      This was the only hotel that has every emailed me immediately after I booked a room. And this was a personal email. I picked the hotel so I could drag my two bags to the train station the next day. They even agreed to keep on of my bags the day before my reservation! The bed was also more comfortable than most of the other hotels over the month of travel. Room was very clean Lots of towels in the bath! Thank you. Charming breakfast room and the single staff member did a great job trying to keep up with 30 guests

      Only complaint was there was only boiled coffee for breakfast a pot of hot liquid with no taste this is ITaly, where was the cappuciino

      Breakfast area and location were excellent

      Stayed in loft family room. A/C was on bottom floor, so loft was warm while lower area was cold.

      Very clean hotel in the center of Florence. Excellent location. Walking distance to all sights. Bathroom was spacious for a European Hotel. A lot of value for the money. Would definitely stay there again.

      Breakfast was fair. We were told one price for our car and then later told a different price since we had an oversized vehicle. We notified the hotel before arriving in regards to the size of our vehicle and they never mentioned a difference in price.

      I like the location. It just 3 min walk from the train station. The hotel itself is quite nice. Stuff was friendly and the bed was comfortable

      The room and especially the bathroom can be a bit bigger. Internet signal was pretty weak and breakfast could be a bit more hearty

      This hotel is very convienient to all the sites of Florence and within walking distance to the main train terminal. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful and spoke perfect English. The breakfast in the morning was wonderful and plentyful. We walked to everything we wanted to see.

      The air conditioning was great relief as the weather was in the 90,s farenhite and breakfast was served every morning with alot to choose from well maintained and well stocked. Loved having breakfast before going out. Thanks again this was a great hotel for us and the cost very reasonable

      The neighborhood was not the best , but we never felt unsafe, just up the street was the best piezzia, were we met out son and daughterinlaw for dinner dirinks and entertainment. Everyplace was walking distance for us

      Well located, near the railway station or bus station to the Outlets. Walkable distance to the mains sightseeings. Nice reception and very helpful(reserve the entrance ticket of the gallery), room service and cleanliness very considerate.

      Breakfast little simple, but nice garden

      It had everything you needed - we went on a weekend trip to Florence (4 girls) and the room was just perfect

      Conveniently located at a very good price for the facility

      Room was a little cramped

      Well studyed hotel renewal with excellent space usage with a nice florentine style and not usual the international, everywhere look. Excellent service at the reception, friendly and ready to help. Nice room, perfectly isolated room, central, convenient location,excellent price for the what is offered. The only wak point is service at breakfast, I had to go to the kitchen to ask for my tea and coffee. A coffee machine would be convenient and someone constantly present at breakfast to answer any guest requests. It would be easy to satisfy this as a person is constantly at disposal in the kitchen who could look after that.

      The location of Hotel Alba near the main train situation was good it is also just a short walk to main tourist centre. Rooms were spotless clean and cleaned daily the rooms were sound proofed which was good too as street outside was quite busy. Breakfast was continental with a reasonable choice of fruit, yoghurts, cheeses, cold meats breads and pastries. All the hotel staff were friendly and very helpful. There are some excellent restaurants in Florence serving superb traditional Tuscan food within a short walk of Hotel Alba. I would definitely recommend staying at Hotel Alba it was good value for money in a simply beautiful city, Florence.
