Excellent location, near Florence Santa Maria Novella Train Station! From then, it was easy to walk around the city. Hotel staff were kindly and easy to communicate in English. Room decoration is beautiful e was very clean. Internet Services, through wireless, was perfect, for our necessities. The breakfast was unique, with diferent decoration and several options. Typical hotel: small, but... More

This is my first time visit in Florence. The hotel is very close to SMN church and the train station. This hotel is strategically located, as we can visit the main attractions of Florence by walking. The room is very big, and it is ideally for 4 persons. Great room facilities, e.g., 2 LCD TVs, In-room Jagucci, 2 basins and... More

Great location with easy walking distance to many of the sights in Florence. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was very clean. The WIFI worked well in the room. The breakfast was excellent. I liked the glass elevator that took you up to the rooms.

It's really near the station of Firenze SMN. Staff are very kindly, rooms are nice.(Italian interior) and breakfast also good. (There are scrambled eggs. It's important for me) I have stayed a lot of hotels in Firenze but I recommend just here. I've stayed here more than 7times. Anyway you should stay here. And enjoy Firenze!

One problem with tripadvisor reviews, at least for hotels, is that they don't get to the nub of a traveller's concern, which can be stated as: am I getting good value for my money? It's easy to have a great stay for €500 What about a hotel that is asking €150? Is it "better" than one asking €100? In some... More

Excellent location and within walking distance of Florence's world famous attractions and railway station. We arrived shortly before 1pm but our rooms were ready for us. The rooms were clean and comfortable and had tea-making facility. The lights in the room were nice and bright - so many rooms are almost too dim to read in these days. The shower... More

I have stayed at The Hotel Alba with my kids, my husband and with girl friends. It was perfect for all 3 very different trips.

We stayed two nights three days in Florence this September in this hotel. What a delight! Excellent location from train station. Excellent location for getting to all the sights. Lovely clean hotel. Exceptional breakfast. Very polite and helpful staff. A real must for those looking for hotel stay options in Florence that are very cost effective. A definite return.

This is an excellent small hotel in what I consider to be the best location in Florence. Hotel is a five minute walk from the train station, four minutes from the bus station which is convenient if you plan to take the bus to/from the airport. The closest of the major attractions is the Santa Maria Novella Cathedral which is... More
