    We greatly enjoyed the breakfast at the Alba Palace. We also enjoyed the afternoon and evening snacks And coffee service that was available. The room was clean and comfortable and close to all the sites in Florence. The hotel is a short walk from the train station as well.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Good location , dated hotel .

    Think this is the smallest double room I have ever stayed in . The showeroom wasn’t big enough to dry yourself in . The decor in the room is rather drab , no water in the fridge and old fashioned blanket on the bed , I needed another as it was cold but they didn’t have any spare . The staff were lovely , the location was excellent but my room was very disappointing .

    Great Hotel, Great Location

    The hotel is conveniently situated near the train station and within walking distance to almost all tourist destination. The hotel is clean and well maintained. The room is on the smaller side but comfortable nonetheless. Breakfast has wide selection and they were well topped up. Overall, a great hotel in a great location. We had a pleasant and stress-less stay with our toddler. Well recommended!

    We stayed December 10 to 20th. Excellent service from a very friendly staff. More-than-adequate breakfast. They'll even make you a capucchino if you want one! Guicy took care of us in the breakfast room. Lovely lady. Rooms were extremely clean. They even mopped the tile floors daily. Front desk was helpful in giving us directions. I consider this hotel an extremely good value. A+++

  • 8.0.Very good

    I liked the constant availability of refreshments in the lobby area. There was always a selection of sweet and savory snacks and hot or cold drinks. I didn't like the crockery, namely the mugs and cups. The mugs had no handles and so it was difficult to handle when hot. The cups were too small and too wide at the top, cooling the contents too rapidly.

    The hotel is walkable from Firenze SM, SM Novella Church and Duomo. The staff were accommodating. Housekeeping was top-knotch. The only issue was the air conditioning wasn’t working so we had to leave the window open throughout the night where there was nonstop noise from the street below.

    Everything was awesome about this property except for no air conditioning. Had to open windows and it was really noisy during the night. Pillows could use some updating. They were flat and hard. Breakfast was great and location was great. Staff was great! Only a few minutes to the train station.

    Find a Better Place to Stay in Florence.

    The room and furniture including beds are from early 1950's. The room had a very strong odor and only one window (terrace door that you can not keep open) for fresh air on the second floor. The room was clean and teh day staff was great. Breakfast was the best part. The front desk person during the night time was rude. For any question his answer was no. For the money charged, you can surely find a better hotel.
