“Excellent Choice for a stay in Florence!”
Reviewed 7 April 2013

My husband and I stayed at Casa del Garbo for 3 nights in August 2012. We absolutely loved this B&B and it actually may be my favorite B&B in all of Italy. Great service, beautiful room and furnishings, perfect breakfast! We stayed in the Beatrice room. It was beautifully decorated and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was equiped with everything you needed with a great shower and pretty tile. Breakfast was served by two very attentive waiters (in white coats!), who provided made to order espresso or cappuccino. Breakfast included juice, a fine selection of lunchmeats, fruit, and pastry. The location right on the Piazza della Signoria! Just a fantastic location!!! We were not bothered by any noise at night... it was actually very quiet and peaceful in our room which was one that did not face the piazza. The value for this property is fantastic! I want to return to Firenze and stay here for a month! The manager/proprietor was very accomodating with suggestions for local restaurants too. Very romantic too!!

Room Tip: Inside rooms are a terrific bargain

Casa del Garbo doesn't look like much from the outside, but once we were shown into our room (Suite Lorenzo), we were really stunned. It is not really a room but a spacious apartment - entrance hall, well-sized bathroom, big living-room/bedroom, appointed kitchen with dining table, separate small bedroom for our son, beautiful decor, high ceilings... and a view of Piazza della Signoria to die for from all four windows. If Florence were not the gorgeous city it is it would have been hard to leave the room at all! Breakfast was delivered every morning, so we started our day looking at Palazzo Vecchio, and in fact we decided to buy food at one of the takeaway places nearby and have dinner at home too, looking again at the Palazzo beautifully lighted at night and sipping Chianti. We were celebrating my husband's birthday, and he was over the moon!

The staff were very courteous too. The girl at reception offered to make a reservation for the Uffizzi Gallerry, which meant skipping a big line, and she also helped us with printing some train tickets. We would have been happy to stay for longer. All in all, a great experience.

This is my second time at this B&B, I find it a great place to stay for its value. I only go when it is low season! The room is fantastic and very big......the view on to the Piazza is also a bonus. Only thing that I have had problems with is the hot water......they never have enough hot water. This I forgot when I went back the second time...nice big showers and no hot water. The breakfast is great and nicely set up. I would recommend this place at low season rates only.

This is the best possible location to walk everywhere. From our window over looking the Piazza Signorina we saw the David and other artwork. The room is actually an apartment that is comfortable, spacious and well equipped. The service is terrific with breakfast in the room if desired. We had a car and parking can be arranged.

Room Tip: Ask for the Leonardo Devinci room.

Stayed here for second time, 5 years since last here and as good as remembered. Location is brillant, on piazza signoria so can pop back to room easily for breaks during the day. Rooms and bathroom spacious, no bath but I think that's not unusual in Italy. Breakfast is fresh; fruit, rolls, ham, cheese and pastries and great coffee. Staff are friendly and helpful. Love this place and would think about booking the apartment if we come back with the kids some day. Only negatives; first night the piazza was a bit noisy but that may have been one off as I didn't notice that the other two nights. Got two recommendations for dinner from the front desk, first one was good value but thought the second 'la galleria' was overpriced for what you got and a bit touristy.

Great B&B in a perfect location with a very helpful and friendly staff. Walk most anywhere from this location or use the train/bus station which is close by. Terrific recommendations for dinners in the less "touristy" restaurants in Florence by Natalia. We spent five nights there and would have been happy to stay longer.

absolutely a great stay in the heart of a famous Piazza della Signoria Florence. Reasonably price bed and breakfast that gives you great service, clean room and an beautiful view of the piazza. Walking distance to museums and Cathedral.
