“Very nice hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2012

Very nice hotel, as nice as another 5 star we stayed in the country. Excellent service.

Our only complaint was we were on the main floor which meant we couldn't use our window/open the shutters as we backed onto an alley at ground level. Also our shower had very little water pressure.

We took a little while to find it - head out the main entrance of the train station, the street and the hotel are on the next street which runs parallel to the train station (you can go right or left to find the street the hotel is on)

My wife and I found this hotel by chance after a poor experience with another property referred to us by a Tourist Operator near the Railway Station. Staff were friendly and helpful, meals were well presented and tasty and nothing too much trouble. The little courtesies extended were very much appreciated and noted. We will have no hesitation referring this Hotel to others seeking a well located inner city place to settle when not shopping or "touristing" in this magnificent city!

We originally booked a hotel through another website that was supposed to be close to the city center.... It was no where close. We were a 20 minute walk to any of the sites. We arrived and The hotel was horrible so we rebooked with Hotel Albani. We were treated much better. The hotel was clean, nice room, good and affordable food. Basically across the street from Train station and an actual 5 minute walk from sites such as the Duomo. This is a great hotel and because of its location you don't have to pay for cab fare anywhere. Free wifi and breakfast included. Excellenr choice that is affordable in Florence!

OK - we upgraded to this hotel from our initial choice and VERY HAPPY we did!

Staff were great. Even handling an upset taxi cab driver, who was trying to take advantage by pretending not to understand. Very helpful and always available.

Hotel rooms very nice, clean and roomy.

Breakfast - our rooms included breakfast which was very good and filling.

BTW - WIFI is included

Room Tip: Rooms on the street side are louder and prone to morning noise and night time revelers. So ask for...

The hotel was excellent. Its location suited our needs perfectly, because we arrived by train and it is on a quiet street just a block or two from the S.M.N. station. Furthermore, one can walk anywhere within the Centro Storico from the Hotel Albani in just a few minutes.

The rooms and common areas were immaculate, tastefully done, and quite comfortable. The high speed wi-fi internet was the best that we have experienced in any hotel in Europe. It worked everywhere in the hotel, and it was free with no need for a password.

The staff couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. They even volunteered to arrange packing a to-go breakfast for our group of 27 people--teenagers and adults-- in order to accommodate our 5 a.m. departure.

I was the group organizer. I heard nothing but extremely positive comments from our participants about the facility, the breakfasts, the location, and the friendliness of the staff. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

I stayed in this hotel with a friend in a classic twin room for four days and had a very pleasant experience throughout our stay, starting with prompt responses to my enquiries via email prior to our arrival.

The hotel is very conveniently located, no need for a taxi from the airport as the bus stops at SMN station and the hotel is 5 min walk from there, quite easy to find. There is a small but well stocked supermarket on the way as well as some other shops but once your turn off the busy road onto Via Fiume you are away from all the hustle and bustle – no problem sleeping with window open as far as noise is concerned and with a window shut no noise can be heard from the street at all.
It is easy to walk to the centre and also convenient for catching busses to other places (we went to Siena for a day - 15 Euro return, busses stop in the Sita bus terminal behind the station and run frequently - they printed a time table for us at the hotel). Open top tour busses also stop nearby – not sure these are worth 15 Euros though, ok to pay for one person but I wouldn’t pay for a whole family to go on it – it would be cheaper to get a taxi to Michelangelo Plaza and the rest is close enough to walk to.

The beds were comfortable, there were slippers, complimentary toiletries etc in the room, all as described on their website. We had good WiFi connection in the room and breakfast was great: good variety, fresh and plenty of everything regardless whether we were down for breakfast early or late. Never had to wait for a table either.

And last but not least the hotel staff – not naming anyone in particular as everybody we approached with any request or query was helpful, courteous and competent, all spoke good English. The night porter is a funny guy, doesn’t lose his sense of humour even at midnight!

I would certainly stay there again and would recommend Hotel Albani Firenze to anyone looking for a reasonably priced, conveniently located 4 star hotel with good breakfast and service. Unless you can afford a 5 star hotel in Florence, there is no need to look for anything else.

We stayed at this lovely hotel on Via Fiume. The team at this hotel from Isabelle who handled our initial reservation to all the staff were just charming.

This hotel may not be the top tier of Florence hotels and in some areas looked tired. BUT that was inconsequential because of the team.

Delightful stay. If you want to move further afield for the day the hotel will arrange for car and English speaking driver. Insist you get Vieri who made our day a most interesting one.

Top marks to all concerned.

By the way we flew Meridiana Fly. DON'T
