Nice hotel just short walk from city attractions
Posted Nov 30, 2016
Our second stay at the Alba Palace, enjoyed this last one as much as the first (eight years ago). Room was comfortable with adequate storage, bed was big and restful. We were on third floor front but heard virtually no traffic noise. Handy position of hotel not far from Santa Maria Novella church and SMN station (near where the coach from Pisa airport drops/picks-up). Walk to end of street, cross SMN piazza and you can see a straight line of the roads to the Duomo, less than ten minutes later you are there. Hotel now provides some snacks and soft/hot drinks in reception in the afternoon, very welcome sometimes. Went to the Medici Chapel, Bargella, Accademia, Pitti Palace plus many others. Bought handbags from the market and lots of other touristy things.
