn't be more central (between Duomo and Ponte Vecchio)! We asked them to get us tickets to the Accademia prior to our arrival, and they were more than happy to do so. The only drawback was that... More

This small hotel has a great location, right near the Uffizi and the Ponte Vechio. Rooms are spacious and comfortable, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Hotel is on the second floor, and there are stairs to walk up to a very small elevator, but that's the only drawback.

My wife and I have just returned from a 4-night break in Florence and were extremely pleased with the Hotel Alessandra.

I would definetly recommend Hotel Alessandra. The staff is most helpful, and so, so friendly. They set up our reservations for museums, recommended restaurants, and arranged an amazing day tour of Pisa, Lucca, and (the best) winery tour. The rooms are clean and bright. The location is excellent, near the Uffizi and other attractions, yet off the beaten path away... More

This is an excellent hotel, with wonderful staff, in a very good location. had a good sized room with a view of the Duomo. Most of the attractions in Florence are a short walk from the hotel. A small elevator services the second floor hotel, but access is also available by stairs. The breakfast is fairly basic - coffee, toast,... More
