Best value for the location in my mind!
We were greeted by the effervescent Monti - what a wonderful person! He made me smile or laugh every time I saw him. Friendly cannot accurately describe Monti - and the rest of the staff are almost as equally friendly :)
We stayed here for 4 nights and absolutely loved this quirky little place with all its little nooks and crannies. Keep in mind it is a budget hotel, with simple furnishings and decor, but it is very clean which is very important to me.
We were pleasantly surprised how large our room was (room 16B). The room was adjacent to a shared bath and unfortunately, we could hear the door closing quite loudly every time someone used the washroom. Maybe a sign on the door requesting people to "close the door softly for the comfort of other guests" might help.
Loved the cheerful breakfast room (I wished these colors were in the rest of the hotel). Breakfast was sufficient and coffee was served very efficiently and to your liking.
As mentioned in previous posts, there are plenty of stairs and this did not bother us - but it may some.
We were considering a wine tour and Andrea recommended a company called "MyTours" and booked the reservation for us. We were very impressed with the tour company!
I would definitely stay here 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
