My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Alessandra in Florence for three days in October. We were a bit worried when we first arrived as we had three suitcases and thought maybe there wasn't an elevator.... but we made it around the first corner, up a few stairs, and found that there was indeed. Once we got up to the second floor and into reception we were no longer worried. The staff were amazingly helpful, the hotel clean and comfortable, and the location superb!
Monty, the staff member that we spent the most time talking to, was truly wonderful. He was knowledgeable, helpful and made us laugh every time we saw him. He made great restaurant and tour recommendations and made sure we were happy and comfortable.
Breakfast included a wide assortment of foods to keep everybody from little kids to jet-lagged travelers happy.
Our room looked out over the river and a lovely church. Don't let the bells worry you, they don't ring all day and night.
I would highly recommend Hotel Alessandra to anyone visiting Florence. It's hard to find such a gem in such a central location for such a great price.
- 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
