We stayed in Florence for one night of our two week honeymoon and I'm so glad that we spent it at Hotel Alessandra! The location was incredible, super close to the river and the Ponte Vecchio, we were even upgraded at the last minute to a room with a river view, which was beautiful and the room itself was very comfortable. The front desk was very helpful, and they recommended an incredible restaurant for dinner. All in all, if we return to Florence we will definitely stay longer and we will make sure to stay at Hotel Alessandra.

Stayed: September 2012, traveled as a couple

My husband and I just returned from 4 nights at this hotel. In all honesty, I was a little skeptical upon wheeling down the tiny cobble stone street to the doors of Hotel Alessandra. We arrived late in the evening and the taxi dropped us at the end of the block due to cobblestone replacement. It can be a little difficult to find but I had looked at the entrance pictures on facebook so I knew basically what I was looking for. The magnificant doors are only the beginning of this midevil magnifigance. Yes, there are quite a few steps but as others have mentioned, they help to offset set the gellati intake. We mostly preferred the steps to the life (except when transporting our luggage to and from). When we arrived at the 3rd floor, the door we were greated by the most charming, helpful and loving concierge, Monti. As we would come to know over the next four days, this man is so special. Charismatic, charming and caring are just a few of the adjectives which would describe him He made our stay perfect.

The location is perfect. Around the corner from the "Park Ave" stores of Florence like Gucci and Tiffany. You can walk everywhere and anywhere. We were so nicely upgraded to a room with a view of the Arno which was beautiful. Breakfast was nice. Our room was large and our bathroom was beautiful. This was our first trip to Italy so we were rookies. We were visiting our daughter who is studying in Florence for this semester. I am so thankful to have selected this hotel. Our daughter also agreed that Hotel Alessandra was the perfect choice.

Please send our appreciation, love and kisses to Monti. "AMORE" He made our stay unforgettable. (Kathleen and Robert - blonde lady with blonde daughter...) Someday we will return...

Good job! Checking our facebook page for what our door looks like! How very organised. And understanding the calorie-reduction value of our stairs too! We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and indeed that your daughter confirmed your choice. Monti "amoreeeeee" sends his best, and the whole team looks forward to seeing you again one day.

Kind regards - Andrea Gennarini

This was a great spot in Venice, a bit tricky to find, but once there close to everything. Probably no more than 10 minutes to about anything you're interested in seeing in Florence, including just a block from the Ponte del Vecchio. A few steps leading to an elevator and another set in the hotel if you're upstairs, might be a challenge for some, but we were fine. The room was comfortable, very clean and looked out over the roofs of Florence. That cleanliness met us every day when we returned from hours of seeing the sights.

A substantial free breakfast buffet had freshly baked items, cereal, hard-boiled eggs, fresh fruit, juices, coffee, teas - and the service for espresso,cappuccinos if desired was friendly and attentive.

All of the staff at the front desk were helpful, professional and clearly focused on customer satisfaction. Monti, however, should really have a page of his own on Trip Advisor. Energetic, entertaining and dead on with recommendations, his friendly welcome at the start was echoed each time we returned. He genuinely seemed happy to see us! He was so helpful with recommendations (including the very important caveats), that we did not have a bad meal or experience in Florence.
Quite a character and one of those wonderful people that make travelling so rewarding.

Here's an additional kudo: a pair of glasses were left in the room and they were mailed to us in the US (of course, we paid) and arrived the same day we arrived home. Excellent and caring service. This is a definite stop on any of our future trips to Italy.

Wow - magnificient words. Thank you. You should know that Monti is a web 2.0 recluse!. We show him the wonderul things that people say about him on our hotel terminal. He loves it. We truly have an incredible team of whom we are extraordinarily proud. Thank you for noticing.

Very friendly, affordable place (I paid 55 €/night for single room, incl. reasonable brfast) right in the heart of Florence, around the corner from Ponte Vecchio.
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Room Tip: I had the cheapest option: single (# 25) shared bathroom (only basin in room), no view at all (wall of next building is 1 meter away). I guess there are no rooms w/ views as the whole bldg is pretty crammed in the alleys (as most in Florence are), and the hotel floors are 1st and 2nd only.

My wife and I spent several nights at the Allesandra in October. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and comfortable. Very nice breakfast buffet. Central location with lots of good informal places to eat nearby.
