Lovely hotel. Great location. Hotel staff are lovely, especially the lady who worked the afternoon shift, she was lovely. Room was clean and maintained however the walls are quite thin. Great location for the Vatican.

It had great Wi fi that actually always worked. (not that common in Europe). In the evening the hotel had wine/soda and... More

The Alba was a great surprise once we passed through the front door of the hotel. The hotel is on the street behind the rail station and about two blocks from Santa Maria maggorio church . Ooo and let's not forget the great gelotto on the corner . Easy walking to all attractions . Breakfast was good with an assortment... More

We only had an overnight stay at Hotel Alba Palace but it is a place we will definitely go back to for a longer stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful especially Jasmina. We were travelling with adult children and booked the quadruple room which was very large and impressive. The upstairs loft room had twin beds + their... More

We stayed at Hotel Alba palace for a couple days in Florence and it was perfect. Our 3 person room had 3 individual beds, and our 2 person room had a very nice balcony, and both rooms were very comfortable. The wi-fi in the rooms was strong enough that I was able to watch netflix at night on a tablet.... More

This hotel has a great location, just a short walk to the train station, the market, and the Duomo. The room was clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was excellent. The hotel provided helpful maps of the city. The hotel is on a busy street and I was concerned about street noise, but we were on the second floor with... More

If you travel to Florence by train as we did from Rome, this hotel is perfect because it is a just around the corner from the station. Florence itself is entirely walkable so I suppose it really wouldn't matter where you get a room so long as you are within the historic center. They have a happy hour every day... More

We recently did a short stay in Alba palace in florence. It is very close (less than 5 min walk) to SMN station. We were a family of 4 and was given a two story room on the ground floor, that was nicely appointed. The bathroom was clean and modern. The front desk was very helpful in providing maps and... More

What an absolutely amazing hotel. Wonderfully big family room that photos just dont do justice to. Room had a double shower and even a jacuzzi!!! Friendly staff, clean modern rooms. Full breakfast daily and happy hour everyday with a free drink and snacks. 7 min walk from gelateria, train station, supermarket and city sightseeing bus. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay.
