A bit hard to find for our GPS, but we called the hotel and they sent a guy to drive our car to the nearby parking house. The tiny elevator does not go down to the ground floor, so we had to carry the samsonites up a lot of stairs. The receptionist was extremely friendly. Huge room with a view...

Wonderful service by caring people - I spent a week at the Alessandra and they treated me like family. Everyone went the extra mile to make me feel comfortable. The hardest part is finding the hotel! Checking out Google Earth before arriving helped because I could see the hotel door, and the stores across the road. If you are arriving...

We stayed in this hotel because the price was within our budget at 80 euro per night B&B and on the map it was obvious that the location was ideal for touring the city on foot. We would normally stay in 3 or 4 star hotels but these were quite expensive so we decided to take a chance on Hotel...

This is a superb option for couples or people with a young family. Great value for money and situated perfectly to access all the best sites in Florence on foot. Superb rooms with character and very well appointed. Great breakfast. I would not hesitate to recommend to family and friends.

Hotel Alessandra was exactly what I was looking for. A clean hotel in a convenient, safe location (I was traveling alone so this was very important).

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
