What a wonderful place. Top location within meters of Ponte Vecchio and the Uffizi. Helpful, cheerful, enthusiastic, loving staff. Internet. Homey lounge with relevant reading material. Third floor location may bother older, infirmed guests, but an elevator carries guests part way up. We loved it.

My stay at Hotel Alessandra could not have been better. My room was spacious, quiet and clean. The bed was very comfortable. The location was great and easy to find. It was close to all of the sights and yet the street it was on was fairly quiet and uncrowded. Everyone on the staff was friendly and helpful and went...

This is a wonderful little hotel, and a great value. Convenient location, superb customer service, comfortable rooms. We even had a shared bath but never ever saw anyone else using it. And it was always spotless. Andreas was so helpful in making recommendations for restaurants, reserving museum tickets and answering all our questions. We'd definitely stay here again!

Stayed at the Hotel Alessandra for 5 nights, starting May 29. The hotel is in a great location, less than 5 mins walk to the Ponte Vecchio and Uffizi, 10mins or less to the Duomo, very centrally located. The hotel feels more like a home than a hotel, it is warmly decorated and the hospitality and attentiveness of its owners...

We love this hotel and its owners and staff and recommend it highly. It is located within walking distance of many tourist sites and shopping areas. We had no problem with the stairs and elevator to the second floor (ages 63 and 67). But people who don't like stairs or have a medical problem might want to get further information.

Staying in Uffizi

Neighbourhood Profile
Uffizi
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.

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
