We stayed here for Thanksgiving weekend based on past reviews here. Everything was spot on! Nice quiet street and excellent location. The rooms were nice and clean. We had two bedrooms, one for my son and daughter and one for my wife and I. Good value as we went "European" and shared a bathroom down the hall. The rooms were clean and comfortable; my wife said the children had a better room! :-) Anyway our host, Andrea was great! He arranged a full day in Tuscany, with a tour group, for us, which I highly recommend. And then there was Monti! What a delight...he had a great recs for "local" dinner places and advice on the leather market and such. Good resource to help with your Florence stay. The breakfasts too were very good. Would stay here again! Also as mentioned earlier...some steps to climb to get to the level of the hotel...but it kept you in shape. The building I believe was built in the 1500's...so plenty of history too. We took a taxi to the hotel when we arrived...but after we got our bearings in Florence we walked to the train station with our bags. No big deal and it only took us 15 minutes. I would stay here again!!
- 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
