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

the rooms were nice with each being unique. The staff was very helpful and accomodating. A nice breakfast buffet. The only drawback being the climb up a number of steps from the street level to the hotel reception because the elevator was extremely small and you need to wait

The location is very central. An easy 10 min walk (max) to the train or bus. Super close to museums. Amazing restaurants and shopping all around. But, the best part is the service at this hotel!! The family is so lovely and accommodating. They offer a most wonderful breakfast.

My wife and spent a few days at Hotel Alessandra in 1998 while on honeymoon in Italy. The hotel is ideally located in the center of Florence, within walking distance of everything you would want to see. The rooms were clean, bright and comfortable. It was the late 90's and WiFi

We just had a wonderful stay at the Residenza Alessandra which is part of, but just across the street from, the Hotel Alessandra. Our apartment combined the spaciousness of an air Bnb with the excellent and very warm service of a boutique hotel. The owner and his staff went out

Coming by car we suggest you to print the PDF map available on line on the official web site. We suggest to drive directly to the Garage and walk to the hotel (Around 100 meters on foot). GPS in town is not working properly this is why we prefer to suggest you to print and follow directions from the web site. There is no need to arrange a booking for the space since there is always availability for our guess. The cost is Euro 25.00 per day and the Garage, After your arrival there, will proceed with all needed steps to register the entrance of your car in the city center. Hope it helps Andrea Gennarini

Thanks for your mail. All superior rooms (Suite, Junior Suites and superior room overlooking the river) have frigobar in the room. If you select a room that has no frigobar we will be able to hold a bag for you in our frigo and you can have when you need. The best way to booking with us to get the best on line rates/conditions is always directly using our official web site. Hope this help Regards Andrea Gennarini
