The Hotel Alba Palace is clean, offers a great continental breakfast, and has a wonderfully friendly staff! The rates are very reasonable, especially considering how centrally located it is! I would stay here again.

Close to the train station and also the main historic centre of Florence. Our room and bathroom were not big but big enough for our 2 nights stay. Breakfast was standard continental style which was more than adequate.

Mini bar was well stocked and prices were reasonable. Walking distance to the main sites.

Would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a base in Florence from which to explore this amazing city.

A very well situated , nice hotel, perfect for visiting Florence. Near to railway station so easy to move cases, close to bus station so good fir excursions too.
Rooms are lovely and have been updated in the not too distant past. We stayed in room 001 which had a 2nd story which our 2 teenage kids occupied. A very good space .staff were friendly and unobtrusive , unlike others we were disappointed with the breakfast selection. Compared to the Ecohotel in Rome and the Antico Moro in Venice the breakfast wasn't as good in terms of choice. Altogether though a very good hotel and I have no hesitation recommending it to others.

This hotel is very average. Close to train station and the Duomo. Breakfast is not to be desired. Room and bathroom are very tiny. They never answered any of my numerous emails prior to arrival which really made me paranoid if my reservation is in their system. Only the night front desk guy is the one who seems to be enjoying his job, the rest of the staffs were like "whatever". They were like very tired doing their job that they don't want to entertain questions from guests. The only kudos I could give to is the one in-charge of the breakfast buffet. She's very polite and very prompt when you request something from her. I will not recommend this hotel to anyone especially to my friends.

The building that houses our hotel is very ancient , it was part of the old cloisters of Santa Maria Novella, it has beed completely renovated with all the modern comforts, but some rooms are not large like the modern constructions.

Excellent hotel room. It had a loft for the kids and a large whirlpool tub for two. Two TV sets and well stocked fridge. Location was right by Santa Maria Novella and the train station. Very convenient. Walking distance to major sites like the Duomo and Plaza Signoria and galleries. Highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Highly recommend this hotel.
