I stayed at Hotel Alessandra with my wife for 2 nights. We felt right at home in a friendly environment. Anna and Andrea were wonderful hosts and were very helpful in making reservations for us at both the Uffizi and the Accademia. Now that Florence has taken cars out of the historic center the street was very quiet with just the occasional cab. There were a fine choice of places to eat without having to go very far. The quiet street and the hotel were a peaceful and safe refuge from the more active parts of town. The bathroom was shared but privacy was not a problem and the rooms were always kept very clean. The breakfast was excellent with a wide variety of choices and a good way to start the day. Its hard to beat the location- one block back from the Arno near the Ponte Vecchio and just a short walk to the Uffizi. There is a one flight walk up to get to a small elevator but this was no problem. I hope I have the good fortune to stay here again. I wish them the very best.
- 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
