We stayed 5 nights about a week ago and had a very enjoyable stay in Florence. Staff were efficient, spoke good English but maintained Italian courtesies. Offered to solve a sleep problem ( not hotel related) with an upgrade. Good healthy breakfast ( with patisserie too) in glass roofed courtyard and nice Tuscan décor and homewares. Quiet room, we slept... More

I was very pleased with this hotel. Most hotels in italy are old, small and outdated, not this, the room was large, and the bathroom was pretty up to date. We had the room #1 on the first floor right off the breakfast court. it had a second floor loft (quadruple room) with a balcony looking to the court. Air... More

Verena, Jasmina, Stephanie, and one other fellow exceeded our expectations providing authentic Florentine style hospitality. The hotel's recent restoration complements the historic surroundings with modern comforts. Innovative breakfast buffet starts the day and the best of Florence is then easy walking or catch the hop on bus at the RR station 3 blocks away.

The Alba palace is only 50 metres from Novella Santa Maria square and another 50 from the Train station and airport shuttle bus stop. 10 minute walk from most of the other attractions Uffizi, Duomo etc. I had a single room small but comfortable. Kettle, safe and fridge. B&B only but a really good breakfast. The staff were excellent and... More

When I found the the Hotel was on the Via della Scala, I thought it would be noisy. But when we arrived, I realised that the road was considerably quieter than my last visit. Added to that, my room overlooking the street had two sets of double glazed windows; that's four sheets of glass between me and the outside world!... More

This hotel is a 3 minute walk from the train station and a 5 minute walk from the Duomo, which was perfect for us considering we were in Florence for 24 hours only. The hotel is very charming, small and has a homey feeling to it. The rooms were cute and clean, more than enough for just one night. Overall... More

Great hotel about a 3 minute walk from the train station. Very good and friendly staff, they organised to have my car picked up, parked and driven back to me. Good sized comfortable room. Very good breakfast. Would stay here again.

Nice little place near santa maria novella station in Florence. 5 min walk to the Duomo and less than 10 to 15 min walking to accademia and uffizi gallery.basic breakfast and good evening snacks and drinks. The hotel served our purpose being near(hardly 5 min walk)the train station.

This hotel, located right near Santa Maria Novella, was wonderful. It is located near the train station, and was a short walk to all of the highlights Florence has to offer. The hotel was clean, the room was small but comfortable, and it had a private bathroom. The staff was very friendly, and they provided a very nice breakfast each... More
