The Gennarini family and their staff were wonderful to work with. They answered all my questions before I even made a confirmed booking - both by Email and by telephone. Check-in was seamless and the staff went out of their way to ensure myself and my three travel companions had accurate information about the museums, art galleries, tours, stores and...

Ciao! My girlfriend and I stayed at Hotel Alessandra in October of 2008 for three nights. We could not have been more pleased. The hotel is located about five minutes by cab from the train station. It was bustling in the hotel office when we arrived in the early morning. Andrea and his mother have been running this hotel for...

We were totally delighted with this beautifully furnished and extremely clean hotel, with its attention to its long history as well as to the comfort of its guests. Andrea provided us with genuinely welcoming, personal and friendly service during our entire four-day stay (marking locations on maps, recommending restaurants, etc.), and really made it one of our most memorable stays...

Thank you for your review, I'm happy to hear that you had an enjoyable stay. Nowadays people not easily enjoy the clip-clop sound of the horses on the cobblestone street, people may find these sounds to be just noise I look forward to welcome you back to the hotel in the future.

Wonderful find in Florence. Quiet hotel on pleasant street within easy walking distance of all the sights. Especially loved the room with the view of the Arno. Rooms are large, pleasantly decorated and beds were wonderful. Sitting area with online access was a pleasant surprise. I will stay here again!

Our room was spacious and elegant, with a small balcony overlooking the street below. Breakfasts were good; service was excellent, and the location couldn't be more central (between Duomo and Ponte Vecchio)! We asked them to get us tickets to the Accademia prior to our arrival, and they were more than happy to do so. The only drawback was that...

This small hotel has a great location, right near the Uffizi and the Ponte Vechio. Rooms are spacious and comfortable, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Hotel is on the second floor, and there are stairs to walk up to a very small elevator, but that's the only drawback.

My wife and I have just returned from a 4-night break in Florence and were extremely pleased with the Hotel Alessandra.

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
