My spouse and adult children spent four nights at the Alessandra. In our opinion it is in the perfect location! Around the corner from the Arno and the Ponte Vecchio, a dozen blocks to the Duomo and with multiple restaurants in the area, we tried all of them, can't go wrong, pick on and eat! The Hotel did have multiple layers of stairs to climb. I had both of my knees replaced one year ago and had no problem managing the stairs and those times I felt I didn't want to climb, I used the lift. Ask for a room with a view of the Arno, they were large with excellent bathroom facilities the view was to die for, our room was HUGE! Our kids had the same reaction to their rooms, very large, beautiful rooms. Exceptionally clean. Breakfast was wonderful, their dining room attendants were spot on providing cappuccino/espresso, etc. Our only complaint, the mattresses were as hard as bricks. If they could replace the mattresses in the rooms they'd be 5 stars without question. My first foray to Florence, my husbands been their multiple times, as a pilot, he'll be returning to Florence. I'm very happy I chose the Alessandra for our visit as a 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
