As soon as we arrived, I thought, "oh yes, everyone mentioned these steps." But since getting luggage up once and down once was all, we managed. Great location, clean, friendly, good breakfast-- highly recommend staying here.

We found this hotel to be our favorite during our recent tour of Italy. The location is perfect - walkable to all the major attractions (the Duomo, Ponte Vecchio etc) yet on a quiet alley so very quiet at night. Our room was quite large, with air conditioning, TV and wifi with a modern bathroom. Don't worry about the steps,... More

Small, quite and centrally located hotel. The stuff are super friendly - helped us from car parking to laundry... Most of the sites are 5 to 10 min walking distance. Rooms are big and the breakfast was decent. Make a note the elevator to the hotel is located 1 and half floor from the entrance. Enjoy.

We loved this hotel! Although maneuvering the stairs with luggage is a negative, the whole hotel experience was worth it. Our room was large with a river view. The bathroom was very large also, although the water pressure was not the best, room 26. We were pleasantly greeted by Monte, who offered us a glass of Prosecco. The location was... More

For the second time I stayed at this wonderful hotel and brought along my Aussie girlfriends, who were just as thrilled with this extremely well located place - 2 minutes walk from the Ponte Vecchio bridge, a little further to the galleries and piazzas and plenty of shops, restaurants, cafes and bars literally outside of the hotel, all of which...

This simple but clean, friendly and safe hotel is located in the best street in Florence!

The hotel was in a great location near the river and walking distance to everything we wanted to see. The staff was so helpful! Can't say enough good things about them! The rooftop terrace was a great place for a quiet glass of wine.

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
