“Great Location--Terrific Staff--A Complete Delight”
Reviewed 21 June 2011

I spent 4 days at the Alessandra and was completely satisfied. The staff was outstanding and did everything they could to make me comfortable--great directions, a cab at 5 a.m--free internet with a printer, and a recommendation to the best local restaurant I ate at in Florence. Very nice clean quiet rooms--a good breakfast- complimentary expresso or cappiciano. I will be staying there again when I return to Florence--they made it feel like home

We loved the location and staff at this hotel. We were blocks from all the action while on a quiet street. The staff provided us lots of tips on great Trattoria's for dinner and lunch. Plus hotel had free internet. Monty made sure our trip was memorable.

Due to a self inflicted admin mess up on our multi location holiday we arrived at this fully booked hotel 3 days early! The staff couldn't have been more positve and helpful. They somehow managed to find us a room (albeit a different room for each night! ) and even moved our cases for us while we were out enjoying Florence. For two of the nights we were in upgraded rooms but were only charged the original quoted price. Wonderful service, happy staff, good rooms, quiet location in the heart of the action. What more could you ask for?

Room Tip: Rooms 7,15 and 20 all overlook the quiet road.

Hotel Alessandra is perfectly located for exploring Florence on foot. I have two young children traveling with me and wanted to avoid excessive walking to destinations. One can reach the both the Dumo, Ponte Vecchio and the Uffizi in five minutes of walking at most.

The desk staff is very friendly at all times and the rooms are spotless. There is an aged charm about the rooms that my children and I enjoyed very much. Wi-fi is free, a huge bonus for keeping in touch with family or looking up restaurants/shops nearby.

Breakast is included, with a little something for everyone. We enjoyed the brioches with various fillings but also appreciated the hard-boiled eggs after a week of carbo-loading! The cappuccino is fantastic, and arrives with a smiley face of cocoa on the foam. The kids were offered hot chocolate each morning as well. I was very pleasantly surprised at what a lovely experience we had in a two-star hotel!

We were very pleased with our holiday at the Hotel Alessandra in Florence. The friendliness & helpfulness of all the staff were beyond words. Location was fabulous: on a quiet street near the Ponte Vecchio, the rooms were very clean, light and well-appointed and the breakfast- with smiling cappuccinos- was delicious and more than adequate. Our stay with Hotel Alessandra made the trip so much more wonderful. We would highly recommend it to other visitors who are looking for a reasonably price hotel with a convenient location, helpful staff and lovely rooms.

My husband and I looooooved this hotel. I don't think we could have found a better priced hotel for this location. It's a five minute walk to the Ponte Vecchio and a short distance beyond that to the Uffizi and Duomo.
The staff is AMAZING! They are so friendly and cheerful. And the our room was HUGE! We chose the shared bath option and were a little nervous, but never once in our entire 3 night stay did we encounter another person using the bathroom. And there were two to choose from.
Breakfast was great too. They had everything including eggs, cereal, yogurt, and pastries/breads. And free Wi-Fi. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Florence. You will not regret it!
