Reviewed 27 November 2013

We have recently returned from a 3 night stay @ the Palazzo Gamba Apartments in Florence. We had the 2 bedroom Donatello Suite which overlooked the Duomo. What a stunning view! The rooms were spacious, beds comfortable, living space was well equipped and everywhere was super clean and so convenient to explore the city.
My first contact was with Nora by email, she was very helpful in booking a restaurant for the Saturday night in advance of our arrival although we did not meet her as she was away on holiday at the time of our stay. However, we met Marco who was also very friendly and helpful.
Although it did not detract from the overall experience of our stay, it is worth mentioning that there is a fair bit of 'people ' and 'ambulance' noise from the street below which may be a problem if you are a light sleeper.
I would definitely recommend it and will certainly stay here again should I return to the City.

Room Tip: Spectacular view of Duomo from Donatello Suite.

We stayed in 2 bedroom apartment for 2 days which overlooked the Duomo. So near and magnificient indeed. We have never stayed so close to a historical site before and Gamba was so close and being a centre of activities, you can see life going on- the street sellers, pedlars, the shops and the visitors all together from night to break of dawn. So certainly not from those who needs quietness to sleep.Best of all, you can have Duomo to yourself in middle of night..

Room Tip: Get a room facing the Duomo

Excellent location, room, and most important, staffs. Stayed two nights in their family suite, very nice historical room, huge living room with a basic equipped kitchen, separated bathrooms, so good for family trip. Location is unique, in the centrum area with is 15mins distance to everything, have a best view to the church from our own windows. Two staff I met there, Noah and Christopher, is the best hotel crew i never met, got out their way to help us on different issues.
Recommend to everyone who wants to have a brilliant experience at Florence.

Room Tip: room with church view is the best choice for sure

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.
