This hotel in the best location ever for exploring beautiful Florence. The rooms are exceptionally clean and cosy. The rooms are fully air conditioned, which is perfect with the high temperatures outside. The owner is very friendly and accommodating. The breakfasts were delicious. We will definately be going back !!!!! Thank you Stefano for all your help !!! Thank you... More

The locations is amazing. It is in the heart of the Old City, within the waking distance from all Florence attractions. Our room was clean and well preserved. The air conditioning works fine, which is very important when the temperature outside is 35 degrees. The staff is very nice and welcoming, willing to meet all guests's needs.

This is a small B&B with only 4-5 rooms located on top of the hard rock caffe. The building used to be a famous cinema in Florence , so this is a B&B apartment between offices !! The air conditioning is perfect but the rooms are very small with smaller bathrooms , they only have one suits. The location is... More

The best thing about this hotel is the location - it's right in the heart of Florence. We were caught off-guard when we arrived and were told that Gambrinus was no longer a B&B, just a hotel, but there are plenty of cafes and pastry shops by the square which serve as great breakfast locations. As the person before me... More

Service is just terrible. It ruins the whole experience from the stay. When we arrived there was a note on the reception door, with a phone number to call. We had to do an international roaming call and the guy told us he was having lunch (it was 4pm) he arrived after almost 20 mins and told us that he... More

I'm sorry that the service has not been satisfactory for his needs. is true Mr. Nufail had to close the residence to go to lunch. But in 10 minutes he came back to do your check-in asking apology for the inconvenience he had created. For baggage being a residence, not a hotel, we do not have a room for this... More

Staff were great from booking, answering any queries in detail prior to arrival. The hotel is placed in the old cinema which is located directly on Piazza Repubblica meaning easy to roam Florence by foot. Duomo and other major attractions were minutes away by foot yet the room was quiet even with its location in a busy part of the... More

The other rooms are smaller but also nice.. The location is the best in the center of everything. The only con is the small... More

We stayed at Residenza Gambrinus for one night and it was definitely too short! The location is perfect, just on the Plaza della Republica in the center of the old town of Florence. 5 minutes from the Ponte Vecchio and 2 minutes from the Duomo and Via Tornabuoni for shopping. Located on the 4th floor of an old building (with... More

A very nice hotel, in the middle of Florence! Comfortable, clean, cosy in a very nice area, near coffee shops, ciocolateries, tratorie, shops and the most of monuments are 5 minutes walking distance! My only complain is the luck of breakfast for the price we paid!
