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!)

The room we occupied was not as small as eg in Paris and it contained a small fridge. There were restaurants closeby.

Susan's lymphodema is doing really well in the …

Tonight we had a cooking class! Where we made homemade sauce, homemade gnocchi, and homemade tiramisu. It was so fun and definitely an experience. Afterwards we were obviously allowed to eat everything and it was delicious! Then we just came home, studied and what not, hopefully going to bed soon because ...
... hoped I didnt frighten too many children before I had my game face on, ditched Metro plans and hailed a cab from the end of the street and made it to the Termini and on to the train by 7.10 !! Howzat. Fortunately our carriage only sparsely populated so while Rex went to the buffet car in search of brekky, I applied makeup - no mean feat at 250kph let me tell you.
We were in Florence by 8.55 am and had a lovely time wandering around the ...
