La Casa del Garbo

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 May 2011

From the moment our taxi turned onto La Piazza della Signora, we knew we loved the location of this hotel. The room and the service did not disappoint! Our only regret is that we only stayed in Florence for two nights. We will definitely return to La Casa Del Garbo for our next (longer) visit.

This hotel is situated in the most picturesque square in Florence. We arrived in Florence by car, and the garage that the hotel manager had proposed us, was only 200 meters away!!! The room had two absolute separated areas. One “pure” bedroom with a double bed and the other area with a double bed a small living room space and a kitchen, fully equipped !!! That room had an excellent and unbelievable view over the Piazza della Sinioria looking across the House of Medici, an amazing building-castle.!! We were only few blocks away of everything in the center of Florence and 100 meter from the Arno river and the magnificent bridges. I will definitely booked again this hotel when I will visit Firenze again !!!

We stayed at the La Casa Del Garbo for 3 nights while we were in Florence. The location can not be beat!! It is within walking distance to everything. The staff is very helpful and accomodating with everything from directions to restaurant selections. The room was wide open and very spacious. The only thing that wasn't the best was we had booked 3 nights and upon arrival we were informed we would have to be moved to a different room after the first night. The were very nice about it and moved our luggage and everything for us even though it was just next door. We spent one night in the Eleonara room and the next two in Gemma room, both were very nice and spacious.

We loved this hotel, and it was our favorite out of the 4 we stayed in while traveling around Italy. It is centrally located and on a beautiful piazza. My husband, sister, and I stayed in the Arnolfo 2-bedroom suite, which overlooks the piazza. My parents stayed in Beatrice, which included breakfast. They absolutely loved it as well! I have recommended this hotel to family and co-workers since, and they have also raved about it. I wouldn't stay anywhere else if I return to Florence someday!

Room Tip: Pack light! Big flight of stairs and no elevator!

We loved our stay at the Casa del Garbo. The staff was wonderful, the Cosimo room was perfect, and everything was very clean. The location couldn't have been better. Breakfast was very nice (pastries, fruit, coffees).

My only slight issue was the shower, because the shower door was pretty inadequate and even just using the handheld showerhead it was nearly impossible not to flood the bathroom floor.

My wife and I traveled to Florence to visit our daughter who is studying there this spring. We found La Casa del Garbo to be a wonderful place to stay. Located right on the Piazza del Signoria, right across from the Ufizzi Museum, it couldn't have a better location. The rooms are beautifully decorated, with marble bathrooms that were modern and clean. We were there off-season, so we had the place to ourselves for most of the time. But the service was very attentive. We had breakfast served every morning from 8 to 9:30, and on the days we slept in because of the time lag, they happily brought breakfast to our room. We stayed in the Gemma room which was plenty big and looked out across the Piazza. We especially enjoyed the service of Vigilo (sp?) who serves breakfast everyday, cleans the rooms, and is always helpful with a tip or whatever you need. The office staff was also helpful, and helped us book dinner reservations, as well as found us a wonderful American Bakery across the Ponte Vecchio. We stayed six days, and would look into it again if we ever came back.

Of the three places we stayed during our trip through Italy, this was my favorite.
We could not ask for a better location for seeing the sights on our agenda.
Uffizi is around the corner, Duomo, Ponte Vecchio, and Santa Croce are all within 5 minutes walk.
The staff is exceptional. We asked for recommendations daily for dinner. They graciously made reservations for us as Ristorante del Fagioli, Hostaria il desco, and La Galleria. All were wonderful authentic Italian dining experiences.
The rooms on the "first floor" is what I would call the 2nd floor. There are probably 20+ stairs to the reception room (office) and 1st floor rooms. This would not be good for someone with difficulty with stairs.
There is free wi-fi, which we learned based on our other hotels, is a luxury. We used skype daily to talk with our kids, so this was important to us.
The room was large and comfortable. There was a great view of Piazza Della Signoria. The bathroom was quite nice and large. Even the hairdryer worked well- which again was not the same case in other hotels.
We got dessert from the restaurant directly downstairs. Apparently "to go" isn't common there. They restaurant did allow us to take the plates, etc to our room and return them the next morning. I though that was nice and certainly not required.
We did not have issues with the noise in the plaza, but it could be issues for light sleepers.
Great place..... I would choose to go back should we go to Florence again.
