The location is almost perfect... its close to the Accademia and to the Uffizi gallery and if you walk for 10 mins. more you can reach Ponte Vecchio. San Marco square is 5 mins. walk from the guest house and you can catch a bus or get a taxi from there. Train Station (S. Maria Novella) is about 20 mins.... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Locanda Gallo for 2 nights. Location is good, only some minutes away from the city centre and with plenty of places to eat around (most of them close on the afternoon), including some mini supermarkets. There was nobody there when we arrived (at around 1 pm) and we didn't know we had to inform... More

We spent a week in this place. We informed the owners two days earlier, at what time we’ll arrive. It is easy to find the place, and at the door hangs a nameplate with the name of the guest house. There was a nice lady waiting for us. She spoke english very well. Both owners were very friendly and helpful.... More

I stayed here with my sister and I found the room to be really nice. Everything is clean and tidy. Rooms are quite large with lots of room for luggage etc, and the bathroom was big too. The decor is sort of old fashioned and quaint, as you would expect an old Italian house to be, and it had a... More

Entrance hall was not inviting upon arrival, could do with a coat of bright paint. When coming back in the dark. The lights were on a timer, and with six lots of stairs to climb after a long day spent in the city, the lights would go off before we reached our floor. Very dangerous. A smell like a drain... More

We were 9 people attending a wedding in Florence and we stayed in 3 rooms in Locanda gallo guest house. The place was wonderful !!! Rooms were very big and absolutely clean. The location can't get better cause you are just 5 min. walking distance from the Duomo but at the same time in a quiet and relaxed street. But... More

I stayed at Locanda Gallo one night before checking into my study abroad program the next morning. The owner, Carolina, picked me up at the airport and completely took care of me on my first night in a new city on my own. She made sure I knew everything I needed to know to get around the city, and I... More
