The lodgings are located on one floor of a building that houses several small hotels...and identified only by a small plaque inside a general entry, with the reservation desk actually located at another small hotel, Hotel Berna, across the street. (Anyone with mobility issues...

Perfect location just minute from train station. Room descent and clean. paid for a balcony, extra €20 per night, not worth it. Breakfast is poor pre- packed croissants, Melba toast,cereal etc. Fruit juice good. Good to have kettle in room. Overall OK.

Really close to the train station, literally a 2 minute walk, Affittacamere Alba is also a few meters distant to the main atractions of the city - another 2 minutes away and you are at the Central Market at San Lorenzo and within another 5 minutes you will reach the Duomo.

Wonderful hotel, situated close to everything you need. Clean comfortable room with breakfast supplied everyday. Very helpful staff, absolutely no complaints. Florence is beautiful and a day in Siena is easy as the train station is only over the road (although you could never hear it) e perfetto 😊
