We stayed in the Giotto suite for 5 nights - it is a suite on the 6th floor of the building. As soon as we stepped into the suite, we understood why this hotel is so well rated. The clean, inviting atmosphere was superb and when we opened our bedroom windows we were wowed! We could practically touch the roof of the Duomo from the window. It was breathtaking. The location could not be better. It is a short walking distance from the Santa Maria Novella train station - if we could do it with our son in a stroller and 2 suitcases, so can you :) The hotel administrators are extremely helpful with directions and the recommendations on restaurants and places to visit. Don't miss the old pharmacy by the train station - ask for directions, it is surely a hidden gem. Florence is magnificent and with such a wonderful place to come home to at the end of a busy day of exploring, makes the experience that much better! We had a blast!

Ask for a room facing the Duomo, it is literally across the street. We loved having a kitchen and living area to entertain our travelling companions.

we stayed at Palazzo Gamba for 16 nights in july/11 and I can't think a better place to stay in Florence. We had the Botticelli room , which overlooks the Duomo ... 2 bedrooms , 2 bathrooms , kitchen and living room... reception staff was very helpful , Marco , Norma and Christophe...Great place to stay. Just to mention , housekeeping could improve a little bit... nothing that compromises the stay...

We, a family of 4, stayed in the Raffaello suite which is a 2 bed rooms, 2 bath rooms apartment with two accessible balconies this July. Aside from the convenient location, the apartment is very clean, the rooms are big, the ceiling is high, and the kitchenette's appliances are all new. The towers are thick and changed every day, and plenty of bath supplies were provided. Despite of the July heat, we always felt comfortable in the apartment with air conditions in every room (even in the hallway).

Marco, the manager, is very friendly and attentive. He provided us with all information and recommendations about restaurant choices, supermarkets, attractions upon our arrival. Nora, his assistant, is equally nice. We love this place and highly recommended it.

We stayed at the Palazzo Gamba from May 13-15, 2011. We got the penthouse apartment with 3 bedrooms, 2bathrooms and 2 balconies plus a full service kitchen complete with a washing machine! We didnt expect the accommodations to be as good as it was. One balcony overlooks the Duomo, so close you can almost touch it. The other balcony gives you a breathtaking view of Florence. We were so happy we chose Palazzo, specifically the penthouse apartment as it became our home away from home. The next time we visit Italy, we plan to make Florence our "base" while touring the other towns in Tuscany and we would definitely stay at Palazzo again. Thank you to Marco, Nora and Chris who were very nice and helpful throughout our stay.

The location, staff, views are incredible. Our apartment had an amazing view of the Duomo, it was nice to open the windows and enjoy the fresh air. Thank you again for the restaurant recommendations, private airport transfer, etc.
