I spent one night at the Ostello Gallo d'Oro while visiting Florence, and staying in a private single en-suite -- it was excellent in all respects, I wouldn't change anything. I could not recommend it enough. PROS: - Helpful staff who were super friendly, and offered all kinds of tips of where to go, when to go, how to get... More

It's a must stay. The staff is warm, welcoming, and inviting. They are so helpful. They've made our stay here just wonderful. They made us feel at home. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. The hotel is a short walk from shopping and restaurants. The staff would even highlight on a map on how to get where... More

My friend and I enjoyed our short stint in Florence. This hostel was wonderful. My only complaint is the location. It's advertised as being near things, but it's not. It's a pretty decent walk to the main cathedral as well as the train station. Our room had airconditioning. Also while you're in Florence do yourself a favor and go eat... More

This hostel in Florence is ideally located and not a far walk from any of the sites or the train station (SMN). We had a 3 bedded room which had an interestingly located shower at one end and shared toilets just along the corridor. The staff were the best of any of the hostels we visited and the lady who...

We stayed at Ostello Gallo d'Oro for three nights. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the facilities are clean. However, there was no air conditioning in our room and we were only provided with one noisy fan for three people staying in one decently large room. Because it was so hot we had to sleep with the balcony... More

I have stayed in the B&B part of Ostello Gallo d'Oro twice and it is my favorite place to stay in Florence. It is in a quiet neighborhood away from the crowds of tourists, and just a straight 10 min walk to the Duomo and very close to the Accademia. Massimo and his staff are so lovely and helpful.

My partner and I stayed in the B&B section with the double rooms, and could not particularly fault it. The room was spacious and clean (except for under the bed), with a clean en-suite. Breakfast on the terrace was lovely, and the establishment is in a really delightful location. I would recommend it!
