We stayed here for 3N in August in a room with a shared bathroom arrangement. This was the first time we were experimenting with this sort of an arrangement and I must say that there was no cause for any complains.
The Hotel is a short taxi ride away from the Train station. It is actually a 101-2 minute walk away, but it is better to take a taxi if you are with bags. The cobble stoned streets of Florence are not too kind on the bag wheels. There is a small elevator to take you to the hotel lobby level (2nd floor), but you will have to climb one floor on your own, without the elevator. Not such a big deal actually, and looks like the norm across smaller hotels in Europe.
We were met by Monti at the front desk and he was an absolute delight. He explained the town's layout to us and also suggested some good eating places.
The room was really big with nice large windows and a comfortable bed. The Breakfast was arranged in the mornings in a room and the spread was not too large, but delicious. The hotel is in a narrow lane and around 5 minutes walking distance from the Duomo and around 2 minutes from the Uffizzi gallery. Would definitely love to stay here again if we visit the lovely city of Florence again
- 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
