    I will be bringing a group of 14 people to Hotel Alba Palace in September. It will be my third stay at this hotel. This is the only hotel in Florence I would stay in. The rooms are clean and the sizes are comparable to those in the US. There is such a warm, welcoming feel here. When we arrive... More

    We absolutely loved this hotel! We were there for three days (1 adult and 2 Teens) and the place is great. The room was large and nice. The breakfast was wonderful! They have snacks, juice and coffee out for guests all day long AND they speak English (which was not the case in every city). The front desk folks were... More

    Easy to find and being close to the station makes this hotel an ideal place if you are travelling by rail. We only stayed for one night, arriving early in the morning and leaving early the next day. Hotel was able to mind our bags so we could go off and explore Florence for the day. Room was very comfortable,... More

    The hotel is situated near termini.( train station) and also near down town. We never used any transportation , the hotel is walking distance on everywhere. The rooms are very confortable and the breakfast is delicious, so many options to eat.

    We stayed at Alba Palace Hotel in early July 2015. In brief the hotel is a very short walk, 5 mins max from the main station and is situated just a very short walk from all the main attractions Florence has to offer.

    Alba Palace is a small, lovely, clean hotel. It is only a 5 minute walk from then train station, perfect location. Friendly staff, breakfast is great too. Lots of fruit, juices, eggs, breads, such an spread. My teenagers love it. Highly recommend it if you are looking for a good, clean, homey, and reasonably priced hotel.

    Staying in Santa Maria Novella

    Neighborhood Profile
    Santa Maria Novella
    Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the majority of the people arriving in Florence, which might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists come across the constant hustle and bustle of the station before exiting, taking a few steps and stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It is impossible not to admire the the square, housing one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The area has plenty of local spots to taste Tuscan specialties, but don’t stop in the main streets alone; the narrower side streets always ensure satisfaction. The huge Parco Delle Cascine provides a solution to the need for a green area as well as a historic welcome in the form of a bronze statue of King Vittorio Emanuele II riding a horse.
