La Casa del Garbo
Ranked #36 of 659 Florence B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 August 2017

We absolutely loved our stay here. The hotel is in what feels like a secret corner of the busy and dramatic Piazza della Signoria, in walking distance of nearly every major sight in Florence. The hotel is in a former convent and so has large wooden beams and deep-set windows that look right onto the piazza. The breakfast was simple but satisfying with fresh fruit and cappuccinos, and Bruno and Claudia were friendly and helpful and helped us send out our laundry. The shower was large and modern - not true at other hotels we stayed at! - and the wifi was strong (ditto). Would return without question.

Book this hotel ASAP. This was one of my wife's and I's favorite hotel of all time.

Great location right in the heart of Florence.

Amazing staff! Solid food.

We could not have been happier with our stay here.

I stumbled upon Casa Garbo when booking for Florence and booked it mainly because of its great location (near Uffitzi & Ponte Vecchio). The location was GREAT - overlooking Palazzo Vecchio. This is billed as a B&B and it is, technically but it felt more like we had our own personal apartment in the center of Florence. We took the room with a view over the Piazza. The Piazza was where all the action was, but the room had nice thick windows and the action finished early. The owners don't live on site but were available during the day to help us arrange taxi & laundry services. We felt free to come and go as we pleased. Felt more like an apartment with breakfast & maid service.

Room Tip: We upgraded to a room with a view of the piazza

Extremely charming old work hotel in an amazing location. Nothing was more than a 10 minute walk and lots of wonderful restaurants, museums and shopping right out the door. They have a very small breakfast room so they brought our breakfast to us in our room each morning which was lovely. The staff was very helpful with dinner reservations, directions and calling a taxi. We were a family of four and had a large room on the top floor and a smaller room on the floor below for our teenage boys - it was the perfect set-up. We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Our room was amazing, but didn't have a view of the piazza. If that's important you should r...

My wife and I (both seniors) spend a month each spring in Europe. We generally avoid hotels, which in most European cities are tiny and over-priced, in favor of apartment rental. Since we were would only be in Florence for two nights, we decided to give a B&B a try. It worked out every well.

First, La Casa Garbo is perfectly located. You are, literally, a few steps from all of the sights you've come to Florence to see. Second, it's quiet. Even though you are right in the heart of Florence, there is no street noise (we were in "Leonardo"). Third, and MOST IMPORTANT, your host is perfectly friendly and helpful. We needed to exchange vouchers for actual pre-timed admission tickets and didn't know exactly where to go. A few seconds later, after a phone call and a Google search by our host, we know precisely where and when to go. More than service, there was a sense of someone who actually liked doing their job and helping guests.

The breakfast is fine. We had it delivered to our room each morning, which was a great convenience.

Bottom line: you will not go wrong staying at Casa Garbo. We would recommend it it friends and family without hesitation.
