We felt so at home at the Hotel Alessandra in Firenze. It was the first stop on our 10 day visit to Italy. Our room was comfortable and the location of the hotel was so convenient to all that we wanted to do and see. When we opened the shutters we were immersed in the sights and the sounds and the aromas of Firenze! The hotel manager, Andrea, had booked a dinner reservation for our first evening there and also had reserved tickets in advance at the Uffizi and the Accademia saving us from standing in very long lines! Andrea's wife Anna and any other front desk staff were always helpful with directions and calling us a cab when we were checking out. We were surprised by breakfast being included and it was always delicious and sustained us for our sightseeing. We also ordered wine several times in our room which was very good quality and inexpensive. The only drawback was the stairs to the elevator which we hadn't expected, but we probably packed too much anyway, and that was only an issue on checking in and checking out. We would love to go back and have a room with a view of the Arno.
- 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
