we travel a lot and this has to be one of the best 'value for money places we have stayed in. The room was huge; the bathroom large and well fitted; the decor was beautiful; breakfast and coffee very good (though would have killed for an egg!); service consistently warm and helpful. Location couldn't be better. We'll be back!

We stayed a whole week at La Casa Del Garbo and did not regret it at all. We really loved the place. The location was just perfect ! Every important monument is in short walkable distance. Staff was very friendly and supportive. The rooms are very tastefully decorated. Our room was facing la Piazza della Signoria and we had a wonderful view - we could not wished for a better one. Having a view like this you of course have to take into account that it is not the quietest place on earth. But we did not care, closed the windows and slept very well. We also had the chance to enjoy the opera "La Traviata" from our room which was performed on the Piazza at one evening. It was wonderful.
We definitely can recommend this B&B. We cannot support some negative reviews on this site. Of course you have to take into account that it is a B&B and not a hotel. So you cannot expect to have 24-hrs reception or full hotel service. (Note: there is free Wifi.)

Would definitely stay again but next time...Pillows - should have asked for more pillows!

Please note that there isn't an elevator so be prepared to haul your bags up stairs! If you are on the top floor...it is a good workout! The staff is very helpful and asked if I needed assistance.

There isn't a bar or restaurant IN the Inn, but there are places to go for a snack/drink right next door.

This B&B is perfect for couples looking for a quiet, quaint, clean room with simple and professional service/staff. Wi-Fi connection was a great touch. Did not eat any breakfasts with them while there, but it appeared to be a nice arrangement. The room was clean and comfortable. Best of all was the location - less than 1/4 mile to the Uffizi, maybe 1/2 mile to the Academia (David sculpture), and right on a main Piazza in the heart of Florence. Would definitely stay there again. The only drawback was that we were on the top floor, so we didn't have a view over the Piazza, but it was so much quieter, we appreciated it.

Room Tip: Don't book the top floor room with big luggage

When reviewing so many hotels it's hard to know if you picked the right one. We did! The location was absolutely perfect. The rooms were decorated so nice. They were spacious and clean. Out of all the cities the staff was the most helpful here. They made several arrangements ahead of time for us and many recommendations that made our time in Florence wonderful. Especially the driver they hired to take us through Tuscany wine tasting. The whole trip was arranged wonderful. The staff also took great pride in their establishment as the should have and the location couldn't have been better!

Room Tip: Book well ahead of time as they fill up fast.
