Great hotel in perfect location close to everything. Friendly staff and clean rooms. Great breakfast with choices and fabulous friendly staff. No complaints at all and had a great stay. Would stay again if in Florence. We stayed for two nights and found everything to be of satisfaction.

We stayed in this hotel for 5 nights in June. The hotel is in a great location close to the train station and a short walk to areas of interest. There are some nice restaurants located nearby. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast buffet in the courtyard is great - along with the complimentary drinks and... More

The hotel's biggest selling point is it's location. It's around the corner from the train station and an easy walk to the top historic attractions. Our room was tidy, had everything we needed but was a little on the small side. The breakfast buffet had plenty to choose from and was located in a pretty covered courtyard. The only downside...

The hotel is located a short 5 to 7 minute walk from the train station and less than a 10 minute walk from the Duomo, which is very convenient. There is also a fluff and fold laundry a few doors down. We stayed in one of their quadruple rooms located on the ground floor. It had two floors, a double... More

We loved the convenience of the location. It was very easy to find and walking distance from all major attractions. The hotel staff was great, the breakfast was delicious and we really enjoyed our room. We were very happy with our experience.

Surprisingly good experience of staying in Hotel Alba. It is 7-10 min walk from the central train station, and 10 min walk to the Duomo. Very beatiful inside and breakfast area. The room has reasonable space and well equipped. The bathroom was clean and spacious compared to average italian hotels. The breakfast included many choices and was very delicious. Staff... More

The hotel is about a 5 minute walk from the Firenze SMN station and around 10-15 minute walk to the city centre so it's pretty convenient! The service is pretty good, we were given a bottle of wine as it's our honeymoon. The hotel is a bit dated but the room is clean. The size of the room is big... More

Had a very pleasant 3 night stay here in early June. Room size was fine for my needs with enough space for a comfortable short stay. Room had a electronic safe and enough space for my clothes. The bathroom was fine with the shower enclosure being quite compact but still adequate. There was hardly any street noise but there was... More

We always try to find a reasonably priced unique hotel with charm as near to the train station as possible. Hotel Alba was perfect on all counts for this trip with our two young adult sons. It is an easy one turn five minute walk from Santa Novella train station. We had room #1 off the lobby which was a... More

Good location, clean and tidy hotel with helpful staff. Small bathrooms but modern and clean. Biggest problem was very hard uncomfortable beds. Wi Fi can be a little on/ off which I needed for work. Overall a nice clean Hotel, but definitely need to address the hard beds.
