We stayed at Hotel Alessandra for four nights, and we had a blast. Great breakfast, to be italian, and a fantastic receptionist. I did´nt get his name, but he was fantastic. Helped us with reservations and pointed us towards great places to eat.
This was our fourth time in Firenze, so we had a pretty good overview of things, but this guy was a great help in discovering new ones.
Room was not big, but a good AC, clean and comfortable, and with a great bathroom with actual pressure in the shower. Which is rare to come by in Italy.
The location is fantastic, but the only drawback, and if you are considering this hotel, you have to be aware of this: You have to walk up two flights of stairs before you reach the elevator. If you have trouble walking up stairs and have a lot of heavy luggage, you might want to reconsider.
- 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
