Alba Palace Hotel, Florence, Italy
Less than 5 min walking distance to train and bus station. Airport bus leaves from the station every 30 mins. Local #12 bus across the train station to Piazzale Michelangelo, then stroll down to main part of Florence and walk back to hotel makes a nice loop. For an overnight stay it’s adequate and convenient. If staying longer, may consider closer to town.

Nice Hotel. Wife had been there before. Good Breakfast. Quiet rooms....we were on 4th floor at an end room. Close to bus and train station.

Clean, cute hotel in a great location.
A couple of blocks from the train station and walking distance to all the sites- Duomo, Ponte Vecchio, and Academia Gallery to see David. Tons of shopping on the way to tourist spots. The room was clean, WiFi worked well, hot water pot available for tea or coffee in the room. Quiet enough area that the window could be opened without a lot of noise filtering in. Cable Tv (only 1 English Channel). Plenty of restaurants and shopping walkable distance. The breakfast was one of the best ever served. You can tell they take pride in their service and presentation. Phenomenal assortment including meats, cheese, cereal, hot eggs, small panini sandwiches, juices, coffee, tea, danishes, and fresh fruits. In the lobby, a wonderful surprise of danishes, coffee, teas, and snacks are left out for everyone 24/7. The only drawback is the bed. The mattress and the pillows are both extremely firm. Clean, cute hotel in a great location. A great value. Highly recommend this hotel.
