High marks for this hotel. Great value. We had a mini-suite and it was spacious with high ceilings, complete bath, and large window. The staff was exceptional; pleasant, friendly, and quite accommodating. The breakfast area was comfortable and the food good. The location is awesome for walking around and being close to the sites.
One caveat for this hotel; you have to walk up to the third floor to get to it. For those who are older, out-of-shape, or have big bags - beware. PS: there is an elevator from the 2nd floor to the 3rd and beyond. We would definitely return as long as we were in good shape. PS2: I got attacked by mosquitoes at night. Check with the desk, they have plug-in repellents that you can use that will quell them.
- 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
