I recently stayed two nights at the Albion Hotel in Florence with a school group of 17 people. With the history and art of the hotel, I must admit that this was the most unique hotel experience that I have ever had. It was great! The atmosphere is one of warmth from the second you arrive. The family that runs... More

We stayed in Albion for one week. Very nice, homy, clean and friendly hotel. Sarah, the owner of the hotel, may answer you any question and help you with anything. Now she has two babies, Bernardo and Vivginia. Congratulation! We hope to see you again, sooner that later. Of course I would recommend this hotel to everybody! Vladimir and Tatjana.

We have used this historic hotel a number of times. It has been in the family for several generations-- Susanna (born in room 9), Massimo and their daughter Sara are exceptionally fluent in English and very welcoming and accommodating. The hotel is maintained with obvious pride: its walls covered with the family's impressive artwork collection, the breakfast buffet is sumptuous... More

You will find both good and bad rooms at this hotel. We were a group of 16 and some of us had 5 star rooms and some of us had 1 star rooms. We ended up in one of the 1 star rooms! I noticed some of the other reviews written about this hotel had experiences and comments similar to... More

If I could give a rating worse than terrible...I would. I cannot believe anyone gives this hotel a positive review. Don’t even consider staying at the Hotel Albion in Florence. Our experience in May 2013 with the hotel almost ruined our trip to Florence. As we left the lobby and followed the bellman up the stairs, the smell of mildew... More

This is the second year in a row that we stayed at the Ablion while visiting Florence. We stayed here again this year because of the positive experience from last year. We cannot say enough about the staff, especially the owner, Massimo. He hooked up a television in the bar area so that we were able to watch the Colts... More

Most accommodating management in this little hotel in a location that is an easy walk to major museums and churches. Clean rooms, generous breakfast buffet. Only lack was reliable wi- fI. Highly recommend.

We stayed at the Albion for four nights last week, having been very encouraged to book there by the positive reviews on tripadvisor. We checked in and were escorted to our room by a porter. First we went up a flight of stairs to the first floor, which was nicely decorated, and filled with original paintings, as is the breakfast... More

This place is great! Massimo was fantastic, I had a problem getting car hire from the majors that wanted to charge a small fortune for a 4 day hire in July this year. Massimo took me around the corner and introduced me to the owner of a local company that offered me a small car for 1/5th the price I... More

Albion has quite an old furnishing, that probably has not been renovated for 40 years, although you pay relatively large amount for the room. The breakfast is also not impressive, although you have a bit of selection (some value minded guests loved this actually), the quality is very low. One day I decided I had enough, walked around the corner... More
