This hotel was perfectly situated just down and one street across from the Ponte Vecchio. Value for money in the heart of Florence.
The staff were great. Every single suggestion was a wonderful experience and they helped us out a lot.
Monti - you are a special character and made us laugh
Breakfast is ok for being included and the room we had, number 26 was more than we required for the 2 of us.
Tip: take bug repellent as the Mosquitos can be trouble. But this is the same for all hotels in Italy!
Thousands of years of civilization and they don't know what a fly screen is for a window!
But no big issue really. Our room hd a reasonable view of the river as well.
As mentioned, check in guy was great, other staff friendly, have free WIFI in room or the TV room has a PC.
Would be happy to go back.
Be warned though, some stairs as the reception is on the 4th floor, the the 1 meter by half a meter lift starts at the 2nd floor. There are stairs all the way up if the lift is too claustrophobic for you.
- 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
