“Great hotel at a good price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

Helpful and friendly staff who accommodated me arriving early and let me into a room mid morning. The room was comfortable and clean and a reasonable size for a single. The bathroom was clean and fairly spacious. The breakfast had a variety to choose from and you were left to yourself. The elevator was a bit cramped and hot, but it was easy to take the stairs when not with luggage. Free wifi and a paper were a plus.
Very centrally located and yet quiet.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the quiet side.

The location was very near to the terminal and it was safe around.
The place for breakfast looks good. The room was clean, everything fine.

However, the hair dryer sometimes out of work and there is no slippers that I expected to have in a hotel.

In general it is good

Great hotel, just around the corner from the station. Good wifi. Very friendly staff, gave us free tea,coffee etc for our room. Excellent breakfast, loads of choice, including fresh fruit, yoghurt, bacon, scrambled egg as well as the usual things, all fresh and delicious! Perfect location could walk to all main highlights easily. Very comfortable room, flat screen telly, even a play station, great bathroom. Would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.

We were a family of four -with two children ages 10 and 7. Hotel was very spacious. We had the bedroom with the loft. The bathroom is very nice. Wifi was great. Located near the train station. Everything was walkable. Only change would be breakfast. Limited items for breakfast. Was the only place in Italy we did not get fresh cappuccinos for breakfast. But this is very minor downside in a great place.

Lovely hotel. Great location. Hotel staff are lovely, especially the lady who worked the afternoon shift, she was lovely. Room was clean and maintained however the walls are quite thin. Great location for the Vatican.

We stayed at this amazing hotel in early July. Our room was for 4. It had a large loft that had a terrace. The room had large marble bathroom. It had nice flat screen TV for each room. It had great Wi fi that actually always worked. (not that common in Europe). In the evening the hotel had wine/soda and snack for its guests. This the best hotel I ever stayed at in Europe.

Room Tip: I like our room which had a terrace.

The Alba was a great surprise once we passed through the front door of the hotel. The hotel is on the street behind the rail station and about two blocks from Santa Maria maggorio church . Ooo and let's not forget the great gelotto on the corner . Easy walking to all attractions . Breakfast was good with an assortment not usually found in European hotel . I would stAy here again if I return to Florence .
