Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Alba Palace Florence
Nice little hotel
Good, central location, within walking distance from all of Florence's main sights. The rooms are small, but quiet and clean. The dining room staff could use a little friendliness assistance, but were okay. The desk staff was nice.
My husband and I stayed at the Alba in October, 2003. It was a short walk from the Florence Rail Station (but you may need to ask directions!) We found it conveniently located to the central area of the city and also the tour buses left from near the rail station. The room we occupied was not as small as eg in Paris and it contained a small fridge. There were restaurants closeby.

Another hot day and we went on the Express train, via Roma to Firenze. The train got up to 293k - again very smooth. There were a lot of tunnels in the stretch from Roma to Firenze so Simon got some blogging done. We arrived just before 1pm and it was 33degrees. We got a taxi to hotel as it was so hot. Susan's lymphodema is doing really well in the …
... lunch and some sightseeing so the the maid could finish cleaning. Since Dee and I spent 2-weeks in Florence last year, much of the area is still familiar to us, so we returned to one of the places we'd enjoyed during that stay, La Petite, a small bistro-like eatery with a sidewalk terrace near the Piazza Repubblica. Our lunches were simple but tasty, with generous salads and veal cutlets taking center stage. The real action, however, took place around us and in our face, as one of ...
... for Firenze where we could have the afternoon and night to ourselves. It rained all the way and didn't let up until later in the evening. On arrival at our hotel there was also a couple of other tourist buses checking in...with Yanks! Hearing 60 plus yanks all talking at once in the foyer is enough to scare anyone off so after checking in we all quickly went our own way exploring this beautiful city!
Pat and I headed for the ponte vecchio which was a brisk ...
