Our room had the best location. We were close to our scheduled tour meeting points/ending points, near the river, walking distance to any area in Florence. Alessandra and Daniela were very helpful in giving directions on the map they provided, and Daniela called a taxi on our behalf (to take us to the airport) which arrived within the promised five...

Hotel was nice as was the staff. The room was a bit rundown but was very spacious. The breakfast wasn't very good but there was the kettle in the room which was handy. Location was useful for what we wanted.

Great location in Florence - close to restaurants, shopping and local attractions. Almost everything is in walking distance. The room I booked was ok. Bed was comfortable. I did not like that the bathroom was out in the hallway. The other rooms had bathrooms located inside of their rooms which I would have preferred. Also felt a little claustrophobic since... More

We stayed in early March 2015. Located two blocks from Ponte Veccio, Pitti Palace, close to museums. Lots of restaurants nearby. Americans would call it "second floor". (Europeans don't count the ground floor as the first floor) Alessandra was a great help. Our room had a typical European bathroom en suite. Price was right on target for us. Would certainly... More

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

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.

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

Staying in Santo Spirito / San Frediano

Neighborhood Profile
Santo Spirito / San Frediano
A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour. Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and they cannot help but stare at the architectural masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria delle Carmine churches. Tourists and Florentines alike join up in the area between Santo Spirito and San Frediano, connecting the Tuscan soul to the international spirit permeating the city.
