We stayed 4 nights in Florence hotel Alba. Staff was really quiet. Breakfast was good but the layout of how the breakfast was set up was bothersome. Our first room was 109 which had a tub and shower combination and a door which led to a small patio area with small table and two chairs. Our shower head was broken... More

The room and bathroom was well equipped and with good space. The breakfast room was in in a nice... More

We had a lovely room, with a view of the street. The room is small (but that is normal in europe), but we had no problems with it. The bed was comfy, and the room was quiet. The bathroom was small but perfect (with a good supply of hot water). The breakfast was good, and kept us going all day... More

We stayed at this property in Mid-November after staying four nights in Venice. The hotel is located on a side street only a quick walk from the train station. It was in easy walking distance to most all the sights in Florence. Our room was on the third floor. It was very nice, clean and well appointed. There was free... More

The hotel was nice and clean and breakfast was lovely. Nice choice of pastries for breakfast - the custard croissants were particularly nice. The staff were very friendly... More
