I am a single mom who traveled with her child (8 at the time). The hotel was very clean, the staff were welcoming, helpful with finding restaurant suggestions (particularly Monti) as well as organizing tours. We opted for one of the cooking classes offered through the hotel and it was a great experience. Much of the city center is walkable and Hotel Alessandra was convenient to all of it. The staff was very accomodating with personal requests. SOme of the reviews mention walking up a flight of stairs to get to the elevator to take you to the lobby - this is accurate. The hotel staff will help you with your bags if you need it though.
- 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
