Today I planned to move on to Siena, but there was a thunderstorm and my ride couldn't confirm a location that wasn't situated on the highway so I decided to hang back a day and attempt to go south tomorrow. It's been raining quite a lot, but the thunder was nice ...
... her friend sitting at a cafe having their first glass of vino for the day. Small town Firenze! Found Clet's gallery - right where I was picked up for my pasta making workshop yesterday!!! He was busy preparing more stickers for his sign alterations - tried to have a conversation with him but his English was as bad as my Italian!! I had decided that I would have pizza again for lunch at the same restaurant as I have eaten at a couple of times previously as I at least know they do ...

The concert did actually have an element of... well. In the middle of the recital, once one of the arias finished, the pianist didn't walk offstage with the ...
We then moved on to see the Duomo, or cathedral. The dome on the Duomo dominates the skyline of Florence due to it's size, it's enormous. The interior of the dome itself has beautiful frescoes which you can stand under and admire. How they painted these by hand, being so high up, is hard to imagine.

These doors represent a leap forward in renaissance art and artistic technique and are quite rightly one of the most prized possessions of the museum. I mean Michelangelo was in awe of them!

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Albani Firenze Florence
AWESOME HOTEL!! Superb Service!!
2 bestfriends traveling europe (5 cities).. This was our FAVORITE hotel. It's very clean and the area is very safe for female travelers. Nearby the train station and about a block away from the street market. Of all things though, their service was outstanding! Breakfast in their dining area was wonderful too, has a large variety including ham, croissants, different cereals, nuts, crackers, juices, yogurts, etc. My overall experience there was just excellent!
Definitely a great location as it is within walking distance from the train station and close to the city center, also located on a quiet street.
When in Florence stay at Hotel Albani
Hotel Albani was great! This hotel has excellent service, and more importantly, excellent accomodations. If you are looking for a nice place to stay without going completely broke, book a room at the Albani.
I was thoroughly impressed with the cleanliness and elegance of the room. The decor was refined yet comfortable. Breakfast was also quite nice, except I might suggest they serve the breads and pastries warm. The hotel grounds were exceptional, and the care taken in each room was much appreciated.
I would recommend this hotel without exception!!
Beautiful hotel in a great location, just a few minutes to the shops and duomo area, just a few minutes to the train station. The hotel itself is very elegant traditional florentine and the rooms are all in bright colours which look a bit funny on the pictures, but when you get there are truly beautiful and very very clean.
The bathrooms are imaculate, all marble, the a/c works great and the food at breakfast was fresh and plentilful(great coffee).
Am highly travelled and thought this hotel was a little gem!
Great hotel in Florence
This is a beautiful hotel very close to the railway station. It is very well located, you can get to all the sights within 10 minutes walking.
The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful and funny.
The rooms were modern and the bathroom was very nice. It was always very clean.
Breakfast was included in the price and was always plentiful. The croissants were wonderful.
I would definetly return to this hotel.
A nice place to stay
Stayed here in the Easter weekend (26-28 March 2005). In Italy a three-star hotel can often be an expensive nightmare so i was searching a good 4-star for my weekend in Florence and i've found Albani. Albani is a modern hotel with many amenities, it is placed near the railway station and you can reach the very center of the city in 5 minutes by feet. The room was very clean and quiet and they gave us even slippers with the hotel logo. The staff was very friendly and efficient. The full price of the room was very high (350euros) but amply negotiable so i paid only 116 euros per night. The breakfast is continental, so no scrambled eggs for cholesterol addicted but with fresh and very good croissants. Definitely a very nice place to stay (if you pay under 200 euros).
Excellent price/quality ratio
Very nice hotel, a good 4 star which is better than some 5 stars I've seen. The hotel is in an old patritian palace near the Station of S. Maria Novella, 5 minutes walking distance from the Duomo and the other tourist attraction. Rooms are nicely decorated, with old style furniture and nice bathrooms. The rooms are much cleaner than in several 5 star hotels I've seen in other European cities like London or Rome, service is very friendly, and price is really cheap. I wish I knew other hotels like this.
Very comfortable hotel!
Hotel Albani was very comfortable and offerred many great amenities. Within a few blocks from the Santa Maria Nouvella train station, it is within close walking distance to everything. It is a gem quite hidden from everything and definitely worth the value.
My husband and I stayed at the Albani 2 weeks ago, and while the room was larger than our Rome hotel and the bathroom was marble and very nice, this hotel needs a face lift. The furniture in our room was rather banged up and some of the decor was a bit garish. The beds were wonderfully comfortable, however, and the location so close to Termini station is a huge plus. The front desk staff was very nice and made dinner reservations for us at La Giostra, as we had requested. Expensive but out of this world cuisine and fabulous atmosphere. Pasta with the truffles still makes my mouth water. Nice hotel--just needs a redo decor wise. Breakfast is typical Italian buffet but with no eggs.
Hotel Albani, a great Hotel
We stayed 4 nights in Hotel Albani, Florence during the month of September 2003.
Everything about this hotel is exciting except its location (being in a street which is not very clean and nice). The staff of the hotel are very polite and friendly.
The rate of the double room we stayed in was very reasonable and in scale of 1 to 20 we would give a 16 to the hotel as far as quality/price is comcerned.
We had one meal in the hotel's restaurent. The food was average but the service was very friendly. If they could improve their food it would be great.
Our best compliments to the hotel's management and staff.
