    The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The location is excellent and the room was spacious and comfortable.

    Thin walls, some noise. Also lots of stairs but that did not really bother me. Just be prepared!

    The staff made out stay. They were always ready for a chat and to pass on ideas regarding their beautiful city.

    Not really a complaint - but being a little older having to climb one flight of stairs to the elevator was a little tuff.

    Cet Hôtel est idéalement situé, le service est plus que correct et le personnel toujours aimable, attentionné et courtois. (En particulier Monti). Notre chambre était spacieuse et très correcte également. La décoration pleine de charme. Bon petit déjeuner. Notre vol de retour était vers 21h. Nous avons pu laisser nos bagages et profiter de notre dernier jour. De plus nous avons pu disposer d'une salle d'eau pour nous doucher avant de partir. C'est exceptionnel Nous sommes ravis de notre weekend end et vous recommandons vivement cet hôtel!!! (Très surprenant qu'il n'ait que 2 étoiles).

    Superb

    Cleanliness, comfort, location, staff.

    the hotel is in an excellent location, easy reach from train station, shopping and all of the sites in the city are all close (duomo only 10 min walk) the rooms are clean and comfortable, breakfast is simple but plenty available, staff very helpful and willing to assist with directions/locations etc. This was our second visit and we would come back if we visit Florence again.

    Very good

    The host was excellent, as was the location.

    It was a bit worn. Also, leaving the windows open resulted in a terrible mosquito attack.

    Exceptional

    In all the hotels we stayed at during our 2 week trip, the Hotel Alessandra was, by far, the most accomodating of all. They were eager to help us plan our tours and booked them for us. They opened the breakfast room early for us when we had an early morning tour (when did anyone ever do that for you!!). They leant us their own vase when my son sent flowers while we were there! The room was clean, roomy and comfortable. All in all, a great experience and we will be going back there!!

    The staff was tremendously helpful and friendly, and they spoke perfect English. The room was comfortable and clean, and the location was great, close to the major sites but on a quiet street. I would definitely stay here again.

    Superb

    It was very close to the centre of Florence. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The environment was relaxing and tasteful. Internet was easy to access. The breakfasts were great. All in all a great place to stay and I would recommend it to others as a good place to stay.

    The lift was too small for large/many bags!! It would have been more convenient to have been able to stay on the ground floor

    Superb

    I enjoy staying this hotel for 2 nights- the location was excellent. Center of Florence and walk-distance to many many attractions. Highly Recommends to others. I floowed the direction from the hotel website and I was able to locate this hotel without any issues. I will come back again.

    Nothing I can think of- it was what it is for the money worth.. Great-friendly stuff, good breakfast, clean and comfort room and great location.

    We really liked the location, we liked how clean it was - superb shower and bathroom and the air con! The staff were all very kind and friendly

    A small point but we like our anonymity and would have preferred a key system that enabled us to come and go wthout keep handing the key in and collecting

    Good

    The staff was very friendly and helpful. Monti gave us excellent restaurant recomendations. The hotel is centrally located for sight-seeing and shopping.

    You are paying for the location; otherwise it is overpriced. We were able to book far better hotels in Rome for the same price.

    We were delighted by the staff of the Alessandra especially Monti who greeted us with exceptional warmth and hospitality. He also recommended our first night's restaurant which was fabulous. I can't think of anything I'd recommend to change. Keep up the good work and we will certainly recommend the Alessandra to others.
