From the moment we arrived in Piazza della Signoria to the moment we left, we felt very fortunate to have booked this B&B. The location is amazing and within easy walking distance to almost anything you want to do in Florence.
The rooms were a really nice size, with comfortable beds, large bathrooms and FREE Wifi which allowed us to use our iPhones to plan our day and to find restaurants for dinner. We didn't have a room overlooking the Piazza, but you are in Florence, how much time are you going to spend in your room anyway? The rooms also had a mini-bar/fridge so we were able to store water and keep it cold for when we went out walking.
The staff in the office was extremely helpful, whether it was to book dinner reservations or reserve a time for the Uffizi or the Galleria dell'Accademia, which helped us avoid the long lines. The breakfast was really good, offering a variety of pastry, meats, cheese, fresh fruit and perhaps the best melon I have eaten in my entire life. The men who worked the kitchen were so helpful in the morning - they replaced anything if food ran out, they made fresh cappucino and provided us with bottled water that we took with us for the day.
I hope that one day when we have the fortune to make it back to Florence this place is still here and still amazing. If anyone I know is going to Florence I will definitely recommend La Casa del Garbo.
Note, if you can't walk up or carry your luggage up the stairs, this isn't the place for you.
