My husband and I staying at the Hotel Alessandra this past October after traveling from the Amalfi Coast. Andreas and his mother couldn't have been more welcoming. We were met outside the city parking restriction area (to avoid a ticket) and were were promptly whisked to the hotel door. Fortunately, we pack light; while there is a lift, it starts at the first floor. The location cannot be beat - we had a view of the River Arno and were within walking distance of all that you want to see in Florence - the Pontevecchio, the Academia, the Duomo and some fabulous restaurants. The room was the best in all of Italy. This family run hotel is a gem and I would recommend this hotel without reservation. The hospitality and morning breakfast were superb. We look forward to returning!
- 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
