“Staying in Florence”
Reviewed December 14, 2013

The hotel is very close to the congress Center and to the railway station and at walking distance to the main Florence attractions. The rooms are clean and really nice. The buffet breakfast is good and there are many restaurant nearby. Only negative aspect the room that was not in the main building so that to go to the reception or to the breakfast it was needed to go outside. Price was very good (via Booking.com) and it is a perfect choice if you are going to the congress center.

We stayed here from Dec 1 to Dec 4, three nights in total. The location is excellent, 2 mins walk to the train station SMN, 10 mins walk to Duomo. We stayed at room 309, quiet and nice. However, the wifi is not covered in the room, I have to go to public areas like corridor or the louge. No coffee machines or tea cups there. The water pressure is not good for showering. The breakfast is at floor -1 from 7 am to 10:30 am.

We had a lovely room and a great stay at the Hotel Albani. It is very close to the San Lorenzo market and the Duomo. There are plenty of restaurants nearby. The rooms were very clean and ours was large and very comfortable. The staff at the front desk was very helpful and friendly. There are a lot of tour groups that stay here so the breakfast room could get crowded.

This is a first rate, classy hotel with the flair of the Renaissance combined with the local Tuscan flavor. The hotel is just gorgeous, lots of really neat photos and paintings adorn the walls and the hotel has a very rich feeling. Marble everywhere throughout the hotel including our bathroom floor and walls, and very nice, but probably close to the time for another bathroom update to bring it up to more modern standards. The bedroom, high ceilings and furniture was exquisite, but pillows were rather flat while bed was probably the hardest I've ever slept on. The floor had lavish carpet which I prefer wood floors due to dust mites and rugs not as healthy for breathing. Also, no real glasses to drink from but only two plastic cups in the bathroom. The breakfast was the usual European breakfast and very good while it included a pleasing ambience and a very happy and smiling waiter. The free WIFI and bandwidth were perfect. In the evening the maid dropped off two lemon candies along with a note with expected weather for the next day. The flat screen TV in our room was a decent size (although we had little time to watch it) It was a 5-10 minute convenient walk from train to hotel. The location was great and close to most famous historical sites, all within walking distance. All in all, it was a reasonably priced classy hotel and I would definitely stay there again. Highly recommended.

This hotel is well maintained and while near Santa Maria Novello station is on a quiet side street. Public areas are attractive. Our room had a ceiling about 14 feet high with an arched wood-framed beveled mirror wall opposite the arched-framed headboard. Some rooms have vivid wall colors but ours was a restful blue. The marble bathrooms are modern, towels are ample, and linens are really nice. The main drawback is that it is a favorite of tour groups and when the groups converge on the breakfast room, the hotel simply can't handle it--in terms of keeping up with stocking the food, getting the tables cleared and re-set and handling several people at once. The staff gets overwhelmed. There is a nice-looking bar in the lobby that doesn't seem to ever have an attendant. The restaurant food was fairly good but tepid--again they seem to have trouble with their food service. Front desk staff are pleasant.

My wife and I spent several days in Florence this past week. She was displaying a poster of her team's research project at the Cardiology conference. We stayed at the Hotel Albani and were reluctant to leave at the end of our stay. The accommodations were exceptional and the location could not have been better. The latter was true for both the conference and access to the various attractions in this city of art. The major landmarks are only blocks aways.
The room that we had was grand. It was roomy with high ceilings and a spacious bath with adjoining dressing area. The staff at the hotel were very professional and provided excellent service and advice.
A large breakfast array was included each morning that included an extensive selection. It was surprising to see others at breakfast given how quiet our room was.
We had a first floor room that made coming and going very easy.
I wish all hotels could leave you with such a positive feeling. We found nothing lacking and much to savor.

Room Tip: The hotel is located one block from the train station. Be aware of folks offering "taxi."...
