A great place to stay in Florence clean and tidy wonderful helpful efficient staff with a beautiful breakfast. Florence was a frenzy of tourists and it was lovely to get away into the cool quiet of our room and watch the swarm of tourists from our window when we needed to rest.

We stayed in Casa del Garbo in the Arnolfo suite for four nights. It was in an amazing location, literally right in piazza della Signoria. It was nice to have a little kitchen, for breakfast, drinks and snacks. It was however slightly annoying to climb up three flights of narrow stairs (there is no elevator), especially with our luggage or... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in July. The 1st 2 nights were in the top floor attic apartment. The AC worked but it just barely got cold enough for us. The last night we were on the 2nd floor in a smaller room and we really like this room much better. Overall we have no real complaints, the price... More

I booked this hotel for the last night of my trip, based on Trip Advisor recommends. I was a bit concerned both due to the very low price and to the location right on Piazza della Signoria (in re: noise). Not to worry!! The room was lovely, with everything you might want (ie air conditioning, WiFi, TV, bidet), and the... More

Room was nice and clean and was a great size. Bathroom was large and so was the rain shower. Bed was comfy and the location can't be beat, being right in Piazza della Signoria. Although we had a pretty good experience with the room and location, there were a few bumps with service that made us leave with a sour... More

This B&B is top notch. The location is out of this world. It is located in the heart of one of the most beautiful squares in Florence. You could open your windows and experience the magic of Florence at any time of the day. The apartment was roomy and nicely decorated, and the staff was great. The breakfast (which is... More

it's not often you find somewhere to stay that actually surpasses the hotel website, well, La Casa del Garbo does just that. From the assistance making our booking to be shown our beautiful room tastefully decorated in the style of the area, we could not have been happier. We stayed in the Lorenzo suite which had a small kitchen and... More

First off, let me say this place is in an AMAZING location. I think the only place that would be better is to be on the river, but we have a full plaza view out three windows. So, we are in the Leonardo Suite at this bed and breakfast. This is on the second floor (note that the ground floor... More
