I highly recommend this B&B. The breakfast was amazing - delicious croissants, hams, cheeses, fruit, etc. The woman at the front desk was very helpful and friendly. We ended up at this hotel after B&B Galileo 2000 basically overbooked and tried to send us to a hotel out by the train station (stay away from B&B Galileo 2000 - very... More

We stayed here on our honeymoon earlier this month for 4 nights. This B&B is right in the middle of piazza della signoria - our room had a window which overlooked the piazza (facing palazzo vecchio). I guess some might find it noisy, but we live in a big city so this didn't bother us at all. VERY convenient location.... More

We unfortunately only stayed here for one night and we wished we had had more time. The hotel is located through an inconspicuous doorway within the piazza next door to the Gucci museum. Our room was amazing, spacious and well decorated with a view out over the piazza which was lovely to look out on especially at night. The breakfast... More

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
