          Great location and terrific service from the staff (we love Monty!). They gave us an upgrade at no extra cost, so we had a lovely view from our room. We read some reviews that complained about noise, our adivce is close the dang window! Then it's very quiet.

        • Family with children
          9.2

          Although a 2-star hotel, it has 5-star service. I still am amazed by the exceptional quality of service that it's small staff offered. I frequently stay at 5- and 4-star hotels for business and the Hotel Alessandra's staff's service surpasses any that I have ever experienced. Very personal and accommodating. Although the rooms are not new, they are very large and comfortable. The location was exceptional.

          The only negative that I can think of is the flight of stairs to get to the main entrance.

          Helpful and fun staff, great location, super breakfast, use of Internet free, use of 10 minute phone call free to usa, etc! Andrfea and his mother Anna were the best hosts!

          Stairs to get to the lift, only because I have knee problems

          Room was immaculate and staff extremely friendly and helpful. Highly recommend.

          I like staff of this hotel, good location near historical center

          It' s too expensive for room without bathroom.

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          Nice size room. Staff were very helpful. Made suggestions for restaurant. True interest in making your stay pleasant. Great location.

          Difficult to find. Beware, there are some stairs and a small elevator.

        • Single
          8.2

          The hotel has a great location, very near many sights in Florence. The staff is very considerate and helpful. Every dining recommendation they provided was excellent.

          The elevator does not go down to ground level, and there is no help with your luggage. Travel light if you wish to stay here.

        • Family with children
          10.0

          Everything was perfect for our type of holiday. Mother/daughter backpacking for first time in Italy. Great location, walkable to anywhere including trains for public transportation and safe. Clean rooms, staff extremely friendly and tolerant of our efforts at Italian.

          Nothing...perfect in every way.

        • Couple
          9.6

          The staff was extremely pleasant and accommodating, and location in proximity to Ufizzi and Piazza Della Signora is perfect. In summary, this is a very nice, affordable B&B that's in an ideal location.

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          The location of Hotel Alessandra was perfect. It's on a very quiet street with great views. The staff was terrific - Andre and his mom Ana were so friendly and helpful, and Monti at night goes out of his way to make you feel comfortable. Our room was spacious, clean, comfortable The breakfast was great and the cappuccino with the happy face on it made the trip perfect.

          The air conditioning wasn't really cool enough.

        • Single
          10.0

          I think there is hardly any better value for this price in Firenze. Everything was perfect: the staff was extremely kind and helpful, the room was big and very clean. The location of the hotel in short walking distance of all major highlights of the town is another plus.

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          This is centrally situated hotel, wonderful for anyone wanting to take full advantage of the city of Florence and all its treasures. Our room looked out on the river Arno and was very close to the Ponte Vecchio. The staff were very friendly and helpful and our room large. Just perfect for a city trip of a few days.

          It is situated on the 2nd floor of what is probably quite an old building. Access to the lift is up a flight of steps which would be a difficult for anyone with a mobility problem.

        • Single
          9.2

          The room was relatively inexpensive, and in a great location in Florence very close to the Ponte Vecchio

          The front desk was only open until 11:30, so if you wanted to get into your room after that you had to buzz in and wake the person attending the desk at night. Not the most fun thing to do.

        • Family with children
          7.0

          WE were shocked to find 2 floors of steps before you could take a lift. wE had very heavy bags. tHE owner carried our bags up but this was upsetting and no mention of it in description of hotel.

        • Couple
          4.2

          The location is great.

          The hotel is horrible, with a creep environment and uncomfortable rooms with bad smell and bugs. The price is very high for what it offers.
