Excellent location close to the station, river and historic centre.Awesome! We loved the decor, which is a mix of modern style with tradition. The room we had was spacious, clean and had comfortable bed. The staff was very friendly. And it's the best value for money we ever had!

The hostel staff is awesome! They really make you feel at home, and make it easy for solo travellers like me to meet new people. The hostel is very well located, it is within a walking range of all the main turistic attractions. I would definitely recommend this hostel to everyone!

AMAZING time at Alex House. Feels like staying at a friend's house because the staff members are so young, friendly, and sociable. Small hostel with 1 main common area, where everyone pretty much has to meet each other. Rooms are spacious.Good wifi, cool people, great experience!

We stayed in the separate small apartment with adress Via Magalotti, just around the corner from the hostel itself. The standard was ok considering the price and our late booking (clean sheets, ok beds, two very cramped rooms and an interesting solution to building a bathroom in a very old house) and the location is very central. And of course...

This place is awesome. On our Euro Trip we were used to taking the metro to the places we wanted to see, but not this one. You are in the middle of everything! The room was great and the price was affordable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They gave us a map and started circling all the must-see...

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.
