If you're looking to stay somewhere with a highly individual sense of style, the Hotel Albion might be to your liking. The hotel is a nineteenth-century Neo-Gothic palazzo not far from Santa Maria Novella and only a 15-minute walk from the Piazza della Signoria. Staying here is an unusual experience from the moment you walk into the lobby — your... More

I can really recommend this hotel. It's quite centrally located and only a 10 minute walk from the Duomo and 5 minutes to the central train station. It's housed in a 16th century palazzo and run by a family. Ideal for tourists, probably a bit less for business travellers. The rooms are spacious, functional and clean. Equipped with the usual,...

This is hands down our favorite hotel in Italy. We've been to Florence many times now and always stay at the Albion. Sara, Massimo, Susanna, Nik, and everyone else who at this hotel is amazing to work with and so helpful. The rooms are comfortable, the location is conveniently walkable from all of the tourist sites (but also far enough... More

We had the pleasure of staying 4 days in this hotel during our time in Florence, and we truly enjoyed it. The room was spacious, clean, and well equipped. However, the true highlight of the hotel is the owners,Sara and Massimo. They made us feel at home and were always there to help out with directions and suggestions about places... More

Great service from owner Massimo and his daughter Sarah. One of them always seemed on duty. They both had a can do spirit. Room was clean and comfortable. Location was also very good and loaner bicycles made getting around town very convenient. Would definitely stay there again too.

We recently stayed here for two nights. Got lucky and received a family-sized room. Very spacious, both the living area and bathroom. Clean, comfortable with plenty of linen towels and furnishings. The room had a cozy, mid-twentieth century feel. Also included was a bidet, deep tub, TV and safe. Locking and unlocking the door was a little tricky so make... More

The hotel is located on a small but busy junction and even with the window shutters closed it was quite noisy. Also my room was rather dark as the only window was small and high up. Apart from that the room was a decent size, bathroom ok, although I would have preferred a bath, and everything seemed clean. A nice... More

I just returned last week from my third straight year to visit Greece & Italy with students from our school (Kingdom Prep in Lubbock, Texas). During our 12 day trip, we stay at a number of 3 & 4 star hotels; however, the Hotel Albion is always my favorite. This hotel is unique, warm, and the service is superb. The... More

If you want a sweet, clean, inexpensive, and unique place to stay in Florence, you won't find a better one. The family who owns this intimate hotel is wonderful. The rooms are named after famous women, which is a big plus in my book. We stayed for 10 days and felt very much at home and well cared for. The... More

Staying in Santa Maria Novella

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the majority of the people arriving in Florence, which might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists come across the constant hustle and bustle of the station before exiting, taking a few steps and stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It is impossible not to admire the the square, housing one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The area has plenty of local spots to taste Tuscan specialties, but don’t stop in the main streets alone; the narrower side streets always ensure satisfaction. The huge Parco Delle Cascine provides a solution to the need for a green area as well as a historic welcome in the form of a bronze statue of King Vittorio Emanuele II riding a horse.
