We loved the quirkiness of this hotel - it felt like experiencing the essence of this lovely old building as it had been in the past. It was simple but spotlessly clean and comfortable. Sadly we were not there long enough as I broke my foot on the Florentine cobblestones. Sara, her father and their staff spoke good English and... More

We were thoroughly pleased with this delightful family owned and run hotel. It was a short, very walkable distance from both the train and bus stations, but tucked away from the throngs of visitors in Florence. It was clean, well furnished with comfortable common rooms on the ground level. We were greeted by extremely helpful personnel and immediately offered coffee... More

I would highly recommend this hotel. It is close enough to walk everywhere, but it is also away from tourists and congestion. The workers are obviously locals, constantly smiling, and will point you in the right direction for meals, attractions, and everything else you would want! You definitely want to stay here!

A very nice family owned hotel. They had wonderful service. Room was clean without a lot of decoration. Even though it was a hotel is felt more like a bed and breakfast. Breakfast area was in a really nice room and the food was very good. Close to the train station which made it even better. I would definitely stay... More

We arrived at the train station in late May with no hotel reservation and, of course, there were several happenings in town that put a squeeze on rooms. The hotel is family owned and one of the members, Sara, was able to book us for only one night. However, she found a room for us at a nearby hotel for... More

We stayed at this hotel in Florence one night with another couple. Sarah was very easy to communicate with and very helpful planing our day. The location is a bit difficult to find, but an easy walk from the attractions. The hotel is warm and comfy, the rooms simple but quiet and very clean. I recommend this hotel.

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

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

Dear Debbie, after reading your review what I can tell is that I’m feeling very sad. It is not because you left the hotel, and not even because you wrote so badly about us (we understand that we can not be liked by everyone, even if I find your words really strong) but because this was a big failure for...
