“Beautiful boutique hotel”
Reviewed 17 March 2013

Like the city, the hotel has its charm and truely enjoyed every bit of our stay (2 nights) in the hotel. There is nothing we can thing of that is did not go well for us and we will definitely return to the hotel again.
The hotel located at the center of the city and is walking distance to all the famous tourist sites.

i stayed at the gallery for nearly two weeks. not once in this long stay did they disappoint. understated elegance, clean, modern, light and airy and chic. The room was well appointed. Windows open for fresh air, but when shot, the room is absolutely quiet. Sound proofing is excellent. Room service arrived every morning within 10 minutes of calling. The library is a lovely sitting area. The bar is quite fun. The location couldn't be better - right on the Arno river at the edge of the historic covered bridge populated with gold merchants. Staff are great. It is really a very very nice hotel.

Originally, we booked four nights with Continentale, which is the sister hotel but unfortunately it was closed for renovations. Prior to our travel arrangements, we had been notified that our stay would be at gallery instead. Upon arrival, we were given an upgrade to another room, which was an incredibly large room for European hotels. We did not have a breakfast package, so we ordered room service one morning, went down to the "library", (the dining area) and ate out the other three mornings for our stay in Florence. We would recommend dining outside the hotel if breakfast arrangements haven't been made prior to travel as it can be costly (25 euro per person/ per day). The neighborhood was generally safe and very quiet, also very easy to find as its right near the ponte vecchio. The location is very central, and a taxi stand is right around the corner should you need one. The duomo, uffizi and other shopping areas are all within walking distance. Make sure you have on good walking shoes! The bed was quite comfortable, however I found the room to be a bit cold. The room has a max temp of 24 degrees Celsius. You may ask the front desk to change that if you want or need to make it warmer in the winter. Though they allowed us to increase the heat, perhaps because of the size of the room, I was still cold though my boyfriend was perfectly comfortable. The bathroom had plenty of counter and shelf room for toiletries. However, my only pet peeve was the shower!! Though the pressure and temperature were excellent, every time we got out the shower, the water dripped out the seam of the tub and shower door and each time reached the bathroom door. So, we had to use a towel after each shower to mop it up, even when we placed a towel near the edge to prevent it from leaking. This may not be every room, but it was definitely in ours. There wasn't much of a view, only another building, so we left the drapes closed. Overall appearance was very trendy, hotel staff very friendly, fluent in English and accommodating. We would stay here again, loved the location and atmosphere of gallery hotel.

A greatly detailed and extremely informative review, thank you! We appreciate feedback such as the one you kindly have provided. As for the temperature of the room we are able to adjust it from the reception allowing guests to adjust it 3 degrees higher or lower from the temperature set at the reception desk. We apologize for the inconvenience with the shower.
And I couldn’t agree more, good walking shoes are highly recommended when exploring the cobblestoned streets of Florence! Great advice for other fellow travelers! Thanks again for the wonderful review!

Perfect Location, great service, nice-elegant-clean environment, sensible room space. What else can you ask for?
Location is 1 minute from Ponte Vechio; 5 from Ufizzi's Museums; 7 from Il Duomo and 12 from Academia. Simply very centric.

We stayed 3 nights In the Gallery Prestige room that was fresh and well maintained and surprisingly quite spacious, which I wasn't expecting. Only downside we the lack of floor heating in the room. The hotel itself is quite chic and trendy with excellent staff. When we checked in we were offered the buffet breakfast at a 50% discounted price (25 euro) which we took and we were not disappointed. There was an excellent selection of food, served in a magnificent Library Room, which added to the experience and made all the more memorable. Hotel is in an excellent location, with the Ponte Vecchio at your doorstep and the SMN Station and other tourist attractions within 5 to 10 mins walk away. Would definitely stay here again.

We are glad to have stayed 4 nights at the Gallery Hotel Art. The hotel itself is fancy with nice details. The rooms are fresh and well-maintained. I do not agree with some comments here that the rooms are too small. All the place you need is available.

The staff (all fluent in English) are really friendly and helpful.

The only reasons why I decided not to give a 5-rating ware the rather thin walls and the breakfast. We were disturbed a bit by our neighbor as we could hear everything he said through the wall. On the other hand, everything was quiet on the room floors after midnight. We were not disturbed at all by the bar on the ground floor. Although the breakfast was fancy and really nicely presented, it was a bit price (25 EUR). If possible, book the breakfast in a package deal in advance to get a better price.

We will definitely stay at this hotel again next time we are in Firenze.

Room Tip: Some rooms (604-605-606) on the 6th floor have a balcony overlooking the city and view on the Palazz...
