Our family (4ppl) spend lovely 2 nights in florence at Palazzo Gamba in Oct 2013. The apartment is BELLISSIMO! I've been to Italy more than 3 times and stayed at quite a few hotels. This one I like the most considering many factors, location, facilities, services, noise control, space etc. Gamba have all this aspects 5 stars with acceptable price. We all love it and will come back again.

Room Tip: With the room of Duomo view, in the early morning, you can lean next to the window to look at the D...

Our family of 5 stayed at the Palazzo Gamba in July 2013. Our room put me to joyful tears! The view from our room was the most breathtaking view of the Duomo Cathedral (see picture). You can't get a better location than this hotel. You feel apart of the Duomo square while in your room. You literally are a few meters away from the Duomo. The room was extremely spacious and clean. Two large bedrooms and two bathrooms plus a kitchenette. To top it off, the bedrooms had murals on the ceilings which were just beautiful (see picture).
Marco and his colleges were extremely helpful and kind. If you are doing research on where to stay in Florence....look no more, this is the place to stay. Our family has never been so happy with a hotel and give it a 5+star rating!!

We have been to Florence many times and stayed in different hotels and rented apartments. We'll never even look for another place the next time we return. We will stay at Palazza Gamba any time we are in Florence... our apartment here was wonderful. The views of the Duomo are incredible. We were worried that being right on the main square would mean the apartment would be noisy, but as soon as the windows were closed it was very quiet. The apartment was spotless and the staff extremely helpful. Having the elevator was a big plus. An apartment is worth the extra money. Having two bedrooms and two bathrooms with a spacious living-dining-kitchen is much more relaxing.

Room Tip: Our apartment was the Masaccio on the 5th floor (which in Italy is really the 6th floor). The front...

My wife, daughter and I were on our first trip to Florence, Italy. Stayed at the Pallazzo Gamba. Beautiful two bed, two bathroom apartment overlooking the square beside the Duomo Cathedral. A wonderful balcony allows one to sit out and 'people watch'. All 'life' passes through this square. Marco and his staff were most pleasant and helpful. The only problem we encountered was the 'people' noise level late at night also the blaring of several ambulances whose 'station' is at the other side of the cathedral. This in no way impinges on the splendour of the apartment itself and its the 'price to pay' for such a prime and central location.

This place was a surprise. The most outstanding feature was the location, the main bedroom looked straight onto the Piazza del Duomo. The view was really special and turned having your morning coffee into a memorable experience.

Three of us stayed there and the apartment was large and clean. It had two bathrooms. The kitchen was well equipped. The frescoes on the ceiling of the main bedroom weren't quite the Sistine Chapel but were a nice touch.

The staff on the front desk were helpful. It was not the cheapest place we stayed in but was well worth it.

This was one of the most amazing places I have ever stayed. The apartment was great, good facilities and lovely helpful staff. But what made it so special was the view of the Duomo, the Baptistry and the Square.
I genuinely stayed awake so that I could just look out of the windows.

Room Tip: Go there now before they read all these reviews and the price goes through the roof.

This wonderful apartment building with an elevator is located right next to the Duomo; it is very convenient to all of the historic points of interest in Florence. Our economy 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom air-conditioned apartment was nicely furnished, clean and comfortable. The main bedroom has a large walk-in closet. The second bedroom has a free standing closet. In addition, the living / dining area couch has a pull out double bed adjacent to a fully equipped small service kitchen. The main large bathroom has a great shower. The internet access works very well and the front desk staff, available during the day, helps you with all your necessary arrangements. Gelato and everything else is right outside your door!!! Enjoy Florence and this Great Place to Stay!!!

Room Tip: We were very happy with our economy 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment; it has everything you need!
