“The perfect place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 December 2011

We stayed 2weeks in Florence at the Casa el Garbo and stayed in 4 of the 6 units. What a fantastic experience and location. Natalia the maion property manager was wonderful. She took care of all our needs and was always pleaseant to work with.Virgilio and Bobby were on it all the time and when I got a touch of the flu made me fresh squezed orang juice every morning. What a wonderful staff. We were right on the square and the view from the large front apartments was fantastic. The inner rooms not facing the street were spaciopus, well appointed and modearatly priced. I can not think of a better location!!! So close to so many sights and so affordable. We were there in November and not a carowd in sight. We payed less than 100 Euro a night and if had stayed in the inner rooms it would have been 80 euro. We plan to stay there when we go back It has to be one of the best experiences at a B&B we have ever had.

Room Tip: For the value the inner rooms with no view are well worh ita as you are out and about any way. So la...

I stayed in this wonderful B&B for 6 days during my Italy trip. Situated at Piazza Signoria and easily accessible to the main attractions in Florence, its location couldn't have been better. I loved seeing the beautiful Palazzo Vecchio on my way out and back everyday. The rooms were exquisitely decorated in the Florentine style and exhibited a kind of Renaissance look. The staffs were extremely service-oriented and served a pretty decent breakfast. Natalie really gave good travelling tips and recommendations about food. To me, Florence is the highlight of my trip and this B&B certainly contributed significantly to making this an unforgettable experience!

We were four friends traveling on vacation and we chose the Michaelangelo Suite because it had two bedrooms however it only had one bath. This did not seem to be a problem for us but should be noted when reviewing rooms. Our suite overlooked Piazza Signora and was within walking distance to many attractions. The service was great and Natalia recommended a couple really great restaurants. The breakfast in the morning was very nice. I plan to go back to Florence and would stay here again.

This B&B is actually on the Palazzo Vecchio, what a brilliant location! I was just staying there for 2 nights in November 2011 and it was cold in the city; however, the rooms were warm and comfortable. The rooms are huge, I had a double room with a large and very clean and well presented bathroom. The breakfast was continental with bread, cold meats and cheese and lots of fruit - certainly filling enough. The staff were veryfriendly and helpful, so I certainly recommend staying here.

Wonderful location inside the piazza and very easy to walk to from the train station (less than 15 min). The room we had was Beatrice and it was spacious as was the bathroom. The hot water in the shower was consistent and the entire place kept very clean. The breakfast was well presented with juice, cafe latte or Americano coffee or espresso fresh fruit, cold cuts, cheese and rolls. The workers at breakfast were so nice as were the front desk staff. They all had good dinner recommendations. This was our favorite B&B's of our trip to Italy. Good internet connection. (fast)

Room Tip: Any room is good. We had the least expensive one and were quite pleased. No view but we were out s...

Our trip to Italy started with Florence and the Casa Del Garbo. It's a great location! Our room was large and quiet and comfortable. Natalia was helpful and accommodating and the overall experience was very postitive. I would most definitely stay there again.

Location has never been better. It's at Piazza Signoria. Accessible to any other locations from here. Replicate of David is right here! We can see it and the square from our room.
We had the Lorenzo room and Gemma room. Excellent rooms. You will get exactly what you see from their website. Usually the photos from the websites are photoshoped or a little less grand. But this is different. I'm very impressed and truly satisfied with the rooms.
The hotel is quite different from the ones we had stayed in Milan & Venice. It's like an apartment, less commercialized, more quaint, bright and light, very clean, equiped with kitchen facilities and a small dining room!
There's a breakfast area and it's perfect. If you have the Lorenzo room, you can choose to have breakfast in your room. Selection is very limited but that's the usual standard in Italy/Europe. Bread with ham and/or spread, and coffee/tea/bottled juice.
One note though, there's no elevator or lift in the building. Pack light as you will be the one carrying it up the stairs.

Room Tip: For triple sharing, the extra bed will be tucked away in another section of the Lorenzo room. So rem...
