Great location close to train station and main attractions and very clean tidy room. Has lift which is a plus for luggage. Wifi works extremely well. Staff are friendly and offered good restaurant recommendations. Downside breakfast. Fruit looked stale and overall presentation poor. Unsure other than the cereal if other foods safe to eat. Chose to eat out despite prepaid.... More

Arrived in Florence at the train station and found the tourist office directly across the road from it. They were helpful as we did not have the hotel address just the reservation number. The hotel is located literally 6 minutes walk from the train station in a quiet road which by day is a reasonably busy street with several businesses... More

Staff is really kind. Bedrooms are well decorated and sound isolated. Breakfast is more delicious and diverse than other hotels. Bathrooms are clean and disinfected. Conveniently close to important landmarks in the city by walking.

A charming hotel in a great location. Location is walking distance to all sites in Firenze, but a little away from the main activity, which was nice. We had a quad room which was two stories and had a beautiful outdoor patio on the second level. Rooms are clean (just a bit dusty) and the bathroom was large. Staff is... More

What a delight to stay here! Walking distance from the train and close to all the activities in Florence. A wonderful roomy room with a balcony with shuttered doors and a firm comfortable bed. The breakfast buffet was everything we could expect. Eggs, sweets, all sorts of lunch meats, cheeses, juices, and wonderful coffee. They had a bar with snacks,... More

My boyfriend and I stayed for 3 nights at Hotel Alba Palace in early April. We had just taken the train from Rome to Florence, and the hotel is conveniently located a 5 minute walk from the Firenze Santa Maria Novella station. The hotel is also located very close to many sights and a 10 minute walk to the Duomo!... More

Hotel Alba - Good enough! We have just returned from a 5 day stay at this hotel in Florence. The hotel is a five minute walk from the main railway station and is well located for the Duomo, River, bridges etc. The staff were helpful and extremely courteous and helped us to find our way around. The room was clean... More

Overall is good while staying here. Room is nice and clean. The hotel located in just 2-3 min. Walk from train station and comfortable even we have 2 big luggages. Also there is a bus station nearby so we easily took for Siena one day trip. Anyway, we don't like one of the reception(a man) who 'shout' to us after... More

I was in Florence for a business trip and I stayed in Hotel Alba Palace and was just perfect in every aspect. The room was spotlessly clean and a nice size and Verena at the reception was very kind indeed and helped me out with all the requests. Free Wi-Fi, the location is stunning as perfectly in the city centre... More
