From helping to locate my lost luggage and arrange to have it delivered, patient instruction on Internet usage, an excellent recommendation for day trips as well as long sight-seeing walks, reliable information about the best times to enter popular tourist attractions and to view the Easter pageant, all assistance was rendered cheerfully and provided in important detail.
Rooms are charming and functional. The clip clop of passing carriage horses below was a lovely sound and the view across adjoining rooftops gave an ever-changing view of the city.
The hotel is easily accessible from the bus station and is less than a block from the Ponte Vecchio. The breakfast each morning in the hotel dining room was varied and delicious, with cups of cappuccino readily prepared to order as well as hard boiled eggs, cereal, delicious croissants, milk, juice, assorted fruit and many other choices. Visitors mingled freely in the dining area and enjoyed the company of other travelers sharing a good experience.
The hotel owner and staff members created a very welcoming environment for our group. The serendipitous choice of the Hotel Alessandra for our two week stay in Florence set the tone for a truly memorable trip!
- 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
