Alessandra Review

An aura of grandeur pervades these clean, ample rooms a block from the Ponte Vecchio. The building, known as the Palazzo Roselli del Turco, was designed in 1507 by Baccio d'Agnolo, a contemporary of Michelangelo's. Friendly hosts Anna and Andrea Gennarini speak fluent English.

    Great 5 Night Stay in January

    We spent 5 nights at the Alessandra arriving on December 30th. The staff was wonderful, making restaurant reservations and helping us with plans. The room was very comfortable and had a nice bathroom. The bed was comfy too! The location cannot be beat - we had no problem walking to all the sites in Florence. At breakfast just ask one of the attendants for a cappucino and you'll get one with a chocolate happy face on it - what a great way to wake up!!

    Service good, bug bites bad

    The service was excellent; all of the staff were friendly. The location was also ideal, as others have mentioned. We were a bit disappointed in the room. We were also plagued by mosquitos in our room. The stairs were not so bad after you got there, but climbing them with our suitcases after a hot walk from the train station was stressful. A lift will take you up the last two stories after you climb the first.

    Right in the heart of Firenze

    Monte greeted us with a smile and cheer. He immediately took care of us and showed us to our room. Made us so comfortable that we felt we were old friends. A/C already on and ready for us to refresh ourselves from our trip to Firenze. We asked about a place to eat (recommended by Fodor's) and found it was a favorite of his also. He immediately made reservations for us and told them it was a celebration. We stayed only three nights but we were very comfortable. The included breakfast was fabulous. Even had "American" coffee as well as espresso prepared for you. When we return to Firenze (must rub the snout of the brass boar and put a coin in its mouth) we will be returning to Hotel Alessandra.
