“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

Perfect location. Upgraded to two bedrooms, two bathrooms with windows that opened. View of Duomo right there! Agree that it can be a bit noisy at night, but worth it for the location and wonderful staff. They were available to answer any questions we had. Thank you!

How could you not be impressed by the first floor apartment with the balcony overlooking the Duomo. You could almost reach out of the bedroom to touch it. A location which means you can walk around to all the main sights and return for some lunch in your apartment. The Uffizzi is just down the square and make sure you book your tickets in advance so you can get in quickly. The staff on the reception were both really courteous and helpful. Well done the beds were comfortable and the apartment well equipped with blankets, hairdryer, dishwasher etc, everything we needed for a great stay. Thanks very much. It was cold when we came and the apartment was warn and cosy, well done

You couldn't really get a better location than Palazzo Gamba. Our spacious apartment looked right over the Duomo. Comfortable, clean and has everything you could want including a fully equipped kitchen. The staff were friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: If you stay on the first floor you can have an apartment with a balcony looking over the Duomo

Superb accomodation in the heart of city and in the middle of points of interest.
Paintings on the walls and ceiling, and magnificient view to Duomo and Baptistry, help you to feel and imagine moments from rich middle age history of Florence. Appartment is fully equiped, very clean, fridge is loaded with welcome items and supermarket is very close.
Extraordinary manager will give you excellent support for all activities you plan during your stay. Feel free to ask. In case you have a car, parking issue is completely resolved by staff from moment of arrival.

A room window that opens up to a view of the Duomo! You can't beat this in Florence! With branded shops, bars and restaurant at your door steps, why stay anywhere else?
We stayed 4 nights on the 4th floor. Ask for the view of the Duomo.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

I booked a room with a view for my daughter and I to experience our first trip to Florence with a four night stay. On arrival Marco informed us that he had good news and bad news and that our room had been double booked and we would not have a room with a view, however after one night we would be upgraded to the penthouse. The room without a view was more than comfortable and we enjoyed our first night but the penthouse was stunning with the most amazing view of the Duomo - you feel like you can touch it.

The location of this hotel is of course what will be most attractive to visitors. you can walk to all venues and come back for lunch or a toilet stop. This really adds to the Florence experience. The service and sense of caring is second to none with lots of advice about where to go and eat with little touches like good quality umbrellas in the room. The rooms are clean and very comfortable and my daughter felt at home when she returned one day to find that the staff had tidied her room and laid out on the bed a knitted blanket that she had been given by her grandmother in the UK who we had just visited. It is these little touches that makes this a stunning hotel experience.

The noise can be a bit of an issue from the crowds below at night, but ear plugs would take care of this and I would have liked an iron in the room. An iron was however brought up to my room when I asked for it. Thank-you.

Room Tip: A room with a view is a must
