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.

It was an early start to the day as all 3 cars needed to ferry 12 people & luggage to the train station.

Susan's lymphodema is doing really well in the …
... most expensive food item gram for gram. It was great but I'm not sure I'd spend the money on that in the US, where it can be 5 -10 times as expensive as here where they're found. That meal at a Trattoria (Mario???) really wasn't too expensive, but the place is so popular you are squashed in with other people at small tables and you get bumped a lot. Steaks are big here, as in large and popular. A lot of people here were eating ...
... out thank goodness. We check out piazza Donatello (I was hoping for a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles day with Michelangelo and Donatello ha ha ha) but realise its a cemetery so we skip going in. It didn't look like a tourist spot at all so we keep walking. We walked past the synagogue and was hoping to go in but one there was a fee and two you can't take pictures inside so again we skip it. The map is put away and we end up roaming the random streets. We find Palazzo Vecchio where the ...
