We stayed 2 nights...
Pros: The hotel is in a great location in a safe neighborhood near the Ponte Vecchio. The staff is friendly and the check in/check out process easy. The breakfast area is delightful and they have boiled eggs available. Lighting in the room and shower water pressure both excellent. Nice amenities; hair dryer, flat screen tv and a big safe. Spacious room.
Cons: The rooms feel out dated. Drab duvet cover, curtains and rugs. Two single beds pushed together. Thin walls. Tiny bathroom with florescent lighting and noisy fan.
I think if you enjoy antique furnishings you would like this hotel. We prefer renovated rooms in historical hotels. Some friends stayed here after a week in Rome...they said they loved the spacious room at Hotel Alessandra. Just depends on what you are looking for.
We did appreciate the room rate and the efficient/friendly staff!
- 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
