Staff is very flexible with requests. Breakfast was quite decent and the location allows you to walk to their main attractions.

Dust, dust, dust ... everywhere. As if it hadn't been cleaned for a week. Making a specific request to Reception didn't help.

Everything. It smelled like sewage. Staff not friendly. Our pocket bathroom wouldn't close unless you wrestled with it.

Breakfast is limited for vegetarians.
Very near the railway station in a quiet street in the heart of Florence. You can walk to all the attractions.

The location is great...minute walk away from the Piazza Santa Maria Novella. The simple, but lovely breakfast is wonderful and makes for a great start of the day. Staff are very friendly and helpful, and the hotel is pet-friendly...

The Hotel Alba is situated about a 5 minute walk from Santa Maria Railway Station and also within walking distance of The Duomo, The Uffizi and other cultural attractions. A clean, comfortable property and a full breakfast is included in the tariff.

We had a lovey terrace adjacent to our room. Not all rooms have a terrace. It appeared the 1rst floor rooms did but not the other floors. The stay was delightful and they served a full breakfast.

The hotel decoration is quite interesting and renaissance style. Staffs are helpful. Breakfast is good but within a small range of selection. However it's fine to me personally. Very nice location, just few minutes from train station.

Our room was smelling cigarettes when we arrived. opened the windows and left. when back it was still same. asked for a room change. they didn't. lady at the reception said ou should have told when you realized the first time you were in the room. Come on! The breakfast was not good. Terrible service. When I was there all tables were full of plates and left overs. One lady was not enought to tidy up. I made a table ready for myself to have breakfast. The variety was very poor.

nice location, and breakfast

In addition to a good location, charming and helpful staff and an excellent breakfast, my wife and I were most struck by the elegance and aesthetic sense of the hotel. Again and again - in our bedroom, in our bathroom, in the lift, in the breakfast room - we were delighted by the sense of shape and colour. Most visitors to Florence are attracted by the major art works. The Alba Hotel ensures that from the moment of arrival to the moment of departure their guests are in a lovely but subtly structured environment.
