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.
- 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
