This hotel is perfect. The room is fairly large for European standards. The ceilings were at least 12' tall, which made the room look huge. We had a river view which was nice. The room was very clean, no funky smell sometimes associated with older hotels.

The real gem was the staff. They were all very friendly, especially Andrea. If you need to know anything, ask him. He was very helpful in recommending a good pizza joint, and it didn't disappoint. I will definitely stay here next time i'm in Florence.

This lovely hotel is simple and perfect, in 15th century building with good modern updates (windows, bathrooms, etc). It was exactly what we hoped to find: so close to many locations but on a quiet sidestreet that took you away from the crowds. Friendly owners and staff, very accommodating and a solid breakfast with as much espresso or cappuccino as you like.
There is a flight of stairs to climb to get to the elevator and some internal stairs which is important if mobility is restricted. I wish the toiletries were a bit nicer (but that is a minor point).

Room Tip: The "junior suite" category is a larger room which we found to be perfect, suggested rooms: 21, 15, 16 for example. You can view the river or the duomo in the distance.

Hotel Alessandra could not have been in a more ideal location for exploring the center of Florence. It was a very comfortable and clean and the man at the front desk could not have been any more helpful. He was extremely welcoming and gave us lots of great advice and booked us on a wine tour of Tuscany which was a blast. The breakfast was great and did I mention the location? It was truly ideal. It was right by Ponte Vecchio, but tucked away on a side street so it was super quiet which is always critical when you are running yourself around like crazy during the day. And you can easily walk to the hotel from the train station, so you save yourself some extra money.

There are a few different tours that are offered through the hotel's webpage and I would recommend the half day afternoon tour of Tuscany. It was a lot of fun and the winery we visited was beautiful.

All in all, we had a wonderful stay thanks to Hotel Alessandra and their wonderful staff. I would recommend this hotel without question to anyone visiting Florence.

Monti greeted us at check in and we loved him from the start. He always had a smile on his face and had great reccomendations for meals. Also it was within walking distance from SMN train station. We stayed in the room with a shared bathroom and it was no big deal. Had a sink and mirror in the room...plus the room was huge! Would love to go back!!

Great hotel and location. We stayed in the room that slept four people with a private bathroom. The staff was wonderful. The morning cappuccino was fabulous. Highly recommend this location.
