Our family of four (including 2 teenage boys) stayed here for 3 nights. We chose this hotel based on tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. The hotel was in a great location and was an easy walk from the train station (print directions from website). Upon our arrival, we received a warm welcome from Monti, who was delightful. He had thoughtfully turned on the air conditioner in our room for our arrival (it was an extremely hot day). We booked the room with the private balcony (#27, I think) and it was perfect for our family. It was 2 large rooms, both with a view of an old bell tower and the Arno River. There was also a private balcony with a table and chairs where we could sip wine in the evening (the hotel has excellent wine available to purchase at a very reasonable price). We later met Anna and Andrea, who were so helpful and friendly - they even made advance reservations for us at Uffuzi and the Accademia Galleries.
Both rooms were quite spacious and spotless, as was the private bathroom. Comfortable beds, quiet and the air con was excellent. Breakfast was filling and varied and we enjoyed our morning cappuccino with a smiley face. The only possible negative would be the steps if a person had mobility issues. There is a small lift, which we never used. We viewed the steps as the perfect excuse to eat more gelato!
We're already looking forward to another visit and will definitely request this room for our family.
- 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
