“Ssssh, don't tell anyone. This has the best room in Florence!”
Reviewed 26 June 2012

Wow! Just wow. My family and I spent 2 nights in the Lorenzo Suite here in June. Centrally located and with views directly over Piazza Della Signoria I defy you to find a better located residence in Florence. Our suite with hallway, lounge seating and king size bed also had it's own kitchen and dining area with 3 windows opening onto the wonderful piazza and opposite the Palazzo Vecchio. We had breakfast brought to our room each morning and ate while the city woke up beneath us.
This is quite simply a magical gem everyone travelling to Florence should know about. Once visited, never forgotten. Tutto Bellissimo!

My parents stayed here in 2011 and recommended this B&B to me. The location is absolutely perfect, as the rooms look right out over Piazza della Signoria. We stayed in the Leonardo suite, which is very large and has a separate kitchen. The service was great, and they brought us breakfast each morning (croissants, juice and fruit). You cannot beat the location either, as everything in Florence is a 5-10 min walk from here. Finally, I thought that the price was very reasonable, esp considering the location and size of the room.

I would definitely stay here again.

since ten years we are for holidays in Florence and we stayed in different five star hotels.
Now we discovered an excellent alternative with very strong points.
A better price, a better location an a better service and this on half of the price of other hotels
in Florence. We can recommend this bed and breakfast La Casa del Garbo in the historical
center of Florence all the rooms have a splendid view on the Palazzo Vechio and the
Galleria Uffizi. The price is correct, the service is excellent and you feel at home.
The breakfast is very good and friendly served.
We recommend this B&B go there in you shall be positively surprised.

Room Tip: choose an appartement or if you want more space a suite with kitchen

The Gemma Room in this little hotel is just as well appointed and charming as the online photo. The staff was helpful, and the cold breakfast quite good. I would have given it a five rating if it weren't for the noise on the piazza below. Our room was on the front with a charming view of the Palazzo Vecchio. But we were there on a Saturday night, and even with earplugs it was impossible to tune out the revelers who kept it up the noise until about 2 a.m. Sunday and Monday nights the noise ended much earlier. Yes, Euro 2012 was going on and restaurants had set up TV screens outside. But the noise continued after the games ended.

Room Tip: Rooms on the piazza have a great view and it's fun to watch the crowds below. But for a quieter...

We wanted to have something central and with some room to move after leaving Venice, so we booked 2 apartments. When we arrived we realized we could have been put into the one apartment because they were really large apartments.
Clean, comfortable and above all wireless that works and central to all facilities.
Don't get trapped and walk out your door and go to the first couple of restaurants on your right because they are expensive and are not very good......
It would have been good if they had a washing machine and dryer in the rooms then I would have been very happy but the laundromat is only 500m away and cheap. All in all very good place to stay.

Room Tip: Ask for the ones facing the piazza as this give you the most amazing view.
