We booked a double room, but on the night before our arrival at 23:35, I received a message from the owner that they had to cancel our booking due to a credit card issue. Interestingly, 5min before I had received the payment confirmation from my card company. I immediately called the owner, but she was not helpful at all. I... More

Dear Jan Drewes I do not speak English well, but you did not understand the things I said on the phone. I have not been able to call, because that's when the offices were closed. I have to ask permission to call a number that makes me talk to a recorded voice asking me to enter the details C /... More

Soggiorno Alessandra is in an excellent location. A six minute bus ride on the #6 bus from Firenze Santa Maria Novella station and within easy walking distance of just about everything we wanted to see in Florence. Alessandra treated us very well and we were quite happy with our stay here. Do not be put off by the entry, which... More

My wife and I stayed for 5 nights at Soggiorno Alessandra in September 2014. I chose this B&B because of its location and I was not disappointed. It really is within easy walking distance of all the tourist attractions of Florence. It was also a blessing to have a self-service Laundromat close by. The gelateria "La Carraia" around the corner... More

Alessandra is a wonderful host - the B&B is simple but perfectly adequate and in a great Area of town. We ate at several good Tratorrias in the area, a grocery is close by, as well as a laundry facility, etc. A bit hard to find, and of course the entrance isn't marble-lined, but we loved it. Alessandra took care... More

Pros:very close to train station, awesome price, easy walking distance to EVERYTHING. the place was very big, including a kitchen with refrigerator. Alessandra was an excellent host and helped me with the mail when I had my credit card stolen. Breakfast stuff (toast and coffee and croissants) were placed in our kitchen everyday. Cons or FYIs: bathroom was very narrow/small... More

As many of the other reviews note, this place is no frills. We stayed in a little room with a shared bathroom, but it was by far the cheapest place we found in the city. There was a little hot pot in the room with tea and instant coffee and cappuccino, which was close to perfection after getting soaked by... More

My wife and I paid 65 Euros/night for two nights in September 2013 for this clean, safe but no-frills double room one block south of the Arno River. The place can difficult to find, as it is not well-marked and is tucked into an apartment building; so it is smart follow directions that are emailed in advance. Alessandra, the owner... More

The building is creepy and not so easy to find. Our room was fine. The shower is the kind that is a space right beside the toilet. Florescent lights. Bring your own shampoo, etc. But location is what we were looking for (Oltrano near the Arno) and for the price it can't be beat. You have to ask for the... More

We stayed in Florence and used it as a base to go to Lucca and to Sienna also. We stayed for 5 nights and very glad we stayed on that side of town, that side of river because of all the great restaurants hidden in the narrow streets there away from the big plazas. The room was clean but basic... More
