Spent three nights at Hotel Alessandra in April. The hotel is centrally located and just off the river Arno about 15-20 minutes by foot from the main train station. The familiy-run pensione is clean and the desk staff were friendly and accommodating. I arrived early and had a late departure and in both cases they were happy to store my luggage.
My room was up a flight of stairs from the reception (no elevator) and was perfect for my needs. In addition to the single bed the room was furnished with a closet and writing table and didn't feel cramped and crowded. The window overlooked the quiet street (I slept with the window open but wasn't disturbed by noise) and had a view of neighboring rooftops and a corner of the Duomo dome. The room had a sink but no bathroom -- I chose the single room whose private bathroom is across the hall. The bathroom was solely for my use and since I only had to pad across for my morning shower it wasn't a big deal, especially since my room rate averaged € 43/night. WiFi was included and reliable. The buffet-style morning breakfast was included in the price and more than enough to get the day started. I had an excellent experience at Hotel Alessandra and wouldn't hesitate to return or to recommend.More
