Very close to train station but 30 min or so from most tourist sites. Not many good dining spots nearby except for i4amici on Orocellari 29/r. But near a super market with good takeouts.

The room though large was interior with a tiny window on a shaft and always dark but quiet.

Breakfast staff nice but food not.
Breakfast staff was really nice but food choice not so good and always the same. Weak coffee.

I was glad to leave.

Room Tip: If lightness matters, ask for an off the street outside.

The staff were extremely professional and helpful. We arrived late and they offered to make dinner reservations for us in a restaurant a few blocks away, and it was one of the best meals we had while in Italy.
The room was extremely clean, elegantly appointed, quiet, and very cozy. The location was pefect, too. It wasn't far from the train station or the various sights. I would definitely stay here again. I loved everything about this hotel.

This hotel has a great location not far from the train station. It is also close to the market hall (2nd floor food/drink is excellent) and a small walk to the Duomo.

I have to agree with other reviews the young lady on the reception desk is a star. Very friendly, very efficient, quite possibly the best front desk receptionist I have seen. Just cant remember her name. If the manager is reading this, give her a pay rise!

Rooms are a good size. Bathroom was all marbled and whilst the plumbing has been in for a while the shower worked a treat. The aircon worked well. Breakfast was ok, not the best we have ever had but there was enough to choose from and we were not hungry when we left.

I am a light sleeper and although not far from the train station and the duomo did not get disturbed by noise.

All in all, charming. We are already planning our return

Despite not being our first choice of hotel in Florence but we still enjoyed our stay at Hotel Albani. Location is good, being near to the train station and bus station (to the Mall). Breakfast selection is fairly good. Room a bit small though and not brightly lighted.

Overall the Albani Firenze is a very good hotel which I would stay in again 7/10

The Positives: Room itself was very clean and nicely presented with in-room safe and mini bar (which I always like!) and all of the staff were very accommodating and very helpful throughout our stay
Some Negatives:
We had to move rooms on the first night as the room we were checked into was in a different building to the main part of the hotel and directly above our room was a very noisy 2-star hotel, we were very tired on our arrival and could have done without this, but to their credit (after we complained about the noise) the hotel moved us swiftly and with minimum fuss to another room in the main hotel which was quiet throughout our stay

Minor negatives are that the bar is too expensive. Also the restaurant is too warm with no air-con, the buffet breakfast is average and could do with some improvement (perfectly edible) the hotel do offer some breakfast items from an additional menu to the buffet (but at extra cost) we ordered from this on one day and the quality was very good, we also had an evening meal in the restaurant, which was excellent.

Oh, car parking is expensive too..!

I traveled to Italy from 11 to 15 July 2014, and stayed at the Hotel Albani, located less than two blocks from the train station. From the moment that I arrived, the staff was so welcoming and hospitable, especially the front desk manager, Chiara.  The same was true in  the dining room, where Francesco, a friendly, courteous waiter, went out of this way to make every meal memorable,  especially my fabulous birthday celebration dinner.  The room was great-- colorful, clean, and orderly with just enough space; and even though it was on the street side, it was quiet. Most sights were an easy, safe walk around Florence. I highly commend you to this hotel, its manager, and the staff. When I return to Italy, I will stay here again.

We stayed in Florence for 4 nights, 2 days traveling in Tuscany. The hotel is very nice by all means. It is an excellent choice if you want comfort and some luxury at a decent budget. A good choice for any type of trip.
