We started the second leg of our trip in Florence and stayed at the Hotel Alessandra. The location was perfect, the staff very accommodating and helpful and the room was clean and roomy. We went with a room that had a bathroom ensuite. I would recommend this, but up to you. Loved that the room key needed to be left with the staff before we left to journey out for the day. This was one last thing we needed to remember if we still had at the end of the day! We did take a taxi from the train station to the hotel, but if your luggage isn't too bad, you could do the walk to the hotel. You will be walking most of the time your there anyway. We never got around to going to the stores that are directly on the street, but there were so many others that I didn't feel too bad. Words of wisdom - make sure you have good walking shoes, get out and experience the area, eat what you want and enjoy...your in Italy!
- 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
