We selected this hotel because of the location, the expected offerings and great reviews (including offered prize). We were not disappointed at all. Everything was better than expected: In the middle of everything, but quiet and relaxing. Excellent "old fashioned" rooms, but with modern details, like renovated bathroom, noise isolating windows (perfect ones!!). Ours was wide and comfortable (20), clean,...

We found this hotel on TripAdvisor and were Not disappointed. The location is great, very near the river. The rooms are spacious compared to most European hotels and the staff could not have been more attentive and helpful. They offered us a welcome drink on the roof terrace when we arrived and gave us great suggestions for places to eat...

Everything is great about this place: spacious room, friendly and helpful staff, good breakfast. We will stay there again if we ever return to Florence. The only downside is that you have to walk up a couple of flights of stairs to the elevator but that was not too bad. That's to be expected in many accommodations in this part...

This hotel was fantastic! It was the the best accommodation on our trip to Italy. The gentleman who checked us in was delightful! He was sweet and engaging and the right kind of funny!

We're happy to recommend the Hotel Alessandra as a great place to stay in Florence. Excellent location; friendly and helpful staff; good breakfasts (apple cake especially!); and our room was just what we wanted: we'd asked for a room with a river view, and the view from the room we got (room 26) was delightful - the Arno, and an...

Oh yes! Never have stairs and a small lift been more talked about in the history of the universe! Our aim is that they should never be a surprise for anyone. Unless you have lots of young kids or real mobility issues, the stairs are never normally a problem and allow you justify just one more gelato, which is never...

A lovely hotel with smiling and helpful staff. The location is unbeatable. The building is attractive, our room was huge and well decorated. I'd happily return which I have never said of any past Florence hotels.

I can not say enough how lucky we were to choose Hotel Alessandra. I found out that my two college age kids wanted to visit Florence for a few days apart from their stay in Milan.

We were so welcomed by the friendly staff at Hotel Alessandra, especially Andrea Gennarini, Monti, and Christopher. When we traveled to Venice for the weekend and returned for another day in Florence, we felt like we were coming home. Our room was spacious and we enjoyed the breakfast every morning. It was nice to be so close to the Duomo...

"Home away from home" is one of the very nicest things that can be said, so thank you. And what can be better than help making a dream come true? Perhaps one day you will make it back to our city and we can do it all over again.

A comfortable pensione on a relatively quiet street near the Ponte Vecchio. The staff is very kind and helpful, and Andrea in particular is quite knowledgeable about the neighborhood. The breakfast is what you want, whether that is just a quick espresso or bacon and eggs. Highly recommended.

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
