We stayed here last October and have finally got around to doing a review. Our 7 night stay here was fantastic from start to finish. Nora was so friendly when we arrived and we were given an upgrade to a 2 bedroom apartment with a balcony overlooking the Duomo. The apartment was spacious, clean and well appointed. The view was...

Our family of 4, 2 adults and 2 children stayed at Palazzo Gamba for 2 nights in September. We were extremely happy with our decision to stay here as it is so well located and we got so much pleasure from being able to open the windows and be right there in the middle of Florence next to the Duomo!...

Stayed with our two boys in a 2 bedroom apartment. The building is located right next to the Duomo and we had brilliant views from our bedroom window. Location is very central, 750 meters from the train station and in the heart of the old city. The quality of the apartment and furniture is very good. The apartment size is... More

The Michelangelo suite has superb views over the duomo and baptistery - good restaurant recommendations from Marco. Alternatively the mini kitchen is handy for a snack or a more extensive meal. This property is very central so don't be surprised by a variable amount of ambient noise. Having said that listening to the accordion player from the window from a... More
