“I look forward to returning to Hotel Alessandra to once again enjoy its charm and impeccable service!”
Reviewed 6 May 2009

A fantastic location just a short walk to Ponte Vecchi and the Arno River, the Uffizi, and the Piazza della Signoria. Andrea was the most accomodating and gracious host imaginable. A problem with our in room safe resulted with a new safe being installed while we were out touring one day. Reservations for tickets and tours were ready upon our arrival. We highly recommend the cooking classes at La Tavola. We also were able to make last minite reservations at a local production of The Marriage of Figaro during the off season for all the major opera houses in Italy. Hotel Alessandra was a restful ending to each of our glorious days in Florence.

This was my second and my wife's third time to stay at Alessandra. Andrea welcomes us like old friends and all the staff are courteous and attentive. The hotel is a quiet, comfortable retreat within easy walking distance of everything that matters (important in Firenze!) on a quiet, charming side street. We would definitely stay there again.

We visited the Hotel Alessandra during a trip to Florence. We loved it. The hotel was charming. The location was excellent. A short walk from the train station if you are traveling by train and close to many of the major attractions in Florence . Many nice shops and restaurants in close proximity. We booked two rooms, both with private baths. The rooms were very comfortable and very clean. There was always plenty of hot water. The hotel served a nice breakfast. We always found plenty to eat.

The staff was very friendly and helpful both during our stay and when I was booking the rooms prior to our trip. We would definitely stay at the Hotel Alessandra again if we are ever lucky enough to return to Florence.

You will have to look hard to find this hotel, but it's well worth the effort! The lobby and rooms are beautiful and the staff is very helpful. The location is very convenient for walking to everything you will want to see in Florence - from the museums to shopping to wonderful restaurants. Would definitely stay again.

Perfect location, close to all of the main museums and sites. Andrea puts a lot of time and energy into getting things just right. One of the few hotels to offer quad rooms. My wife and I and our two daughters stayed here for eight nights and it worked out perfectly. Excellent staff, especially Monti. We look forward to returning some day.

I traveled by myself through Europe for 2.5 weeks, visiting Paris, Venice, Florence and Rome. I tried to pick hotels based on safe locations. I picked this hotel based on reading Trip Advisor reviews. I was not disappointed. The staff/ owner of Hotel Alessandra were fantastic! Upon arriving at the hotel they helped me book tours of the Uffizi and Academia so I did not have to wait in the lines. They also made great reccomendations for nice restaurants in the area that were not outrageously priced. The location was perfect for visiting all of the sites in Florence. The city of Florence is magnificent. I only wish I could have stayed longer.

Rick Steve recommended this hotel. Once we found it, it was perfect. It is extremely centrally located, has a larger than normal collazione and was a good value. The owner/staff was very helpful and made excellent recommendations for meals. It was so perfectly located, that once we parked our car, we were able to walk where ever we went. This included the Uffice and the Central Market where we shopped on more than one occasion.
Should we return to Florence we will definitely stay there again and would recommend it to anyone.

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
